Abstract:
Global warming has become the center of the international environmental law and policy and has rapidly become one of the main environmental issues. Most scientists believe that the global warming issues are caused by the increased amount of carbon dioxides (Co2) and other gases in the earth's atmosphere. Global warming has been made worse by economically developed countries or wealthier individuals but less affected by the negative impact of carbon emission by poor and developing countries. Nevertheless, these developing countries usually end up as victims of global warming due in the form of climate disaster. Therefore, the issue of global warming needs to be addressed from an early stage in order to safeguard life on our planet from the threat of future extinction. All stakeholders at local, state and international levels must take responsibility to overcome the global environmental problems. Therefore, this study aims to examine the rural community's sense of awareness of carbon emission at the local level. The study area is Taram Village which one of the rural community area within the Mukim of Kerdau, Pahang. The objectives of the study are to identify the level of awareness among the rural community about carbon dioxide emission and the impact of carbon dioxide emission on the rural community in Taram Village. The results showed that the rural community had a good social awareness about carbon dioxide emission and the carbon dioxide emission did not cause a significant impact on the rural community. Thus, all the stakeholders involved have to play an active role in maintaining a healthy environment to ensure the well-being of all the community members in Taram Village can be safeguarded.
