Therefore large amounts of carbon dioxide are left in the air, and there is less oxygen. Global warming is greatly affected by deforestation due to the increase in green house gases it causes. Millions of trees are being cut down each day. When these trees have fallen or have been burned carbon dioxide enters the air. Because of the recent facts you’ve heard deforestation is the second major problem that causes global warming.
The deforested trees release greenhouse gases that were stored, into the atmosphere which takes part in polluting the air. In Lauren Bennett’s article, “Deforestation and Climate Change,” she states, “As burning trees occurs, it can release hundreds of years worth of stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.” Her idea shows the disadvantage of causing harm to trees. Furthermore, she explains that the carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere accounts for about 25% of greenhouse gas production (Bennett). The release of carbon dioxide is one-fourth of the cause that damages the atmosphere by increasing the effects of climate change. Trees hold the carbon dioxide in, so once they are damaged, they will release the carbon dioxide.
Economic nationalism or mercantilism is the realist approach to international political economy. This theory considers the state to be the most significant actor in the international system, views international economic relations between states as competitive in nature and claims there is a direct relationship between the pursuit of political power and economic wealth. It is the relative economic power of the state, in comparison with other states, that is most important. This perspective criticizes liberal ideas of free trade, claiming that they were not applicable to the reality of a world of nation states. Rather than being in the interest of all individuals, in reality a free trade system would favour the most advanced manufacturing states.
There are some pros to globalization as Mike Collins states that, "supporters of globalization argue that it has the potential to make this world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated problems like unemployment and poverty." (Collins, 2015) But then continues with some points that seem more valid to me, "The general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer"(Collins, 2015) and "Globalization is deindustrializing America as we continue to outsource both manufacturing blue collar and white collar jobs. "(Collins, 2015) Because we are in a whirlwind of globalization we loosing jobs ourselves. In the perspective of third world's countries, it is shown to give many opportunities for employment, but what large corporations won't tell you is that they are exploiting the smaller less industrialized and causing havoc and damage to them. For instance, China's pollution rate is
As a matter of fact, this method could help the Homo sapiens survive for an extremely long time. Global warming is created by people, too. Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide, (CO2) in the atmosphere. (Scientists) Deforestation is one of the many ways that cause global warming. Deforestation means cutting down trees in the forests and on land.
Proponents of this practice insist that deregulation amounts to corporate welfare and results in many industries exploiting their workers, the consumers, and the environment to maximize profit. These individuals analyze the effects of regulation, and “This, in turn, helps advance a ‘constitutive interpretation’ of the role of regulation—a perspective that focuses on the role of regulation in the continuing expansion, adaptation and transformation of capitalism.” (Levi-Faur). The theory of regulated capitalism can further be divided into two categories: economic regulation and social regulation. Economic regulation controls prices. It is designed to protect consumers and small businesses, and “... it often is justified on the grounds that fully competitive market conditions do not exist and therefore cannot provide such protections themselves.” (U.S. Department of State).
This is because the consumption of fossil fuels generates the likelihood for global climate change, cross country pollution such as acid rain and ecosystem degradation due to mining activities and transportation of these fuels by TNC’s. From this inference, one might argue that economic globalization stimulates the need for globalization of the environmental system according to established international trade norms. These established norms imply that it is arguably commanding to have a worldwide network of information and management that can guarantee the sustainable use of resources (Beck, 1998: 279). From this argument, international relations scholars asserts that environmental distresses have not only stirred on to the wider sphere of the international policy arena, but they have become a dominant force among contemporary world actors including TNC’s. Thus, the promotion of environmental friendly foreign policies by states is seen as a free market environmentalism approach.
This kinds of social costs embraced as the result of the irresistible demand for economic growth, by sometimes sacrificing both the workers and the environment. The economic theorist called it as the concept of negative externalities (Barca, 2012), which entrepreneurs change the real cost of human and environmental health and safety into the third parties. Kapp ideas on the social cost and the natural behavior of entrepreneur enhanced as the fundamental of the upcoming theory, named as Ecological Economics. It is considered as the radical non-orthodox discipline because of it declining the idea which unlimited economic growth were the only possible answer for poverty (Barca, 2012). However, Salleh (Salleh, 2010) stated that the cost of production for industrial and Meta-industrial workers along with the public health is not highly as the main concern of ecological economist.
Economic life has been transformed dramatically by the advances in information technology. However, globalization is controversial. The proponents of globalization claim that it gives an opportunity to the poor countries to grow and develop economically. On the other hand, opponents claim that free market has benefitted multinational corporations at expense of the local people, culture and enterprises. The management concepts create a significant
In the “Deforestation” article under the heading Increased Greenhouse Gas Emissions, it states, “Tropical forests hold more than 210 megatons of carbon, and deforestation represents around 15% of greenhouse gas emissions.” A side effect of this is that greenhouse gases are being emitted into the atmosphere. The gas, when being released into the atmosphere, contributes to the rising temperature, the changes in the weather and water, and an increase in extreme weather events. When the greenhouse gases are emitted into the air the weather pattern can change an affect the forest dwelling creatures, their habitat and decrease the ability to get food and water. Some believe that this can be one of the major causes that it contributing to global warming today. Deforestation is an important issue that needs to be addressed and discussed soon.
Another way to reform globalization is for the government not demoralize other values for materialistic values. For example many corporations contribute to materialism by their worldwide advertising and also the crooked high profits to the social cost and
raises an important question of whether we should readdress what it means to be considered a developed nation. While economic growth has been the standard for many scholars measuring country’s development level, measuring the economic equality level will shed more light on what it truly means to be developed. Just because a nation has a large market does not mean that the citizens are enjoying the growth. There has to be a way to address issues on economic equality. My intention is not ridicule the U.S. government for its lack of effort; after all it is doing better than the average country.
Big corporations bring their harmful factories not allowed in the west into developing countries in hopes to exploit the human rights of others for profit. Originally people intended corporations to be for the public good. Corporations argue that their actions are still positive and globalization allows the spread of democracy and human rights. Exposing
Carbon dioxide which is a strong gas releaser has caused changing conditions in the atmosphere that we live in. To show the great dangers that humans have had on the atmospheric gases the 7.3 billion people on Earth pull in twice the amount of carbon dioxide produced by trees and oceans (Gonzalez 2). The carbon dioxide emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million for a monthly average in Spring 2013 (Fleur 1). The conditions of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the amount that is consuming the air we breathe , doesn’t look like it will be stopping anytime soon. In 2014, the average amount of global carbon dioxide rose to 397.7 parts per million, and comparing that to the emissions of the year 1750 which was 278 million parts per million (Fleur 2).
