The Kyoto protocol is an agreement that originated in Japan. It's an agreement that the government settled on to stop pollution caused by greenhouse gas. It had to be developed by an agreement with stricter policies and demands for reducing greenhouse gas. All of this started in the year of 1994 and by 1995, the government discussed on a protocol.
21st century industrialization has a global impact by creating ecological and societal imbalances stemming from its nature to enervate resources and manual labor. The start of industrialization was a way to implement efficiency into mass production, ultimately creating opportunities for jobs and maximizing profit gains for companies. In today’s world, its toll on the environment and the way it shapes society becomes increasingly apparent and irreversible. Therefore, as society acknowledges these effects, changes have been made to address these issues.
Good morning, today I’m presenting to you about the industrial revolution. However, I’m specifically speaking about the industry’s effect on the environment from the years of 1750 to 1901. The question asked was “did the Industrial Revolution make the world a better place?” I’ve researched how the industry in Britain has not been a benefit to the environment. My task is to prove to you that the industrial revolution has not made the world a better place, and in fact, has made it worse off than it initially was.
The beginning of the second industrialization era, sparked the migration of people from rural communities to the new for of urban society. In the United States people were attracted by the big cities due to new jobs created .For example Chicago “symbolized the growing urbanization: In 1860, the city 's population was barely 109,000; thirty years later, it swelled to 1.1 million”. (Text) With the construction of a vast railroad system moving goods,cattle and people was a lot easier than ever. After 1880 American cities boomed, power cable cars replaced the horse car, and after the invention of electricity they were replaced too with streetcars and trolleys. Subways were constructed in New York Boston and Philadelphia, in order to prevent traffic jams. People with similar racial or ethnic backgrounds clustered together in the center of the cities. Suburbs were incorporated and formed large metropolis. Railroads companies built terminals gas and electricity were a new source of power for the city dwellers. By the 1920’s “Electricity drove technology in 1920s America, and technology helped drive prosperity. By 1928, two-thirds of the families in towns and cities had electricity in their homes, stimulating a huge demand for new appliances such as irons, vacuum cleaners, and the era 's great economic engine: radio.” (Text) Immigration was another big challenge for the big cities. The one way ticket immigration began, immigrants were defined as males , in search of a good life in a
During the late 19th and all of the 20th century many events took place affecting the current situation our world is facing today. The broad term, industrialization, refers to the development of goods produced by machinery and the discovery of new energy resources. Industrialization had many positive and negative effects on the citizens of the world during these two centuries. The events under industrialization could be said to have fallen victim to the “snowball effect” and been a cause of the situation that our world is facing today.
America was a time of rapid growth for people all across the country. The Industrial Revolution began a few years after the Civil War with the invention of steam powered machines. From there, America faced a time of massive expansion and modern industrialized cities popped up across the United States. While there was much success across the nation, such as manual labor becoming easier and a huge population growth, the negative effects of industrialization outweigh the positives. A few of the issues that made industrialization an atrocious time for many was the racism and segregation towards immigrants and unsafe and unfair working conditions/the deprivation of a regular childhood for kids across the nation.
The Kyoto Protocol is a binding international agreement, which began in Kyoto, Japan in 1997. As of June 2013, there were a total of 192 parties participating in the Kyoto Protocol, Canada was no longer one of them. Canada was one of the first to sign the agreement, in 1998; more than 4 years later, Canada formally approved the Kyoto Accord, in 2002 ("CBC.ca - Timeline: Canada and Kyoto"). This meant Canada would have to decrease its emissions, by 6% in comparison to 1990 levels (461 Mt), by the year 2012. Despite some efforts, Canada failed to meet these requirements and in fact increased total emissions by roughly 24% by the year 2008. Canada formally withdrew from the Kyoto Accord in 2011, avoiding
Though the industrial revolution brought many gifts, it came with grave consequences. The first is that fossil fuels, the primary source of fuel for most machinery, produce large amounts of Co2, which is pumped into the atmosphere. Co2 is harmful both to the human body and the ecosystem; Co2 depletes the ozone layer, which contributes to global/ocean warming and glacial melting. A lot of people do not fully understand the immanent threat this poses to the earth, this is because it is commonly misunderstood or the information is out of date.
Throughout the 1800s, the Industrial Revolution shifted Europe exponentially from a basic, morbid society, to become highly intricate and economically prosperous. Urbanization spread throughout Europe making unsafe working areas and conditions no longer a problem for the average worker due to government 's safety laws. By increasing the low wages, it allowed the men of Europe to fully support their families, eliminating children and women from working in the factories. These changes during the industrial era created a positive attitude for the European working class, who sought to move up into the middle class. Politics was also influenced during this beneficial time period. Democracy was being spread and implemented by countries
The period of time between the late 1800s and the early 1900s was a time of rapid industrialization in the United States. The great American author, Mark Twain, dubbed this period the “Gilded” Age. Gilded items are covered thinly with gold leaf or gold paint, which hides all that is inside. This idea is evident in this time period because America’s golden paint, or industrialization, was hiding all the economic and social problems on the inside. Although the Gilded Age brought along great advances in industrialization, it brought many new problems that were never experienced before. The politics of this time period came up short when it came to dealing with the economic and social issues it faced.
In 1997, The Kyoto Protocol was adopted to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (EPA, n.d.). In spite of the international treaty, half of participating nations, including Canada failed to reducing its Co2 emissions (Clark, D., 2012, November 26).
“The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty which extends the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits State Parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, based on the premise that (a)
The Industrial Revolution could possibly be the most important event in the history of our world. Before it, people worked mostly on farms or sold things through the market that were hand crafted. This revolution brought about great change in the ways that we produce goods and the economies of the world. While some might argue that Industrialization had primarily negative consequences for society because of the rough working and living conditions, it was actually a positive thing for society. Industrialization’s positive effects were an increased standard of living, better means of travel, and more developed countries with better economies.
The United States heavy demand of fossil fuels for transportation is causing extreme confliction and competitiveness with many other countries. Japan became so concerned with these issues that they devised a plan that could bring countries together to compromise this extremely difficult issue. The Kyoto Protocol is a negotiation put together by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The treaty was compromised in Kyoto, Japan in 1997. Countries that formally approve this protocol devote to decrease the amount of released greenhouse gases, or trade the number of emissions allowed from sustaining or raising the emissions of greenhouse gases. The United States of America was not among these countries that signed the
The Industrial Revolution has been one of the social historical event that transformed the way of economic thinking of humanity towards improving living conditions, was also ironically factor at the same time triggered that slowly and gradually they last the resources the planet provides us for our subsistence, unable to even provide a viable response that allows the renewal of such resources. The critical point is that they have not been enough isolated attempts that have been built in an economically globalized world where environmental and social problems are secondary plane.
