CDM and Carbon trading are the two mechanisms designed under this protocol are the opportunities for these countries to restructure their power sector to be sustainable and renewable based at the cost of developed nations. • There are two mechanism in Kyoto protocol Clean development mechanism: the CDM allows a country to implement projects that reduce or remove emission in developing countries and to earn certified emission credits. The CDM is ment to stimulate sustainable development and emission reductions in developing countries, while giving industrializing countries some economic flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction or limitations targets. Carbon trading: This approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentive for achieving reductions in the emission of pollutants. •
Government should be more strict to protect the environment in China. Government should be more alert for the air pollution, and be more attention for their people
Air Pollution in China Air pollution is an increasing concern throughout the world. With escalating populations comes the massive growth of air pollution, which is detrimental to a person’s health, especially on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Countless countries and cities have been plagued with toxic air and shockingly twelve of the twenty majorly polluted cities throughout the world are located in China (Zhend & Kahn, 2013, p. 732). China’s air pollution is constantly increasing and harming the Chinese population. One population that is increasingly affected by the contaminated air are the children in China.
Therefore, reducing ruminal methane production is not only improves the efficiency of nutrient utilization but also helps to protect the environment from warming. Manipulating the rumen microbial ecosystem to reduce methane emission by ruminants to improve their performance are important issues for animal nutritionists. There is a need to reduce methanogensis by promoting a shift in fermentation pattern towards appropriate metabolic production as well as most economic and long term effective without making an adverse effect on animal and consumers. Inhibition of ruminal CH4 production may improve the efficiency of ruminal fermentation as well as decreasing the atmospheric concentration of a greenhouse
This is because the consumption of fossil fuels generates the likelihood for global climate change, cross country pollution such as acid rain and ecosystem degradation due to mining activities and transportation of these fuels by TNC’s. From this inference, one might argue that economic globalization stimulates the need for globalization of the environmental system according to established international trade norms. These established norms imply that it is arguably commanding to have a worldwide network of information and management that can guarantee the sustainable use of resources (Beck, 1998: 279). From this argument, international relations scholars asserts that environmental distresses have not only stirred on to the wider sphere of the international policy arena, but they have become a dominant force among contemporary world actors including TNC’s. Thus, the promotion of environmental friendly foreign policies by states is seen as a free market environmentalism approach.
Over the last three decades, China has experienced extraordinary economic growth and development and has been successfully integrated into the global economy. Now ranking as the second largest economy in the world, China’s success has been greatly attributed to the gradual shift towards market systems. Though the overall economic system of China has been significantly revolutionized, the political regime has remained inherently authoritarian and the government essentially monitors the capitalistic practices that occur in many sectors within the country. Nevertheless, this powerful augmentation of the Chinese economic system and the fervent expansion of China’s role in the global economy and political stage has presented the United States with various challenges and risks that could potentially threaten the economic and political powers the United States retains on a global scale.
For economy, China should focus on the shift from secondary industry to tertiary industry and development of technology. Also, controlling the exchange rate and minimum wage is important as well. Besides, laws should be established to control factory waste and create a more environmental-friendly industry system. As for the individual consumption problem, psychology is required for the solution. People have the tendency to conform with the society, the environment.
It’s rather obvious that human causes are more vulnerable compared to natural causes. Natural causes are normally external to the climate system, such as changes in volcanic activity, solar output, and the Earth 's orbit around the Sun. On the other side, climate change that are caused by human activities, are such as the burning of fossil fuels and also the conversion of land for forestry and agriculture. Not only that, carbon dioxide is also one of the main cause of human-induced climate change. Ever since the Industrial Revolution, the production of carbon dioxide which is a greenhouse gas has been increasing tremendously.
China is facing one of the huge problems such an environmental pollution today and it is causing irreparable harm to the country. Air pollution is the one of the form of environmental pollution that has been struggling against by China for many years. Air pollution is caused by gases released by vehicles, factories, and even smokes from burning leaves and cigarettes. Particularly, coal is the main reason for the degradation of air quality. As Tan (2013) claims “China burned about half of the world’s coal in 2009 and China receives 70 % energy from coal”.
Focusing on reducing air pollutants in the Earth’s atmosphere, it creates an environmentally healthy place to live in and encourage people to work together for a common cause, thus making the world a better place. In order to solve such a problem, a strong understanding is needed. Air pollution is one of the various forms of pollution. It is the presence of foreign toxic substances or pollutants into the air.
Adaptation actions includes improving energy efficiency in multi-tenant residential buildings, schools and hospitals, as well as training workforce to use new low-carbon technology. To mitigate the influence of transportation, Ontario will support the Accelerated Construction of GO Reginal Express Rail. To further adapt to climate change, the use of lower-carbon fuel such as wind and solar, the use of electric vehicles, low-carbon trucks and buses, and cycling are encouraged and supported.
INTRO: Air pollution is a worldwide human health risk that affects people of all social classes. The most polluted cities can be found in developed countries such as the United States, China, and the UK. Although air pollution can be the result of natural phenomena such as volcanoes and storms, much of today’s issues stem from anthropogenic i.e. human, causes. Houston, Texas is one of the largest cities in the United States and, unfortunately, the quality of their atmosphere reflects the city’s expansive area, many shipping ports, chemical plants, and high traffic.
Arguably the most significant thing humans have done to cause climate change is the drastic increase in CO2. As a result of human activities, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and the halocarbons (a group of gases containing fluorine, chlorine, and bromine) build up in the atmosphere over time, as well as the natural sources of CO2, like vegetation. The concentration ofCO2 has went from 280 to more than 380 parts per million in just two hundred years. Still currently rising, the burning of fossil fuels by humans will continue to cause global warming and climate
Claire Woppmann 8th Grade Social Studies Satirical Letter Prince Shōtoku Taishi, Japan’s legendary regent from 593 to 622 CE – who was inspired by Buddha’s teachings, authored Japan’s seventeen-article constitution in 604 CE and established a centralized government during his reign – has sent a message from beyond the grave to American republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. We stumbled upon this letter while trying to contact some ancient spirits. Apparently, Prince Shōtoku decided that he met the qualifications for an “ancient spirit”. The bald spot on one of our coworkers may have confused him into thinking that he was delivering this to Donald Trump himself.
