Why we are still ignorant about global warming?

Why we are still ignorant about global warming? How can we make it compulsory for each and everyone on this planet to contribute something to avoid further global warming?

  1. Dear Ishani,

    Fewer and fewer people are ignorant about global warming, though education and increased awareness of the science is an ongoing aim around the world. To make it compulsory that everyone takes action to tackle human-induced climate change requires governments to fully engage with international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions. For individuals in those countries this might mean a combination of better information, carbon taxes and maybe even personal carbon allowances.

  2. I do think there is some ignorance about global warming- it stems mostly from the desire to keep things as they are, and resistance to change, even if the current situation is undesirable and avoidable. But the awareness of the issue is certainly increasing and more and more people do care about it.

    I think as Dave suggests above, it’s definitely going to require international co-operation.
