Climate change and global warming have always been a concern to humanity. Both have destroy homes and buildings, wasted billions of cash, and it had also altered people’s lifestyles in various ways. Global warming is the cause of the rising temperatures of the world, and that is where climate change takes place. Although awareness towards these continual changes have increased from place to place, the fact that it continues to grow means that the action against it is just not enough. Some of these concerns are carbon emission, massive loss of trees, and continual change of climate change. Fighting climate change has proven to be a difficult task, and that is where world leaders has started to take steps against it. Global warming happens when …show more content…
Not only does it increase the temperature of the country, it causes haze which affected vision, health, and death. Half of the fires in Sumatra are occurring on carbon-rich peat lands, contributing to the extremely poor air quality and spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere (Minnemeyer, 2015). Some of the fires were also burning inside pulp and paper and oil palm concessions, others are on land controlled by smallholders (bid). According to Rachmat Gobel (n.d) “Our temperature has risen by 0.3 degrees Celsius since 1990. The trend is expected to continue. An increase in temperature by 2.0 degrees Celsius could reduce the crop yield by 4.3 per cent. That is a recipe for disaster in an agricultural country.” Henry Purnomo claimed that, “Removing the culture of political patronage that protects private companies in Indonesia is essential.” (Balch, 2015). “Another major contribution to reducing future fires would be an up-to-date online, searchable land registry.” …show more content…
As the temperature of the Earth kept rising slowly, Arctic residents struggled to keep their homes. “Climate change has brought a myriad of issues to the far north, but rising sea levels are now threatening existing home owners and contributing to housing shortages” (Hansman, 2016). “The strong global warming observed since the mid-20th century has been largely attributed to human influences on the climate (Facts on Climate Change, 2015). The rate of global warming over the last half of the 20th century was about twice for the whole century. This human influence results primarily from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas” (ibid). On the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, the cultivation of sugar palm trees allows both the forest to be protected from deforestation, and the changing climate to be restored and the encouragement of wealth sharing at a local level (Jan, n.d). According Jan’s summary in an article, “Indonesia is the planet’s largest cutter of trees. Deforestation is twice as fast as in Amazonia here. Nearly eighty percent of the primary forest have already disappeared.” (ibid). “Economists agree that acting to reduce fossil fuel emissions would be far less expensive than dealing with the consequences of not doing so.” (What is climate change,
