    What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    opinion>>

    To regulate the amount of gas and waste that pollute efficiently, I think the active participation of government is vital and essential. Not because that companies or individuals can’t do to protect environment, but because government can make the change in both of them, I insist that government should be the one to be eager for preserving environment, our planet and living things. There are big three things that they have to be working on for both of our human life and non-human’s life.
    First, set up many beneficial activities/system that guarantee protecting environment. For instance, there is recycling. In the 21st century, some countries are promoting and stimulating people to recycle and divide trash and waste with certain criteria. By public people’s little participation on distinguishing normal trash, plastic/glass, and so on, it became easy for recycling companies to reuse and save resources. Nowadays there are more systems like, collecting alcohol bottles, thrown but reusable document papers, to name some. Due to the fact that government can’t employee millions of cleaner, it is quite important for making normal citizen volunteer for collecting wastes that are thrown in modern life. By activating those systems and activities in department of Environment, I think it is sure to be one of the beneficial solutions to both people who want to earn money without any other ability and nature that had a hard time enduring the pollution of the wastes in road, parks and surroundings.
    Second, legislating laws for prohibiting the system that produce over-polluting of environment. Most of the countries exert gases and polluted waste during the process of making and manufacturing products. Furthermore, the energy for moving machine is also included in fossil fuels that create green-house gases and must be regulated. In materials of producing, companies have obligation for using better resources that creates less pollution. As the major producer is not consumer (citizen) but companies, the movement toward environmental manufacturing will be practical. For companies’ transformation to eco-friendly production, compulsory obligation has to be applied to them. Charging gigantic penalty on using pollution-creating materials and giving benefits to the companies who observe the law well can be the solution for stimulating companies to follow the laws.

    Third, government can try to change the perspective of individuals toward protecting environment. Not a lot, but some people regard protecting environment means saving money, which only applied to the poor. For example, putting little bricks in the toilet tub to save the water used during the flush can be seemed as saving the money. However, it is almost not true. It is one of the action for lasting saving of the resources. By educating not only adults and but also children from they are young, the behavior of saving can be common in normal life, which will lead the perception of ‘Using resources as a method of showing their money off is unreasonable in 21st century.’ As the change of the perception and values change in slow speed, I think the effort for individual must be progressed. So, I argue that educational programs must be well-organized and supported by government to apply those things in school, companies and normal day-by-day living circle.

      3.What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

      Climate is serious problem. Today, we can acknowledge that climate change is reality.
      Climate change is caused by various human activities. This requires urgent action and concerns us all. so We must lead the way in trying to slow down climate change.
      First, we should practice saving of resource and energy. We can save air conditional system in home and work. Saving-water is also very important. While we brush our teeth, using a cup and turning off the tap will save a lot of litters of water a minute. And we can use public transport instead of using the car. Using the public transport can decrease environment problem. Recycling also can solve the environment problem like climate change. Before throwing away our thrash, we should separate trash.

      Second, environment-friendly products are in the spotlight of consumers. So we can use the environment-friendly products for environment. We should more spend proper product of eco-labeling. If many consumers proper to environment-friendly product, many companies produce the environment-friendly product by considering consumer’s spending pattern.

      Finally, planting trees can solve the climate change. We have to plant trees for succeeding generations. We have Arbor Day. This is the official day for us to plant trees and remember how important nature is. If we had more trees, the CO2 that we emit will be neutralized.

      We can simple thing such as planting trees and recycling can for environment. This is not difficult thing. We should try to slow down climate change.

    Q. What can companies do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    Nowadays, the climate change caused many problems. The source of the problem resides in human activity. So we have the responsibility to solve this problem. I think companies have a critical key to reduce the effects of climate change. Company have strong social responsibility. It includes ethical responsibility to preserve the environment while enterprise activity. Actually, many companies in America aims 3P which means profit, planet, people. To fulfill this responsibility, they can follow those three way.

    First, they should produce the product which is made by eco-friendly way. Many companies tricks us to reduce the expense. They use the substances which is harmful to the environment, and they just dispose the wastes by flushing them into the river or burying under the ground. They have to follow the rule which regulate the toxic substances or chemical substances. Also they have to send out the waste in normal procedure. Just following the regulation can improve the situation.

