The role of sustainable energy education here cannot be overemphasized as it would increase the awareness of global warming while it gradually re-orientate the masses and make them more environmental friendly.
They should implement plans and international agreements on reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
For instance, the World Bank 2010 development Indicators puts it succinctly: “The poorest countries and regions face the greatest danger.
Africa – with the most rain-fed agricultural land of any continent, half its population without access to improved water sources, and about 70 percent without access to improved sanitation facilities – is particularly vulnerable to climate change”. In the United States, the views are “divided along ideological lines.” The Pew Research Center’s 2009 survey on global warming discovered that between the liberals and the conservatives, the former agree more than twice that global warming is a severe problem (about 66% vs. According to that survey, a similar divide is also evident in Britain.
Also to further reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, one can plant trees.
That is a very effective way of cutting down carbon-dioxide because during photosynthesis, they (trees) use-up carbon-dioxide and give out oxygen.
Attitudinal change is the key to achieving this and being more environmentally friendly.
Practical steps include the use of recyclable products and buying of goods with minimal packing as to reduce waste, using energy-efficient products, using less energy, heat and preventing air leakages in your room.
The resulting changes in weather “such as shifts in the intensity and pattern of rainfall and variations in temperature” would probably decrease agricultural/food output as a result of the death of the infrastructure; hence environmental disasters, like drought or flood, would displace people’s means of livelihood leading to poverty, migration and diseases. Global warming is indeed a major challenge for the world today.
Although the figures may vary between regions, most people all over the world, however, agree that it is a serious problem requiring urgent attention.
