1SUBJECT OF

RESOLUTION: GLOBAL WARMING

3TO THE UNESCO:


4
5FULLY AWARE that global warming, a gradual increase in the overall temperature of
6earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased
7levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants, affects all of the
8Earth.

the

9HAVING EXAMINED that although some have argued that there has been a slowdown
10in rising global temperatures, several recent studies have disproved this slowdown and
11say that average temperatures could increase by up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit over the next
12100 years.
13NOTING that several side effects of global warming are deadly heat waves, droughts,
14flooding, coastal erosion, rising sea levels, and extinctions of plants and animals,
15RECOGNIZING that rising temperatures
16glaciers and ice sheets melt,

will drive up global sea levels as the worlds

17FUTHER RECOGNIZING that further global warming


18food production and growth to the spread of disease,

could affect everything from

19EMPHASIZING the countries most vulnerable to global warmings most serious side
20effects are among the poorest and least able to pay for the medical and social services and
21technological solutions that will be needed to adapt to climate change.
22ALARMED BY the crops, natural vegetation, and animals (including seafood) that
23sustain people maybe unable to adapt to local or regional changes in climate; ranges of
24diseases and insect pests that are limited by temperature may expand. All life on Earth
25will eventually die.
26CALLS UPON the countries of the world to begin a two-tier approach to avoid or limit
27some of the worst effects of climate change causing global warming, mitigation and
28adaptation:
29RECOMMENDS

that all countries begin to take mitigation steps now:

30
31
32

1. ADOPT energy-efficient technology and cleaner fuels by modernizing power


plants, generating cleaner electricity, reduce/eliminate emissions from
agricultural and industrial processes, and burning less fuel;

33
34

2. ENDORSES replacing fossil fuels with low-carbon sources like wind, solar,
hydroelectric, nuclear, geothermal, or carbon capture;

35

3. STRONGLY CONDEMNS cutting down forests;

36FUTHER

RECOMMENDS that all countries begin to take adaptation steps as well:

37

1. URGES energy conservation, and recycling;

38
39

2. ENDORSES more fuel-efficient vehicles and mass fuel-efficient transit


systems;

40

3. CALLS UPON sustainable area planning.

41SUPPORTS both a globally-coordinated response (international policies and agreements


42between countries, a push to cleaner form of energy by all), and local efforts on city and
43regional levels (public transit upgrades, energy efficient improvements, sustainable city
44planning).
45URGES citizens of the Earth
46causes of global warming.

to take immediate steps to reduce or eliminate human

47CONGRATULATES all countries willing to take into consideration the previously


48mentioned solutions and countries who have already begun the processes mentioned
49above to help slow global warming.
