The planet may tear itself apart in the name of climate, as globalization progresses, so does a country 's need for resources. Resources that some countries have, and others need. He introduces the idea that in future, nations may to stop issues like global warming, but at the same time defend themselves from others. Military forces in many countries have taken issue in climate changes, suggesting they are preparing for what could come. The United States military is engrossed in the “reality of the mission”, meaning it concerns itself with matters like responding to instability, in the form of things like relief work. Furthermore dealing with the possible failure of nation states that are on the brink of unsustainability, suggesting a natural disaster could set them over the edge and lead to anarchy. Something like a draught, can cause a weaker country to strike out, possibly even at the United States. Therefore the USA has taken great measures to make sure its military is prepared for any kind of climate-based aggression that may arise. The USA is one of many countries that are preparing for the future, if this is how nations are preparing, it paints a picture for what could come.

    They hope to instruct and convince as many people as possible to fight for the future of the planet. From the technical point of view, this issue is of dangerous importance, and requires close inspection of historical patterns, alteration of current practices, and close observing of the atmospheric content in the upcoming. Many scientists assume that the general public is aware with the science about the atmosphere, and some people may disagree because they simply do not recognize how the influence of extreme CO2 excess could contribute to a alteration in global weather configurations. Others are alert of the situation, but are indisposed to make changes because their attention is in another…

    This relates to the issue of global warming in that the world is slowly being degraded due to pollution, over usage for production, and other issues, all of which are factors of climate change. Hardin proposes a solution for this problem with the idea of “mutual coercion mutually agreed upon,” which requires people to work out a solution that may force them to give up privileges now in order to benefit in the long run (Hardin, 1968). However, due to the fact that the most optimal condition in this situation would be equilibrium, none of the actors are motivated to change their behavior (Ostrom, 2014). Even if a group of people decides to alter their choices, there may be “free-riders,” or people who do not follow the set guidelines and instead reap the…

    Craven oversimplifies the issue, and although it may have been deliberate in order to make is argument seem more crucial, by only discussing the extreme cases he misses other factors that should be considered. We cannot fully consider the risks unless we actually know what we are risking. When Craven is discussing what taking action will be like he only discusses the cost. Although significant action may be costly there are also other factors to consider, like how significant action for climate change will affect our daily lives. In the essay “Science says revolt!” by Naomi Klein the significant action for climate change that she is calling for is revolutionary because in her perspective global capitalism is the root of the climate change problem.…

    Finally, many countries, make reaching a comprehensive international climate change agreement difficult by taking on defensive attitudes rather than constructive ones regarding the degree of responsibility they have in global warming in comparison to other states. This, is a determining factor in how much they believe they should need to make changes and contribute to reducing their emissions. In her article: “Negotiating challenges and climate change”, Joyeeta Gupta uses negotiation theory to provide insight into the bargaining strategies used by states during climate talks which affect the agreement construction process. It serves as a useful way of understanding the outcome of strategies used by developed and developing countries. On one…

    Certain areas of the world become more habitable as a result of global warming and some areas will be less habitable. Things are going to change but not all of it is negative as projected by Al Gore’s movie. We need to have a balanced view of global warming and not just a reactionary view and rushing to judgment. To make rash changes without proven data would certainly be more harmful and devastating to life. So, after hearing man’s view, it would be wise to seek godly counsel.…

    Specific societies live in luxury and damage the environment in order to take on the raw materials provided by the planet. Society faces a structural issue, for certain beliefs and lifestyles as well as governmental priorities are the influences of wasteful ways. Large populations’ “minds are clouded by our desire for material pleasure,” and this fuels harmful acts in regard to the environment (The Only True Solution to Mitigate Climate Change). In order to properly initiate the only practical global warming solution, everyone must put in effort to ease the effects of climate change.

    Voting requires that one analyze the social ramifications of a specific issue. Recognizing the possible problems that come with ignoring our planet should be the key factors that one weighs their vote on regarding these issues. Some possible effects of continued climate change at its current rate would be rising sea levels, stronger storm systems, more floods and droughts, and the spread of diseases (National Geographic). These effects are enough to scare anyone, so why do so many Christians ignore this rising problem? Policies that begin to limit our country’s carbon emissions and cleaner energy policies can limit our use of fossil fuels and effectively make a change for the better of our planet.…
