Fresh funding to assist Climate Change studies and development

The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre has launched a four year multi-million dollar regional energy efficiency project. The U.S. twelve point four million dollars Energy for Sustainable Development in Caribbean Buildings Project, which is jointly funded by a grant from the Global Environment Facility, the CCCCC and five CARICOM countries, seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by twenty percent in the near term and make the region’s energy sectors more efficient through increased use of renewable energy.  Approximately thirty key stakeholders involved in the project, including representatives from the five participating countries (Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Saint Lucia and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago) were in attendance for the launch event in Belize City. The Belize National Steering Committee (NSC) will have overall responsibility for the management, coordination and implementation of the project activities.

    I guess if someone gives you money you are going to take it, but just realize that man made climate change is a joke. The climate was changing long before man came on the scene. The climate has been much more hot and much more cold just in the last 2000 years. We are actually coming out of a little ice age.
