Kyoto Protocol: Its Impact on Global Climate Change and the Philippines

Kyoto Protocol: Its Impact on Global Climate Change and the Philippines

Ratings: (0)|Views: 448 |Likes:
This paper has basically five purposes, (1) to understand the Kyoto Protocol, relating it to the present situation of the global climate, (2) to clarify the methodologies and policies being implemented under the protocol, (3) what risks did the United States foresee that made them back out from the ratification of the agreement, and locally (4) the impact of Kyoto Protocol in the Philippines in general, and (5) its impact on the Filipinos, especially the small-scale tree farmers. And with the paper would be our answer to the question, if this Kyoto Protocol would be the Superman of our generation, or would it worsen the already devastating problem.

 ABSTRACT
Life depends on the warmth of the sun being trapped by layers of gases that surround the Earth. We now produce so much of these heat-trapping gases that the layer isgetting thicker, heating the world, changing the climate and threatening our way of life. Asthe world gets hotter, some of the extreme effects we are experiencing now will becomemore frequent, making our planet a more hostile place to live. If we won’t act now, it maybe too late.With the current global climate scenario we are experiencing now,environmentalists start to give predictions and world leaders are put upon the pressure of handling the situation. Increased levels of emissions from harmful gases like methane andcarbon dioxide from countries around the world have been pointed out as the main culprit for the abrupt change in the climate system, and so in 1997, world leaders met at Kyoto,Japan to formulate a solution to the threatening problem. That gave birth to the KyotoProtocol.This paper has basically five purposes, (1) to understand the Kyoto Protocol,relating it to the present situation of the global climate, (2) to clarify the methodologies andpolicies being implemented under the protocol, (3) what risks did the United States foreseethat made them back out from the ratification of the agreement, and locally (4) the impact of Kyoto Protocol in the Philippines in general, and (5) its impact on the Filipinos,especially the small-scale tree farmers. And with the paper would be our answer to thequestion, if this Kyoto Protocol would be the Superman of our generation, or would it worsen the already devastating problem.
