The changing global atmosphere and the changes in the climate are based on the actions taken by the people. The people all around the world, is responsible largely for the changes that are occurring in the atmosphere and the depletion and the disintegration of the processes. The greater impacts that are being discussed in the articles that have been provided are based on the notion of the ethics that is being compromised by the people (Steffen et al., 2015).
According to the authors, the change in the global climate has largely affected the scenario. Schmidt have noted that the modern thinking have differentiated between the involvement of the people with the nature (Schmidt, Brown & Orr, 2016). The modern thinking have enumerated and noted that people is not supposed to be correlated with the nature to which they belonged. From the ethical point of view, according to the article presented by Schmidt, people have a responsibility towards the environment where they exist. The depletion of the ozone and the emission of the half-burnt carbon is the cause behind the disintegration of the environmental phenomenon and the disruption of the natural cycle.
According to the article that is presented by Bruno Latour, the actions of the present generation regarding the over usage of the non-renewable resources and the activities like deforestation and the overpopulation will be creating a serious impact and make the coming generation face the existential crisis. The global climate change and the rising sea level is the major cause behind the disintegration of the earth’s processes (Latour, 2017). On the other hand, Clive Hamilton states the Earth System and its science of the development of the crisis. Earth System means the science of the whole of the earth more like a complex system, which is considered to be beyond the sum of its parts (Hamilton, 2015). Therefore, it implies that the implications that have led to the disintegration might not be caused due to the actions undertaken by the people of the earth.
