Climate: Climate: Some Alarming Figures!
“Climate change is being registered around the world and warming of the climate system is unequivocal. Since the 1950s many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. Our assessment finds that the atmosphere and oceans have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, sea level has risen and the concentration of carbon dioxide has increased to a level unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years” (IPCC Press Release, November 2014).
95% It is the degree of certainty, described as "extremely probable", that human activity is the main cause of the warming observed since the middle of the 20th century.
4.8 ° C the increase in average surface temperatures of the planet by 2100 compared to the period 1986-2005, if the emission of greenhouse gases continues at their current rate (between 0.3°C and 3.1°C).
98 CM of ocean level rise in 2100 compared to the period 1986-2005, in the most pessimistic scenario. According to the latest IPCC report, the ocean level has risen by 19 cm since the end of the 19th century. 54% Annual CO2 emissions from human sources (fossil fuels, cement production) over the period 2002-2011.
-70% This is the necessary reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, methane and nitrous oxide) in 2050 compared to their level of 2010 to maintain the average increase in temperatures below 2°C.

COP21 in Paris
COP21, which took place in Paris in 2015, made it possible to conclude a historic agreement to replace the extension of the Kyoto protocol from 2020 onwards.
151 heads of states and governments from around the world participated in this COP and confirmed their mobilization and political commitment to make the Paris Conference a success.
COP22 in Marrakech
A 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) was held in Marrakech, Morocco in November 2016.
COP22 took over from a COP21 in which significant progress was made. It sought to implement the various axes set out in the Paris Agreement, in particular those relating to multi-billion-dollar and multi-million-dollar support measures for clean technologies, capacity-building to Climate action plans, and initiatives to enhance food security and water supply in developing countries and responsiveness to gender issues.
COP23 to Bonn
Through the Light Us caravan and its Sustainable Relay, the MIPAI association wanted to demonstrate that we can now travel long distances in an electric vehicle, thus enticing the Mediterranean people to change their way of traveling to preserve the environment. For this year of 2017, 20 TESLA cars will migrate from Morocco to Germany, the hosting country of the COP23 under the chairmanship of Fiji with Light Us on board.BECOME A VOLUNTEER
