Climate change is the effect of the Global Warming. At present, there is a debate on whether or not there is in fact a global warming or just merely a climate change. The Republicans are vocal about this. Donald Trump has denied the position that there is indeed a global warming but only climate change.
Global Warming is the increase of the temperature in the atmosphere due to the carbon dioxide emission. This creates a greenhouse effect in our atmosphere. For many years, many experts have warned the effects of carbon emission. In fact, there has been many attempt to reduce the emission. Kyoto Protocol was one of the agreements that catalyzed the nations to help reduce the effects of global warming.
Climate change causes the sea level rise, global temperature rise, warming of the oceans, shrinking ice sheets, declining arctic sea ice, glacial retreat, extreme weather events, ocean acidification, decreased snow cover. Because of these, the food chain is affected. The population of the species are decreasing because either their habitat has changed or loses it. Stronger typhoons and flash floods are most likely to occur that leads to many deaths and destruction of infrastructures.
The denial of Donald Trump of the effects of the climate change plays a big role in the reduction of the effects of the global warming. Donald Trump is a president of the most influential nation – the United States of America. This sends a message that the fact of the global warming is not true because of the influence of USA. The denial may create a notion that the global warming is just an idea.
The denial of Donald Trump on the global warming may be due to two reasons: 1. Donald Trump has a business mind, and 2. To stir up discussion.
It has been known to everybody that Trump is a business tycoon. In fact he is one of the highly celebrated business men. He has appeared to television shows and movies due to this. His fame in the business also contributed to his winning as a president of the US. There are many businesses that are non-compliant to the carbon emission reduction because of its high cost. The airline industry, for example, are one of the most contributors to the carbon emission in the atmosphere. Without sanction from the government, the airline industry shall continue to add to the effects of the global warming. The denial of the head of state, Trump, to the global warming is giving the commercial industry the confidence to continue their carbon emission. Hence, the continuing effects of the global warming that leads to the climate change.
On the other hand, however, if we are to analyze the actions of Donald Trump, there is consistency to it. The denial of Donald Trump on the effects of the global warming is stirring up discussion.
Donald Trump won the elections because of his atrocious actions. He would swear, discriminate and even act rudely to the people around him. This has created a discussion – media. The noise that Trump created throughout the world has made him the topic of every medium, especially to the social media.
Because of this, more people are talking about the global warming. It raises a question: is global warming really true? Experts now are more committed to prove the existence of the global warming and it affects. People are becoming more aware on the facts. This discussion may eventually lead to action towards the reduction on the effects of the global warming.
At the end of the day, we can never tell the purpose of Donald Trump on the denial on the global warming. But as stewards of the earth, each must learn to be aware of the changes that the environment is experiencing.
