Israel government reports that they will cut the emission of carbon by 85% from 2015 levels by 2050. Israelian prime minister said the decision will be helpful in gradually shifting to a low carbon economy. They signed the Paris climate deal and set themselves an interim goal of cutting emissions by 27% by 2030.
The plan is to target emissions from the transport sector, electricity sector, and municipal waste. However, critics aim for more ambitious targets for renewable energy and bigger economic incentives for change. Since the industrial era has begun, the world has warmed up by about 1.2C, and if there are no proper measures taken it will keep on rising. Governments around the world need to take necessary measures to steep cut the emission.
In line with the 2015 Paris climate agreement, Israel was targeting to legally bind with an international treaty on climate change which is already adopted by 200 countries. Prime minister Naftali Bennett said the move will lead to a clean and efficient and competitive economy. He further added that this will put Israel at the forefront of the battle against climate change. The target is to keep global temperature below 2.0C above pre-industrial times. If things are favorable they even plan to reduce it to 1.5C above pre-industrial time.
