Industrialization and its Backlash: Focus on Climate Change and its Consequences

Chigbo A. Mgbemene, Chidozie C. Nnaji and Chekwubechukwu Nwozor

Abstract:
Industrialization has always seemed to be the key to wealth and better living but in reality, it has been shown that, although it leads to better conditions of living in certain respects, it affects environment and ultimately contributes to climate change. Industrialization not only involves technological innovations, it also involves economic and social transformation of the human society. With industrialization come opportunities as well as challenges. The challenges include coping with higher temperatures, extreme weather conditions, changing human life styles and changing philosophies. Due to these challenges, industrialization must take into account climate change and its consequences. For example, changing human life styles and philosophies have major impacts on environment and this has to be considered. This study examines the links between industrialization and climate change and attempts to address some arguments, which always come up when the effects of human activities on climate change is discussed.