    Second, they can manage their business in eco-friendly way. For example, they have to set the temperature 20°c in winter and 26°c in summer. They can also encourage people to wear shorts instead of stifling full dress. Saving the electric power can be a good solution to reduce the releasing CO2.

    Finally, they can conduct a campaign which contribute to improve the environment. It will contribute to change the awareness of people. Especially, many companies already became a vital part of our everyday lives. So if they persuade people to help environment, people would participate under their guide. Also, it would be effective in publicizing them.

    Those three ways are not difficult to do. If companies cooperate, we can prevent the climate change.

    Q. What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    It is clear that increasingly sustainable development is essential to the future, and it will be a keyword for growth. Also, recent climate change can not only affect the global financial system but also directly affect the interests of the nation. Thus, for sustainable and long-term development of the nation, the government should also try to reduce the negative effects of climate change by reducing the negative effects of climate change and also try to prevent climate change.

    First, we need continuous support for the development of environmentally friendly energy. An effect of Eco-friendly energy development is currently very low and cost is very high when it is compared to using carbon energy. Therefore, many companies continue to give up their green energy development and continue using carbon energy for their current growth. But in the long-term, eco-friendly energy will be far more helpful for green growth, and will benefit not only from the corporate sector but also the national interests. Therefore, there is a need for extensive support for companies to develop environmentally friendly energy.

    Secondly, economic and institutional regulations are needed for the use of carbon energy. It is necessary to regulate the current use of fossil fuels and carbon energy, along with encouraging companies to develop eco-friendly energy. For example, a building or system that is built in the future uses eco-friendly energy, like ‘Zero Energy’, and an additional tax on products using carbon energy. There are also ways to improve fuel economy regulations. These restrictions are already rising in the world, and it will help reduce the need for carbon dioxide in the long run, even if it does not reduce the use of carbon energy.

    Third, it is necessary to establish a forecasting system to cope with rapid climate change. Modern society in particular can benefit greatly from the moment of climate change. Accordingly, the government should strengthen and deploy systems that predict these climate changes and distribute them rapidly to each region. In addition, it should be allowed to exchange real-time information in real time for each area of control. Climate change can be avoided by forecasting climate change and preparing counterplan in advance.

    In conclusion, if the nation can reduce the negative effects caused by climate change in several ways and prevent damage to climate change, it can ‘ continue to develop sustainable development ‘ based on ‘ green growth ‘.

    3.What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    In terms of individuals, we can do lots of things to reduce the effects of climate change.
    First of all, by using eco-friendly product, we can reduce emission of CO2 and other pollutants. CO2 is the most important cause of climate change, and ir makes many environmental problems. Also, while making products, we have to destory environment,too.(ex.paper,chair,…) Using eco-friendly goods is the easiest way we protect the earth.
    We can reduce the effect just buy or not buy the goods.

    Secondly, reducing cow eating can be helpful for climate change.
    According to many researchs, raising cows make more air pollution and less grassland. Cows are raising in huge grassland and they eat grass so more and more field is disappearing. After they eat grass, they break wind and it s one of the reasons of global warming. The more we eat cow, the more pollution will be formed.

    Finally, increasing campaigns like ‘earth day’ can reduce the effect of climate change.
    For example, In Korea, ‘earth day’ is a day when we should turn off the light for 10 minutes. People may think it is no use to turn of thier lights, but it makes big power if many people’s action. It’s like giving rest for earth even if short time. Therefore, many events for earth can be help for climate change.

    Most of all, the most important thing is pay attention and concentrate concern to earth’s change.

    – What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    The climate change these days is resulted from our environmental pollution. Many people are not aware of the environment, and it will lead to serious pollution and climate change in short time. I think the government is most effective to making practical methods, and make people to participate in making a better environment.

    First, the government can make laws to limit the amount of fossil fuels that the companies can use. Fossil fuels used by companies have the most serious effect to the environment. They emit greenhouse gases, and it is the main problem of global warming. The government should limit the use by force, or the use of the fuels won’t reduce.

