Atmospheric greenhouse gases such as CO_2, CH4, N_2O ect increased since industry revolution. Serious global environmental problems, such as sea level rising, vegetation and production change, desertification, and frequently natural disaster ect have already appeared.
However, on the other hand, because of unreasonable international economic order and growth style in history, there is a very strong pressure to both global economic growth and environment and resources, which lead to a series of global environmental problems.
Households' consumption activities are an important contributor to global environmental problems,and research on food-carbon consumption are suggested to be an important content in promoting sustainable household consumption.
With the progress of science and technology, the means, methods and management level of environmental monitoring has improved continually while the global environmental problem has increasingly outstood and environmental protect has flourished.
Recently, accompanying with the development of industrialization, global environment issue (GEI) has becoming ever-increasingly serious and its impacts on international societies have been expanded to various aspects of international politics, economy and culture, which have made GEI a vital international problem threatening the survival and growth of human being.
Policies and programs designed to achieve sustainable development and human health, as one of the main components for sustainability, require understanding of global environmental issues and their regional and local implications.
Present global environmental issues will be solved by resourceful energy technology and waste management under a minimum pollution of environment.
The materials technology will play an important role to mitigate the global environmental issues.
To mitigate future global environmental issues, traditional materials technology should be reconstructed to build environment benign materials technology which could provide minimum environmental load.
This paper uses a coalition formation model to explore how equity considerations affect countries' cooperation on global environmental issues, e.g.
Global environmental problems and the strategic choice of technology
Recent widespread attention to the issue of global environmental problems, particularly climatic change, is leading to a re-examination and expansion of the traditional narrow definition of "international security".
Co-operation and Unilateral Commitment in the Presence of Global Environmental Problems
This paper focuses on the link between group co-operation and unilateral commitment of some countries in the presence of global environmental problems.
The relevance of the principles and the practice to the assessment of regional and global environmental problems is discussed and suggestions made for their review.
