Topic: Green Energy
Ever since the industrial revolution shook the world in the early 1800s, society has relied on a massive supply of energy, the demand for which has been growing at a concerning rate. Coal, petroleum, and natural gas are the three main fossil fuels (sources that will eventually run out) that make up almost 80% of the world’s energy supplies, and are causing tremendous damage to our environment and climate. With greenhouse gases at an all time high, climate change could be irreversible by 2030 if action is not taken immediately. Green energy is becoming more and more prominent in the field of energy as a cleaner, renewable, and more cost-effective option in the long run. As such, the chairs would look favorably upon discussions concerning the implementation of green energy, the necessity of fossil fuels, and the possible consequences that would arise from changing a system that has stood in stone for so long. Delegates will assess responsibilities of different nations as well as suggest measures to regulate the usage of fossil fuels as aligned with his/her/their country’s stance.