    Second, governments should do research on developing more environmental friendly resources like solar powered cars. The technologies today are keep increasing, and many ways to maintain the environment is developing. But it is not pragmatic yet, and it is the government’s job to develop and introduce to the society about the techniques.

    Finally, governments should make more public campaign advertisements about the degenerating climate changes, and persuade people to consider about the environment. I think it is the government’s duty to aware the environment reality to the citizens, and make citizens to start from doing easy things to help the environment get better, like reducing disposable products, or using bicycles than cars.

    3. What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    My personal opinion

    I think that the biggest problem of the present time is climate change. Because of climate change, the temperature of the earth is higher than before. So we can’t feel spring, autumn and winter during lots of time and can feel summer much more than before. People who like the weather excepting summer strongly argue that we should do something to reduce climate change to keep the weather like spring, autumn and winter. Besides this reason, there are many reasons that we have to try to reduce climate change. If climate change keep going and does not get better than before, the serious problem will come to us. Then, what should we do to decrease climate change? I think there are many solutions which we can do. From now on, I will introduce to you these solutions one by one.

    First, we have to save the water. I heard that when we save the water, we can reduce lots of Co2 which can cause climate change. Therefore, if we save the water, we will also reduce climate change. Then, how can we do to save the water? When we brush our teeth, we should store the water in the cup. And when we wash our face and body, we try to use as little water as possible. And then we can save the water and reduce climate change.

    Second, we have to try not to use our own car. In other words, when we go to somewhere which is our destination, we should use bicycle, public transportation such as bus and subway or walk instead of using our own car. Because this solution can also reduce lots of Co2 in common with the first of solution that I told you. And I think that it is the best solution that if the distance of our destination is very close from us, we will walk or ride a bicycle to go to there and if the distance is far from us, we will use public transportation to go to there. And if we action this solution in reality, we can reduce climate change and keep our health at the same time.

    Third, we have to promote to reduce climate change by making visual something such as UCC and Cartoon. And the content of promotion materials is the way how we should do to reduce climate change and the reason why we have to make an effort to reduce climate change. But the form of promotion materials must make interesting. Because if these are interesting to people who will watch this, these people will have mind to reduce climate change and action these solutions which promotion materials suggest in reality. Therefore, the problem of climate change get better than before endeavoring by many people.

    And lastly fourth, when we have the chance to buy products, we must choose environmentally friendly products. And to do well recycling is one of the solutions to reduce climate change.

    To sum up, I told you many solutions that the way how we should do to reduce climate change. I would say that if many people keep one of these solutions that I said, the problem of climate change will much get better than before. Let’s cooperate together to solve this problem. Thank you for reading my essay.

    What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    To solve some problems, the most important thing is individuals’ awareness about problems. Government can carry out their plans, but without people’s awareness, complete changes cannot occur. Thus, I would suggest big three things individuals can do.

    First, individuals must receive an education about environment problems. Beside environmentalists or people who interested in that problems, people don’t know about seriousness and even some people don’t know what the problem is. There are various ways. For example, some active people who know well about the problem can organize an study group to research. And then they may attract people saying that ‘we can teach you about these problems easily!’ Or, people can suggest a local government to provide some seminar about the problem. No matter how the way is, but the matter is to make people realize seriousness about this problem.

    Second, individuals may make a list they can do to protect an environment as an unit of family. Power of households is strong. It is better to practice some actions t o solve problems together because doing alone continuously is too difficult. And it is possible to be kept just temporarily. But in family, if people discuss to set a list which they promise to do for environment, an intensive motivation may occur. We can find a starting point of environmental movements in our family. People can practise saving our environment by recycling, not using disposable products and reducing residential wastes.

    Finally, people should give and receiver feedback each other. For a better change, we should not stop at conducting. We should look at our actions going well. So, people need to appraise others’ changes and advise what they need to do.

    Repeating these procedures, individuals will resolve to stop environment pollution.
    It is clear that from making people know how serious this problem is, we can start to recover our environment.

