Climate Change

We are on a struggle. Struggle to survive and to prosper. And one of the greatest struggles the human race has ever faced is that, which concerns our only one planet where we live – the fight against climate change. Most scientists regard anthropogenic (human-caused) global climate change to be the most important environmental issue of our times. evidences gathered by the scientists around the world suggest that global climate is already changing as a result of human actions. They found out that in the past century, precipitation has increased by about 1 percent over the world’s continents. High altitudes are expected to see more rainfall, while in some tropical areas precipitation has actually declined. Apparently, warmer temperatures are causing more water evaporation. We are expecting this to produce more severe rainstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons and even floods. In 2003 at least 30, 000 people died in Europe’s hottest summer since 1540. Climate models given by the scientists show those temperature extremes like this will become increasingly common by the end of this century if greenhouse gas emissions aren’t reduced. Over the past 200 years, atmospheric concentrations of CO2, CH4, and N2O have increased by over 31 percent. Carbon dioxide is the most important cause of anthropogenic climate change. Burning fossil fuels, making cement, clearing forests and other human activities release nearly 30 billion tons of CO2 every year containing 8 billion tons of carbon. About 3 billion tons of this excess carbon is taken up by terrestrial ecosystems, and around 2 billion tons are being absorbed by the oceans thus leaving an annual atmospheric increase of some 3 billion tons of carbon per year. In Metro Manila alone, excessive carbon emissions are virtually evident. On day time, try to stand in at least 5th floor building; you’ll have some view of how unclear the atmosphere is, and how dusty the air you breathe is. On nighttime, try to look at the velvety sky, and the stars you can see are already limited. You can not anymore see those which must appear smaller unlike when you view it in the rural areas which has better atmospheric conditions. If current trends continue, climatologists warn that by year 2100, mean global temperatures will probably warm between 1.50 C and 60C (2.70 and 110 F).

Global Climate Change

Global climate change is already affecting a wide variety of biological species. Many wild plant and animal species are being forced out of their current ranges as the climate warms. Likewise, coral reefs are bleaching because of higher water temperatures. British scientists warned that by 2050, even the lowest estimates of potential climate change suggest that 1 million species could be driven into extinction. If migration to more suitable habitat is blocked through fragmentation, more than half of all tropical species might be eliminated.

Satellite images show that the Arctic sea ice is 40 percent thinner now and the Antarctic Ice Sheet has shrunk 25 percent over the past 25 years, including some of the giant icebergs. Alpine glaciers everywhere are retreating rapidly. Over the next 50 years, at least half of all alpine glaciers in the world could disappear. Without these glaciers, agriculture, industry, power generation and drinking water supplies will suffer. In the past century, sea level has risen approximately 15-20 cm (6-8 in) worldwide. About one-quarter of this increase is caused by the melting of alpine glaciers and half is due to thermal expansion of ocean water.

Do we have something to do to alleviate this problem considering that we are too small? One song says, “tuldok ka lang sa mundo”. But no matter how tiny as a dot we are, we can scribe a difference, we can touch the world.

Recognizing the need to address climate change, and anticipating its effects on people’s life, we as educators need to make substantial contributions to the alleviation of environmental problems by making the students environmentally literate and responsible as regards causes and effects of global warming and climate change.

To be effective, the infusion of environmental education concepts in any subjects, so to speak, requires strategies and learning experiences that are planned, focused, experiential, participatory, anticipatory, and cumulative.

Environmental Education

How can we motivate students to take concrete steps on how to stop climate change towards promoting sustainable action? Even if there is a commitment to provide environmental education in general and biology in particular as a saving grace, the question remains; how should ecological concepts in biology be taught to students? Biological sciences offer excellent opportunities to teach ecological concepts. Similarly, environmental issues with direct biological implications could be logically dealt with, like global warming, climate change, endangered species, population control and others. Environmental Education (EE) is seen to be the development of understanding about our environment; positive attitudes towards the earth and its life; and confidence and skills to make positive changes. However, a key determinant of student achievement is the quality of teaching. To be effective, infusion of environmental education concepts in any subjects so to speak, requires strategies and learning experiences that are planned, focused, experiential, participatory, anticipatory, and cumulative. All students must have access to learning about the environment. The knowledge and concepts base must include the students’ ability to demonstrate an understanding of the ecological processes that support life on our planet, man’s interaction with the ecological processes and an understanding of the effects and the likely implications of change. Likewise, the students should be taught how to recognize the causes and effects of environmental issues make responsible decisions about the environment and take personal action to ensure an ecologically sustainable future and to take collective action to ensure an ecologically sustainable future.

