Climate change in Kiribati is allegedly associated with the environmental pollution and chemical by-products of other nations such as Australia, England, China, and the United States. In this paper, I will say historical responsibility is the most important element of climate justice, because the injustice has been started from the past. Did you know that there are many things that we could do to help, but people just put them to the side because they feel that it isn 't important to reduce, reuse, and recycle. These scientist have presented vital scientific evidence that shows that the earth 's climate is warming at an alarming rate. Glaciers are melting faster than they ever have, trees are flowering sooner, and animal ranges have shifted like never before.
Nitrous oxide N 2O is formed by many microbial reactions in soils and waters, including those acting on the increasing amounts of nitrogen-containing fertilizers. As the Earth warms up it may lead to significant rise in sea levels, chaotic weather patterns, and catastrophic droughts. Some natural ecosystems are more vulnerable to changes in climate than others Hughes 2011. Global average temperatures have increased more than 1. Yet these ac- tions could also decrease sediment flows to the coast, increasing the problem of coastal erosion and the vulnerability of coastal infrastructure to sea level rise. Warming temperatures caused by anthropogenic climate change have disastrous consequences that pose a threat to humanity and the environment.
Global warming is one of the main factors that contribute to the climate change. They impact radiation budgets both directly and indirectly; they are believed to contribute to global warming, although their relative importance is difficult to quantify at this point. Strengthen the ability of the Coastal Zone Management program to address climate impacts by increasing support for the development and implementation of state coastal adaptation plans and strategies. Placed in a larger context of sustainable development, climate change adaptation can contribute to a coherent and efficient national response to climate change that encourages linkages and partnerships across boundaries between different types of institutions in our society. The last glacial period which current glaciers are the result of it, occurring during the last years of Pleistocene, from approximately 110,000 to 10,000 years age Clayton, 1997. It has become more apparent since the mid to late 20th century onwards and is attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. The global warming that has been observed in recent decades was caused by elevated levels of , due primarily to human activities.
People that have knowledge about climate change should inform the people that do not have Catherine Jimenez Dr. The assessment included 12 key messages, which are summarized here. It is our hope that readers will use the information in this guide—paired with the latest advances in climate science, engineering, economics, and environmental policy—to communicate climate change in a way that resonates with their audience.

We do not know enough about adaptation approaches that are available across scales, sectors, and parts of the population.
While our understanding of how climate change affects extreme weather is still developing, evidence suggests that extreme weather may be affected even more than anticipated. I learned that there are many factors that can cause climate change in the world. However, even though the United States is one of the largest known sources of extreme gas emissions, we cannot only blame it and the other developed countries. His main idea was that the Earth technically had a blanket around it, trapping in heat and keeping us as warm as we are. What the world is more worried about is that the changes that are occurring today have been speeded up because of man's activities.
The main conclusions regarding these impacts are summarized in Figures 2 and 3. Conclusion Gaining public support for climate change policies and encouraging environmentally responsible behavior depends on a clear understanding of how people process information and make decisions. Mean temperature variations at local sites have exceeded 10°C 18°F in association with the repeated glacial advances and retreats that occurred over the course of the past million years. Action is also needed to begin to adapt to the warming that is already occurring and that will continue. Such gases never let sun rays to go back to the atmosphere however trap heat from them.
The causes of climate change are also known to them that though it is not only the human action playing role but it is the main cause of climate change. Please or to access full text content. The heavy dependence of fossil fuels will continue to increase the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere in a few decades. Burning coal, oil and natural gases are the main cause of global warming. For example, while the large reduction in summer threatens the future of several ice-dependent , including polar bears and seals, and the peoples that depend upon them, it may also enable the expansion of Arctic shipping routes. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions i.
Human activities such as industry, transport, energy generation and deforestation all produce these. Many human activities and technological development in the world are forcing the greenhouse gases to increase and getting collected to the atmosphere which in turn makes the earth surrounding hot and warm by increasing the temperature of the environment in fast and easy way. Most of the available data are terrestrial, rather than oceanic, and are concentrated in Europe and North America, leading to difficulties in drawing a global picture. This paper seeks to address and analyze the ways in which climate skeptics speak about and understand climate change as well as how climate scientists understand climate change phenomena. The findings of this first Arctic Climate Impact Assessment provide a scientific basis upon which decision makers can consider, craft, and implement appropriate actions to respond to this important and far-reaching challenge.
Several factors has created a change in climate but there have been countless effects to Earth because of climate change and severe weather is one of those effects. First, there must be an international political solution. Weather station records and ship-based observations indicate that global mean surface air temperature warmed between about 0. This can be supported by the evidence of temperature changes. Freshwater availability is declining all over the world which is a vital resource of life on this planet.
Climate change is a topic that is brought up in many different genres of conversations. Introduction This report sets out four detailed recommendations for governments and other decision-makers, which can deliver significant economic benefits along with reducing the risk of climate change. For instance, records dating back to the 1800s show that the global average temperature increased by more than 1. . They respected the land and the people that cared for it. In order to slow the pace of climate change, we as a society have to change how we do things in order to confront climate change.
