  1. I do concur with Christian A. Lopez as he expressed his view, “Negotiations of this magnitude will increase our chances to save the planet.” However, I will not stop at this juncture. Why? Some of the decisions made at this forum are sometimes influenced by countries with magnanimous financial wealth and power. This approach, though accepted, can be much more effective if all the countries involved can demonstrate good will to each other and allow the complex process of political integration to take form/precedence. Climate Change must be a top priority for every human being.
