“Business as usual not acceptable as risk of climate change escalates”

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, Director General of TERI, told the audience at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, UAE last week, that “business as usual [is] not acceptable as risk of climate change escalates,” and that an upsurge in action at the grassroots level is needed

The UAE Minister of Environment and Water said the procedures in the financing funds that have decided to be established by Copenhagen accords, must be simplified.

He also pointed to the need to subdue the constraints that might hinder developing nations from receiving the financial support and access to new technologies such as for renewable energy that they need.

The World Future Energy Summit session saw the panel discuss how much industrialised countries are willing to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases.

H.E. Jonas Gahr Støre, Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs added: “Copenhagen was far away from filling all our expectations, but we must see it as a start.”
