Buenos Aires through my eyes

Argentina has its problems but…

February 15, 2016

Argentina has its problems but they are largely home made. Effects of global warming is not one of them.

There appears to be accepted a not very-well validated opinion that global warming is caused by human-made environmental pollution.  China leads the list of “polluters” by contributing 27% of the total global carbon dioxide from the consumption of energy, with the USA featuring second with contributing 17%, followed by Russia with 5%, India with 5% and Japan with 4%, i.e., 58% of the pollution is being generated by just 5 (FIVE) countries.

Argentina does not even appear on the list of first 20 polluters; it occupies position 59 of the total of some 100+ countries. 

It is then not laughable that huge amount of effort (including not so green travel) and money have been spent on Governments “talking”; there have been 21 conferences since 1992 producing nothing more than non-binding commitments lacking enforcement mechanisms.

Argentina will no doubt suffer disproportional consequences of global warming but cannot do anything about it.
