what is global warming
What is “Global Warming”?
  • Globalwarming : An increase in the average

temperature of the earth’s atmosphere, esp. a sustained increase sufficient to cause climatic change.

  • Climate change: a change

of climate which is attributed

directly or indirectly to human

activity that alters the

composition of the global

atmosphere and which is in

addition to natural climate variability

observed over comparable time periods(source : UNFCCC)

  • 18heat waves were reported in India within 10 yrs. (1980-1998)
  • In 1998 and 2003, China reported deaths over 4,000 cases from flash floods.

Strong Global Warming Observed

Global Average Near-Surface Temperatures since 1850-2007

Increased of temperatures in two decades average by 0.5°C

Average global temperature is expected to rise by 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade over the next 100 years


how do people produce global warming
How do people produce “Global Warming”?
  • Mainly in burning of fossil fuel since mid-18th century due to industrialization.
  • Releasing of carbon dioxide from incineration of waste and electricity generation.

greenhouse gases
Greenhouse Gases

Combustion of fossil fuels and forest fires

Water vapor

Protective layer in the upper atmosphere from UV radiation. If excessive produced caused air pollution such as smog & fog

Combustion of fossil fuels andploughing farm soils

Use of refrigerators, air conditioners, aerosol sprayand cleaning agents cause depletion of atmospheric ozone layer

Animal husbandry, irrigated agriculture and oil extraction

the vienna convention for the protection of the ozone layer
The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer

In 1981 the United Nations Environment Organization has established the legal and technical working group for drafting to achieve agreements in international treaties to resolve the damage called the Vienna Convention on ozone layer protection.

Contains a pledge to cooperate in research and surveillance data exchange volumeEmissions and destroy the ozone layer as well as control the operation of the Convention to the future with the Vienna Convention

The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer adopted in March 1985, entered into force, 1988 by 28 countries

the montreal protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer

To have negotiated the draft regulations and measures to prevent the destruction of the ozone layer under the Vienna Convention, which the draft was completed in the short time on 16 September 1987 at City Diamond Three Seasons of Canada in 47 countries worldwide,entered into force, 1989

Currently, 184countries around the world have jointly ratified the Vienna Conventionincluded Thailand

16 September is an Ozone Day

thailand s role
Thailand's role
  • Must take steps to reduce and stop using the substances in accordance with the specified period.
  • Must report the amount of controlled substance to UNEP who serves as the Secretariat of the Protocol.
  • Department of Industrial Works Ministry of Industry as the primary agency responsible conducted studies in amount of substances destroying the ozone layer in different industry sectors and the import volume controls destroying substances.
  • National Plan of Thailand: to stop using substances that destroy the ozone layer and prepared for the period of disuse substances destroying the ozone layer.

projected impacts of global warming in asia 1
Projected impacts of global warming in Asia (1)
  • Glacier melt in the Himalayas is projected to increase flooding, rock avalanches from destabilised slopes, and affect water resources within the next two to three decades. This will be followed by decreased river flows as the glaciers recede.
  • Freshwater availability in Central, South, East and Southeast Asia particularly in large river basins is projected to decrease due to climate change which, along with population growth and increasing demand arising from higher standards of living, could adversely affect more than a billion people.

Source: IPCC WGII Fourth Assessment Report, April 2007

projected impacts of global warming in asia 2
Projected impacts of global warming in Asia (2)
  • Coastal areas, especially heavily-populated mega-delta regions in South, East and Southeast Asia, will be at greatest risk due to increased flooding from the sea and in some mega-deltas flooding from the rivers.
  • Climate change is projected to impinge on sustainable development of most developing countries of Asia as it compounds the pressures on natural resources and the environment associated with rapid urbanisation, industrialisation, and economic development.

Source: IPCC WGII Fourth Assessment Report, April 2007

projected impacts of global warming in asia 3
Projected impacts of global warming in Asia (3)
  • Endemic morbidity and mortality due to diarrhoeal disease primarily associated with floods and droughts are expected to rise in East, South and Southeast Asia due to projected changes in hydrological cycle associated with global warming.
  • Increases in coastal water temperature would exacerbate the abundance and/or toxicity of cholera in South Asia.

Projected impacts of global warming in Asia

It is projected that crop yields could increase up to 20% in East and Southeast Asia while it could decrease up to 30% in Central and South Asia by the mid 21 st century. Taken together and considering the influence of rapid population growth and urbanization, the risk of hunger is projected to remain very high in several developing countries.

Climate Change: Study Impactto Thailand

Climate change tend to be :

higher and longer temperatures BUT not dryness

  • Slightly increasing temperature around 1-2 °C
  • Summer season will be longer 1-2 months
  • Winter season will be shorter 1-2 months
  • Rainy season remains unchanged BUTwater volume will increase 10-20%
  • Uncertain season interval changed dramatically ( Extreme scenario )

What if Climate Change effected Thailand?

Encourage to conduct various of continued-studies and brain storming

where are we now
Where are we now?
  • Joined the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC) .
  • Non-Annex1 categories : without commitment to reduced greenhouse gases.
  • Release greenhouse gases in small proportion compared to other countries
  • Nevertheless Global climate change impact in countryclimate change too.

to solve global warming


Remains unclear to reduce

greenhouse gas emissions

Control Global Temperature not to increase over 2 degrees C in averageto seriously reduce global climate change


Searching for consensus To reduce greenhouse gas

To defined framework and time frame in the preparation of new treaties.

Impacts in Thailand

Sea Level

Increasing sea-levels approximately 0.09 – 0.88 meters will lead to costal erosion.

ดร.จิรพล สินธุนาวา




Within 3 decades, country severely affected by climate change in the frequency of extreme weather events result Floods and storms, especially in eastern coastal lines and southern area near the ocean as well as Bangkok, Hadyai and Chiangmai.

Climate change may also affect diseases spread both human and animal/plants delta regions



Drought occurs in summer caused dryness reservoir, reduced crop yields.

Dryness affecting in crops produced caused farmers stress


Fog and Forest Fires

Long term high temperature has been rise in key air pollutants causes respiratory diseases.



Climate Change lead to variation in average country temperatures caused many hot days, heat waves continuity and flash floods and storm.

Urban heat island: temperature in urban higher than in rural both day and night time and every seasons.

Needs of power: for air-conditioning and refrigerators caused to massive electricity producing which effected to loss of water and dryness in summer.

Global Warming is Fever.

Who is getting alert?

Be aware but not scared


Hospital plan?

What you can do now?

2 basis : mitigation and adaptation

  • Mitigation : Use less energy and conserve more of it
  • Adaptation : Adjustment of public health response
  • Other strategies: Tree planting campaign, Kick start an environmental campaign etc.

How to save energy?

►Keep water in enough for a day used

►Do not plug in prior to using**

►Unplug after use immediately
