The U. S. Needs a Unified Global Warming Agency, As Other Nations Have

Mar 31st, 2014 | By | Category: Climate Change

The previous post detailed the distributed administrative structures dealing with global warming in the U. S. government. It identified several problems and difficulties arising from this situation.

Here, ministries and departments dealing with global warming in the European Union and selected countries around the world are examined. Among the countries examined, those in the developed world have a single ministry, or at most two, dedicated to the global warming issue and related concerns. These structures effectively focus administrative effort on this topic in these countries.

It is concluded that the U. S. should revise its scattered administrative structure for dealing with global warming by establishing a cohesive cabinet-level department or agency. The new entity would beneficially address global warming effectively: characterizing its worsening effects, and developing policies for mitigation and adaptation to its impacts.