    Q. What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    Recently, the problem of climate change is serious. Climate change affects not only our life but also Earth and ecosystem. I think that to reduce the effects of climate change, individuals have to make an effort first. Then what can individuals do to reduce climate problems?

    First, people have to reduce the use of fossil fuel such as coal and oil. One of the reasons for global warming is excessive use of fossil fuel. Using fossil fuel produces greenhouse gases, which make the Earth hotter. Therefore, we should reduce the greenhouse gases emission by reducing the use of fossil fuel. It is also good to reduce trash. When garbage is decomposed, methane which is more harmful than the carbon dioxide is made. Thus people should reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by recycling.

    Second, people should use eco-friendly products. These days, there are many eco-friendly products so people can buy them easily. Using eco-friendly products is very easy and simple and also provide a great help to the environment. We can reduce emission of the carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases by using them. Therefore, individuals should buy products with eco label, choose energy-efficient appliances and use recyclable materials.

    Third, we have to plant some trees. Nowadays, climate change is serious because of thoughtless logging and constructing buildings. When forest decreases, the natural ability to absorb greenhouse gases also diminishes. It causes serious environmental problems. Therefore we should plant trees. As you all know, trees absorb much carbon dioxide. Especially, pine tree plants absorb 12kg of carbon dioxide per year. Sometimes there is ‘tree planting event.’ When that happens, planting some trees will help the environment greatly.

    In conclusion, we can have a good influence on the environment in various ways. Therefore we will have to help the Earth by doing these things.

    3.What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    We all know the fact that environmental pollution leading to climate change is definitely serious, today. Because nature needs too long time to go back to its good condition in the past, we should protect our environment from now on, not to make matters worse. In this essay, I want to describe how people can reduce the effects of environmental pollution connected to our climate change.
    First of all, we can protect our nature by reducing automobile exhaust. In Korea, there are so many cars are on the road, and it is one of the main reasons of the air pollution. It seems that there are many other ways to replace using cars which result in those serious automobile exhaust. We can walk or use bicycles or public transportation according to the distance to our destination. It can be inconvenient a little, but by doing so, we can pass the nature in far better condition down to our descendants.
    Second, by reducing use of disposable products, we can protect our nature. It seems that the more we burn those products, the more we pollute our air and it contributes greatly to climate change. Many people use a lot of paper cups, wooden chopsticks, and other disposable products with no definite idea. By using those products when really needed, we can help our environment to keep this condition.
    Lastly, we can stop our climate change by conserving water. It needs too many greenhouse gases to store, purify, and move water to each house. It is, therefore, definitely sure that conserving water is one of the ways to protect our environment. We save water through many diverse ways, especially using cups when we brush our teeth, or surely turning off the tap when we don’t need to use water.
    In conclusion, there are many other ways to stop our environment be polluted in terms of individuals, and by doing so we can somewhat ease serious problems like climate change. It’s true that we have already been in the condition of serious environmental pollution, but it’s also true that we can prevent making matters worse from now on. Through many possible ways we can do easily, we should protect ours. If we don’t, we lose it forever.

    3.What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    These days, technologies of world is keep growing and developing. More and more companies and people try to build buildings and use fossil fuels. Because of these, environment keeps being destroyed. Climate change is the most well known result of destroyed environment. To solve these problems, we need to protect the environment by doing some simple activities.
    First of all, we can reduce the effects of climate change by not driving cars. These days many people drive their own car. However when driving, the cars use fossil fuels which will become exhaust gas of automobile. This is a serious problem of climate change. Instead of driving our own cars, we can use public transportations like subway and bus. And when we use public transportations many times, the traffic jam will be solved, too.
    Also, we can grow some plants. Accoring to a research, a pine tree can absorb 12 tones of carbon dioxide for a year. Carbon dioxide is a main cause of climate change. So if we plant some trees and grow them, it will be good for protecting the environment and air cleaning. And we can make a fine habitat for animals by planting many trees and plants.
    In addition, we can reduce the waste and do recycling. When burning some wastes, lots of carbon dioxide are made and this will be a serious problem. So if we do recycling well and try not to make waste, it will be a good impact to the protection of envrionment.
    Like these, there are lots of things that we can do in our life to protect the environment and solve climate change. What’s important is that the government and people have to worl together to solve these problems.

