Climate change, ethics and sustainability: An innovative approach

Climate change is a phenomenon nowadays that is well studied in the field of natural sciences. The aim of this article is to contribute an innovative approach and ethical sustainability to tackle possible solutions on climate change. It is also focused on how to synthesize different approaches on areas being affected. Hence, human being is included in the basic variable of change in the framework of fundamental ecology. That is why it is important to consider a broader view of climate change from historical perspective.

 

Global warming

The increase in Earth’s average temperatures at different latitudes is clear evidence that human action influence the process. The elimination of greenhouse gas particularly carbon dioxide and other gases which is known to increase temperature need to be address. Also the preservation of plant and animals as well as the biodiversity of the ocean and other ecosystems requires attention. Global warming on the other hand increased temperature, sea level rise, acidification and deterioration of habitat draws awareness of human being conditions.

Climate change: a broader vision

Science in different field conducted research study about the phenomenon of climate change. These includes geology particularly stratigraphy that focus on the study of stratified sedimentary, metamorphic and volcanic rocks.The archaeological stratigraphy that deals with the strata of soil according to age. In which the older is found at the deepest portion and the younger one is on the top. Moreover, paleontology is one of the considerations wherein the remains of living existence have been recorded through time.

The concept of sustainability

Sustainability in broader concept pertains to the ability to endure satisfaction of the present needs without compromising the future generation. It is a feature by which system or element remain functional and active over time. Resources can be used responsibly to ensure the balance in the economy, environment and social welfare.Climate change is a global problem implicating many countries especially those that are affected directly.

 

Therefore, the approach on climate change needs to consider the anthropological, geological, paleontological and ethical perspectives. Global warming is the key factor to resolve this phenomenal problem, since nature does not have an infinite resources. It does not have unlimited capacity to regenerate as a results, all living existence pay the price for exploiting the natural resources.
