What Can We Do to Slow or Stop Global Warming?

Assignment Question

Title: Halting the Rise of Global Temperatures Through Global Cooperation Introduction While rising global temperature cannot be stopped overnight and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere technology is not ready yet, there are certain things we can do to help slow down the process Body Paragraphs 1) Carbon budgeting A) A set limit amount of CO2 can be emitted B) Cut down on all fossil fuel infrastructure (coal power plants, oil wells, factories ET C) Apply it to the entire world 2) Switch to renewable/energy efficient sources A) Increase and invest in renewable sources (wind turbine, solar etc) B) Switch out diesel fuel vehicle to electric vehicle (tesla, electric buses) C) Look for energy star label for most energy efficient products (light bulbs/heater/ refrigerator ETC) 3) Conserve and rebuild A) Reforesting (Logos) B) Invent technology in reducing/slow down carbon dioxide to earth’s atmosphere C) Reduce and recycle any items ( 4) Counter argument: Rise of global temp cannot be stopped A) Rise of global temp cannot be stopped immediately B) Will take years/decades to take effect C) Even after hundreds of years, the climate will be different, but we need to do what is best for the future generation Please also add a so what sentence and a conclusion and use the sources below Fischetti, Mark. “There’s Still Time to Fix Climate–about 11 Years.” Scientific American, 12 Nov. 2021, www.scientificamerican.com/article/theres-still-time-to-fix-climate-about-11-years/.