    What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    Before describing “What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?”, I am going to tell you about the reason why I choose this sentence. This sentence is comprehensive about reducing the effects of climate change. For example, corporates and individuals cannot force each other to save earth. However, government can make system or institution which forces them to reduce the effects of climate change. Because companies or people response economic incentive. Therefore, if tax or subsidy is given to companies or people, they will try to save world. And government has action itself which reduce the effects of climate change.

    From now on, I am going to tell you about what government has to do. First, government has to join to international organizations which are trying to reduce the effects of climate change such as WMO, UNEP, TOKYO CONVENTION etc. If one country is going to try to save the climate change, the effort is almost nothing because the world is comprised of a number of countries. Therefore, world has to cooperate for saving the environment. However, some countries which have power about the capital, the military and the politic are leaving the organization because it reduces their benefit. And it might be no meaning if developed or big countries are withdrawing. However, some professors said the environmental organization banned developing countries to be developed.

    Second, the government should impose tax or give incentive to the company or people who are polluting environment or saving the earth. They should do first make institution which makes this action legal. One nation composes of economic principal agents and the agents response to money. It might seem to be bad because it is not spontaneous. However, it is my view that this is the only thing to move people or companies to reduce the effects of climate change. In capitalism, people and companies are selfish. And they have to be enlightened selfish by government. On the other hand, there is issue about hardship of implement of action.

    In conclusion, government has a lot to do for saving the environment. And I hope that this action would success for descendant.

    Q: What can the government do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    A: Nowadays, environmental problems are getting more serious, and the pollution affects climate change. We should be aware of current environment status and help preventing environment getting polluted. I want to introduce what the government can do to reduce the effects of climate change.
    It is very important to conserve ecosystem to prevent climate change, and there are many ways for the government to do it.
    Firstly, the government should restrict companies to make eco-friendly products that use less fossil fuels. Using fossil fuel a lot is a primary cause of global warming. The government should make sure that products do not emit freon gases and other harmful elements. Also, the government should regulate companies not to pollute ecosystems, such as charging a heavy fee to company which do not have any purifying system.
    Also, the government should have great power to regulate other countries which are polluting nature. Recently, dust from Chinese factories became a hot issue, and these kind of discord is prevalent all over the world. So the government should be firm to save current and future citizens’ lives. Concluding an agreement for environmental protect will be a good plan to save prevent the climate change.
    Lastly, the government should support companies which make eco-friendly products and work with alternative energies. Some selfish companies avoid making clean and effective products because of the expenses. So with the governmental support, companies can develop more eco-friendly products.
    The government’s role is very crucial to prevent climate change, but it also needs individuals and companies should help. I hope our descendants live in a appropriate climate just like us.

    Q. What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    Climate change is related to global warming. So reducing CO2 will be part of solution to climate change.

    We can try not to turn on air conditioning too much at summer and winter.

    Choosing Eco-friendly goods and efficient energy using product  can help to reduce CO2 too. And also I recommend you to use recycle product.

    You can reduce CO2 by reducing water consuming when you brush your teeth or wash your face or taking shower.
     
    Try not to make trash and recycle. When you reduce your trash 10%, 18kg of CO2 will be reduced by year.

    Unplugging electricity products when you do not use and using stairs also help to reduce CO2.

    Using public transport and driving in economic speed is a one way to practice.
     
    We can participate in Earth Hour at every last saturday of March. Earth Hour has purpose to give short rest to the earth by turning off light during one hour.