Biological sciences offer excellent opportunity to teach ecological concepts. Since only few students are taking course in ecology, the general biology courses become a practicable choice for teaching basic ecological principles. Correspondingly, environmental issues with direct biological implications could be logically dealt with like endangered species, population control, global warming, climate change, waste disposal and others. Specific laboratory strategies could also be taught which have direct application to environmental concerns like in testing for biological oxygen demand, testing for nitrates and other nutrients in water resources.

 Participatory learning is a group-learning approach where the students are allowed to take an active part in the learning process in which they have a maximum measure of freedom and self-determination.
Participatory learning is a group-learning approach where the students are allowed to take an active part in the learning process in which they have a maximum measure of freedom and self-determination.

Participatory Learning Strategy

Students learn best by being interested fully in their own work, by seeing themselves, doing themselves, by puzzling themselves, and by making experiments. (Elsgest, 1987) This new pedagogic concept should be participatory, that is, students should be allowed to work towards liberation from all forms of repression, inside and outside of classroom, through social interaction, togetherness, and action-oriented communication. This approach should be anticipatory – it should help students achieve a creative approach to future problems of mankind, climate change in particular. (Bayer, et al (1980),)

Participatory learning is a group learning approach where the students are allowed to take an active part in the learning process in which they have a maximum measure of freedom and self-determination. The students are allowed to attend personal meetings, enjoy interactions and have acquaintances among them, and between others and teachers, and times and space for turning the acquaintances with people and things into experiences.

Participatory learning strategy has its place in the Group Investigation Models of Learning. It is the instructional utilization of small groups of 3 – 8 members in which learners are allowed to work together to accomplish a common goal and to maximize their own and each other’s learning (Johnson and Johnson, 1994, 1999; Ajitoni, 2005). Participatory learning strategy as a philosophy of learning has its theoretical or speculative basis in the behaviorists; the cognitive theorist, the constructivist, and the social leaning theorists’ views of learning.

According to Kohle (1982) participatory learning strategy provides more than enough chances for four stages of adult learning: concrete experience, followed by reflection on that experience on a personal basis; next comes abstract conceptualization which is the derivation of general rules describing the experience, or the application of known theories to it, and therefore to active experimentation, the construction of ways of modifying the next occurrence of the experience leading in turn to the next concrete experience.

Grouping and Group Size

The improvement of developed, participatory, experiential active and creative learning is binded with three environmental conditions, which should be satisfied in the classroom. These are: (a) a maximum measure of freedom and self-determination, (b.) time and peace for turning the acquaintance with people and things into experiences, and (c) the chance of personal meetings among the students and between students and teachers. Grouping of students emphasizes active participation on the part of learners. Participation in small group discussion may help some students learn and remember (Muyanda – Mutebi and Yiga-Matovu, 1993). Williamson (1990) observed that group activity fosters personal involvement, encourages cooperation and sensitivity among the participants, and may help to clarify knowledge and values. In addition, there is a growth in students’ cognitive outcomes freedom for the students to learn, a freeing of teachers’ time to assist weaker students, and improved social and ethnic relations. Groups provide a vehicle whereby learners can seek to influence decisions which affect them directly. In grouping, each individual has a unique and important role to play. In the dynamics of group learning, Thelen (1984) suggested about 10 to 15 students. The argument is that the number is large enough for diversity of reactions and small enough for individual participation. If the group is too large, it will be difficult to provide an opportunity for every student to participate during each class and will not enable the group to relate productively. If the group is too small in size, the diversity in the group will not provide sufficient ways of viewing a situation and will not contain enough potential among its members for finding the right solution.

Previous studies done by educational researchers, academicians and educators suggest that encouraging participation in environmental activities is a promising technique for improving students’ environmental knowledge, particularly on the issues on climate change and global warming.

      One must know the consequences of the modernization. Moreover pupils must learn how to be responsible accountants and managers of the environment.

      Global warming is the challenge of our times. It is important not as an isolated, ambiguous theory or political wedge issue but how the reality of global warming impacts nearly every aspect of humanity and life on Earth. Whether it be the economy, sustainable development, politics or realizing our place in the web of life that sustains us, understanding global warming is central in meeting the challenge and opportunities of the 21st century.

