ltinational companies, carbon trading and offset organizations, and global cities that have entered this policy arena and have developed their own initiatives and approaches to addressing this [global warming] issue” (Schroeder 2009). Thus, the preventive measures against the phenomenon under consideration are being developing by global community.
Global warming is a widely discussed topic. There are many scientific works, which discuss the phenomenon and its consequences. Some scientists recognize the fact of global warming, while a great part considers the issue to be a myth. The change of climate on the planet is evident, but the question is if it can be called “global warming”. Thus, the theory of global warning is rather controversial. According to the web research results, the phenomenon under consideration seems rather a myth than reality and the myths about it are created by press. Mass media creates false representation of global warming. In 1990s very few experts believed in this phenomenon. Cook argues: “scientific skepticism is healthy. In fact, science by its very nature is skeptical. Genuine skepticism means considering the full body of evidence before coming to a conclusion. However, when you take a close look at arguments expressing climate ‘skepticism’, what you often observe is cherry picking of pieces of evidence while rejecting any data that don’t fit the desired picture. This isn’t skepticism. It is ignoring facts and the science” (Cook). Many countries signed Kyoto protocol in addition to Framework Convention on Climate Change, but it did not mean that the points of it were fully accepted and followed. Framework Convention on Climate Change is the agreement signed by more than 180 countries of the world including all the countries of the former USSR and all the developed countries. The document is about the common principles of the countries’ activity on the issue of climate change. The Convention was accepted in 1992 and

This paper deals with the subject of oil drilling in the US. Environmental regulations are being outlined, and the latest governmental guidelines and reports are being analyzed. As the reports are based on the changing results of assessment of oil drilling’s environmental impact, there are also introductory remark about drilling procedure and conditions in this paper.
The complexity of environmental problems relating to scope, interactions, biological processes call for a set of elite experts to mange them. Therefore, complexity of the problem requires technocratic and administrative rational response. Environmental politics is all about humanity being organised itself to comply with the nature.
Many states have passed by-laws on environmental preservation in which they forge ideas on environmental priorities and values. The idea of world civic policy is basically the workings of the state with the public and around the government to achieve their environmental objectives.
Which theories are most effective in explaining the global politics of the environment? Name: Course: Collage: Lecturer: Date: The discipline of the global environment politics explains and analyses the role of the global institutions, states, global power, norms and ideology and the global political economy as well as the various theories of the international relations.
This is by adopting varying technological measures that are designed to reduce the negative impact to the people who occupy different areas. In the quest to maximise on the available resources in the world, people continue to invent things that are required for better life in their situation (Kumar and Nehar 2007 p34-37).
This paper focuses on the fact that green politics lacks any formal alignment. It is neither left, not right. So the point that this paper seeks to prove is the fact that green politics is in fact forward looking in its 'alignment'. This has been done through an analysis of its various features.
Science has been pivotal in ascertaining the nature of these problems and has also contributed much in outlining state policies, although it is without limitations and uncertainties. The partnership of science and public policy is indeed a marvelous
