How Can You Slow Down Global Warming

In recent years, global temperatures have been increasing at an unprecedented rate, due to the steady release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Unless appropriate measures are taken to reduce the emission of pollutants, the emission of harmful pollutants into the air will continue to accelerate, causing irreversible damage to earth’s atmosphere as we know it. Slowing down global warming is an urgent task that demands immediate attention.
The principal contributor to global warming is the burning of fossil fuels and the release of carbon dioxide. By reducing dependence on fossil fuels and transitioning to cleaner, renewable sources of energy, such as solar, wind and geothermal power, we can reduce our emissions of carbon dioxide. In addition, we should drive and fly less and recycle more. Reducing consumption of goods and recycling should go hand in hand with reduced emissions.
Making sustainable lifestyle changes is not the only solution. Another important step is to start capturing and storing carbon by thinning out overstocked forests and restoring scrub land, wetlands and seabeds. Trees and other vegetation absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen, mitigating climate change. Planting trees and engaging in land management programs that come with ‘carbon credits’ are sound strategies for reducing global warming.
Sustainable development requires a comprehensive effort from both individuals and government authorities. Government authorities, for example, can develop incentives for citizens and companies to invest in projects that reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and promote sustainability. Tax reliefs and subsidies could encourage citizens, companies and other entities to invest in more environmentally friendly technologies and practices.
Currently, renewable energy sources are more expensive than conventional ones, and therefore more costly to develop. To alleviate this, government authorities should offer incentives to produce renewable energy sources and support research and development into renewable energy sources. By lowering the price of renewable energy, citizens and companies will become more willing to make the transition from conventional to renewable sources of energy.
In addition to reducing emissions and transitioning to renewable sources of energy, individuals should also be conscious of their daily interactions with nature. Taking public transportation instead of a car, bringing reusable bags to the store, growing edible gardens and using natural sunlight instead of artificial lighting are all easy daily changes that can make a difference in the long run.
In sum, slowing down global warming is an important task that demands our attention. We must take action now by making small, everyday changes and by investing in sustainable energy sources, while also encouraging government authorities and corporations to offer incentives. Only by taking action now can we ensure a sustainable future.
