There are over 700 verses in the Qur'an which talks about the environment and climate #Muslims4Climate
"On September 23, 2014 Leonardo DiCaprio addressed one of the largest gatherings of government, business and civil society leaders in history, at the United Nations Climate Summit. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed Leonardo to serve as a United Nations Messenger of Peace for Climate, calling the actor a “new voice for climate advocacy.” "
"At the Our Oceans conference, spearheaded by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Leonardo pledged $7M in funding to help support a monumental effort that will protect more than 772,000 square miles of ocean territory. Other contributions announced at the conference from the U.S. and the international community totaled nearly $2 billion."
"In conjunction with the conference, U.S. President Barack Obama signed amemorandum aimed at curbing “illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing and seafood fraud.”"
"The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit. Our goal is a prosperous, low carbon future. We believe this will be achieved through a ‘clean revolution’: the rapid scale-up of low carbon energy and technology.
We work with corporate and government partners to develop climate finance mechanisms, business models which promote innovation, and supportive policy frameworks. We convene leaders, share hard evidence of successful low carbon growth, and pilot practical solutions which can be replicated worldwide.
“The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is at the heart of this shift – the same as it was at the heart of the last energy boom. And just as its massive oil reserves provided a springboard for the incumbent energy revolution, its huge solar resources and cutting-edge technology development are shaping the region as a hub for the new, clean energy revolution.”
The Analysis is part of the “a renewable 100% initiative” termed “RE100”. http://www.theclimategroup.org/what-we-do/programs/re100/
