Politics changing with changing climate
Well earth’s climate is not the only thing which is changing. The political climate across the world is also changing and how.
Till a few years back the issues which used to dominate any major election worldwide were the respective country’s economic state, public health structure, and religion or security issues. But as the ice melted at the poles so did these traditional issues.
People are now more concerned about the changing climate than ever before. People around the world now easily relate the changing global climate to their way of living.Be it a hurricane on the Gulf coast, floods in central Europe or draught in Portugal or Spain, the first question that comes in the minds of the people is that are our leaders doing anything about the changing climate?
People now directly relate the rise in food products to the pressure on farmlands due to the change in climate which effects the growth of the crops. People now want their governments to switch from the traditional fuels to more clean fuels. People now think twice before buying a new car or installing a new air conditioner. It is clear from the industry trends that the consumers now want more fuel efficient cars.
With changing climate, the concerns of the masses are also rising. The people want to action; the people want to see the measures discussed in international conferences to be implemented.
It’s the first time the history of the American Presidential elections that the issues of climate change & global warming have become such a hot political property. Every potential candidate wants to get it right as far as these controversial issues are concerned. But the like the people around the world, the Americans are also divided on the issue of how or to what extent global warming is effecting our climate.
None the less, our politicians are fast gearing up to use these issues to their advantage to gain as much political currency as they can.
