3. Climate change is a problem that affects the whole world. Currently there are also a wide range of solutions to mitigate climate change. One of these solutions is the injection of sulfur particles into the stratosphere in order to deflect some of the sun’s rays and cool the planet. Should international leaders, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or United Nations, focus primarily on sulfur particles as the way to combat climate change?

                            Climate change has been making headlines these recent years. It has accelerated due to both human and natural causes. Natural climate forcing factors include solar radiation and mountain building while human factors pertain to deforestation and burning of fossil fuels. Climate change has been an alarming cause for concern as both humans and the environment are now suffering from the impacts of climate change which will lead to catastrophic consequences if left untreated. This has urged the United Nations and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to churn out a myriad of solutions to curb this problem. One such solution is the injection of sulphur particles into the stratosphere. However, this should not be the primary focus of the international leaders as this might cause high dependency leading to reduced efforts to decrease emissions, neglect other persisting environmental problems and lastly, reduce cooperation between UN member countries in combating climate change as a collective effort.

                        Focusing mainly on infusing sulphur into the stratosphere will lead to over dependency   and stem efforts to reduce carbon emissions by countries. It is understood that this method will not be a financial burden and is efficient in reducing the global temperature. Adopting this solution would reduce global average temperature rise 100 times more than cutting down emissions. (ibid. pg 426, Para 2) It will be efficient in the sense that only a few...
