Global Problem

Solutions to global issues generally require cooperation among nations. Global Issues, Hite, and Seitz emphasize that global issues are qualitatively different from world affairs which the previous arise from growing international interdependencies which makes the problems themselves interdependent. It is speculated that our global interconnectedness, rather than (only) making us more resilient, makes us more susceptible to global catastrophe. Overconsumption may be a situation where resource use has outpaced the sustainable capacity of the ecosystem. A prolonged pattern of overconsumption results in environmental degradation and therefore the eventual loss of resource bases.
