Securitization of the environment, or anything for that matter, changes the instruments and the people who use these instruments available to deal with the new security threat. These personnel usually take the form of the long entrusted state security actor; the military. Environmentalists have long protested the linkage of the environment and security, arguing environmental security directly refers to the military’s capacity to apply themselves to the ocean of environmental issues. The purpose of most militaries is to fight wars and in doing so they incur devastating consequences for people and the environment. Contrast this with the environmental movement efforts to achieve sustainable life and peace.
In general, desertification is a major problem of the world that we should be aware. This world phenomenon is affecting terribly to 168 countries worldwide and making millions people suffered bad living conditions. It’s possible for us to get rid of desertification but it need to take a long time to solve the problem.
A dangerous atmospheric deviation is one of the greatest environmental challenges that face human today. One of them is the global warming. Harmful gases are the main causes for this problem as they pollute the atmosphere, subsequently cause global warming. Also, the increase in the usage of chemical fertilizers in agriculture is very dangerous that it helps in causing this problem too. Accordingly, human health will be badly affected, and people migrated from their countries.
The floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts are all result of global warming. Human beings are the largest contributors of global warming and exploitation of our own environment. As a result we are suffering due to natural disasters. Hence, it is appropriate to judge our actions and work
Perhaps less obvious but no less ominous a threat to the environment are the general increase in temperatures worldwide and the resulting climate changes. This phenomenon, known as global warming, could have serious negative effects on humans and all other living things on Earth. Global warming is a complex problem, and governments have had great difficulty deciding how to address it. Some people think that it is the work of the world where nothing we do can ether change it or anything we do will prevent it. While others say that the
Inequality is a much-discussed phenomenon in most international forums today. Capital growth around the world has led to the generation of arbitrary and unsustainable inequalities , leading to the dominance of the Global North over the South. The review highlighted an important relation between inequality and climate change. It stated that the poorest countries and societies, the ones with the least available resources
Pope Francis S.J. argues that climate change has become a global issue with a plethora of negative effects on our way of life. Although the environmental implications of climate change are extremely well known, many are completely oblivious to its harsh economic effects. As climate change continues to intensify these effects will not only cause mass hysteria around the world but will also cause major complications for the common home. As climate change worsens, its effects on the economy will begin to take shape. The enormous and more frequent storms which are a result of climate change will continue to damage infrastructure and people’s homes, drought and a hotter environment will damage crop and food production, and the increased rate of
As a worldwide problem, pollution has caused great damage on human health and world environment. And in most cases, this effect is irreversible. Therefore, the intervention of government and use of instrument to tackle the environmental issue is necessary. Pollution can be divided into different types,
As these problems become more and more persistent, the boundaries of states become increasingly distorted. This implies that, the wasteful use of coal or the inability to treat communicable disease in one state not only devastates that states’ environment and population, but it also has direct and often dramatic consequences for the other states also for instance the spread of avian influenza (H5N1) throughout Asia since 2003, across to Europe and the Middle East, as well as Africa. More so, as the rapid growth in the number of international environmental agreements since the 1970’s indicates, the resolution of these kinds of problems requires extensive cooperation and coordination among states in the formulation and implementation of policies. The United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) has a record that lists close to 200 multilateral environmental agreements and amendments to existing agreements, most of which have been established since the Stockholm Conference which was the first universal recognition of environmental awareness in 1972 ( Susskind, 2002; MacNeill, 1990; and Gallagher,1968). Accordingly, scholars argue that it emanates as no surprise that the path of international climate diplomacy has always been a shaky one and this is especially true since the
The process stimulated a worldwide industrialization competition that drew its power from the exchange and consumption of resources, the consequences of which are reminiscent of Easter Island’s collapse. Furthermore, globalized trade provided opportunities for the plague and influenza to infect an incredible number of people. Such consequences of globalization have destabilized society and established a culture of paranoia, which technological advances have failed to overcome. So although globalization is praised for having created a closer and more interdependent global community, it is this very connection that brought about environmental and physical suffering throughout