      Infusing Climate Change Issues in Biological Science will be of great help for students as it would serve as a go-to resource for news, commentary and education on all aspects of global warming. From first-hand reporting and thoughtful commentary to the latest in climate science and solutions, it touches on a range of issues including climate change, managing population growth, alternative energy, battling the politics of denial, and more. Awareness is the first step in facing the challenge of global warming. Within that challenge is an opportunity to build a better world for ourselves and for the generations that follow.

      It is very delightful to think that it would increase all of our understanding on climate change, the science, politics and economic factors that shape our future. With awareness of the interconnected issues of energy, climate and sustainability we can be an active part of the solution of global warming.

      Learning how we can reduce our personal carbon footprint and money saving process, learning about climate policy, renewable energy, getting the facts on climate change and learning about the solutions are some of the lessons that we could derive from it.

      Climate Change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time.

      Knowledge about Climate Change should be given by the teacher to their students so that they will be aware on their environment, about the things going on, about the issues or problems. As an accountancy student we should know how to solve problems we should always come up with solutions everytimes we face problems.

      Climate Change is a problem that we are all facing this days. It is where the temperature changes to like extreme heat which cause to melt the ice on the polar regions which is also the cause why the water levels are rising due to the melting ice. That is why we must be all aware of the current situation and we must take or have a role to save planet Earth for the next generation of people and their lives.

      Awareness of Climate Change and Global Warming is the first step in defeating the world-wide dilemma. Global Climate Change is man-made and as they say, two wrongs doesn't make a right therefore we should be the one who should stop and solve this mess. What better way to open man's eyes than to show it to an innocent soul? Starting young, especially to students, is a great way of educating the future leaders of our nation to love our own home. This way we can prevent history from repeating itself and have an edge against what we have inflicted. However we should not put the responsibilities to the youths and make them carry the burdens because everyone can act against the global predicament. It is a battle of mankind against itself and everyone must participate in order for us to claim the victory, not just for mankind but also for Mother Earth.

      Climate change is one of biggest problem we are facing. It is the changing of climate which can melt the glaciers in pole regions and cause of rising of temperature in different parts of the world. And when this happened, it can we will encounter more problems. But always keep in mind that it is not too late to make a change. We must do something to stop this. The future is in our hand.

      The devastating impacts of climate change are clear. Our world is warmer than ever before, and people and wildlife are already suffering the consequences.It’s time to stop the destruction. We must not only slow the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere but we must reduce it.That means that even making small changes in what we do, or how we do it, can help prevent the climate change. we can make difference, we just need to start changes.

      Climate change is indeed a serious matter that threatens our mother earth. We must show our deep concern to the planet we are living to, for we are the instruments of God in order to protect this planet. Climate change affects the life of all organisms that why most of us struggle. The species in different part of this world also face challenges just to survive and continue to live. One of the major contributor of climate change is human activities. So we must see within ourselves the value of this planet and not just to try but take action in reviving our planet because she is already in the state wherein she take the burdens and difficulties caused by humans. This is relevant to my course, accountancy, because it enlighten our minds that in every action that we are doing there is an effect. Accountants even though their speciality is more on making financial statements of course they need to be one of the contributors of making this world a good one. There will be a big difference in small contributions, so every one is held liable in making this planet a healthful and a better place to live in.

      Climate Change is really an alarming issue not only for the scientists but also to everyone. There is a big difference from the year before to year from now. If human still continue their acts to pursue Climate Change, what will happen to the children of the next generation? How are they going to explore the wonders of nature? How are they enjoy the LIFE? As a human, a steward of nature, we should be aware to all changes we are facing at. We should have our main ways to prevent Climate Change. As one of the heroes of this generation, I want to raise awareness not only to Filipinos but also the people of the world to take care of the Earth. Because this is the only way for us to thank God Almighty to this wonderful blessing that He gave to us. And that is the relevance of this study to me.

      Having aware that there is an alarming issue about our environment, thousands of ways has been formulated to solve this problem. And one of those is environmental education which is a very important one. To be able to act on the problem you must first know what the nature of the said problem is, what causes it and what are its possible effects. And by knowing that, you can now take action because of the knowledge acquired you can figure out what are we doing wrong that must be stopped to be able to deal with this issue. Taking science subjects had greatly helped in informing the people so that they themselves can formulate different solutions. Who knows one of those could be the key to this issue we are facing and as a result ensure a great future for the next generations to come. Truly, the future of the next generations depends on us.

