We are attempting to neutralize part of the carbon dioxide emission by increasing carbon dioxide absorption. This process of absorption creates an action that can be described as being carbon neutral. It is yet another idea which science has attempted to use to combat global warming which is a growing concern in today's society.
Global warming is real and we need to take action to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide being produced. We see the effects everywhere. Temperature changes, ice caps in the arctic melting leaving animals homeless and starving.
In an attempt to reduce these emissions the government and private sectors have implemented various methods of doing this. Offering incentives for people to convert their homes to natural gas. Working with manufacturing companies to find ways to lower their emissions.
Creating products that are environmentally friendly. International carbon trading systems. There has been great progress in manufacturing cars, which produce, lower carbon dioxide emissions. Cars and manufacturing companies are two of the largest producers of carbon dioxide and therefore a great deal of work is required on their part.
We need to continue and accelerate the rate at which treeplanting programs are introduced. This is of great benefit as trees absorb carbon dioxide while producing oxygen. This not only helps to create a carbon neutral process but helps our natural ecosystems by providing animals with a place to live.
A lot of emphasis has been put on public awareness. Changes that the government makes are not enough unless society is on-board. People need to be aware of the seriousness of global warming. This is not something that is going away.
People often think that only large corporations can do anything but we all have a part to play in this, we are all members of this human species. There are lots of things that we can do to combat carbon dioxide emissions and go some way to having a positive effect on global warming.
Building better insulated and more efficient homes reduce the amount of energy used in our daily life. The government now offers various incentives to use natural gas which also makes an energy efficient home. Use solar heating if possible. Recycling is also very important.
There are many other ways that we can directly effect global warming by creating a better carbon neutral environment. Take a close look at your footprint, which relates to the amount of carbon dioxide your lifestyle is generating. Make your footprint one that makes a difference...the children are counting on you.
