How Can Global Warming Be Reduced Or Prevented

The effects of global warming can no longer be ignored—it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the devastating effects of our own actions on the environment. While many are aware of the frightening reality of global warming, undeniably, individuals, businesses and governments need to do more to reduce or prevent the damage.

According to the U.N. Climate Change report, the sea level has risen approximately 8 inches since 1880, causing a drastic increase in coastal flooding. In addition, air temperatures have risen around the world and are projected to rise 6 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit higher in the coming decades—meaning devastating storms and a significant loss of biodiversity. This means that significant steps must be taken in order to deal with this dilemma, and it is imperative that we consider both the positive and negative implications of our actions.

We must begin by recognizing the role of humans in exacerbating the situation—fossil fuel burning, industrial and agricultural activities have generated vast amounts of greenhouse gases, leading to the warming of the Earth’s average temperature. As such, we must shift our strategies and invest in solutions that address the root cause of the global warming issue.

One such solution is renewable energy. Utilizing renewable sources, such as wind and solar, can replace the use of fossil fuels by providing cleaner and more sustainable alternatives. Renewable energy sources will also reduce global emissions, leading to decreases in smog and acid rain, as well as a decrease in global warming. Additionally, it will also be beneficial for our economic stability, as energy investment in renewable energy sources represent a much more economical long-term approach than reliance on fossil fuels.

However, addressing climate change also requires changes to our lifestyles, especially in areas such as transportation and consumption patterns. Innovations in sustainable transportation solutions such as electric or hybrid cars, or public buses and high-speed trains, can provide an effective alternative for commuters. By doing so, we can reduce our consumption of fossil fuels and subsequently cut the amount of greenhouse gases produced.

Moreover, consumers must work together to make environmentally conscious purchases when they can. Science informs us that if individuals opt to buy products with more eco-friendly packaging, or purchase products produced with sustainable techniques and materials, they can contribute to the fight against global warming.

It is clear that we can no longer afford to ignore the drastic increases in global temperatures and sea levels. As such, it is imperative that we focus our attention on solutions that combat global warming and work toward creating a more sustainable and environmentally conscious lifestyle. By wise action and collaboration between policymakers, businesses, and individuals, global warming can be successfully reduced or prevented.
