- Briefly describe the purpose and advantages of the combination.
irst intergovernmental action against the impacts of climate change was initiated during the Earth Summit 1992. It was agreed on a stabilisation of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations before irreparable changes were to occur (BBC 2013). Since then many more intergovernmental meetings, protocols and agreements took place, many with unclear outcomes. Climate change still has not arrived in the public ́s daily discussion. If one takes a look at the United States of America, according to a survey undertaken by the Yale University only 40% of the citizens believe climate change will harm them personally in the future (Marlon et al. 2016). This problem of civil unawareness is not solely an American one but can be applied globally and is the reason why much more attention must be drawn to climate change – it presently already affects everyone, however, not many people choose to pay attention let alone act on it because it is not clarified enough what the direct and concrete consequences of this drastic change are (Sampei 2009). The aim of this essay is to elaborate on the way global climate change expresses itself now and how it will most likely develop in the future. Furthermore, the essay will present possible surveillance methods of these expressions based on an environmental management approach; They deliver the necessary data to reveal any cause-effect relation to politics and especially to the public. They are the basis for appropriate reaction in the area of environmental policies. Causes of climate change Climate change is a term encompassing a broad variety of natural happenings. It is pre- eminently caused by the humanly enhanced greenhouse effect, which acts like a blanket around the earth. This “blanket” keeps more than the usual amount of the sun’s radiation inside the atmosphere (Reynolds et al. 2010). Normally, around 70% of the sunlight reaching the earth passes through our atmosphere>GET ANSWER
