Humans do things that create carbon dioxide which is one of the greenhouse gases that cause the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is when gases like carbon dioxide become trapped in the atmosphere and trap incoming solar energy. That solar energy is then redirected in all directions thus, warming the entire planet and causing what we know as global warming. Global warming is a heating up all parts of the planet causing global climate changes. “A major international assessment of climate change…provides conclusive new scientific evidence that human activities are causing unprecedented changes in the Earth’s climate.” (IPCC Confirms, 2013).
Besides that, Thailand do have the factors of production such as capital, labor and resources. As long as the leaders can manage all these priceless resources well, the unstable political system will not affect the economic growth of the nation. Thailand still can focus on the industrialized sectors besides than agriculture sectors. The tourism sectors also is one of the income of the nation. Being an exporter of rice and tourism hot spot, Thailand still can generate a big income and boost it economic growth without considering the stability of the political system.
Compared to many other countries within the Southeast Asian region, Thailand has had a long history of both human trafficking and anti-trafficking intervention. As a result, the causes of human trafficking throughout Thailand are more openly acknowledged and better understood than elsewhere in the region. However, a stark divide between the understanding of the sex trafficking and labor trafficking industry still exists. The Thai government has been reluctant to act in contesting labor trafficking when compared to the contentious actions that it has taken to curtail sex trafficking. The primary causes of human trafficking present within the country are the sex tourism industry and rapid economic growth.
As people are living longer, so the burden on the family and state increases, coupled with declining birth rates, it is difficult to see how long the current provisions will hold out, until it collapses. This is coupled with less transparency in business, from a grass roots level to an industrial scale, in layman’s terms, corruption, greed, and mismanagement, all strong indications that the economy is straying from middle path, as more people strive to become obscenely wealthy, at the detriment of others. Indeed as Sachayansrisakul states in his article, “Sufficiency Economy: A Reasonable Approach for Thailand’s Future”, “Thailand is at a declining stage. According to Transparency International (2007), Thailand ranked 84th, at the bottom of the upper half of the list. However, its transparency is assumed to be slowly declining in Thailand, as can be observed by the declining transparency index, from 3.8 in 2005 to 3.6 in 2006 and 3.3 in 2007.
“The theory of human activity (fossil fuel burning) being a direct cause of global warming is based on the assumption that atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is directly related to global warming. Is this assumption valid?” Global warming is brought about by the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect Gasses in the troposphere cause the greenhouse effect. There is a correlation between the temperature of the earth and the concentration of carbon dioxide in the troposphere, however, correlation does not infer causality. The earth receives energy from the sun in numerous wavelengths.
These gases are believed to be the main cause of climate change. The three most well known greenhouse gases are CO2, CH4 and N2O. The concentrations of these gases in the atmosphere have increased drastically since the pre-industrial times. It is well documented that the increase in concentrations of these gases is caused by anthropogenic activities that includes the use of fossil fuels as well as agriculture. Apart from the atmosphere, the hydrosphere is also affected by this abnormal change in the concentrations of the mentioned gases.
If we do not take immediate action against this issue, the world we live in will be open to an unwanted amount of change. These changes may include the earth’s temperature becoming hotter with the addition of small islands being swallowed by the ocean. This is due to the ice caps melting which in turn is causing the sea level to rise. There will also be a rise in the amount of storms, droughts and heat waves occurring all over the world. Another factor of change that will take place will be the extinction of climate sensitive animals.
In 2012, the ratio was 18.8% higher than the previous year, whereas in 1990 it was only 11% (NESDB, 2013). This increase in energy consumption is also expected to result in greater environmental impacts on the environment. In Thailand, fossil fuel energy resources are limited and their use is associated with a number of negative environmental impacts. However, energy has become an important socio-economic issue that puts pressure on all countries in the world to improve energy efficiency and develop renewable energy
Oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are melting and the sea levels are rising. Why is this happening? There are several causes of climate change, such as biotic processes, variation in solar radiation received by earth, plate tectonics and volcano
Many believe that humans have increased the concentration of energy-trapping greenhouse gases in the lower atmosphere, therefore impacting the Earth’s natural greenhouse effect (McMichael, 2003). Maqbool (2013) supports that greenhouse gases emitted from land-use change and burning of fossil fuels add to the climate change, but admits that they do not solely cause it. He argued that water vapour is the primary greenhouse gas and the high solar activities of the sun itself would result in elevated temperatures on Earth (Maqbool, 2013). Research by the US Global Climate Research Programme (Alaska Regional Assistant Group) highlights that global climate change has the potential to affect tropic levels and human health by means of food chains (McMichael, 2003). Maqbool (2013) debated that melting of glaciers is not a consequence of global warming, but occurs as a result of drifting of tectonic plates.
