This reduction led to a hold being formed in the earth’s ozone layer in an area that has less than 220 Dobson units of ozone. In 1995 a second hole formed over the Arctic. Ozone is basically an oxygen atom that has been multiplied by three and is created by the suns rays high up in the atmosphere and is capable of blocking most of the UV light rays that range between 0.28 and 0.32 microns (Flannery 213-221). Chapter 24: The Road to Kyoto The Kyoto protocol faced a myriad of problems before it was eventually passed. Initially it was thought to be dead until when Russia ratified it on February 16, 2005 which was ninety days after its passing. The road to the formulation of the Kyoto protocol was seen to begin in 1985 at a scientific conference that was held in Australia. Five years after this conference methods that could be used to effectively reduce these emissions were discovered. The major hindrances that have faced the Kyoto protocol have been mainly economically and politically based. This has especially been so with Australia which currently has the highest per capita levels of greenhouse emissions as compared to all the other industrialized countries. The growth of emission levels in Australia over the past decade has also been considerably higher as compared to other OECD countries. Currently, the Kyoto Protocol is the only agreed upon treaty that aims to fight climate change (Flannery 222-231). Chapter 25: Cost, Cost, Cost Global warming is continuously increasing the amount of money that is spent around the world in efforts aimed at reducing its effects. Countries such as Australia and the United States wrongly perceive the Kyoto protocol as aiming to increase these costs for its member countries as opposed to reducing them. An example of the overall effectiveness of this protocol is that if Britain were to switch to using 100% renewable energy, this would have the effect of reducing the annual growth of its spending on global warming at an annual rate of 1% until 2050. If everyone takes the time to do their job, saving the earth does not come at a huge price. The warmer the planets temperature the higher the likelihood that nations will face increased costs as they attempt to offer the necessary required relief to their citizenry. Flannery is seen to successfully prove his point that is time for all the nations to step up and ensure that they work together so as to try and reverse the catastrophic effects of climate change because enough is not being done at the current slow rate (Flannery 232-238). Chapter 26: People in Green Houses Shouldn’t Tell Lies There has been a lot of corruption in government and private organizations in regards to matters pertaining to the effects of climate change. Several groups have formed erroneous theories that water down the effects of climate change. The Global Climate Coalition that was founded by fifty companies in the coal, oil, chemical, gas and auto industries is one such group that claims addressing the effects of climate change could potentially add approximately fifty cents to the price of a gallon of gas in the United States. Other examples of this rampant widespread corruption include the case of Philip A. Clooney who happened to serve in
Name: University: Course: Tutor: Date: Chapter 23: A Close – Run Thing In this chapter, the author discusses the Kyoto Protocol as well as delving further into discussing the emission of pollutants such as chlorofluorocarbons into the atmosphere. The Kyoto Protocol’s predecessor the Montreal Protocol is also mentioned…
In chapter I, he enlightens us on the nature of the metaphor and the role it plays in understanding organizational behavior and management. Morgan explains how all the theories of organization and management are based on metaphors (implicit images) that “implies a way of thinking and a way of seeing that pervade how we understand our world generally." (Gareth Morgan, Chap.
The Hardley Centre that is located in London created one such model, named the Hardley climate model that happens to have relatively high accuracy readings as a result of its careful considerations of factors such as moisture mass, heat conversion and its proper simulation of the present and past climates.
As a function of the economic downturn and the fundamental lack of resources in general, those interested in seeking ways to accomplish this have to make a fundamental choice between seeking to combat issues relating to CO2 emissions from transportation or seeking to redefine the way that power is provided through the electricity grid.
More effort should be placed on preventing emissions emitted by the power grid. The renewable power that has been generated from turning the power grid green can be used to decarbonize transportation. Denmark generates about 21% of its power from wind energy and is currently considered to be the current world leader not only in the manufacture of wind turbines but also in wind power production.
Becoming a public company had a downside: the obsession with stock price behavior to satisfy Wall Street expectations was emotionally stressful and distracting. If management leadership is strong and focused on achieving goals, making decisions based on what's good for the company will be, in the long-term, also good for the stock price (Schultz and Yang 179-189).
uthors like Prilleltensky have clearly put forth the need to improve the traditional aspect of career development as the approach is described to be a ‘value – free model that embraces individualism and meritocracy’. The chapter moves on further to speak about promoting
