Global Warming The major threat of today’s world is global warming. Due to various reasons global warming turns out to be a serious issue in the last few years. Today people believe in global warming while this concept was not so much believed and people interpreted in some other meanings what was happening in the past. Global warming is amplification in the temperature of earth because of industrial pollution, fossil fuels, and agricultural practices caused by human being, other and natural gas emissions. Because of this greenhouse gases are released in large quantity. Solar radiations of short wave type go down under the earth and increase its surface temperature, while infrared radiations of long wave type that is released by earth…show more content…
International Efforts Today global warming is an international challenge and needs global strategies to prevent it. Greenhouse gas emanation has the same effect on the climate whether they occur in London, Washington, or Dhaka. As a result, steps taken by one country to minimize emissions will result slight to decelerate global warming except other countries so something as well. Eventually, an effective plan will need action and dedication from all countries with major emission. In this regard, the international reaction to the change in atmosphere was started in 1992 with the agreement on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2. The purpose of this convention was to become stable with efforts on greenhouse gases to keep it on constant level in order to restrict risky anthropogenic intervention with the atmosphere system. Again, by realizing that stronger plan was required, global countries discussed the 1997 Kyoto Protocol which starts working on 16, Feb, 2005. In this convention countries agreed “to reduce emission by 5.4% in 2012 in comparison of 1990 emission level” 2. To control global warming, in 2003, the Pew Center established a convention in which more than 100 policy makers and stakeholder from 36 countries were invited to address this issue 3. This convention results in the off-line meetings between 15 countries’ senior policy makers to
