For many decades, global warming has been regarded as a global calamity owing to the disastrous effects it causes to the environment. When there is an increase in temperature of the environment, it leads to an imbalance of atmospheric components, hence resulting in global warming. Scientists are in agreement that global warming is either man-made or caused by natural factors such as emission of toxic greenhouse gases into the environment.

Nations develop at very different rates and resources and communications are widely exchanged worldwide. It is clear that some nations are simply better equipped and knowledgeable at managing resources than others. Regardless of present globalization and the ease of communication and exchange, clearly some countries have thrived and others are increasingly falling behind.
Wetlands are important ecosystems that are created where land and water meet, creating a “wetland” or marsh-like area. Water either covers the soil or is present at the surface of the ground during the vast majority of the year, making for a different ecology than areas where the ground is able to absorb water or where water completely covers soil year-round. Because of the special circumstances that create wetlands, very specific organisms and plants thrive there.
Global warming is the steady increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans and its projected continuation. Although painted through the media to be an imminent threat caused by human negligence and air pollution, there is also evidence that points to the contrary possibility that global warming is nothing more than an anomaly in weather patterns.
This economics problem focuses on the ideas of absolute and comparative advantage. Absolute advantage is when someone can produce a good using less resources than another person producing the same good. Comparative advantage is the principle that trade (i.e. multi-tasking) can be more beneficial if the parties involved each produce a different good with relative different costs.
