Washington DC, July 4 (ANI): Over 30 Nobel laureates recently assembled and appealed nations to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015 to take useful steps to limit future global emissions to protect the climate.
Laureates, who were gathered at the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on July 3, on Mainau Island on Lake Constance, signed ‘Mainau Declaration 2015 on Climate Change’ and asked all the nations around the world to take appropriate actions to stop global warming.
The Nobel laureates’ declaration is another urgent warning of the consequences of climate change stating that if the increasing demand of food, water, and energy is left unchecked then it will eventually overwhelm the Earth’s ability to satisfy humanity’s needs, and will lead to big human tragedy.
It is expected that a new international agreement on climate protection will be approved at the 21st UN Climate Conference to succeed the Kyoto Protocol.
Notably, in addition to the numerous laureates of the medicine, physics or chemistry Nobel Prizes, the speakers also included Indian Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi and Nigerian Nobel Literature Laureate Wole Soyinka. (ANI)
