Description:

This paper discusses how it has become clear that the earlier the mitigation for global warming process is set into motion the better the results. People have to learn to adapt and cope with the changes brought by the climate changes and their effects on their everyday lives. The paper also looks at the actions taken at the international conventions during the last two decades, such as the Earth Summit and the Kyoto Protocol, and how the efforts of environmentalists are a necessity accompanied by economists in the process of creating and implementing programs and policies destined to change human activities at a national as well as an individual level.

From the Paper:

"Governments are aware that the sources of energy that account for the major cause of greenhouse gas emissions due to human activities need to go through transformations and changes in order to reduce these to a level that will allow scientific researches to hope for numbers that will show a decrease in the pace global warming is showing right now. According to the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States, the main human activities causing the emissions of greenhouse gasses in the US are: "transportation, electricity production, industry, agriculture and forestry" among others. All aspects of life are affected by the global warming effects. Scientists, researchers and environmentalists point out that transformations due to climate changes are sizable everywhere without much difficulty: "sea level rise, shrinking glaciers, changes in the range and distribution of plants and animals, trees blooming earlier, lengthening of growing seasons, ice on rivers and lakes freezing later and breaking up earlier, and thawing of permafrost". "
