Climate change results to large-scale and global social and natural systems changes. Ocean acidification cause escalated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations. Large-scale changes may occur abruptly, that is, within a shorter period and may be irreversible. Abrupt climate changes culminate to rapid carbon dioxide and methane from permafrost release culminate to increase global warming. Those who argue that the government’s attempt to effect environmental regulations is premised on mere propaganda have limited and poor scientific comprehension of sudden climatic change. The fact remains that global warming is a real global issue breeding both climatic and weather changes. Higher global warming magnitudes are a threat to human health. However, these environmental regulations arise from increasing human activities.
Global warming should be below 20C compared to pre-industrial level. There are many reasons that have prompted the government to adopt stringent environmental regulations with the intent of curbing carbon emissions. United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) reports show that efforts in the 21st century in reduction of carbon emissions are inadequate in meeting the 20C target by UNFCCC. This is exacerbated by the 2.2% rise in greenhouse gases emissions between 2000-2010 compared to 1970-2000’s 1.3% per year (Mathez & Smerdon, 2009).
