Three Problems of Climate […]

Negative Impacts of Climate Change in the Urban Areas and Possible Strategies to Address Them

Introduction Climate change is indisputable and in the absence of considerable changes in policy, the trend is bound to continue. The global emissions of gases, along with the associated climate change, will undoubtedly result in widespread economic costs and impacts across diverse regions and sectors. Hunt and Watkiss (2011) have underscored the increasing acknowledgement of […]

Climate change and consumption: which way the wind blows in Indiana

People have always been taking nature for granted. Although nature supplies all the necessary resources for people to survive, up until recently there has been little respect towards nature. However, even nowadays, a phenomenon known as consumption still makes the relationships between people and nature complicated. Because of high rates of consumption in the state […]

The United Nation’s response to climate change

Introduction After years of releasing harmful gases into the atmosphere, the global climatic trends have been disrupted leading to a rise in incidents of undesirable conditions like drought (Marsh and Henrik 2000). Climate change has reached alarming levels and, over time, countries have come out to declare their intention to deal with the issues. This […]

Global Climate Change

Introduction According to Burroughs (2), Climate change is defined the alteration of the weather patterns of a particular place over a long period of time. This alteration can be traced by measuring the weather phenomenon under parameters such as temperature, precipitation and wind patterns. This climate change can only be proven by comparing the climatic […]

Biology of climate change

There is sufficient evidence that recent climate change is a result of human activities. “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal; as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global mean sea level (L9).” The presence of excessive greenhouse gases […]

Climate Change, Coming Home: Global warming’s effects on populations

The climate change has brought about many changes that humanity was not ready for, including a shifting pattern of crop’s growth and emergence of diseases. The Earth’s population must get ready to a new era that will require a more efficient use of energy and a better conservation of people’s health. The article “Climate Change, […]

Social Concepts and Climate Change

Introduction Climate change is probably the biggest threat to societies and communities. While skeptics hold the notion that climate change is overrated and non-existent, proponents articulate that effects of climate are already apparent. Studies have revealed that climate change is in fact a major cause of diseases, famines and droughts experienced in different parts of […]

Climate change and extreme weather conditions

Climate change has been widely discussed in all aspects. In this regard, the latest global heat wave rekindled the debate on climate change. Proponents of climate change argue that human activities are to be blamed for the current global climate change. Essentially, human activities are cited as the major cause of global warming. The Intergovernmental […]

Climate change and human health

Introduction The world is progressively being charged with resolving very difficult policy problems, which are particularly the problems of climate change and human health. Working out or handling these universal problems successfully demands a re-evaluation of some of the conventional techniques currently being employed. Fruitful handling of the issue of climate change and human health […]
