Global warming and pollution are at the heart of news in the world today.
Pollution from carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is a major global problem. CO2 is mainly produced by burning carbon and fossils such as coal, gas, oil. CO2 is also produced by natural gas for necessary production such as transport, electricity, industry. Many countries and organizations are taking steps to reduce CO2 emissions, promoting renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, encouraging the transition to cleaner modes of transport and implementing policies to limit industrial emissions. However, the reduction of CO2 emissions remains a major challenge to be overcome in the fight against climate change.
In recent years, the consequences of pollution have been highlighted through many examples. Glacier decline is a recurring example. As a result of global warming and rising temperatures, many glaciers around the world are losing mass and melting faster than they regenerate through snow accumulation, causing them to retreat and shrink in size. This is a major concern because of its impact on freshwater resources, ecosystems and the increased risks of sea level rise.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, CO2 emissions have been increasing, stimulated by the rapid economic development of India, China and other emerging countries. Growing concerns around climate change have prompted many countries to commit to reducing their emissions.
Recently, therefore, in recent years, efforts have been made to reduce CO2 emissions through energy progress and new policies to limit industrial emissions. The results are not good, although the researchers are increasingly interested in the subject.
The data that can be found in free or on the internet show an overall increase in CO2 over time. International agreements like the Paris Climate Agreement aim to limit global warming by limiting emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
The challenge for the generations to follow is to limit, reduce CO2 emissions. Several strategies are possible to make our priority a success. First, focus on renewable energies (solar, wind). Improve energy efficiency (energy practices in industries). To promote sustainable transport, as well as international commitments. Finally implement government policies and regulations.
These strategies are at the heart of global efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.
