Fossil Kyoto Protocol was established to prevent

Fossil fuels are slowly destroying our ecosystem. They are causing air pollution which in turn can cause global warming. It will take a very long time for the people to change from fossil fuels to renewable energy, but during all of this time the air will still be polluted. The Kyoto Protocol was established to prevent this from happening.The Kyoto Protocol is an agreement that many of the world’s industrial nations agreed to cut down on their usage of greenhouse gases to stop global warming. It was established on December 11th, 1997 and actually put into play on February 16th, 2005. (e.p.a.). Over 150 countries signed the Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol calls countries to cut air pollution in order to fix the Greenhouse Effect. The Greenhouse effect is the warming of Earth due to the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.  Although there are many countries that are a part of the Kyoto Protocol, the United States are not, because it costs to much. Many countries have already started to cut down on fossil fuels. Instead they have been using geothermal and hydroelectric power plants. There are many other renewable resources but scientists predicted that one third of the world’s electricity will run on wind by the year 2050. Many wind farms have already started emerging all over the world, including the U.S. There are many organizations that are trying to achieve this goal including Greenpeace and The Worldwatch Institute (Appleby 407).Greenpeace is a non-governmental organization that protest to try to expose environmental problems that are ruining our planet.  They began in 1971 when a small group of people went to protest U.S. nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska.  They have grown since then and have offices in over 50 countries. They have many different programs but i am going to discuss their program for fighting global warming. We have seen many major catastrophes all connected to climate-change such as major floods, wildfires, and hurricanes just in the previous few years. They believe that Donald Trump is denying that there is any climate change  and that he is still drilling and mining all of these unstable fuels. They want to build a future that runs completely on renewable energy.The Worldwatch Institute uses research and outreach to try and create a sustainable world for mankind. They began in 1974 by Lester Brown as an independent research institute dedicated to deal with global environmental concerns. They would like to build a “low carbon future” which in turn means an electricity based economy. They believe that an energy revolution is coming and that it’s going to be as important, and  as revolutionary,  as the discovery of oil. They have two other programs as well. One for Food and Agriculture and one for Environment and Society. Their program for food and agriculture tries to highlight the benefits for farmers, customers, and environments that can help the food grow and make it accessible to support many people.
