A historic paris accord was signed on the 22nd of april in New-York. The main goal of this accord is to unite forces of 175 countries in order to slow the global warming.

The Paris Agreement refers to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and is aimed at the establishment of measures to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere after 2020. It was prepared during the Climate Change Conference in Paris on 12th December 2015 and agreed by consensus. Earlier, at the climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009, the countries could not agree on the issue of emissions. The Kyoto Protocol can be considered as the predecessor of the Paris Agreement.

According to the katehon think-tank analysis:

Initially, attempts by some countries to limit carbon dioxide emissions have been criticized by developing countries. An example of this is the position of Bolivia, which highlighted serious abuse on the part of the developed capitalist countries in relation to the environment in the previous period (the twentieth century). According to the Bolivian leadership, currently some "First World” countries want to simply limit the further technological developments of other powers (formerly, the initiators agreement would oblige developing countries to pay quotas for carbon dioxide emissions).

Of course, the agreement reflects a secular way of thinking, since the position of any religion on carbon dioxide emissions are of no importance, and all global processes take place according to the Creator's plan.

In addition, the role of transnational corporations remains unclear. Since the 90’s, many companies moved their industry sector (which was especially harmful) to the countries of Asia and Latin America. Also, if during the debates on the future of the Internet globalists promote the concept of multilateralism (i.e. roles and responsibilities between both companies and countries), such zeal is not observed in regards to environmental responsibility. Although logical, it seems to oblige corporations to implement "green" equipment and to pay the necessary compensation from the profits.
