Simple update to IEM Members or those who are practicing Engineering in MALAYSIA...
The atmosphere acts as an insulating blanket to keep the average temperature of our planet Earth within a pleasant ange. The green house effect on the trace gases of the atmosphere, such Carbon Dioxide, keep the heat near the Earth surface and keep out the cold of the outer space. The climate of Earth however is unstable and since the end of the ice age some 10,000 years ago, the average temperature of the Earth has increased steadily from a few degrees Centigrade to more than 15 degrees Centigrade. Since the Industrial Revolution, the Carbon Dioxide concentrations have increased from about 280ppm to 365ppm and the Earth temperature goes up as the Carbon Dioxide concentrations increase. The effect of global warming is a change in the climate and weather patterns which hastens the extinction of species, influence the lengths of seasons, cause coastal flooding, and lead to more frequent and severe storms. The response to global warming includes the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol which expires in 2012 by all countries except United States and Kazakhstan after the United Nations climate talk in December 2007. The solution to global warming is Carbon (Greenhouse Gases) Management and the strategy is three pronged, i.e. Policy, Education and Technology.
A talk on “TECHNOLOGY and GLOBAL WARMING’”, organized by Agricultural and food engineering technical division has been scheduled.
