Globalization has affected various factors and areas in our society such as, the global scale of trade; the interconnection of the markets all around the globe, as well as the economic intensity of modern human activities has been historically extraordinary. Moreover, it (globalization) also fuelled global changes like global warming. These global changes influence patterns of human health and international health care, as well as public health activities. As McMichael (2013) explains, these changes also contribute to various syndromes and reflect the interconnected pressures, stresses, as well as tensions that are arising from a very large population of the world. In addition to that, the universal and the increasingly systematic environmental…show more content…
One of the effects of this issue is carbon dioxide emission from the shipping or the transportation of the goods to the all parts of the world (Leopold, 2007). Leopold (2007) also cited various globalization activities that are affecting the environment and promote global warming. He said that the expanded trade indeed has contributed to the massive economic growth rates in China as well as India. As the result, China’s appetite for fuel and power has grown exponentially. Leopold (2007) also added that for every week up to ten days, another coal-fired power plant comes online in the country of China which is large enough to serve a major city in the United States. In addition to that, Pollyannaish analysts also argue that this particular type of problem will pass when the global carbon cap as well as the trading schemes will be put to place, and price as the result, will be placed on carbon emissions. This will also lead to the rise of new technologies and efficiencies that would dramatically reduce the global warming gases. In addition to that, this method should have been thought through as part of trade liberalization, rather than leaving it to the indefinite…show more content…

Globalization also fuelled global warming due to many factors such as the transport of materials from one country to another through the use of fossil fuels. In addition to that, industries also increased the emission of greenhouse gases that are the main causes of global warming and climate change. Global warming in turn brought and continues to bring many tragedies like the rise of sea level, storms, climate change, surface heating etc. Those who are in the developing countries that do not have the resources to combat and adapt to these changes will be the ones who will be greatly affected. What must be done is to amplify the benefits that could be obtained from globalization and minimize its negative effects like global