It threatens our health, communities, economy, and national security. We biology students must become aware of this in order for us to do our part in helping to save the earth. If we don’t take action, we shall face the consequences in the near future. One day, we’ll realize that there’s no way for us to repair the damage, not unless we start now.

This results to the rising temperature in the planet earth thats why many fields are get dried, ice bergs are melting resulting to the increase of water level all over the world. This climate change is so alarming because of abnormal weather condition. For us to do things that can help us with this problem, we need to understand what the climate change is and what we need to avoid. Let's work together to solve this problem.

      Is one of the biggest problem of this generation Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. An overwhelming scientific consensus maintains that climate change is due primarily to the human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. because it affects every person living on the planet. The hole of the ozone layer become bigger, because of the pollution that a man created. And the temperature is become higher than usual. . It is very alarming so we should address the issues concerning to this problem. If we don't act now maybe in the future there will be no clean air,water and land that can be seen on earth. All have been destroyed and polluted. So we should educate the people, teach those little children to take care of mother earth and be well mannered.

      Climate change is a serious reason for concern, because it affects every person living on the planet. Even though climate change is partially caused by the natural cycles of Earth, humans are still a major part of it. Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, absorb and emit heat in the atmosphere, keeping Earth warm enough to support life. In the future, climate change will affect people worldwide. There will be increased in health risks. Rising temperatures will cause longer and more common heat waves, which result in more heat-related injuries and deaths.

      A change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.a long-term change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in the average weather conditions or a change in the distribution of weather events with respect to an average, for example, greater or fewer extreme weather events. Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth.

      Climate Change is the change of weather with the result of imbalance weather condition. Climate change greatly affects human life and mostly the environment and the ecosystem. Too much CO2 in the atmosphere traps a large amount of heat coming from the sun instead of being bounce back in the outer space. This carbon dioxide is produce by human activities which damage our environment. It greatly affects crops and even the life of animals from poles. Heat result may forest fire and flood in the near future. As we all know ice from north and south pole is melting due from heat and if that happens, countries may submerge. We can't back the damage done but we can stop it. And the simplest way to do so is by planting trees and discipline ourselves when it comes to garbages it must be keep properly.

      Climate change, the term is used to refer specifically caused by human activity, as opposed to changes in climate change that may have resulted as part of Earth's natural processes. As years passed, out of concern, we didn’t notice that our environment suffers from our wrong acts. Climates have changed considerably during the earths history. We keep on hearing same teachings and reminders but we never tend to learn how to do it properly. We should be responsible for taking care of our environment.

      One of the biggest problems that our planet Earth facing is the climate change. Climate change is the changes in the earth's weather, including changes in temperature, wind patterns and rainfall, especially the increase in the temperature of the earth's atmosphere that is caused by the increase of particular gases, especially carbon dioxide. We should not let ourselves to just sit and watch how climate change destroy our beloved Earth, let's get informed and involved. There are so many ways to stop climate change. One way is can be done by everyone — be energy efficient. Turn off all the appliances when not in use. Another way is let us make our life greener, plant trees instead of cutting it. This planet Earth was given to us by our Lord God to take good care, not to destroy it. Everyone can help on how to prevent and stop climate change so everyone must do their responsibilities. As a student, it is very important to be informed about this because at this very young age there are already so many ways that I can do to help.

Half the problem for us as individuals, however, is the knowing where to start.To help you get to grips with climate change, we've identified several key areas we should all be addressing in our day to day lives to help you get started. We hope you'll find that becoming more environmentally friendly isn't as difficult as you might think!

      Our environment is constantly changing. There is no denying that. However, as our environment changes, so does the need to become increasingly aware of the problems that surround it. With a massive influx of natural disasters, warming and cooling periods, different types of weather patterns and much more, people need to be aware of what types of environmental problems our planet is facing.

      Global warming has become an undisputed fact about our current livelihoods; our planet is warming up and we are definitely part of the problem. However, this isn’t the only environmental problem that we should be concerned about. All across the world, people are facing a wealth of new and challenging environmental problems every day. Some of them are small and only affect a few ecosystems, but others are drastically changing the landscape of what we already know. We need to be aware of what we are doing, buying, using, and what it does to the environment. We need to save and protect our environment.

