Solutions to Global Warming

Solutions to Global Warming
There are many solutions to reduce the amount of green house gases in the atmosphere, which causes Global Warming. A main culprit for global warming is the use of CFC?s (chlorofluorocarbons). If the use of CFC?s was reduced, the number of greenhouse gases will be reduced by a great deal (however there are many other thing that cause dramatic amounts of greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide). The items that contain CFC?s are regular house hold items, but they can have a devastating effect on the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. They are found in aerosols, plastic foam and fridges. However now that the scientists have a greater knowledge on the effect of CFC?s the government had banned the selling of objects with CFC?s in; and also great care is needed when disposing of older items containing CFC?s e.g. fridges. CFC?s are 40 times more effective as a greenhouse gas then carbon dioxide. So reducing the amount of CFC?s used will have a good effect on the atmosphere by causing less damage. This is something that all the governments across the world need to take into consideration before it is to late
Deforestation of tropical rainforests like the Amazon causes the amount of carbon dioxide in the air to increase, due to less photosynthesis taking place. Also when these trees are cut down they are then burnt which also adds to the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. So reducing the amount of trees cut down each year in rainforests like the Amazon will have a massive affect on the CO² levels in our atmosphere. However this may cause problems such as Brazil wanting money from logging and mining etc. therefore trees will need to be cut down. To overcome this problem though sustainable forestry could be taken into consideration, where for every tree cut down one or even two new trees are planted. The best way of reducing the output of carbon dioxide is to reduce the amount of fuel which being burnt, by exploring other ways of producing energy such as using wind turbines or solar panels. Encouraging people to become more energy efficient helps too, by buying washing machines, refrigerators and other machines that are more energy efficient. Newer washing machines consume a third of the amount of energy compared to the models made 15 years ago. People can save energy without having to pay a great deal, in doing so the emission of power from power stations would be able to reduce by half. By doing these simple things the amount of fossil fuels burnt will be able to be reduced and would therefore minimise the amount of greenhouse gases. ? Using lower energy light-bulbs ? These light bulbs use half the energy of normal light bulbs but give the same amount of light. ? Using public transport more ? using public transport more will reduce the amount of cars on the road and therefore reduce the amount of exhaust fumes excreted by cars. ? Better insulation in homes ? central heating will be reduced due to more heat being able to be kept in. In conclusion I think that there are many simple methods which people need to take in consideration to prevent Global Warming. There should be more emphasis on the dangers of Global warming and how devastating it could eventually be. CFC?s are the most effective of all the greenhouse gases and products contain it need to be abolished. Britain has introduced a law stating that the selling of cfc products is illegal; this idea should be introduced world wide though. For example large ledc counties like China and India need to be educated and persuaded by financial incentive to adopt the measures used in Britain to reduce Global Warming. If all the solutions that I have mentioned were taken into consideration the amount of greenhouse gases will reduce by a vast amount. This responsibility is down to the governments of the world and international governments like the UN, who can make countries lower their emission of greenhouse gases and help to stop Global Warming.
