PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/14 -- Non-governmental organisations, Major Groups, and Member States at the United Nations and the European Union have raised attention on climate change, ecosystems, and sustainable energy over the past months while delegations and talks for post-2105 plans continue. U.S. President Barrack Obama spoke this past week about climate change and other world leaders are making awareness and concern to the same focal matters of the environment and global warming.
Carbon-emissions and greenhouse gases remain the target in the war on carbon but this has not ceased the sceptics from the general public to make argument, complaint, and opinion to whether or not the topics of climate change and global warming are relevant or important to their daily lives and modern society.
A recent statement on behalf of SIDS civil society partners at the United Nations (UNSD) from a main NGO representative for the Caribbean stated that there are plans for new solutions for sustainable energy that have been recently tested and approved for use in Jamaica, Haiti, and United States. The delegate's statement at the U.N. commented on his hopes to see other island nations use the same technical solutions and methodologies to develop a more efficient strategy to consume fossil fuels in island nations like Guam and Mauritius, where the cost of energy is significantly higher than on the mainland.
Leaders of civil societies and diplomatic missions have joined the U.N. system for voluntary partnerships and missions to support Millennium Development Goals, Sustainable Development Goals, and the Rio+20 Outcome document, aside from supporting typical thematic causes as human trafficking, gender equality, global peace, and human rights. A representative of a non-governmental organisation in Micronesia tells the Press that 'they are taking a broader stance on awareness of climate change because it is affecting the indigenous people and agriculture of the island'.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
