Unfazed by the challenges of the multilateral negotiations, FSM President Peter M. Christian called on the world leaders at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco to maintain the momentum by “fighting the battles and climbing the mountains” to overcome such challenges in the continuing war to “save the planet and her people”.  In the presence of His Majesty King Mohammed VI of Morocco, President Christian highlighted recent successes initiated and co-sponsored by FSM and Morocco which included the phase-down of HFCs in the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol which would result in the reduction of 0.5 (half a percent) degree Celsius of global warming and the elimination of about 70 - 80 billion tons of greenhouse gas equivalent being emitted into the atmosphere.  Such successes must be celebrated but also followed by continued work to maintain and accelerate the momentum. more>>
