Intervention on CDM

Intervention on CDM in the CMP, by Fiu Elisara

Delivered at the CMP plenary at the UNFCCC COP16 in Cancun, Mexico
December 1, 2010
 
Fellow humans,
 
Much of this planet is drying or floodingevidence of about ocean outgassing, reduced primary production and the crossing of new ecological tipping points are clear. No one even knows whether we’ve already passed the point of no return for this planet. What we do know is that in my Pacific region, many countries will not survive this century if no deep emission cuts in the order of 50% by 2017 compared to 1990 levels are agreed upon now.
 
Yet, developed countries are delaying these talks, reforming fraudulent market mechanisms and ignoring fundamental flaws in existing crediting methodologies that result in the issuance of millions of bogus carbon credits. The proposals to change the rules related to LULUCF and the CDM are examples. This will not social and environmental havoc, and place a time bomb under the climate regime. 

We call on delegates to thoroughly assess the environmental integrity of all baseline and monitoring methodologies, tools, and address deficits as a matter of utmost priority. 

Finally, we demand emission cuts at sources, repayment of the climate and ecological debt, sufficient, equitable funding for mitigation and adaptation, and the estimated 1.7 trillion USD per year spent on military aggression be better used.
 
Thank you.

  1. Les envío un saludo esperando se encuentren bien.
    Mi nombre es Ernesto Chanes, estudiante de Doctorado en Biodiversidad y Conservación, me encuentro trabajando con los bosques de haya mexicanos (Fagus grandifolia var. mexicana) la cual es una especie endémica y en peligro de extinción.
    Lo que quiero ver es qué factores ambientales afectan positiva o negativamente su prevalencia en los bosques de niebla, ya que los fragmentos de bosques de haya son muy pequeños.
    Quisiera preguntarles si ustedes podrían participar de alguna manera en este estudio.
    LA PROBLEMÁTICA QUE PRESENTA EL BOSQUE ES:
    1)CAMBIO CLIMÁTICO, YA QUE ES UNA ESPECIE NEÁRTICA
    2)POR LAS ACTIVIDADES ANTRÓPICAS (TALA, RECOLECTA DE SUS SEMILLAS, POTREROS)

    Les agradecería su respuesta
    saludos!!
