World wildlife stated that Humans and animals face new challenges for survival because of climate change. More frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans can directly harm animals, destroy the places they live, and wreak havoc on people’s livelihoods and communities. (Source 5) . Meaning that the longer we let it climate change affect our planet the higher the chance of the increase in tides, hotter heat storms, and drought.In the next several decades, storm surges and high tides could combine with sea level rise and land subsidence to further increase flooding in many regions. According to Nasa, Sea levels continue to rise after 2100 because the oceans take a very long time to respond to warmer conditions at the Earth’s surface.
Countries are waking up to this emergent call to preserve that which is left of the environment for a sustainable future for mankind. The effects of climate change are multi-fold. From rising sea levels, to depleting drinking water sources, to melting ice caps, hurricanes and floods, to droughts and heat waves because of ever-increasing global temperatures, natural changes would soon be gravely unpredictable and threatening to our species. According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the extent of climate change effects on individual regions will vary over time, and with the ability of different societal and environmental systems to mitigate
Companies have tried alternate methods to minimize air pollution, oil spills, etc. However, there is a very harmful system known as fracking. These companies are not noticing that this technique does the complete opposite. There is a big fear that changing to cheap fracked natural gas to replace coal could backfire and could worsen the situation even further. Environmental groups are afraid that if hydraulic fracturing were to happen, they believe that contaminating underground water supplies could affect global warming 20 times more (Davenport 1).
INTRODUCTION 1. Climate change is one of the vital environmental challenges that humanity is facing, with implications on natural ecosystems, food production, fresh water, health, etc. The harmful impacts of Climate change are already manifesting themselves round the world witha variety of extreme weather events like storms, droughts, floods and cyclones that are mounting in frequency and intensity. In line with the newest scientific assessment, the earth’s Climate system has incontrovertibly modified on each international and regional scales since the pre-industrial era. The Inter-Governmental Panel on Climatechange (IPCC) states that the world mean Climate could increase between 1.4 to 5.80C before the current century ends.
The most vulnerable groups are the poor people in developing countries. They are deprived of their entitlements and necessities of life, and therefore, heavily depend on natural capital for sustenance (Scoones 1998, IPCC 2001, Adger 2003). They try to devise a means of survival that would achieved through the willingness to diversify into different areas but with the emergence of climate change, they are easily destroyed by climate-induced extreme events. As Nepal is a developing country, it has to face climate change and its effect. This report tries to show the adaptive challenge of climate change in Nepal.
For example, the demand for cold weather products like heating oil might drop if the global temperature increases. Not only that, it is also difficult to recruit and retain the staff if the business itself is not sustainable due to the environmental issues. In addition, climate change might cause global impacts. This is because if the climate change events happened in a certain country, the suppliers may not be able to deliver goods or services and the international customers may be persuaded to buy locally. This will cause more challenges for international
Climate change is not only about science but also about politics and ethics We live in the era when climate change has become a vital issue, a literally vital issue. A lot of creatures and living substances are dying because of the climate change, the landscapes change, burying under water whole islands. This is just a little part of what climate change does to the world we live in. On the first glance it seems obvious that everybody should be worried about the climate change, also because it affects our lives and our health and even because there is nowhere to run away from the planet. But this is not always the case, not everybody cares about it.
As that happening in Niger Delta region, it is shown that poor policy discourse creates even more environmental challenges to the region and intensifies their women’s vulnerability to climate change and environmental insecurity. Not only poor policy discourse, poverty also the reason overconsumption exists. It is certainly not possible to achieve environmental sustainability while poverty and inequities left unsolved. Gender Plan of Action can be expanded and changed to be more focussed on the issues of feminist environmentalism. Comprehensive strategies are also needed for climate change mitigation.
The global environment problems that we have at present have changed that way we live. The global warming and other environmental problems that the Earth is experiencing today is very alarming. The issue that needs to be critically looked at is not just about the temperature of the Earth becoming warmer each year. It’s about the effects of such phenomenon to our daily lives. Typhoons are now much more strong and enhanced and have become more fatal.
As it is growing at 2.11 percent every year, which, ultimately puts pressure on the natural resources of a nation. As the population increases the demand for resources also increases. So at present population is a big challenge before us. It is expected that the country’s population will increase to about 1.26 billion by the year 2016 which will put the pressure on our natural resources and the problems like Water shortages, soil exhaustion and erosion, deforestation, air and water pollution will become common. The uprising population and economic development are contributing many environmental calamities these include land degradation, deforestation, water scarcity, global warming and climate