      “I find it very sad that by the time corporate science realizes the value of nature, that it may be too late”

      ― Steven Magee, Solar Radiation, Global Warming and Human Disease

      I agree on what he said. Regrets are always at the end. That's why I am afraid that when the time comes the we are on the brink of losing the earth. Of losing our everything. That's the only time that we will be able to feel the importance of it. When it's already too late. When It's already late for us to change everything. To change our ways that are harming the environment. That's why, now, while it is still not too late, let's save the earth with every possible way we know. For us to not have any regrets in the end.

" It is asking for us to take action for us to survive and for the next generation. We should do something and have an action for us to survive on this crisis. As a CPA i should have a knowledge about the effect of what my company doing because sometimes it can harm others or something like our beautiful environment.

      "Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientist, but it's all our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it." -Mike Huckabee. Climate change is not about knowing it and being aware of it. It's all about words taken into actions and promises taken into reality. No wonder that anytime climate may change, severe storms may destroy our houses and may get the lives of thousands of people. No wonder anytime animals may die because of changing climate that may harm their health. All these things are happening but it seems like very few are the ones who care. We should not be blinded to the things we need to do as humans because we have our minds to think unlike other organisms. This issue is very alarming so we should not ignore it. Make possible actions, inspire others, do your part, and together we can overcome this what we call "Climate Change"

      Climate change is already occurring worldwide and because of this we are already experiencing it like the too much warming or rising temperature in some areas, hurricanes and some other natural disasters that are more strong and unpredictable weather, air pollution cause by the too much consumption of carbon emisssion and water pollution by throwing garbages on the lake or other bodies of water. This are only some of the effects that that are now visible for us but this is just the beginning and the worse part is the ending that is all the result of our wrong doings in nature.

      Being a student we must be responsible to take care where we live now. This is for the future generation that will inherited it. As accountancy student they might ask why we should study this? For example the company we own is the earth we live now, as owner we do a lot of things to make the company last for a long period of time, because we want that our future kids will manage it and for them to have a better life. If we treat the earth as our own company we may not suffer on climate change. The way how we think about how the company will last long time is the way we should we think for our earth. We can help the earth last for long time by a simple taking care of it. For example adopt energy saving habits. Make it a habit to turn off the lights as you leave a room. Also, replace standard light bulbs with energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. Turn off the computer and unplug electronics when they are not in use. By this way we not only save money for paying electrical bills but we help also the earth. We can also Walk or bike whenever possible. Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint, but your overall level of health will improve and you will save money on parking and gasoline.

      Our world today is now experiencing a phenomenon called climate change. Climate change is a phenomenon where the earth's atmosphere's average temperature is increasing (especially a sustained increase that causes climatic changes). This phenomenon is affecting us in many ways such as experiencing much stronger hurricanes and severe heat waves, and this is very threatening to all of us. Abnormality that is happening today on our world's climate is getting worse. We, humans, must do our responsibilities as stewards of our nature.

      It is very important to have knowledge about climate change because we will be aware of what's truly happening in our world, and we will know what are the disadvantages of this phenomenon to all of us, and we can have ides how to remove it gradually in our nature. As a human and as an accountancy student, studying about climate change will make me more accountable in everything I do and it will help me to be vigilant in improving some things so they will be in their proper conditions.

      Climate change is unequivocal, almost certainly is caused mostly by human activities, is already causing significant harm, and as it continues, holds great risks for our future. Addressing the risks of climate change requires global action to reduce greenhouse gases as well as to reduce vulnerabilities to climate change impacts.

      Climate change and its impacts on people and resources will results to serious challenges. The actions we take today will influence the path of future greenhouse gas emissions and the magnitude of warming. They will also affect our ability to respond and adapt to changes, and to reduce vulnerability of people and places to possible harm. Educating future generations about the causes and effects of global climate change is necessary because implementing solutions depends on an informed public.

      Global climate change will affect people and the environment in many ways. Some of these impacts, like stronger hurricanes and severe heat waves, could be life threatening. Others, like spreading weeds, will be less serious. And some effects, like longer growing seasons for crops, might even be good! However, as the Earth keeps getting warmer, the negative effects are expected to outweigh the positive ones.

      The more we learn about how climate change will affect people and the environment, the more we can see why people need to take action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change. We can also take steps to prepare for the changes we know are coming.

      Change is inevitable and is one of the permanent existing things on Earth. Although “Climate Change” is a natural change that is bound to happen one day, it should be a gradual and steady in order for adaptation to occur. Due to our actions, the supposed to be steady and slow natural process is hurried to the extent that adaptation can’t occur.

