To protect the citizens of the United Kingdom and also the people of the world, the UK requests all countries to focus on climate change and adaptations plans in order to be well equipped for the attacks of natural disasters. Acknowledging the fact that climate change is happening, the United Kingdom has been advocating the UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol, and much more. Through UN conferences the UK has made various efforts in order to meet the goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. Many legislations and policies have been made to achieve these goals, one of which is the implementation of the 2008 Climate Change Act.

By describing ecologism, this research essay will specify why ecologism provides the best path for tackling environmental problems in the contemporary world by elaborating on specific branches of environmentalism and why other frameworks like liberalism and capitalism are not the best path to protect the environment and tackle environmental problems. Since the dawn of industrial civilization, there has been a rapid increase in environmental problems. Air, water and land pollution has greatly increased as the industries of the world developed and will continue to increase exponentially in the near future. “The Industrial Revolution greatly accelerated the release of pollutants into the environment and the variety of pollutants and the extent of pollution are now greater than ever in history” (Radojevic & Nikolaevich 2006, p.6). As the pollutant... ... middle of paper ... ... Environmental Policy and Sustainable Development in China: Hong Kong in Global Context, Policy Press, UK.
A recent study conducted by Building Futures in association with RIBA surveyed the various demographics of the construction industry to establish their thoughts and opinions in regards to the state of architectural profession today, and in the future. The document identifies the concern that conventional building design is shifting from the architects to the various sub-contractors for a multitude of reasons [Jamieson, 2010: 12]. The most obvious being the increased complexity and required specialisation of the building elements, which will further require a specific workforce utilising other educational qualifications. It is ironic that under this opinion architects have reverted back to their initial scope-depth state, having expertise in all but specialising in none. One could contribute this back to Vitruvius, who prescribed an architect to have an expansive knowledge including philosophy, arithmetic and geometry amongst others skills, effectively indicating that an architect should be a jack of all trades and a master of none.
However, the number of architects depends on the volume of construction, and with the construction industry being sensitive to changes in the economy, poor economics could result in layoffs. On the other hand, architects can find work through self-employment, developing graphic design, interior design, product specialties, and the construction of museums, and display firms. Also, many architects “are employed in government agencies such as the Departments of Defense, Interior, and Housing and Urban Development, and the General Services Administration” (Careers in Focus: Architecture and Building 8,12). Architecture has many positive effects and promising outlooks in society, which makes it a great career to pursue.

Both of the author’s perspectives on this issue are well informed and backed up with credible sources. They both explain the need to reduce our greenhouse emissions and create a global commitment that will slow down the climate change and help create a sustainable planet. In 1988, the United Nations formed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It was created to assess climate change and present the world with a scientific view on the current state of climate control and the environmental and economic impacts of climate change. There are 195 countries that are a part of this organization and thousands of scientists are involved with the work.
Architects must compete with other architects to attract clients by presenting designs. This process generally rests on building a good reputation as an architect. Because of the nature and the large amounts of time spent on designing, architects must work long hours when their skill is required during different stages of construction. The training required to become a practicing architect in Oregon is a bachelor’s degree. The individual must graduate with a degree in architecture from a program accredited by the National Accrediting Board.

Research Essay #3 The profession of architecture, the possible career as an architect, taking steps to gain a position and education as well as the set growth and prospects of this profession. According to Lee W. Waldrep (2010), author of the book Becoming a Architect “A Guide to Careers in Design, an architect is an imaginative person who designs a wide range of structures for buildings”(p. 2). These structures not only have to be aesthetically pleasing, but must also meet the safety requirements. Architects have to compete with other architects to attract customers by presenting designs. This process is generally based on building a reputation as an architect.
