Man appreciates, welcomes the birth of the organization IRENA very much but the people do more disappointed of the outcome of the Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen in october through december 2009 ! Look for things related to the International Summit on Climate Change - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) -: In the running race against time to save our earth danger was open many new relations to the force in the state of the national communication. At the international conference APEC in Thailand, the United States of America and China as to impose the viewpoint and calendar with the rest of the world about the President Barrack Obama and President Hu Jintao rejected his two terms for too "hard bondages" to the last minute and then both he expressed the goodwill; The European Union (EU) in Brussels / Belgium, from the beginning, they have set out ambitious goals for reduction 20% of CO2 emissions, cause harmful effects such as glass, in 2020 and hopefully convince more partners around the world. Acknowledged the efforts of the heads of many countries before the meeting time: The present of U.S. President, Barack Obama in Copenhagen is not a job which has not intentionally, he had the same discussion with China´s leader before, he also spent time to discuss seriously on environment in recent days as Prime Minister to India in the capital Washington DC.

French president to pick the president in Brazil during a visit to visit the past and then President Sarkozy to Manaus, the largest city in the Amazonian region, ,- this was dubbed Paris tropics , the place more primitive forest, the lungs of the earth - to persuade countries in the region together "to a higher goal for expected climate change conference in Copenhagen. Parallel to the Minister of Environment of France was sent to China and to talk with leaders in Beijing about the climate & environment.
Chancellor of Germany, Mrs. Angela Merkel and her government officials has already spent a lot of time for this hot topic! Many of the head of state have put so much effort, first by the environment and climate problem today related to the survival of man, of all mankind on the situation of both a model of development, design outlines for the future generations. Contributing to the pollution, protect the environment clean will be a long-term process, very expensive, higher cost more money and effort. However, no country wanted to be responsible for failure of the international summit on climate change (IPCC).
Public opinion around the world are waiting for concrete results from the Copenhagen Conference, the world is ready for production workers in the technology "green and clean". and as they are in any diplomatic effort to avoid being crashed into the isolated, lost prestige. Press that objectives of 17% reduction in CO2 emissions in 2020 compared with 2005 levels of less than ! In the words as a diplomat in Europe is: 17% reduction targets CO2 is a commitment with calculated "actual & feasible" and that decision has forced a country like China must also be up free record on the environment.
According trend of evolution of humanity, today many unions, organizations and personal advancement in the world always struggle, protest activities and policies of any political trends that have intentions use nuclear fuel to serve the war ; They are of normal persons who have human hearts than popular affection peace, hate terrorist acts, causing bloodshed, war, they also love the nature, cherish critical habitat of the human and they also feel a responsibility to the land, the rivers, the ocean, scenes and the environment in which they are living; as a French scholar once wrote: "We not inherit the land of the ancestors, but we just borrowing of our children only !
