The Research Problem
1. Background of the study
Awareness is defined as the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns. In this level of consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something. Nowadays there are a lot of issues that you can see in the news, written in the tabloids and from the internet. In contemporary society, the climate change is one of the most important issues that have impacts in many aspects in human's daily life. Climate change has its causes; there are some people who are not knowledgeable enough about these. If you are going to ask some high school students about the causes of climate change, surely they will answer green house gases, which is a known or famous answer. Some of them are not aware that this issue is from two aspects which are the natural and the anthropogenic causes. This research will be conducted to find out the level of awareness of students in the causes of climate change and to know what guidelines could be made for the college students to improve the level of awareness on causes of climate change. The researchers are motivated to pursue this study since they believe that the findings will help the readers to gain more knowledge about climate change.
1.2 A. Statement of the problem
