Global warming has always been an issue. Of course, all of us have learned everything about global warming but most of us have never taken a single step to stop it. Did you know unwanted pollution and smoke are the major causes of global warming and unfortunately the reverse climate change too? We actually have to decrease the amount of heat trapped releases and emissions that we are just wrapping up with the atmosphere.
Why we need to take an initiative?
In the old times, the technology wasn’t that advanced to trap and wrap these hazardous emissions. But today, the technology has become our lone and sole partner for anything and everything. We do have some practical and techie solutions that will help us to stop or at least reduce global warming and save humanity. As individuals we need to reduce carbon emissions. But what about the other factory releases and industrial wastes? Obviously, our elected leaders can help in significantly addressing the threat and stop global warming and reverse climate change.
We can stop it by taking some minor steps. Below listed are the top-ranked solutions, marked as the best ones by the experienced environmentalists as per the reports.
Smart solutions to stop global warming and reverse climate change
1. Increase the use of renewable energy
It could be one of the smart global initiatives if bought into the spotlight. Using renewable energies to fill the fuel needs would certainly reduce the use of coal, fuels and other pollution-causing emissions. These renewable energies will majorly transform our entire energy system into the less pollutant place. If used instead of fossil fuels and coals, they can do a lot more benefit to the environment. Let us be less dependent on these hazardous fuels for our needs.
2. Go green
Let us stop cutting those oxygen-giving trees. We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Trees exhale oxygen and inhale carbon dioxide. Oxygen is the sole gas which helps us to breathe every single second. We are alive not because of the food we eat, but because of the oxygen that we breathe, released by the trees. These trees inhale the carbon dioxide that we release.
When we cut trees and give those lands to factories and industries, the oxygen part or emissions get decreased as there are fewer trees. This also affects the carbon dioxide that we release. Then what happens? As there are no trees to inhale our carbon oxides, these carbon gases just try to get released with the help of ozone layers and these, unfortunately, causes global warming.Do you still think we should cut trees and give those spaces to industries? Let us plant trees!
3. Reduce waste
The waste is the major contributor to global warming, of course, both indirectly and directly. When we decompose the industrial waste or factory waste, landfills start to produce the most hazardous gases like methane. Instead of decomposing these wastes, why not recycle them and make use of it to anything? We can yet reduce the consumption patterns and reusing things can reduce carbon emissions, as there won’t be any need to manufacture new items. We really need to start practicing these at least on an individual basis.
4. Air filters
Want to reduce carbon emissions? Try using fresh air filters every now and then. Did you know timely replacement of air filters can actually reduce approximately 2000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year? Air freshener is no fresher? Just replace it with the new one. Breathe fresh air every day, every second. This individual step can actually make a great difference. Try it!
5. Save water
Major cities generally consume plenty of energies in the cleaning and the distributing process of water. This also contributes significantly to the emission of greenhouse gases, certainly global warming. Once we start saving water, the amount of energy that is used in the process gets reduced. These are some basic solutions that can make major differences in saving our planet. Just replace the leaky tanks and pipes. Close the tap when not in use. Grow more trees, if you have a big yard or a property with effective soil.
6. Tax the carbon emissions
This could be the best global initiative. When you price or tax such hazardous wastes and emissions, the releases can probably reduce without any second question. The industries will actually shift to other chemicals and less harmful gases. This can majorly bring upon a positive effect on the carbon emissions and indirectly on global warming and reverse climate change. Many a time’s industries and the factories dump their waste without charging any such taxes. Hence, once the tax has been imposed on these, they probably won’t pay for dumping waste. This will force them to recycle the waste and use it for something.
7. No vehicles that run on fuels
These non-degradable or pollution causing fuels are utilized in the vehicles that we generally use. Let us try stopping the production or manufacturing of these category vehicles that run on fuels and coals. This will surely help the production company and the people. Once there are renewable energies instead of fossil fuels and coals, there would be less or zero pollution caused in the environment. People will be safe from diseases that are caused by pollution and other similar allergies. Moreover, money will be saved. The fuel and coal charges will be ultimately saved. Just try vehicles that run on renewable energies and it will make a great difference. Yes, let us make some changes to this beautiful world.
The above mentioned are the best smart solutions that would actually help the people and the environment both in getting rid of these pollutants and most importantly global warming and reverse climate change effects. There are more solutions that will help, but however, let us start applying these simple rules to our daily lives and let us wait for the change and the differences to happen.
