1HUMAN ACTIVITY AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGEExecutive Summary:The aim of this report is to identify a contentious issue and mention about the differentstakeholders currently debating the issue. The report also includes a reflective statement based onthe peer feedback which has been provided. In this report the chosen contentious issue is “IsHuman activity primarily responsible for Global climate change”. The main points which areusually stated in the discussion on the global climate change are mentioned and the utility of thepeer feedback is also discussed.

3HUMAN ACTIVITY AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGEIntroduction:The expected weather of a particular place or that of the planet as a whole, refers toclimate change. At the time when there are changes in the normal expected weather, these arereferred to as climate changes. There may be several reasons for the climate change overdifferent scales of time and over several other geographical regions. In the present times, globalwarming and human’s impact on the climatic system by the enhancement of the greenhouseeffect have put light on the fact that human beings are responsible for climate changes. In the lasthundred years, the surface of the earth and lowest part of the atmosphere has gotten warm by halfof a centigrade (Urry 2015).The increase of atmospheric “green house gases”, the increased amount of pollution hasraised the concern that human activities and climate changes are interrelated. There are otherreasons for the change in climate including “changes in the amount of energy from the Sun,shifting patterns of ocean circulation” among others. Despite this, evidence shows that there is adiscernable influence of human activity on the global weather (Bellard, C., et al. 2012).Engaging stakeholders for Climate policy:At the time when “clean energy policies” are implemented by multiple state agenciesthey are much more likely to achieve the set goals for the environment, by being more likely toachieve goals. At the time when clean energy is used for the reduction of the greenhouse gasesemissions, “the states have found it helpful to reach out to the government entities” in the stateswhich are “typically implicated in the decision of promotion of clean energy”. The states are alsoinvolved in the deployment and those in the climate, energy and environmental policies
