Chapter 3; the global environment and foreign aid Section 1; severe effects of the global environment 21 st  century is the age of globalization. Lot of things are connected now all over  the world than ever. It means all the nations share the same good and bad. One  example of this same bad is the global climate disorder like the ozone depletion and the  global warming to name a few. These problems cannot ever be solved without globally  because these problems are not one country’s matter.  Severe consequences are expected to happen due to these global environmental  problems. As for the ozone depletion, it is speculated that the incidences of skin cancer  is going to skyrocket because of exposure to ultraviolet rays through the ozone holes  above both poles. These increased incidences of skin cancer can lead to huge medical  budgets in both developed and developing countries and low productivity of work force.  More seriously, it is reported that ultraviolet rays can change the composition of DNA,  leaving unpredictable effects on human and all the other living creatures. Another notorious global problem is the global warming. It is apparent that  this can be a potential cause of desertification becoming worse these days, rising sea  levels and massive climate change all over the world. It is well-known that this rising  sea levels can vanish little island countries  on Pacific Oceans. In addition to that,  desertification and global climate change can do great damage to agriculture all over
