Climate change has been raised as a problem both on the domestic and international levels in the United States, and Green Theory can be used to help explain this growth in awareness. This has led to programs such as the Environmental Protection Agency sponsored Clean Air Act, which determined that carbon-dioxide and greenhouse gases were harming the general public. Policies such as the Clean Air Act although it mainly focuses on the wellbeing for humans would still fall under the concept of Green Theory for it is considered a governmental approach to the environment or the non-human resources and falls under the pillar of taking
BP launched its Alternative Energy Business in 2005 with the emphasis that ‘going green’ is of increasing importance to its firm and industry, while aiming to expand it further when it becomes more profitable to do so. In addition, BP also made efforts to implement environmental awareness programs in its home country, Britain . These actions by BP exhibit its intention and concern to minimize adverse impact on environment while it exists in the operations of power generation. Moreover, the initiative to engage in the public on environmental
Although developed countries are largely responsible, climate change can have disastrous consequences for any country so it should be a global problem as it is going to need global participation to solve. I will argue that many countries are setting agendas to prevent climate change so with these initiatives, countries should not be worried about the costs associated with the consequences of climate change as with these initiatives, the problem of climate change could be reduced drastically leaving the costs associated with combatting it
If we just have limited resources, we can not have a good life. We can't eat or grow up. How can we control the climate change. Through the process of this paper of researching this paper, I learned a lot, First, I learned a lot about climate change. Global warming has a lot to do with the environment, melting glaciers and raising sea levels.
Therefore, we need to think about tomorrow with respect to every action that we take in the environment and in this case we can say that sustainable development requires slower population growth. With this in mind, we need to be educated through our cultures about the impact we caused to the environment as we continue to reproduce. The challenge of environmental ethics has led to the attempt to apply traditional ethical theories, including consequentialism, deontology, and virtue ethics, to support contemporary environmental concerns; the preservation of biodiversity as an ethical goal; the broader concerns of some thinkers with wilderness, the built environment and the politics of poverty; the ethics of sustainability and climate change, and some directions for possible future developments of the discipline [ CITATION And15 \l 1033 ]. With this multi-dimensional approach one can see that it is more of a cultural issue to think of it from its origin. We have grown to see our parents have children, build houses, buy cars cultivate farmlands, explore timber and many other aspects.
Overall global warming will impact life on earth in many ways but the extent of the change is largely dependent on human activities as scientist have shown that human emissions of greenhouse gases are pushing global temperatures up. It can therefore be concluded that climate change is the long-term averages and variations in the weather over a long period of time were as anthropogenic climate change relates to the effects human activities have on the greenhouse gases and as the greenhouse gases are long-lived, therefore the planet will continue to warm and changes will happen in the future, but the degree to which global warming changes is up to the human activities affecting climate
These various environmental movements have become known as environmentalism” (Truell, Allen “Green Marketing”). There have been different movements in history that had led up to how people react and what they know today. Will not go into them but environmentalism is important to understand. The Merriam-Webster’s definition of environmentalism is “a theory that views environment rather than heredity as the important factor in the development and especially the cultural and intellectual development of an individual or group”(DIC). These groups that the definition mentions are important because they are the consumer, and are getting bigger according to many of the sources in this paper.
It also creates destructive economic and social environments for poor and marginalized people as mentioned by the IFSW (2012a). Social work as a profession tends to meet those people who are suffering the damaging effects of aspects of globalisation IFSW (2012b). The IFSW international Ethical Documents (1) for social work does also include the term „globalisation”. This document says:” Social workers recognise the benefits and disadvantages of globalisation for the most vulnerable people in the world. Our professional perspective focuses especially on how the economic and environmental consequences affect social relationships and individual opportunity” (IFSW, 2012b).
Green growth and green economy have been subject to various definitions but those currently being used by international organizations have a lot in common. Greening growth (GG) and moving towards a greener economy (GE) is complex and multidimensional. Green growth is a matter of both economic policy and sustainable development policy. It tackles two key imperatives together: the continued inclusive economic growth needed by developing countries to reduce poverty and improve wellbeing; and improved environmental management needed to tackle resource scarcities and climate change. The concept of green economy rests on the economy, the environment and the social pillars of sustainable development.
