Solutions to the effects of global warming on water management from a political point of view...proposed by
Lieberman Warner - Cap and trade System
The cap and trade system is a system way for countries to lower their emission of greenhouse gases by having a cap on how much you’re allowed to let out.
If you don’t reach the cap for greenhouse gases you’re allowed to emit. Otherwise they could sell the right to other countries or companies that exceed there allowed cap.
Benefits with a Cap and trade system:
- it would bring developing countries and industrial countries in to a carbon regimen where their all at an equal level.
- It Benefits countries and companies that turn to renewable sources of energy. It also helps counties that manage to cut their emission or greenhouse gases so they can sell the remaining allowance to release greenhouse gases to other countries and companies that have exceed their cap.
- It would help the research and development of new way of using industrial product energy.
One solution to this whole emission problem could be the “Cap and Trade” system which purpose is that every country gets a maximum limit of CO2 emissions of different kinds. And if your country doesn’t use all of their allowed emissions they get the choice to sell the leftovers to a needing country that have used all their resources. I think that this would be a very good way to get rid of the worst consumers. From a political point of view this would be good for some countries and worse for others. It could get a bad effect on countries with a high industrial activity because it would affect their export. They would lose money because they would have to pay for more emissions, which would lead to raised costs for the country. That would in turn lead to lower salaries and disappointed citizens. I think that the cap and trade system would smooth out the economical differences between countries. The developing countries, that don’t have very high CO2 emissions could sell everything they don’t use to the industrial countries. That makes an income for the developing country and it gives incentive for the industrial countries so that they on a long term develop products with less CO2 emissions and make some money themselves.
A solution for the water problem from a political point of view.
To stop the water problem we will have to create new, more enforced laws that are stricter against pollution in the open ocean. This is to preserve the still drinkable water we have. One of the few discussable options for these new laws are putting a limit on CO2 emissions for each country depending on their population and from it create an cap and trade system which might reduce the pollution a lot. The cap and trade system could also bring some money to the poor countries which don’t use their whole emission cap and let them sell some of their allowance to the bigger industrial countries. This might eventually cause wealth in some less populated countries around the world getting money from the cap and trade system and give the bigger countries a bigger reason to create more and effective power resources to not get above their cap.
