Prevention of global warming

Global warming is a weather phenomenon where the temperatures of the atmosphere near the surface of the earth have increased continuously in time. This is as a result of the increasing concentration of green house gases in the atmosphere resulting from both natural and human activities like volcanic eruption and forest fires.  As a global menace, it affects each and every human being and all sectors of the economy

Global warming results to a negative and a positive feedback mechanism to the dynamics of the atmosphere thus need to be well understood to avoid losses. The elite, being the policy consultants if not the leaders thus requires the knowledge for preparation of the policy papers expeditiously. More so the knowledge available should correlate with the atmospheric changes for proper planning (Lomborg 36). 

The atmosphere is the mother nature of all disciplines of life sciences. In effect, any variance in its composition in one way or the other directly or indirectly affects the other disciplines. Global warming has led to the speed up of the hydrological cycle. This has led to the intensification of desert areas, more severe and frequent flooding, reduction of ice caps in the mountains and also more ice thawing in the polar areas. Aviation industry heavily depends on the atmosphere as a medium of transport and the recent drastic changes in the atmospheric conditions leading to heavy icing leads to changes on the aircraft aerodynamics and this has led to great losses.  Thus, the transport industry had to advance in the crafting models to help curb this. (IPCC 564)

Entailing more than the average rising temperature  but also long term changes in precipitation amounts, high tide levels, ocean salinity and acidity, wind patterns and extreme weather events, including droughts, high precipitation, heat waves and the intensity of tropical cyclones, that entails  hurricanes and typhoons poses great danger and exposure to calamities. Scientists experience uncertainty due from the models that they use where some are outdated. This results to slower rate of adaptation as compared to the rate of atmospheric change. Also the theoretical frameworks available to understand the global climate change are not convenient thus leading to great losses in the business industry. There is the lack of casual link between the human knowledge and the climate change, whereby there are cases of conflicting information and predictions. Clear understanding of the global warming is vital, considering the most vulnerable people to the effects  including the low lying areas and coastal areas due to flooding as well as those living in the Arctic areas due to the melting of the polar ice will definitely lead to change of their way of life and the ecosystem. (Gardiner 555).

Global warming also leads to threats in the cultural heritage and the traditional ways of living including the feeding habits. The countries at great threat of effect and exposure have incurred political instability and drastic amendments of policies to avoid displacements of the citizens. Also, ill health of people, plants and animals have great threats to their wealth and their lives too.
There exists some strength in Science related to the global warming which includes the use of modern technology top help combat its effects. But, the limitations are also equally or outwitting. There exists a great shortage of data available on the science of climate change. The models used to interpret the data available to help in the formulation of climate predictive models are uncertain. (Lomborg 36)

This calls for strong prediction and interpretation models that should be adapted to help in the early warning. This is through the identification of the climate models gap and the updating of the current one more so on the extreme weather events. This helps the scientists to accurately advise the policy makers that would wisely notify the public instead of relying on the disaster management.
