Should the average temperature of the earth be treated as a natural resource for all people? Why? (AS1)
Yes, the average temperature of the earth should be treated as a natural resource for all people because it is a basic pre requisite for the existence of human life on this planet. The average temperature of Earth is 13 degree Celsius, but it varies depending upon many factors.
It is the temperature that makes this planet a place to survive. A change in the climate would negatively affect natural resources. Other results include deforestation, industrialisation, global warming, and emission of poisonous gases. A rise of 20 C in the average temperature would result in a rise of one meter in sea level. This would adversely affect the coastal areas and millions of people .
Thus, the temperature is an extremely matter of concern.
