Climate change and Great doomsday

Climate change refers to the global shift in the atmosphere composed of changes in the planet’s usual climate, such as temperature and wind caused by human activities. Doomsday clock refers to the clock face that describes the countdown of all related global catastrophes as discovered in 1947 by scientists.

There are increased severe diseases during this time, such as measles, dengue, and intestinal infections due to nuclear weapons explosion. World war two, which occurred between 1939–1945, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, resulted in significant property destruction and loss of lives. The diseases resulted from inventory warhead weapons developed by nuclear countries such as the USA and the UK. Through proper cooperation between the nuclear weapon nations, will minimize the spread of the diseases and allow room for sustainable development goals. Besides, this cooperation can reduce the acceleration of these diseases through the introduction of vaccine diplomacy. The possible threats to climate change are global warming and air pollution that cause an unexpected change in the environment, affecting the human race.

Climate change response to:

1) Individual

Individuals focus more on natural hazards that affect people, such as temperature increases or decreases during the cold season, resulting in fever. There might be a water deficit during the dry season since there are limited rains as the cause of the drought. People with higher education levels have risk perception based on climate changes such as the intensity of floods and droughts and therefore lean on countries with better climate policies. Climate change may affect an individual’s health both physically and mentally, such as increased anxiety among many diseases. People affected by droughts, fire, or floods may decide to move to places with favorable climate conditions.

2) Nation-state

A state focuses more on better healthcare and education facilities as funds are required to facilitate the areas affected by drought, floods, and contagious diseases where medicine is urgently needed. Increased population due to the immigration of refugees is determined by the number of residents in selected areas. Perhaps, due to drought and war in their country, the shift in climate changes forces them to move to neighborhoods with better living conditions. The war metaphor may transform the climate and the state’s sustainability as weather may gradually change.

A nation-state with better policies towards climate change is easy to have its citizens happier and able to enjoy a quality life. States with better climate are less likely to experience war with others as they are in a position to easily sustain themselves with what they have and avoid war and internal disturbances as a result of climate change such as fights over watering sources or sudden movement of people fleeing places that seem to be drier.

3) Internationalism

The diverse development of governmental and non-governmental organizations resulting from arctic politics represents indigenous people’s interests and goals in the region. However, internationalism helps the arctic council develop policies aimed at planning and protecting the environment in case of climate change in the country. The improved technology help in fastening the movement of resources at an advanced rate during the climatic condition.

4) Global response

There is a massive invasion of insects and distribution due to climatic changes on a global scale. Different models are used to estimate and predict an attack, such as species distribution models and correlative ecological niche models that help preserve space for exploitation. This semi mechanistic model helps to investigate biological invasion and the nephritis fruit flies’ model. The models help predict and estimate invasion time and space. The climate change occurrence on dams and lakes globally occur due to glaciers recede and down waste, resulting in floods that have led to the destruction of resources and infrastructure in surrounding areas.

Current and future climate change response on natural rights/ethics and nation-state, internationalism, Globalism

These are the rights that govern the relationship between human rights and climate change. Human rights help ensure accountability for damages caused; hence, the violation will cause international climate law enactment. On the contrary, international climate law helps regulate the number of emulsions and predict an invasion that will result in unfavorable climate changes.

Nationalism and nation-state, internationalism, Globalism

Climate change is said to be uncontainable as it ignores geographic and ethnic boundaries. As used in humanities and social science areas, the stumbling block helps ensure adaptability in the nationalism sector that allows in new life trade. The method used to provide no invasion of insects should be clear and understandable.

The underlying state of anarchy and nation-state, internationalism, globalism final

The state of anarchy, globalization and nation-state argues that global interests and norms govern cooperation on climate change at the international level. Climate funds are raised through development assistance budgets that help to facilitate the damages of climate change. The state helps in reducing emissions domestically by getting involved in ensuring there are moral hazards. This can be through reducing the production of fossil fuels using alternatives sources of fuels such as wind and solar energy. Renewable energy is infinite. Planting more trees will assist in the synthesis of carbon dioxide. Using alternatives to energy by driving electric cars or walking and bike to places. Reducing, reuse and recycling will help save planet earth by creating awareness on how we can reduce global warming. Business organizations tend to support gas emissions through framing, localizing, and normalizing as they innovate ways to decarbonize the gases.

How will climate change have changed nations by 2075?

This articulates more on both positive and negative effects. The importance of a water maintenance model used to access water level to curb overflow might lead to flooding of dams. The advanced technologies used in the projection of future water resources are estimated using a hydrological model. The use of improved technology on the future forecast of health risks helps curb contagious diseases spread due to climate changes. As the globe continues to be warmer mosquitoes begin to roam beyond their environments, leading to a shift of liability of diseases like malaria, dengue fever, chikungunya, and West Nile virus. Researchers forecast different scenarios depending on the extent of climate change. Climate change is known to cause a wildfire, hence leading to limited pastoral land that results in drought. Through cooperation among nuclear nations, will enhance and limit more war.

Conclusion

Climate change is said to affect both individuals and states globally. The use of powerful weapons during the war may have caused drastic changes to human beings as they were infected with diseases, and the destruction of property was witnessed. The states were forced to raise funds from development resources to help curb the damages caused by climatic hazards. Different models are used to help stop the spread and invasion of insects that can cause infections. Furthermore, innovative methods help reduce gas emissions from the industries to curb them.
