Globalisation or Killing The Globe?

By: Sharanya

Human lives are becoming more global with a global vision through interconnection and exchange of knowledge. Today, globalisation has influenced the world to move forward to cosmopolitanism by bringing compelling changes to the world.

A World With a Common Vision

Globalisation, the process of global integration of economic, financial, cultural, environmental and communication systems, has completely transformed the dynamics of the world in recent years by improving cultures and cultivating diversity while reducing differences. Shaking off the narrowness, we have the opportunity to compare our country with other countries. In this way, we enrich our manners, customs and habits. Globalisation also helps us to fight illiteracy and promotes education, gives us a clear knowledge of facts and things. Furthermore, it solves burning social problems like child labor, dowry, etc.We have successfully raised funds in this regard.


The benefits of science and technology have reached every corner of the world. People around the world are connected through cell phones and internet technology and it has improved our understanding of the world. A trader can “gather valuable information about various goods in different countries. First hand knowledge of people and things is very important in international business. With globalisation, a political leader can gather a great deal of useful knowledge about people and forms of government” around the world. Globalisation helps improve international relations and friendship between different nations. However, with all of this comes the imminent risk of environmental degradation. 

Globalisation: A Challenge and Solution to Climate Change

Globalisation is one of the main drivers of climate change. In recent decades, international connectivity has been strengthened in many aspects, including the flow of information, the flow of personnel, the business model, the flow of capital, the regulatory system, and cultural diffusion. The population, economy, companies and environment indices have grown exponentially. This is called great acceleration. Surprisingly, the resulting environmental impact is changing a significant part of the Earth system.  The current geological era is called the Anthropocene (successor to the Holocene)  to recognize the power that Homo sapiens has become, and to replace or distort the great natural global system of the earth, beyond the continuous human society, the safe range considered for biological well-being. 

Since 1975, the growth of children in Kenya has been retarded, indicating that the expected warming and drought will continue to occur with population growth, and food production and nutrition and health will be affected as regional food production, nutrition and health. Connected and interdependent, the impact of human activities on the environment has a wider geographical scope, although its impact can be offset by more effective global alerts and faster distribution of food aid. A third of the country’s wheat production and the ensuing grain export bans have led to a rise in world wheat prices, exacerbating hunger in Russia (the price of flour has risen by 20%) and low-income urban populations in countries such as Pakistan and Egypt. 

The country has become more industrialised and has increased the production of its goods to meet demand. These industries in turn emit various greenhouse gases, which are the main factors leading to climate change activities, so they are all warned and converted into a global unit. Atmospheric changes caused by various activities (such as production, transportation, agriculture, and consumer behavior) that emit large amounts of GHGs (greenhouse gases). Due to the accumulation of these gases, it gradually heats up. The effects of this climate change can lead to increased droughts, floods, rising sea levels, and extreme temperatures.

So, What’s Next?

Given that the IPCC stated that we only have 12 years to take action, can we take an adequate number of different actions in a timely manner? Here, additional public and private methods can also play an important role. With the rapid technological progress of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we will also be able to use new means to monitor, review and report on the progress (or lack of progress) of global, regional and industrial actions to protect the climate. Radical new forms of distributed information and transparency of disclosure in real time. Compared to the scale of the challenge, the impact of perceptions on the effectiveness of climate protection in the coming years, especially among young people. Greater transparency will increase awareness and only increase pressure to take action.
