How The Current System Is The Most Advanced System We Will Ever Have?

We believe that the current system we have for humanity and that it is the most advanced system we will ever have (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). Yet there are so many issues and problems going on in the world today that it makes it hard to make sense of it all (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). Once you break these issues and problems apart into more understanding issues, it makes it easier to make sense of it all (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). Policy makers see these issues as Climate change, peak energy, water scarcity and food depletion (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). These issues are the main reason for our failing global system (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). However, you have people studying these issues who all have different views and looking at the issues only in isolation…show more content…
E. 2011, p 413). This is because climate change can be slowed down however, it cannot be reversed (Tepperman, L., & Curtis, J. E. 2011, p 413). To explain how global warming happens is when greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, CFS and methane are released and gather in the atmosphere, known as the greenhouse effect (Tepperman, L., & Curtis, J. E. 2011, p 413). The heat is then trapped and reflected off the earth’s surface which ultimately causes global temperatures to rise, which then causes climates to change (Tepperman, L., & Curtis, J. E. 2011, p 413). The real issue is how fast this climate change is actually happening which makes it difficult and causes problems for civilization to survive (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). Furthermore, there are other factors such as fossil fuels and the sun that are speeding up climate change (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). To fix this, policy makers have agreed to limit how much fossil fuels we emit to the atmosphere (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). They suggested that the world emits 450 parts per million of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, then by 2050 the temperature would only increases by 2 degrees (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). If by that time it is able to be stabilized, the worst effects of climate change will be avoided (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). However, this is very unlikely, James Hanson who was part of NASA did his own calculations to prove the policy makers wrong (Mosaddeq, N., 2011). He calculated that it should be 350 parts per
