If the global warming ... ... middle of paper ... ...as human we need to take care of it by following all the correct measurement. Maybe, the smallest action can bring huge difference to the world and help to save the ecosystem. Any extinction species can be preserved and make a plantation to help the world green. Cut off any unnecessary activities that bring damage to the surrounding.
The dispute over the environmental issues has always been of great interest for people. Nowadays, when the matter of natural resources depletion becomes one of the most relevant challenges the humanity is facing, there is a need for joint efforts to establish an efficient environmental policy. This paper will be discussing the current environmental issues and policies to reduce the negative environmental impact of people’s activities. Since the role of the corporation in damaging nature is unambiguous, we will also take a look at how do large companies may contribute to the process of nature protection and what role can a corporate environmental policy play for reduction on negative consequences of anthropogene impact on the environment.

Instead, there are positive ways energy sources, which could lower harmful carbon dioxide emission, which comes from the burning of fossil fuels and usage oils and gases, which would help slow down global warming and climate change. The burning of fossil fuels affects everyone and everything in the world by harming the environment and the earth’s atmosphere. If the human population doesn’t continue to find ways to help or to slow down global warming then the harmful effects on the environment will continue to get worse as time goes on, as it has done throughout the past years.
The use of technology requires the energy of fossil fuels to keep it running. By using fossil fuel energy we are releasing harmful green-house gases into our atmosphere, we are slowly bringing forth climate changes and environmental issues to our society. To respond to these global warming issues, we must promote awareness and educate people in our society and let them know that humans influence the environment around them. We must also educate people to find better technological advances that will improve global and environmental issues, by doing so we will drastically alter the environment around us in a more positive way. Many years ago, society thought that the threat of global warming would never arise during our life time expectancies as well as our children’s generation.
In other words, as human beings consume and deplete the resources of the world, our industrial by-products are piling up (Bodley, 2008). As such, it is important to stress the fact that environmental crisis is not only about environmental problems, but it is about the intertwined concerns regarding politics, economics, society and ideologies (Bodley 2008, p. 43). In this regard, this research will try to address one of the most important environmental issues that we are: are alternative energy sources the answer to ending human dependence to oil? This is an important question because the reality of human dependence to oil is attested by the fact that countries all over the globe have to ensure energy security to sustain their economies and in case they fail, the threat of conflict becomes unavoidable (Moran and Russell, 2008). Furthermore, as of 2009, 85 percent of total primary energy consumption involves the use of fossil fuels – oil, natural gas and coal (Statistical Review of World Energy, 2009) and this is a big issue because oil is finite.
This essay will discuss the problem of global warming, the causes and suggest the best ways to solve this controversial issue. The factors responsible for global warming are both natural, and man-made. Many of the causes of global warming are human activities, which contribute to green house gas emissions in the atmosphere. The increase in greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere reinforces the green house effect, which later leads to global warming. The largest contributor to global warming is carbon dioxide, as it holds the largest part of green house gases in the atmosphere.

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution early in the nineteenth century, our ability to change the world around us has become profound. At first, the impact on our planet was almost imperceptible, but as we have grown both in number and technological capability, that influence has grown with us. Lately, the effects of our increased activity have begun to manifest themselves in a multitude of subtle, and some not so subtle ways: we have thinned the ozone layer and may now be starting to change the very climate system upon which we and all other life on Earth depend. In effect, we are experimenting with the future, but unlike performing a laboratory experiment, which can be scrapped and begun anew if it fails, altering the climate is something that cannot be easily undone. Whatever happens, we shall all be forced to live with the consequences for a very long time.
The ecological crisis we face has been caused through anthropocentric behavior that is advantageous to humans, but whether or not anthropocentric attitudes can solve environmental issues effectively is up for debate. Ecologism in theory claims that in order for the ecological crisis to be dealt with absolutely, value and equality has to be placed in the natural world as well as for humans. This is contrasting to many of the dominant principles people in the contemporary world hold, which are more suited to the standards of environmentalism and less radical approaches to conserving the earth. I will argue in this essay that whilst ecologism could most effectively tackle environmental problems, the moral code of ecologism has practical and ethical defects that threaten the values and progress of anthropocentricism and liberal democracy. Ecologism is the political philosophy that recognizes the intrinsic worth of the natural environment and all living beings, including the earth itself as an organism that has rights that should be protected..

Since these initial findings, there has been significant research into determining whether or not this relationship exists. Do all factors in environmental quality systematically correlate with economic development? Of course, there are many other variables that may impact environmental quality, however, many of these variables are endogenously embedded in the model and are related to the development of society as the economy evolves. For instance, does the EKC model fails to determine whether the solution to preventing environmental decline is more economic growth; or if pollution is simply an unfortunate output from economic development that we are responsible for abating once the benefits from production outweigh the negative environmental and human health costs. The American economist Simon Kuznets is famous for winning the Nobel Prize in 1971.
