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.
