Introduction Climate change has been a controversial topic related to the intergenerational justice and ethics as it is said that we are consuming too much at the expense of the future generations. The greenhouse gases are the result of the usage of the non-renewable energy sources. In such, there are several scholars pointed out the morality under the intergenerational justice theory, saying that the use of the non-renewable resources should be abolished. This essay attempts to investigate how much we should do for our next generations. It will firstly define the key term of intergenerational justice, then move on to a summary of two important readings of the issue.
Modern society is developing and changing according to the rules of globalization and overwhelming innovation. Now is the stage of human existence, when industrialization is creating huge risks for the whole world. In that context, environmentalism, as a part of modern social movement incorporates individual lifestyles with governmental control within a nation. It also has a major impact on global environmental issues of different levels of operation. The concept of “risk society” that was entered by Beck is related to the behavior occurring as a response to the modernization.
The Effect Of Globalization In Developing Professional Ethics The impact of globalization on human beings no doubt about it, but does it effect on Professional ethics?, This is a Controversial topic which may consider a various points of view. First thing we ought understand the concept of globalization, what is the definition of globalization and what is the relationship between globalization and professional ethics , also weather it have an effect on professional ethics or not. Globalization means “The worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration.” In other words Globalization means that the world is becoming one Country, which emerged with the modern age and was formed what caused by the science

We have lost the ability to agree that anything is inherently wrong; consequently societies are forced to become legalistic societies, as the law provides the bottom line on shared values. Most of the effects of individualism are visible or have been implied in the WALL-E movie. It is because of intense individualism, globalization and capitalism that the earth is covered in waste. This problem is largely as a result of BNL; the only corporation represented by a select few that make decisions for all concerned.
As our world is rapidly changing and life standards are getting higher, the entire mankind is now struggling to deal with a series of global issues. One of them is the global warming which is doing more harm to human life than imagined. As a matter of fact, climate change is so intensely concerning that governments from a wide range of countries have devoted to coping with it throughout many conventions and formulas. While some may argue that climate change is based on false and unreliable sources with an aim to turning our lives upside down.

One form of protectionist policies that would occur would be to impose increasing red tape on the movement of labor by requiring firms to fill out time-consuming forms to discourage firms from offshoring production under NAFTA. Additionally, the rates of tariffs on imports from practically 0% to an average 4.2% and 7.1% with Canada and Mexico respectively under World Trade Organization legislation. To competently assess protectionism as a whole it is important to review the projected positives of the U.S leaving NAFTA. The most significant of which is of protecting U.S manufacturing industry. According to NAFTA guidelines, labor movement has too many incentives for job offshoring (Graceffo).
Looking back at past happenings, we can understand that the U.S. is not doing so well and needs improvement juristically. People have to recognize that if we are going to repeat history, we need to take a step in the positive direction to put the circumstances to an end. The deficiencies in where and how the rich are being taxed need to be looked upon, to get these large corporations out of the political process. Income inequality in America today should be regulated to a below minimum rate, it is a terrible situation which is hurting society significantly and, if not treated correctly, can harm this country severely.

This article fails to notice that fundamental social and global forces that have produced new controversies are coming about due to cultural clashes between groups. Furthermore, these cultural clashes are starting due to a lack of tools necessary to resolving the conflicts. Edward N. Luttwak’s article, Give War a Chance suggests that perhaps conflict is unavoidable and if so maybe the solution to the burning flame of conflict is to allow it to extinguish itself.

War brings peace only after passing a culminating phase of violence”.
