Global Warming and its Cause: Natural Science, Social, and Religious Perspective (Literature Study)


One of the impacts of global warming is that it occurs due to an imbalance in natural systems and does not occur by itself. Humans, as the bearers of the mandate to care for the earth, are responsible for non-natural changes on earth. This literature review aims to determine the factors that influence changes in human thinking and behavior in responding to climate change as a result of human behavior, taking into account the factors of adherence to local wisdom, leader policies, and religious intervention. Themethod used was the library research approach. This method explores deeply through documents, journals, books, and others. The data in this study were obtained from library materials. This literature study discusses global warming and its causes from the perspectives of natural, social, and religious sciences. First, to preserve the environment and to remember the human mandate to maintain this grace of Allah that needs to be inherited as a culture of clean and healthy living. Second, human behavior is also influenced by social factors. Third, the legality factor from the government and religious fatwas with the issuance of various decrees related to environmental control is certainly a reinforcement. The conclusion is that the global climate change has a pretty serious relationship if we look at it from the perspectives of science, social, and religious ethics.
