Many factors are affecting this problem, especially humans create these elements. Sulfur dioxide is one of the issues that we have now; I repeat one of the issues. The production of the compound results in global warming and health related problems. The solution to this problem may lead to affecting industrial purposes and manufacturers. Sulfur
Energy consumption is an essential element in development and while the increase in energy use has many benefits, we are becoming also aware of the negative impacts of energy use. These negative impacts are both global and local in the form of climate change or environmental degradation ( for example poor air quality, desertification, resource depletion, and noise pollution) etc. As a matter of urgency, we need to cultivate an alternative and efficient use of energy at all stages of supply and demand chain in order to reduce the negative impacts of energy consumption and at the same time accommodate same and flourishing economic development. Generally, the 21st century has been so far overshadowed by changes in the way we understand and use energy compared to the
The idea of risk has profound social consequences. Another linkage established by Beck is globalization of these risks. Many risks like pollution, climate change and nuclear weapons have global dimensions. New communities of risk can be created across national borders which can have substantial socio-economic and political implications. Risk society is a global phenomenon therefore requires global solutions.
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.
Although the aim of globalization is to have an open market, to open many job opportunities to many people, it also has its own setbacks. 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.
It acts as a foundation before introducing the other new policies and actions to deal with climate change by providing the aims, principles and strategies of China. The main objective of CNCCP is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in China and to do it by focusing on crucial areas such as energy creation and conversion, energy proficiency development and energy management, farming and forestry, manufacturing processes and wastes produced by the community as these are the areas which produce greenhouse gases. It also aims to promote the science and technology as well as research and development on climate change in China to a higher and more advanced level because by building up the roles of science and technology brings an advantage in controlling climate change in both regional and national level. Besides that, CNCCP also aims to raise consciousness and understanding in public so that the citizens of China would be alert about the consequences of climate change and do their own part to help control the emission of greenhouse gases. Furthermore, this program wishes to reinforce the organizations and instruments used on climate
I also would recommend that they that they consider the aspect of global warming. This might hinder their future business. I would recommend that they get involved and market more toward a green environment. This can be done by funding local organizations and movements. I do believe as our climate continue changing this has and will continue to affect local
The focus of globalization on the economic benefits needs to be translated into health benefits. It also required that the resources generated by globalization process should be more favourable to developing countries and used to strengthen health systems, to ensure universal access to cost-effective interventions, and to improve other services essential to health, such as education, water and sanitation, environmental protection and effective nutrition and health safety programmes (Woodward et al, 2001). Countries should protect health-related spending from reducing in public expenditure, limiting the adverse effects of low or negative growth on the incomes of the poor, this will equally minimize the adverse effect on the health. It is important to monitor the effects of globalization and health, and to ensure that the results of such monitoring are fed effectively into decision-making processes at the national and international
Because of this “grandfathering” has turned out to be the more prevalent method of assigning emission allowances (Woerdman et al., 2008). The downside to “grandfathering” is that firms may now have an incentive to pollute in order to acquire more allowances (Woerdman et al., 2008). ). In some countries, the polluter-pays principle is applied by national governments through direct regulation that generates economic incentives, making the polluter to accept the cost of the environmental harm caused by its activity through regulation that enforces direct environmental liability on the polluting agents (Luppi et al., 2012). In developing countries cases of environmental pollution and degradation, a different variation of the polluter pays principle appeared focusing mainly on the primary need to provide immediate reparation to victims of environmental harm (Luppi et al., 2012).
It also starts by getting out voices heard and getting a cap on the number of emissions we can release so that we can protect our atmosphere. Such a shift in norms and introducing regulations would surely accelerate the transition to a carbon-free