      I must agree with an “Environmental Education Approach” to be included in our education. Teaching the terms to be memorized holds no significance compared to applying them. Our brain has its certain limit that can only take up to a number of information per day thus burying some with new knowledge. If a student knows the deeper meaning before such terms, then he/she would be able to take it into heart. As a result, would be easier to exercise it on a daily basis.

      Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. An overwhelming scientific consensus maintains that climate change is due primarily to the human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. The gases trap heat within the atmosphere, which can have a range of effects on ecosystems, including rising sea levels, severe weather events, and droughts that render landscapes more susceptible to wildfires. Do something today to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the key to solving global climate change. A major way these gases get into the atmosphere is when people burn coal, oil, and natural gas for energy. Everyone uses energy, and everyone can be part of the solution.

      Global warming causes thermal expansion of land and water. It also causes ice sheets to melt in icy regions of the world and mountain tops.

      Large volumes of melted ice (water) then flows down into streams, rivers, lakes and seas. The result is rising sea and water levels, causing floods and massive destruction to low-lying towns and cities along water bodies. Extreme changes in temperature makes people suffer breathing difficulties, head aches, body rashes and other illnesses. There are many ways that you can make a difference, such as driving less, insulating your house better, changing your voting priorities, buying organic food, eating less meat, buying fuel efficient appliances and vehicles.

      Climate change is happening now. Evidences being seen support the fact that the change cannot simply be explained by natural variation. A change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. It most likely to be due to human activities; and thus, is due to the observed increase in greenhouse gas concentrations from human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels and land use change. Current warming has increasingly posed quite considerable challenges to man and the environment, and will continue to do so in the future. Climate change has the potential to drastically impact the future of the human race. The changes in climate can affect how people, plants and animal live. In order to save the environment we need to be aware of what we are doing, buying, using, and what it does to the environment. Saving energy reduces air pollution and greenhouse gases.

The primary cause of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, which emits greenhouse gases into the atmosphere—primarily carbon dioxide. Other human activities, such as agriculture and deforestation, also contribute to the proliferation of greenhouse gases that cause climate change. Rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps (again, caused by climate change) contribute to greater storm damage; warming ocean temperatures are associated with stronger and more frequent storms; additional rainfall, particularly during severe weather events, leads to flooding and other damage; an increase in the incidence and severity of wildfires threatens habitats, homes, and lives; and heat waves contribute to human deaths and other consequences. Environmental education is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.c The components of environmental educational are: Awareness and sensitivity, Knowledge and understanding, Attitudes, Skills , and Participation . Environmental education does not advocate a particular viewpoint or course of action. Rather, environmental education teaches individuals how to weigh various sides of an issue through critical thinking and it enhances their own problem-solving and decision-making skills.

      Flooding and storms show us just how much weather and climate can affect our lives. Understanding and predicting what the coming winter might bring, or predicting how climate will change over the next century is of vital importance - both for our economy and for society. Climate can be thought of as the average or typical weather conditions we experience. Scientists know that climate varies naturally on many timescales and they know that people are affecting climate - particularly through emissions of greenhouse gases. The natural factors have no solutions, but we can control the effects of humans on the environment. The government can take necessary actions such as giving vehicle licenses very few, in a house only one vehicle etc. Also pollution, by controlling all types of pollution the amount of CO2 such green house gases reduce in the atmosphere thus global warming also reduced. The afforestation of plants and developing forestry can give a positive effects. Because it reduces the amount of CO2. Limit the use of refrigerators and ACS in houses. Also practice sustainable development in all types of industries.

      This article is really a big help for us to know what the effects and causes of Climate Change and in order for us to know what to do to prevent climate change.

Climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them. But the climate we’ve come to expect is not what it used to be, because the past is no longer a reliable predictor of the future. Our climate is rapidly changing with disruptive impacts, and that change is progressing faster than any seen in the last 2,000 years.

      “Even if climate change isn’t real (but we know it is), aren’t the benefits of cleaner air, water and land worth all the effort put towards cleaner energy, reduced resource use and all general “green” practices?” I can’t remember where I first heard this, or the exact quote, but it makes one think. As much as this concern is about nature and ecology, it also has direct and indirect consequences on human health, as well. In summary, the above links break down into direct and indirect consequences of climate change, including diseases (malaria and cholera), extreme weather events (storms and heat waves), pollution of air and water (ground level ozone), and food security.

