Greenhouse gas emissions can be greatly reduced
in many ways. Most solutions involve increasing the
efficiency of our energy use in order to reduce fossil fuel demand, while
maintaining or even improving our current lifestyles. Many of the potential
solutions have benefits beyond greenhouse gas reduction, like
increased employment, stimulation of the high-tech manufacturing, and reduced urban air pollution.
A combination of public interest and government sponsored programs can
make these solutions a reality, although scientists increasingly agree that a change of attitude amongst consumers will be of great help to ever achieve global CO2 reductions in time. For example: industry can reduce
emissions in flexible, cost-effective ways, which lowers the waste and
enhance long-term profits. A reduction in automobile use, improved
fuel efficiency standards, the use of solar or wind energy, and better public transport would reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and reduce urban air pollution at the same time. Many businesses and individuals worldwide are also looking into sustainable and climate-neutral production and operation methods.
