Discovering a solution to the problem of greenhouse effect is currently vital. This essay will suggest several ways to deal with it.
In order to prevent global warming, it is crucial to reduce fossil fuel burning for producing electricity necessary to heat and light households. Nowadays, developed countries such as China and India receive the most significant part of their energy from burning charcoal and natural gas releasing enormous amount of CO2 into the atmosphere. There are several alternatives to hydrocarbons; the most effective ones are renewable energy and nuclear power. Clean energy, for instance solar and wind as well as nuclear, is commonly used in many countries and it has become a reliable source of electricity.
The second method to diminish greenhouse effect is to limit oil usage. Oil is mainly used as fuel for cars and other vehicles. The preferable way to avoid CO2 emission in this case is to increase number of electric cars.There are several car manufacturers which produce fast and eco-friendly electric and hybrid automobiles, which can become more affordable soon. Other than cars, there are also solar powered aircrafts, one of which has recently finished its flight around the globe. Such type of technology should be supported and developed in order to provide the mankind with clean means of transportation.
Penultimately, recycling is a key solution to the global warming crisis. A number of countries do not recycle their waste; instead it is being stored and burnt releasing carbon dioxide into the air. Recycling will reduce the emission; in addition, using garbage as biofuel can become an alternative source of energy.
To sum up, the problem of global warming should not be underestimated as it may have devastating consequences in the foreseeable future, and therefore, it should be dealt with urgently.