      The climate is changing. The earth is warming up, and there is now overwhelming scientific consensus that it is happening, and human-induced. With global warming on the increase and species and their habitats on the decrease, chances for ecosystems to adapt naturally are diminishing. Do you still remember the Carbon Footprint? A carbon footprint is defined as: The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). We should reduce the size of our carbon footprint by decreasing the usage of our gadgets because it produces energy that can increase the size of our carbon footprint. We should do something before it’s too late because we are the one who will face the consequences. The heat that enters into the Earth system comes from the Sun. Sunlight travels through space and our atmosphere, heating up the land surface and the oceans. The warmed Earth then releases heat back into the atmosphere. However, the amount of sunlight let into the system is not always the same. Changes in Earth’s orbit over thousands of years and changes in the Sun’s intensity affect the amount of solar energy that reaches the Earth. Climate has a big effect on the food we eat, the energy we use, homes we live in, work we do (and how we travel to work), our culture and heritage and the way we spend our spare time. It can even affect our health, from sunburn to allergies to respiratory illnesses.

      It is really true, we humans continue wrecking and ruining our surroundings. As someone who knows how to help prevent this crisis, it is nice to have and share ideas regarding our environment. Environmental education won't hurt, actually it is a big help for everyone. It allows everyone to have better knowledge about what's happening with our environment, with the world. Climate is an angry beast and we are poking at it with sticks. We are the cause, we are what we do with our environment. "If we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us." It's our choice.

      Madeleine C. Merced BSA 1-2 Climate change is a very big problem that we are all facing now. We, students, have to do something in order to avoid it and protect our Earth. What I can suggest is that we must be energy efficient. We can change light bulbs to compact fluorescent or LEDs. Unplug computers, TVs and other electronics when not in use.

      In addition, air travel leaves behind a huge carbon footprint. Before we book our next airline ticket, consider greener options such as buses or trains, or try vacationing closer to home. We can also stay in touch with people by videoconferencing, which saves time as well as travel and accommodation costs. Another one is that we have to get involve by reminding other people that reducing greenhouse gas emissions will also build healthier communities, spur economic innovation and create new jobs.

That are just way we can do to help solve the issue. .Climate has far reaching impacts on biological systems. Survival and reproduction depend on how well adapted individuals are to local climate patterns. Climate change can disrupt the match between organisms and their local environment, reducing survival and reproduction and causing subsequent impacts on populations or species’ distributions across geographic regions. Climate change may benefit some species and cause extinction for others. Cumulatively, it will alter biological communities and the functioning of ecosystems.

      Climate change is a terrible problem, and it absolutely needs to be solved. It deserves to be a huge priority.

      -Bill Gates

      Global economic crisis has underscored the need for approaches to education that equip and empower people of all ages to deal with uncertain environmental, economic and political futures.The rapidly increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases may lead to significant changes in regional and seasonal climate patterns.

      Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions.

Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as "global warming".

      Public awareness of global climate change is extraordinarily high. From schoolchildren to senior citizens, from farms to factories to Wall Street, the phrase "greenhouse effect" now occupies a prominent place in the vocabulary of everyday life. In a world of so many issues and concerns, how is it that global climate change has been able to capture our attention? Why are you interested in the topic?

      This problem strikes home for so many people for one simple reason: global climate change has potential consequences for the Earth's living systems (biota). All life on Earth, whether plant or animal, is inexorably linked to the surrounding chemical and physical climate. It is obvious to most people that organisms tolerate certain ranges of temperature, have certain requirements for moisture and nutrients, and respond to the chemical composition of the surrounding air or water. The rate, as well as the magnitude, of global environmental changes could potentially challenge the capability of organisms to adapt. We have a vested interest in this topic because we are members of the biological community ourselves, and because we are dependent on other living systems. It's not surprising that our interest in climate change is intense and that it spans many levels: scientific, economic, social, political, and even emotional.Climate has far reaching impacts on biological systems. Survival and reproduction depend on how well adapted individuals are to local climate patterns. Climate change can disrupt the match between organisms and their local environment, reducing survival and reproduction and causing subsequent impacts on populations or species’ distributions across geographic regions. Climate change may benefit some species and cause extinction for others. Cumulatively, it will alter biological communities and the functioning of ecosystems. The Earth is already experiencing sufficient climate change to affect biological systems; well‐documented changes in plant and animal populations are related to recent climate change. Predicting future biological impacts of climate change remains a formidable challenge for science.

