Day by day, world has been being covered by natural disasters including droughts, floods, hurricanes and many more. When we consider about our day to day lives, our observances over natural surroundings around us, generally we all have a perception that there is something wrong with nature and something which has bad future effects has been happening. In world news, there are so many views regarding economic disturbances, famines, lack of harvest, food shortages and all other related phenomena.There are so many new type of epidemics, which are difficult to control. It’s obviously clear that system of the world or nature has been changing in harmful manner. As a result of that human beings have to suffer from economic, ecological and many other aspects. However, decades ago, environmental scientists identified this condition and called it as a global warming. Global warming word itself means simply increasing the temperature of earth’satmosphere. This condition happening as a result of excessive occurrence of greenhouseeffect. Greenhouse effect is caused by greenhouse gases like Sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methane, watervapor and etc. Naturalgreenhouse effect is good to maintain stable temperature in earth. However, as a result of industrial emotions of such gases, nowgreenhouse effect is being occurred excessively and this incident causes to global warming. Meanwhile, at the beginning, the term “global warming “became sarcastic to policy makers, even now US President Trumph is trying to withdraw from recently concluded Paris convention. In contrast, many US states pledged to work according to Paris convention despite the attitudes of President. Kyoto protocol was the major environmental global player before ratifying Paris convention. But, it’s a controversy about the success of Kyoto protocol due to the stubborn behavior of major industrial countries like US and China.Recently,while participating to “Annual Forum of Climate Action for Business, Investors and Policy Makers”, which was held in India,Patricia Espinosa,Executive Secretary on United Nations Framework on Climate Change emphasized that Paris agreement goals could not be achieved until everybody take part.So, in this moment it`s worthy to take a look on history of UN intervention toward climate discussions.
