Abstract

Global Warming, the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the earth’s atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the earth’s climate forever. Anthropogenic global warming refers to the increase in the average temperature of the earth’s near surface air and oceans in recent decades because of human induced actions. Anthropogenic global warming is a worldwide environmental problem not only affecting the nature, but it also affects the life and homes of millions of people. Anthropogenic global warming can be minimized to a great extent, if we eliminate the causes which are mostly human made. The responsibility of controlling anthropogenic global warming rests both on individual as well as the state. The present investigation was conducted to study the attitude of higher secondary school teachers towards controlling anthropogenic global warming. Normative survey was conducted among 390 higher secondary school teachers of various schools of Kannur, Thrissur and Trivandrum districts. The tool used for the study was Attitude Scale towards Controlling Anthropogenic Global Warming. The findings of the study reveal that higher secondary school teachers are having average attitude towards controlling anthropogenic global warming. It was also found that there exists a significant difference in the attitude of Science and Non Science teachers towards controlling anthropogenic global warming and there exists no significant difference in the attitude of higher secondary school teachers when analysed on the basis of sub sample gender, locale and type of management. Keywords: Global warming, Anthropogenic global warming, Environmental problem.
