DOES GLOBAL WARMING REQUIRE INTERNATIONAL INTERVENTION? IF SO, HOW? WHO IS TO BLAME FOR CLIMATE CHANGE? OUTLINE
The rising effects of climate change is a call to duty for countries across the globe. It is incumbent upon countries around the world to unite and take action such as cutting on carbon emissions, afforestation, and carbon sequestration to curb climate change. Major Content:
Among the issues this research paper plans to address include, What is global warming and climate change?
Is global warming a recent phenomenon or it’s been around since ages? How can one tell that global warming is that global warming is a fact or fiction? What are some of the effects of global warming?
After proving the existence of global warming this paper will dig further to figure out if global warming requires international intervention. How should the world fight global warming?
Should countries and international bodies join their arsenals to win this fight? Should organizations such as the United Nations, the African Union, and others make global warming a priority and solicit measures to combat it? Or are individual countries like Ghana and the United States capable of successfully dealing with global warming? If it turnout that global intervention is the best way to combat global warming, How should it be done? Should it be through global laws and regulations that would force every country to comply or through global treaties and accords that are only binding on countries that sign them? What resources must the world sacrifice to win the fight against global warming? Is there opportunity cost associated with using these resources in the fight against global warming? Analyze these cost What are some of the sets back (challenges) that must be circumvented to in other Who is to make the biggest sacrifice (how should the cost of fighting global warming be apportioned? Should Ghana and the United States be made to bear the same cost? If no, then how?) Why the need for these actions (why should the world unit against global warming)? What is the situation on global warming now?
How the future looks with respect to global warming?
What difference will global action against global warming utter this future Who is to blame for global?
Is it industrialized nations such as the US and Germany that used all means necessary to build huge empire? Is it developing countries like china and India thus consume tons of coal each It is human beings in general who have resorted greedy behaviors and abandoned their task as ambassadors of the Earth? Conclusion
At the end of this research, a detailed conclusion summarizing the various points and our positions on them would be presented. The conclusion would give concise and definitive response to questions such as, Does global warming require international intervention?
How should international bodies fight global warming?
Who is to blame for climate change and global warming?
In less than three decades, global warming has joined the ranks of poverty, war, and diseases as the most discussed international issues. While the United States is being bombarded with catastrophic hurricanes, people in East Africa are starving to death due to global warming. Whether one believes in global warming or not, the recent spike in storms, floods, droughts, bush fires, and other unbearable weather conditions cannot be ignored. According to formal vice president Al-gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” modern day climate change is the result of human activities and it will take nothing but the efforts of all humans to end this catastrophe. The rising effects of climate change are a call to duty for countries across the globe. It is incumbent upon countries around the world to unite and take action such as cutting on carbon emissions, afforestation, and carbon sequestration to curb climate change. From the website...