      Climate Change, Global Warming and such are issues we definitely CANNOT ignore. We only have one world, Earth, but it becomes something difficult to protect because our enemy is not nature but our fellow human beings. As it states above that a song says that each of us are but periods in the world but putting together those periods or dots can make a difference. On the bad side, for example, one has this programmed in his mind: "It's fine if I just throw this candy wrapper anywhere. It's small. Who cares if garbages increased by one small wrapper!". But, what if there are over a million people with that mindset? That will create a million of candy wrapper garbage. Now, that does say something. Meaning, we cannot have even just one person have that kind of mindset. On the good side, if there are people who care for the environment and we put them all together, that also makes a big difference! Also, let say, for example that one person cuts a tree and plants one to replace it. Will that be enough? Equal exchange? Of course not! How can you even call that equal? If it rained really hard, that one small replacement is sure to die. And even if it doesn't die, just how many years will it take to grow to be like the old tree that was cut? Our teacher in high school told us before that you have to plant 10, or more and no less than that. Lots of people care more about the money than they care about the environment. They don't really care what happens to it as long as they got the greens (money). That is something that must not be tolerated. As future professionals, we may encounter clients who couldn't careless about the environment. We must not let them have their way. We must take a stand to protect the Earth. It is our home. It has protected us even long before we are born. We must do our jobs as God's stewards.

      Climate change is really ruining our mother earth. It affects our nature extremely. It detoriating our world and making it such a big mess. It is a serious problem that really needs to solve in a quick. Environtal education must be involved in each of every individual. It needs to be applied and execute. In every kid needs to teach how to take care of their surroundings to plant trees or either throw their garbages in the proper trash cans. Climate includes patterns of temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and seasons. "Climate change" affects more than just a change in the weather, it refers to seasonal changes over a long period of time. These climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them.

      Because so many systems are tied to climate, a change in climate can affect many related aspects of where and how people, plants and animals live, such as food production, availability and use of water, and health risks.

      For example, a change in the usual timing of rains or temperatures can affect when plants bloom and set fruit, when insects hatch or when streams are their fullest. This can affect historically synchronized pollination of crops, food for migrating birds, spawning of fish, water supplies for drinking and irrigation, forest health, and more.

      Some short-term climate variation is normal, but longer-term trends now indicate a changing climate. A year or two of an extreme change in temperature or other condition doesn’t mean a climate change trend has been "erased.”

      Worldwide, people are paying serious attention to climate change. Climate change is really destroying our environment, economy and communities. We can help slow it down, but we must take action now.

      Nowadays climate change is the biggest problem of the human being. It is already happening and represents one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats facing the planet. The climate can affect every person and our health directly through increases in temperature. Particular segments of the population such as those with heart problems, asthma, the elderly, and the very young can be especially vulnerable to extreme heat. The climate is a very important thing and if we don’t stop the changes soon, more and more plants and trees are going to die, we won’t have enough food and then not only will the third world countries suffer from hunger but so will the whole world. I think it is better to first stop the changes in climate and then gradually reduce the hunger in the poor countries. Because if we stop the changes, we are going to be healthier and everything around us will be cleaner and it will be how it actually should be. I believe harmony between nature and human beings will return.

Sequester more carbon by letting plants do their thing. Sequester carbon through capture and storage. Sequester carbon by fertilizing the ocean. Geoengineer to keep out some of that dang sunlight.

And one of the greatest struggles the human race has ever faced is that, which concerns our only one planet where we live – the fight against climate change. The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it's all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it. How is it that, in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence, there are still some who would deny the dangers of climate change? Not surprisingly, the loudest voices are not scientific, and it is remarkable how many economists, lawyers, journalists and politicians set themselves up as experts on the science. One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won't jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing. Yes, we can't do anything alone.

      Change is inevitable and is one of the permanent existing things on Earth. Although “Climate Change” is a natural change that is bound to happen one day, it should be a gradual and steady in order for adaptation to occur. Due to our actions, the supposed to be steady and slow natural process is hurried to the extent that adaptation can’t occur.

      I must agree with an “Environmental Education Approach” to be included in our education. Teaching the terms to be memorized holds no significance compared to applying them. Our brain has its certain limit that can only take up to a number of information per day thus burying some with new knowledge. If a student knows the deeper meaning before such terms, then he/she would be able to take it into heart. As a result, would be easier to exercise it on a daily basis.

      Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events).More recent data are provided by the instrumental record. General circulation models, based on the physical sciences, are often used in theoretical approaches to match past climate data, make future projections, and link causes and effects in climate change.
