191. Climate Change

Description

Climate change is one of the top policy problems for humanity. First of all, it is a global problem. It is driven by the energy economy – so it is at the heart of economic development. The consequences are great. Secondly, it is slow moving, and we cannot observe it day by day, or even year by year. It is a complicated problem, and one in which there are many powerful lobby groups – namely TNCs related to the energy industry – with much vested interest in preserving the status quo.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• The Greenhouse Effect.
• The Keeling Curve.
• Consequences.
• Mitigation and adaptation.
