I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

Global warming is a booming issue that happens because of the change of climate. Climate change is not a specific problem such as desertification, forest fire, or illegal logging but it is general problem confronted by all countries in the world. The United Nations agency focusing on climate change is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. They have drafted strategies to tackle this issue by holding key steps including the Kyoto Protocol, Bali Road Map, Cancun...

I just strangely wonder - struck for a while since reading some information about gender and climate change. The first confusing information I have read is the correlation between gender and climate change. In fact, women contribute to climate change. So, should we blame my mother when the climate is changing? Let’s check below for some references! We know that the effects of climate change will vary among regions. It means each country changes greenhouse emissions with diffe...

We are really regretful throwing half of the food away to the dump side. It happens because none of us have a think about how much food we spend and dump daily. We realize that we waste them in the form of too much food prepared; too much food not used; food past its sell and use-by date; food wasted. It will become custom for us when we ignore the negative impacts of wasted food and rotting food. So the impacts should be considered deliberately especially to the economy and the en...

It was an adventure when my friend and I were appointed by my teacher to actively steer a committee to food waste training held by local government. It was so difficult when we wanted to help the program by campaigning green solutions of reducing wasted food notably by GHG emissions. My friend and I attempted to do it with high and active passion, although did not really understand which steps should be taken to reduce GHG emissions. However, we thought that it was not the grea...

There is no dispute today that Planet Earth is reaching a point where it can no longer sustain our intake levels. If we care about our planet, about ourselves, our children and other living things then we need to learn how to turn things around and bring about lasting transformation. Most environmental problems are global in nature, meaning, they have global ramifications. Let me explain by saying that many ecosystems that are managed by countries have vast global benefits and...

The recent catastrophe in the Phillipines has affected millions of people around the globe. Yes, I'm talking about Typhoon Haiyan. Children in the affected areas don't have roofs above their heads, nothing to eat, no clean water and no schools. Parents are having a rough time getting things together for their families. I believe it would be great to do our part in helping the victims. Charity, people, charity!! Heartfelt prayers and strength to all of you in the Phillipines. Stay s...

Climate change is the biggest environmental and humanitarian hazard/crises of our time. We need to take collective actions to ensure the adoption of cleaner energy sources at home and abroad. Climate change is affecting our economy, health and communities in different ways. If actions are not taken, the result can be disastrous to life and the environment as a whole. Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere on a daily basis, forming a th...

With the advent and reliance on nature's fluid (crude oil), our lives and environment have become plagued with all manner of pains- from oil spills, to gas flares to land grabs to deforestation to environmental degradation, from degradation to the loss of biodiversities from loss of biodiversities to starvation and death and weather / climate changes. All of this happens because we fail to play safe with that which nature has given to us (natural resources). We cannot explain t...
