The Rising Tide North America has faulted the United Nation’s counter climate change document reached early Sunday, terming it a bad deal, which is narrowly focused on enforceable commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

A communication release circulated by the network on 14th December 2014 hours after the deal was reached in Lima, Peru says the anticipated greenhouse gas emissions reduction will have to wait till after 2020 and will not keep temperature rises below two degrees Celsius.

Rising Tide America also accuse rich countries and their corporate lobbyists for crafting a deal that is not keen on halting the expansion of extractive industries blamed for contributing to global warming.

They claim the Lima agreement on how countries should tackle climate change falls short of outlining a strategy on helping poor nations adapt to climate change and sustainably lift their people out of poverty.

Rising Tide America is advocating for a climate crisis solution which is based on communities protecting their land, water and forests from the industries destroying the planet.

The Rising Tide North America is an international, all-volunteer, grassroots network of groups and individuals who organize locally to promote community-based solutions to the climate crisis and take to action to confront the root causes of climate change. 

The climate deal is set to be ratified in December 2015
