It’s almost ends of the era of fossil fuel. Humankind is being endangered for global climate changes and environmental pollution.
The Paris Agreement has been contracted in December last year. It’s the establishing of the Paris Agreement and announcement from all the countries in entire world to reduce use of fossil fuels and increase use of new renewable energy.
Chungnam-do has presented ‘Happy Environment’ as their main slogan and pushes ahead on various policies with a civil society. They offer to get rid of politic, economy, society, cultural structure and the cognitive framework that had built by fossil fuels in 20th century, and to have a vision for the world after the industrial era.
For such a reason, Chungnam-do made strategies as a ‘comprehensive plan for climate change response’, and a ‘comprehensive plan for environmental protection’. They focus on set up the local level of systemic response and to develop and start a citizen-centered environmental policy.
Chungnam-do is conducting a ‘One Person Reducing 1t of Green-house gas’ campaign. It is their effort to reduce using of green-house gas in the Paris Agreement. Especially, they decided to expand one of their environmental policies, the Carbon Point Policy, to citizens who economized using of electricity and water in their living places. By this policy change, people who reduce their using of electricity and water over 8% from this July to June in next year will about $500 ? $7,000 as an incentive. People can join the Carbon Point Policy in the website(www.cpoint.or.kr) or each eup, myeon, dong office(community service center).
Chungnam-do is also conducting a village-based policy. They made a rest area for heatwave in Dongmoon-ri, Taean-eup, and built an alternative energy generating unit to ‘Ildae Village’ in Asan and ‘Shindu 3-ri Village’. At the same time, they educated one hundred-five consultants to have a consulting about green-house gas in stores, houses and schools.
And they are building up the cooperation system between business companies and farmhouses to spread the new renewable energy. Business companies support farmhouses cost to install a new renewable energy facility and farmhouses provide their result of reducing of green-house gas.
By the agreement between companies and farmhouses, Seobu Baljeon(Korea Western Power Co.,ltd, Taean, Chungnam.) invest $10million($2million annually) to support engineer protected cultivation and stockbreeding farmhouses to install the new renewable energy and the energy reduction facility for five years. The expected reduction of green-house gas will be 1,615CO2 ton per year.
The head of environmental policy of Chungnam-do Ko Il Hwan said, “we all have to think about how to reduce environmental changes all over the world to protect this planet Earth from environmental pollution and destruction of ecosystems, and have to think about how to get used to climate changes like drought, heavy show and heatwave.” And, “first of all, if we use less electricity, we can reduce fine dust and don’t have to build more heat power plants.” He also said, “Chungnam-do will protect environment by hearing people’s opinions in environmental innovation academy and environmental education conference.”
