  • 1. GLOBAL WARMING ANDTHE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY Done by: Levon Minassian Michael Rozynski Tatiana Stepanova Scarlett Yeiser Kim Laura Silva Martin Cuevas

2. INTRODUCTION

  • International communitys action on global warmingis important because it can set laws, regulations, and policies which determine the proper way of serving the worlds energy needs through a collective effort.

3. Our goal is for the international community to reduce global warming by enacting effective legislation limiting greenhouse gas emissions, investing in more sustainable energy sources and division 4. GOAL Our hope for the international community is that it enacts policies, laws, and regulations that reduce carbon parts per million to a safe level while transitioning to more environmentally sustainable practices. This proposal will retard the global warming threat and allow future generations more adequate time to adjust to a changing environment while at the same time reducing our own carbon footprint. 5.
