This burning of fossil fuels produces Sulfur Dioxide and other harmful gasses that can severely contribute to our predicament Global Warming. If we use an alternative solution for the fossil fuels, we would probably end up having to face many political and economic issues. Even though we have much alternative energy, like solar panels and wind turbines, fossil fuels are the primary lead in the economy. As in, these alternative energies are not efficient and sufficient enough like fossil fuels, to give the manufacturers a solid
2. Brief analysis/warrant (How/Why this is important?)This shows how if we continue to pollute our atmosphere by emitting greenhouse gases such as carbon into our atmosphere, it will cause more natural disasters which will be more severe due to the rising temperatures which will allow for more severe storms, which is all a result from emissions. II. Conclusion A. Restate Thesis to remind the audience of your position: It can be said from the previous examples that global warming and climate change are both caused by human emission of greenhouse gases which result in consequences such as warmer temperatures and severe natural disasters.
“The main sources of CO2 emissions are industrial production, transportation and, more indirectly, deforestation. These three human activities exist independently of globalisation, but their considerable development during the 20th century, and in particular in recent decades, is partly linked to accelerated globalisation” (Oecd, 2013). There is no doubt that the excess of manufacturing and production has affected the way nature seems today, but the amplification of factories across the globe hinders ecosystems to destruction. Globalization enhances the concept of possessing and utilizing CO2.
In effect, smog and soot produced by the burning coal had serious impacts on the environment as it resulted in the formation of acid rain that was first discovered in the 1850s. Therefore negatively impacting on plants, soil, fish and forests. Moreover, the invention of motor vehicles during the industrial revolution impacted on the environment negatively (Belden, 2001). As much as it made transport convenient, these motor vehicles emitted harmful gases and sulfur nitrogen compounds to the atmosphere which in turn have contributed to global warming. Furthermore, particle pollution which resulted from a mixture of ash, diesel exhaust, metals, chemicals and aerosols from automobile machines like cars caused air
the rich countries should be responsible for the costs associated with combatting climate change. There have been many debates on this subject matter in the past. Some people have the opinion that all countries should be responsible to pay for the costs associated with climate change, but developed countries have been recognised as principally responsible for the levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere so it should be their responsibility to fund the fight against climate change. (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, 2014). 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.
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.
Global warming can be defined as the heating up of the earth’s atmosphere due to greenhouse gases causing the “greenhouse effect” in which gasses like carbon dioxide, nitrious oxide, methan get trapped in the earth’s atmosphere and raises its temperature. Global warming cause a chain of subsequent events disastrous to human life and the environment such as natural calamities, reduction in water reserves, extinction of wildlife, rise in the seal levels and many more. Scientists say that there are two main activities that cause global warming which can be categorized into human activities and industrial activities. Even though human activities up to some level are responsible for global warming it Is the industrial activities that aggravates it.
Environmental injustices have effected _________intro ___________ thesis In order to successfully address environmental racism and improve environmental justice efforts, the underlying causes and hidden systems in place must be examined through the use of understanding the lasting effects of settler colonialism, multiple forms of expulsions, and new forms of capitalism utilizing finance. As the general populous becomes more aware of the effects humans are having directly on the earth and its environmental systems, many individuals and corporations are trending towards sustainable practices and increasing their knowledge on what behaviors impact the environment negatively. A subsection of this that is often overseen and forgotten is the groups
It may be possible that the laws and regulations are lenient in host nation as compared to home nation. Environmental regulations – Ethical issues arise when the environmental regulations of host country are stringent to home country. This may result into increased pollution levels thereby attracting the penalties. Corruption – Corruption is one of the major issues which still continues in the society. Many international businesses have gained economic advantage as they pay to the government officials.
Pollution caused by crude oil and its petrochemical based products disrupt and alter the ecosystem balance. Incomplete combustion of crude oil leads to the production of greenhouse gases which causes acid rain and also accelerates climate change which is already having negative effect on the environment. Crude oil pollution poses a huge risk to the ecosystem if not properly managed because it enters the food web through the plant which is later transferred from one food chain to the other food chain (Sathishkumar et al. 2008). The strong persistence nature of crude oil and its total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) derivatives in air, water and land has attracted much attention from government and environmental stakeholder because accumulation of this pollution in plants and animal tissues leads to toxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic effects which invariably leads to death (Abd-Elsalam et al. 2009; Liu et al. 2010; Das and Chandran,
Hetch Hetchy: To Dam or Not to Dam? As a result of the industrial movements in America, there was a new kind of movement: the environmentalist movement. Some citizens were concerned that the rapid growth of America’s market and urban areas would negatively affect the natural aspects of America.

Recent climate change has never been a topic without global controversy. With the enormous impact stirred up, from economic loss to environmental disturbance. The ballooning attention to the issue has also triggered fierce discussion of the effectiveness of individual effort in the remedy of the gradually deteriorating environment. In the light of over-exploit natural resources by developers, there are a lot of people accusing the big businesses as the culprit and the biggest liability bearer.
