Representatives of 150 countries from across the globe agreed to cut the use of GHGs (the greenhouse gases) that are mostly used in fridges and air conditioners. Vincent Biruta, Rwanda’s Minister of Natural Resources, said this as quoted by Reuters.
The countries signed the document, under which they are obliged to cut the GHG use by a certain deadline. The countries are divided into three groups with different deadlines for each group, depending on the level of their development.
The developed countries (the USA and most of the European countries) have their deadline of cutting the use of GHGs by ten percent until 2019. China has the deadline until 2024, while India, Pakistan and some other countries will have to freeze the GHG use at first, and then gradually cut the use of these gases.
The greenhouse gases have much more impact on climate changes than even carbon dioxide. Some rich and developed countries already said no to the use of GHGs.
