What measures must be taken to combat climate change?
According to the statistics of 2015, the volume of carbon dioxide emissions resulting from human activities was estimated at about 35 to 37 billion tons annually.
As for the statistics of 2018, it is estimated that the volume of carbon dioxide production resulting from human activities is 185 times higher than volcanic emissions. They are really surprising statistics and show the role the sane person plays in his climate change activities.
Therefore, he must take measures to reduce climate change and pollution, among which are:
1- Reducing carbon emissions.
2- Using modern engines for transportation that do not cause gases, such as electric cars and mass transportation.
3- Encouraging the trend towards renewable energies such as sun and wind energy in transportation and energy production.
4- Increasing vegetation because plants consume carbon and increase oxygen in the atmosphere.
5- Converting carbon dioxide into rocks.
6- Educating citizens about the dangers of climate change and integrating them in the plans devoted to combating climate change.
7 - Filtering factory chimneys, such as passing factory smoke on pools of water with algae that use carbon and produce electricity, thus reducing the temperature increase in the atmosphere by half and preventing air pollution and emissions of harmful gases that increase climate change.
8- Increasing the populated area and redistributing the population equally to reduce the population density through the creation of new cities enjoying an infrastructure and renewable energy.
9- Recycling the waste properly and transferring it to the beneficial products.
10- Carbon pricing (carbon price setting) for companies to pay for the carbon they release to the air.
11- Ending fossil fuel subsidies with the low price of oil due to the Corona virus crisis, as this is a good opportunity to phase out fossil fuels.
12- Reducing the consumption of animal products and consuming greater quantities of plant products due to the large emissions produced by the animal sector, especially cows. As for the vegetable sector, it supports increased vegetation to reduce carbon to increase oxygen in the atmosphere.
In 2015, the Paris Climate Agreement was signed that aims to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that allows the ecosystem to adapt naturally to climate change and also aims to contain global warming in less than two degrees.
And it seeks to reduce it at 1.5 degrees.
