Friday December 4 2015 Notes for Final Stuff The reason Climate Change is hard to solve is because it s similar to a Tragedy of the Commons problem Hardin Commons are difficult problems to solve You have to uphold the ways of the Commons by force Ostrom keeps the Commons to small local levels Knowledge awareness of what goes on encouragement discouragement of certain activities by community Why are Commons a problem I mean it s a resource that a whole community can use Naturally individuals want to make the most out of their resource If everyone uses the Commons with their own individual goals in mind the Commons gets used up Most of what we talked about in class is that if Climate can be labeled as a Common we can use Hardin Ostrom et al to address Climate Change Friday December 4 2015 Keep in mind though that there are complications lf US and China create a deal and India is not in it it will become a major carbon emitter in the future then you have not solved the climate or Commons problem Also remember that big countries have a hard time solving these climate problems within themselves There are several reasons why but one of the the main ones is that most of the problems bleed into each other making it hard to really cover what is happening and how to solve it the best And don t forget the difficulty depending on where you live Due to Remember Climate change is happening The scientific consensus is that it is happening However public is a bit more split on the issue Remember that there are a number of reasons that people deny climate change both public and experts including The equality of debate in the US and the fact that we always present sides as a 5050 Many of the climate change deniers take this position to stand against government intervention Public is not as informed knowledgeable on climate change and its statistics Mckittrick not against climate he s just a statitian Denied the experimental papers of Mann on global warming not because he is a skeptic but because he wanted to make sure that all the information was correct Friday December 4 2015 Although it s hard to address the issue you can also just prepare for what s going to happen Ex Chicago they don t worry about trying to solve the issue they just want to be ready just in case something bad happens They don t want another massive dieoff due to a heat wave again where they did not have enough money to deal with the damages Not all cities will do the same when it comes to addressing these problems though which allows for more flexibility The city of Miami can have a completely different angle of approach compared to Chicago There isn t necessarily a connection between climate change and civil conflict One heat wave does not turn a Nigerian man into a religious extremist What does happen however is an increase in feasibility allowing these conflicts to happen A flood that destroys infrastructure does not create conflict but makes it easier for conflict to be created especially if it does something like prevent governments to push forward and stop rebe actions
