Global Warming – What is it? The concept of global warming was first introduced around 1880 with the appearance of Charles expedition. He proposed that “by means of a little increased precipitation, or some related method, we may regulate the atmospheric temperature of earth.” Less than one hundred years later, nearly every country in the world was involved in at least one extreme weather event (or at least the threat of one). The overwhelming weight of recent evidence and the predictions of scientists everywhere point to the conclusion that human activity is clearly leading to global warming. The recent political agreement in Paris to cut down carbon dioxide emissions to manageable levels is only the first step toward curbing global warming.
There are many different ways in which global warming can be controlled. Some experts suggest phasing out wood power, using fuels such as biofuels, planting trees to offset global warming, using nuclear energy, and switching to low-carbon fuels (such as natural gas and LPG). Multidisciplinary approach to global warming is necessary in order for these efforts to succeed. Many experts believe that the best way to cut down on or completely eliminate global warming is by implementing a series of specific activities in each geographic area. These activities involve more than one person at a time.
The United Nations Environment Program has launched a series of action plans focusing on global change. These plans focus on reducing carbon emissions, boosting renewable energy resources, promoting access to affordable energy, and decreasing waste. The program also provides information about current efforts in various countries and recommends ways that various countries can work together to reduce carbon emissions and improve the effectiveness of their national adaptation strategies. All worldwide offices have adopted a variety of strategies based on information from the World Wide Web and research done by multidisciplinary experts across the globe.
Specific activities that all worldwide office participate in include promoting “green building”. This involves the use of efficient and sustainable technologies in building construction and environmental design. Specific activities also include creating a “Green Web”, which provides details and data about the various green technologies that are being used at different parts of the world. Green technology includes biofuels, solar panels, wind turbines, geothermal power stations, and other alternative energy resources. Specific activities in the areas of water conservation, efficient use of land, and sustainable food chains are also carried out by offices.
There are a number of non-profit organizations that support the cause of global warming. In addition to funding projects in different countries, these organizations disseminate reports detailing the progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promote political action. Some of these projects include planting trees for fuel; using bioalcohols and pesticides; building roads and railroads that allow for greater mobility among people; recycling trash; and using and promoting composting to produce fertilizer. Some global warming groups also distribute clothing featuring slogans and designs that promote awareness.
Another important project done at the headquarters of each worldwide office involves their participation in a variety of events, conferences, and seminars to raise the consciousness of people all over the world. In addition to attending such events, worldwide offices help sponsor community-based projects and distribute newsletters. These newsletters and programs are distributed to people living all over the world and are designed to provide them with tips on how they can make a difference and what they can do to contribute to the fight against global warming. For a fee, these services and projects are offered to those who need them.
