Message, 

We want all people to participate now in a movement to Be Green.  We ask that you go through your house and organize containers to be sure what you use will be recycled, or reused. Our goal is to encourage all to refuse plastic products and reduce your use of plastic, specifically straws, bottles and food containers. Where ever you find a piece of plastic, pic it up and recycle it.  Save our water , save our fish, save our forests.  We ask all people to pay attention to their habits and take action to Be Green.

 

Our planet in 2030 needs to be cleaned up and full of beauty, like our grandparents new it to be.  We deserve a healthy safe environment that’s beautiful.  We are taking action now. 

Save our planet from anymore man made destruction .  We are conservationists, environmentalist and activists.

Green House Gas is a gas heat which absorbs and sits radiant energy within Thermal Infrared Range.  It is made of Co2, Co2 Fossil fuels, Methane, Nitrous Oxide.  It changes our land use.

 

The Paris Agreement is an agreement through the United Nations framework Convention on Climate Change dealing with greenhouse gas emissions mitigation, adaption, and finance parties adopted December 12, 2015.  As of February 2018, 195 UNFCCC members have signed the agreement.  Goal is too limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In the Paris Agreement, each country determines, plans and regularly reports its own contribution it should make in order to mitigate global warming.
