IntroductionGlobal warming, also referred to as climate change, is the rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. The effects of global warming can be can be catastrophic to the world as we know it. Global warming can impact the society in many ways, some of the ways it can affect society are through the change of temperatures, sea levels rising, and the quality of the air we breathe. Some of the changes that I would want to see are things like companies beginning to show that they are trying to stop polluting into the environment by trying to cut down on the amount of greenhouse gases that they emit. This issue is very important for us to look at since if we do not change the amount of greenhouse gases that we are emitting than the world will start to become uninhabitable. The earth is like a human body if we take good care of our body than we will feel better but if we treat our body like trash than we will start to feel like trash.Global Warming BackgroundGlobal Warming is happening everywhere we look since this will affect all parts of the world from the middle of Africa to Antarctica. The people involved in global warming is everyone since everyone can help to stop global warming. On the other hand, a lot of people neglect the effects of global warming as they do not care to try and help stop polluting the environment. There are many major concerns that are associated with global warming, some of them are rising sea levels and increased coastal flooding, longer and more damaging wildfire seasons, more destructive hurricanes, and more frequent and intense heat waves. If these things begin to happen the world as we know it will begin to change, water will flood most places and the amount of habitable land will begin to shrink and then we will have an overpopulation problem. The awareness of global warming began in 1896 when a scientist by the name Svante Arrhenius calculated the effect of a doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide would increase surface temperatures by five to six degrees Celsius. Even though his calculations showed that increasing the levels of carbon dioxide would increase the surface temperature no one did anything about it since they did not believe that it would hurt the environment or society. It wasn’t until the 1970’s when the media began to start to talk about some of the effects of global warming. This began to make people aware of what global warming and climate change really was and what it could possibly do to our environment. This problem still occurs in our society now because of how long we have taken to realize what global warming is and what it can do, and how long it has taken to realize the effects of global warming. For example, The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty which extends the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This treaty only had a commitment for 4 years where countries had to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which is not really a long time, especially if we want to start seeing significant changes. Another problem is that people do not put in enough effort to see a significant change. For instance, the pollution from driving everywhere, smoking, and landfills are heavily impacting the environment if we were able to cut down our pollution on things like that we would start to begin seeing changes that would help put an end to global warming. Efforts to Address Global WarmingCanada continues to work with its global partners to address climate change. For example, Canada played an active and positive role in negotiating the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Canada is also a part of other international organizations and initiatives that help to reduce global GHG emissions. For example, Canada is a founding partner and major financial contributor to the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), an international, voluntary initiative aimed at reducing pollutants (SLCPs) such as black carbon. In addition, Canada chaired the Arctic Council in 2013–2015. Under Canada’s chairmanship, the Arctic Council started the Task Force for Action on Black Carbon and Methane. The Task Force secured an agreement by Arctic States and the participating Observer States to significantly reduce overall methane emissions. One way in which Canada helps to advance global efforts is to address climate change by supporting adaptation of renewable energy in developing countries, through climate finance. For example, in 2014, Canada pledged $300 million to the Green Climate Fund, a global fund that provides support to developing countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the impacts of climate change. This funding builds on Canada’s previous investment of $1.2 billion under the Fast-Start Financing Initiative that has supported adaptation, clean energy, and sustainable forestry and agriculture projects in more than 65 developing countries. In 2015, Canada committed to contributing $150 million to the G7 African Renewable Energy Initiative, a plan to bring 10 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy to the continent by 2020. Offering access to affordable and renewable energy services can play a huge role in relieving poverty and stopping global warming. There are also international agreements like the Paris agreement and the Kyoto agreement. These agreements involve most countries around the world to lower the amount of greenhouses gases they emit every year to try to help the environment.Suggestions to Help Stop Global WarmingThere are many great ways to help stop global warming, one of them is global warming initiatives with the governments to help stop global warming. Some of the initiatives are things like renewable resources, recycling programs, and public transit. Renewable resources are one of the initiatives that governments should try to put into place. Some renewable resources are things like solar energy, wind energy, biomass, and geothermal energy. Use of these types of energy will help stop global warming since it will reduce the amount of pollution from burning fossil fuels and we will also never run out of renewable energy. Countries should also start making funds where they invest money into green energies. Another thing they can do is things like encouraging recycling and compost so that less waste will be put into landfills. To do this they should start doing things like always having unlimited recycling, and putting a limit on garbage or fining people that put out too much garbage a week. In addition, they could start to fine people who put out vast amounts of garbage every week and give people tax rebates who put out a lot of recycling each week. Public transit is also another thing the government can do to help reduce the amount of pollution happening in the country. Public transit will help since it will cut down the amount of cars that are producing carbon dioxide and instead of one person per car you could have 20 people on one bus. One idea that I have to help stop global warming would be to put a limit on every corporation/companies greenhouse gas emissions. Then if they exceed those limits you should give them a heavy fine, that is enough that companies would try to stop polluting. Also, if the company keeps exceeding the greenhouse gas emissions they should be shut down, no matter how large or popular the company is. ConclusionIn conclusion, if we do not start to reduce the amount of pollution that we as humans emit into the environment we could start to see catastrophic changes to the earth as we know it. Some of the ways we can start to help stop global warming are by doing things like using renewable resources, recycling, public transit, and coming together as a nation to decrease the amount of greenhouse gases we emit every year. Since we want to start to see significant changes in the amount of greenhouse gases that are being emitted every year by having companies, corporations and citizens reduce the amount of pollution they are emitting.
