Climate Change Regulation
With the more recognized concerns of environmental ethics and climate control since the 1970s, humans on Earth face greater consequences of health risks, air pollution, climate change, and depleting resources. As the human population grows even closer to the seven billion mark, humans are consuming more resources—especially in the more developed countries like the United States, Europe, Japan, and the rising China. Countries like India, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates, who hold the majority of the world’s resources, uses fewer resources than the more developed countries.

As an analogy, the Earth is kind of like a pigs cooling system. Pigs do not have sweat glands so they require the special attention of climate control. Pigs need air, not just air but fresh air for quality and sustainability of life, and water to help cool their temperatures. Just as Earth needs the wind to help regulate climate control throughout Earths atmosphere and also help tidal wave movement to create an inner part cooling system. I would not say that all the information I have read on Earths atmosphere condition is true, however; I would not undermine Earths present atmospheric condition either. I do think that some people do honestly care about our environment and have created the green revolution, however; I do also believe that some people could not care less about the environment and are going along with the green revolution. With this latter group the only green they care about is money and how much they can make. Either way, if he or she is participating in the green revolution or not Mother Earth will have the final say to the human race preservation of life.
Command and control regulations focus on preventing environmental problems by specifying how a company will manage a pollution-generating process. This approach generally relies on detailed regulations followed up by an ongoing inspection program. In the United States the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is a prime example of this kind of regulation. The advantage of command and control regulation is that it has reduced the emissions of air pollution dramatically, especially in California. However, the disadvantage of command and control regulation is that this technology can be more costly to companies than alternatives such as changing industrial processes to reduce emissions. The alternative to command and...
