  • Yes, small victories for climate change are worth celebrating.

    Yes, we should celebrate small victories in the fight against climate change. Every victory is a step in the right direction. Celebrating those victories brings to light the positive impact that activists, governments and individuals can have on the health of the environment. Small celebrations show that everything we do makes a difference. Highlighting our progress may inspire more people to join the fight.

  • We should celebrate every victory that we have no matter how great or small.

    Every victory that we have in our fight against climate change should be celebrated no matter how big or small. Not all victories are going to be monumental. Even the smaller victories will have a tremendous impact in the short and long term. They should be recognized because they show that we are heading in the right direction.

  • Yes, we should celebrate small victories in fighting climate change.

    We should bring any victory in the fight against climate change to the forefront. Any reversal or improvement we make should be used as an example to convince uneducated climate change deniers or countries who do not do their fair share in the fight to change their views. As an entire planet, we should do whatever we can to help.

  • No we haven't finessed the fight yet

    Celebrating small victories is not important, we haven't finished the fight to stop global climate change and until we do we will celebrate. It take a lot to stop a global problem and a little victors is a parcel of what the goal we must in order to solve it. We should spend it one useless and unnecessary action because the fight isn't over and until we finish the fight we will celebrate.

  • Macro vs Micro

    Climate change has to be a global initiative; "small victories" imply that on a micro level (communities), people can make a difference to help "fight" climate change. This is simply not true. Taking a look at the Montreal Protocol's history shows that only large scale efforts and global dialogue create change in polices that actually create a noticeable impact. Victories should celebratory when nations generate meaningful policy change, which is by no means a "small" victory.

  • No, it is not yet enough.

    And how much CO2 emissions is that? Well, nobody knows. The sensitivity of the climate to CO2 forcing is known -- some might say guessed -- only to within a very broad range. Further, the uncertainty of these estimates has not materially reduced in the last few decades.
    How are governments supposed to make policy with such a fuzzy target?So the only way is to aim to phase out all burning of fossil fuels as quickly as possible.
    For some sectors that will be sooner than others. Given the risks, it's rational to assume climate sensitivity is not at the lower end of the range.
