Global warming is a serious matter in the humanity of today. All the information given in this essay has a strict relation to the most relevant powers of the world such as the United States, Japan, Canada, and Australia whose usually see eye to eye with each other about global warming.Other countries, either less developed or more climate aware, do not agree with the countries that are more industrial, because they want strict regulations on air pollution that the more developed countries do not want. The more industrialized countries complain because they say that in order to keep the world going at a safe and orderly peace, they cannot have a change in their lifestyle that theyare used to have today. Both sets of countries know that the amount of greenhouse gasses need to be lightened, but cannot come up with a viable solution. In order to understand what the countries are talking about, in this essay will be explained the reasons why the earth is warming and what exactly are the things on Earth that consumes CO2 in the life of the plants and also if seasons arechanging with the global warming.
The industrial nations cut down and consume more trees then they can reforest. Furthermore, toxins and pollutants kill plant life in the oceans like algae. This is the most relevant reason for the abundance of CO2 also accurate and representative temperature measurements from satellites and balloons have demonstrated that our planet has become significantlycolder in the last years, losing almost 15% of the claimed warming which took over 100 years to appear that warming was only one degree Fahrenheit, and part of this is a systematic error from ground station.
In order to help reduce these gasses in the U.S. and around the world the United Nations of America have held conferences to try to establish an environmental policy.There was a proposed treaty, which was called the Kyoto Protocol. This treaty explained that certain countries were to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 2012 to at least 5 percent below emissions in 1990. So far, no industrialized countries have ratified the pact. There were too many provisions and the United States could not continue. They could not put their industrial revolution on working,even if it was for the environment healthy. No one can seem to agree on this treaty, so this conference ended with little progress.
Most countries could not agree on certain parts of the provisions of the treaty. The European Union and the United States remain far apart on key provisions, including the quantity of credit a nation can get by investing in environment protection projects abroadand how much credit towards emissions cuts could be gained by using forests to absorb carbon dioxide. Many environmental campaigners stood in disapproval because countries would only have to save forests to receive credit for emissions goals and not by lowering pollution made by cars and burning fossil fuels. The United States wanted to take credit for not cutting down as many trees, but failedto lower standards for factories. It was told to the UN that they were doing their part, when in fact they were doing very little.
One of the main reasons why the rest of the planet is discontented with the United States of America is that they produce most of the greenhouse gasses on the planet; the reason for this is the large amounts of factories, and additionally to this, theirrejection of the treaty of Kyoto. Even thou the treaty had been negotiated and signed by
the US. The European Union considered financial penalties on imported goods from USA but went away from that idea again since it would cause more bad than good.
For a long...
