World Cooperation
The threat of global climate change has become increasingly accepted by people around the world. It has become clear that human activity is exacerbating the risk: Cars, airplanes, factories and power stations are all potent sources of gas emissions which create a heat-trapping layer around the globe, heating up the planet.

Along with better understanding of the problem has come a growing literature devoted to finding solutions. Scientists from diverse fields such as meteorology, astronomy, chemical and physical engineering are working together on the problem. For now, the solutions are focused on new technological advances that will be environmentally friendly, as well as social change to reduce consumption of oil and natural gas. Sources of energy that are being explored include solar, wind and water power, as well as geothermal energy, which harnesses heat from deep inside the earth. Cars and trucks are now being built according to more stringent specifications for mileage per gallon as well as limits on carbon emissions.

International sanctions have been imposed on countries that are not doing their part. There still is no magic want that will solve all the environmental and energy problems in one blow.  However, we see how people around the world are uniting in the face of a common threat. We realize that global climate change affects all of us; this is an apolitical issue that crosses international boundaries, and we need to work together to find a solution.daytona there still is no magic want that will solve all the environmental and energy problems in one blow.l as limits on carbon

 It seems this unification of the global population is unprecedented in history. For generations, emperors sunk their resources and energy into waging war with one another, spreading destruction and disease in the process. Today, nations are investing energy in precisely the opposite purpose: the benefit of mankind as well as the planet as a whole, including plant and animal life.

 Over 16 years ago, the Lubavitcher Rebbe spoke about the phenomenon of world leaders gathering together to agree upon mutual reduction of arms and conversion of military equipment to peaceful uses. Since that time, the phenomenon as only expanded. As the Rebbe said, this is a result of the process of Redemption which we are now experiencing.

We are entering into a new era, in which all people of the world will recognize their common origin and joint responsibility to serve as stewards of the planet. Together we will harness our insights and creativity to ensure that the world we live in is a safe, clean place for all its inhabitants.
