Protecting our homes and our families is our responsibility. Perhaps, we humans are still not aware of the bigger responsibility that we have on our shoulders. Being able to afford a place for living and taking care of it is our ultimate responsibility. But without planet earth everything is useless. We have forgotten resources for future generations and the consequences of this have resulted in global warming.
There are numerous solutions to global warming such as, investing in geothermal energy to supply electricity but this requires usage of water which itself is reducing due to the water consumption on daily basis. However, the solution that can reduce global warming should have the constraints of being cheap and should focus on renewable

Building better ventilation systems is where energy efficiency is conserved, in the article increasing efficiency of building systems and technologies, “In some climates and at certain times of the year, natural ventilation can be used to introduce fresh air using natural circulation or fans. Good building design, carefully chosen orientation, windows that open, and ridge vents are some of the many strategies that can be used.32 Economizers are devices that bring in fresh air when appropriate and can reduce cooling loads by 30% when operated by a well-designed control system”(energy.gov). Building efficiency is essential to help reduce global warming since due to globalization rapid increase in infrastructures has accounted for, “about 76%* of electricity use and 40% of all U.S. primary energy use and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making it essential to reduce energy consumption in buildings in order to meet national energy and environmental challenges and to reduce costs to building owners and tenants” …show more content…
Geoengineering might be beneficial in the means of stopping the carbon dioxide emissions to increase over the years but this cure to the disease is much worse than the disease itself, as Alan Robock describes. In the article, 20 reasons why geoengineering is a bad idea, increased ocean acidification, ozone depletion and the effects on planation are labeled as the biggest threats geoengineering introduces. Spraying sulfate aerosols into the stratosphere correlates to the reduction in solar radiation and diffusion radiation that exposes the impacts on vegetation. Plants are dependent on diffusion radiation which provides assistance to photosynthesize more efficiently and increases their ability to absorb carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere. “About half of all excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is removed by ocean uptake and continued acidification threatens the entire oceanic biological chain, from coral reefs right up to humans” (Robock