    Q. What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?
    These days, the effects of climate change are serious to human and to nature especially, the fine dust from China is deadly to everyone. The individuals’ acknowledgement of the effects of climate change is essential. If individuals participate to this problem, then they would try to find and practice the methods to reduce the effects of climate change. Therefore, the change would be able to start from individuals to companies and to government.
    First, Individuals’ acknowledgement of how the effects of climate change are deadly is the most important step to reduce the effects of climate change because the climate change has happened because of humans. Since people didn’t save the nature in the ways of using too much fuel which makes the earth hotter, we are facing global warming, fine dust, lack of trees, and etc. The nature has been sacrificed because of human’s selfishness. Human wanted more developed technology and eventually now we are chocking ourselves. People should acknowledge of that we are the cause of the climate change and ransom for the situation is expensive. Our health and nature are suffered from the effects of climate change. It’s getting worse, and we should do something that will prevent the worst situation.
    Second, we should be familiar with environmentally friendly products. Everyone knows that environmentally friendly products are good for the nature and us. But we don’t actually use or buy them because they are not so familiar. We are already familiar with environmentally unfriendly products. We know that environmentally friendly products will reduce the effects of climate change; therefore we should use them in daily life. We should believe the well developed technology and be familiar with the environmentally friendly products to save the world and us.
    Third, we can reduce the effects of climate change by changing our daily behaviors. To reduce the effects of climate change, we can change our behaviors that would make less pollution such walking, riding bicycle or public transportation instead of riding our own car to reduce air pollution. We can also wear mask when we go to outside to prevent the effects of fine dust. Individuals actually can’t remove the fine dust which is coming from China, but we can prevent the effects by wearing mask. There are more options .such as using less fuel, doing separate collection when we throw trash away, using chemical products less, that we can practice to reduce the effects of climate change.
    As you see, if we put little effort and pay more attention to the problem, the effects of climate change will be reduced.

    Nowadays, the climate change is more extreme because of globalwarming. the spring and fall are shorter, while the summer and winter are longer. In this situation, I think it is most important that government takes a action first, because if government ignores the climate change, the piblic also dosen’t take care about it. And then, the government should suggest protecting environment to companies and individuals. So, I choose number 2.
    First, the government should limit coal-fired industry. I think that many developed and developing country like Korea tend to be developed by using a lot of coal-fired industry that cause environmental pollution. By restricting industry, the government can minimize the aggravation of environmental pollution.
    Second, The government should promote public awareness of the problem of climate change by activating public utility advertisements. Most people only feel the strangeness of the climate, but they don’t try to improve with the problem. Therefore, the government should inform the public of the dangers of climate change, and make a mood that promote practices.

    The government should make the law of eco-system. First, they should prohibit the environment by increasing tax of companies which especially make harm to the environment. I think that company should pay more because they are producing more harm than others to rise their own profit. The profit they have has a part of sacrificing of nature. Second, the government should make firm law of individual who aggravates the situation of environment. There are lots of eco-crimminals around us from the little child who throw the rubbish to grown adult who overuse shampoo or hair spray that melt the ice. We need some strong restrictions than now for the better future.

    What can individuals do to reduce the effects of climate change?

    Climate change is a big problem in Korea. Climate change means the shortage of spring and fall. Summer gets longer and winter gets shorter. In this flow, there will be only two seasons: summer and winter. Furthermore, climate change also means the change of temperature in summer and winter. Summer becomes more hot and winter becomes more cold.
    Climate change affects not only our life but also earth and ecosystems. It has far-reaching influences. If you see something that affects our lives, many people have a difficulty to living in changed seasons. They can’t adapt new situations because the weather has changed so suddenly. In summer and winter, it will be required a lot of air conditioning cost and heating bills. Climate change gives many changes to earth and ecosystems. As climate change begins suddenly, the temperature of earth will be increased. The increasing temperature of earth is called global warming. It makes glaciers to malt away. Then, the animals might lost their habitats. The ecosystem will be collapsed if the global warming begins.
    We can reduce the effects of climate change. Firstly, we have to take the public transport. The carbon dioxide emissions of automobiles are negatively affected to climate change. Therefore, we should take the public transport to reduce climate change. Secondly, we should have a mind which nature is important to us. We should not damage the nature. The nature is place which person and animals live in.
    If we have many efforts to reduce the effects of the climate change. It will be improved more than before. We should give a lot of help to our earth, habitat.
