Description
Summary:This thesis investigates the environmental and political background of the climate changes taking place on the globe. I will demonstrate that the government of the United States have not taken all the required measures to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, which is the most significant cause of the global warming. I will prove will well-documented facts that the changes have started, and in spite of this, Bush and his administration have rejected to ratify the Kyoto Protocol due to economic interests. This can easily lead to irreversible processes in the environment.
