The question might be best approached by considering ways to reduce our use (either directly or indirectly) of fossil fuels . Lots of coal is used to generate electric power. Electrical energy conservation is a must. Recycling is important. It keeps the planet clean(er) and saves energy to produce …new product (in most cases). The other thing we can probably do is look at our transportation situation . Vehicular contributions to the buildup of greenhouse gases are huge. If we, as individuals, can reduce our driving in some way, this will make a positive contribution to the equation. There is more to this if one thinks it through. Remember that there are (a ton of) things we buy that are made or processed using electricity or moved using petroleum . Most of them, in fact. Anything we buy, be it food or clothing items, has what is called a "carbon footprint" associated with the manufacture, processing, packaging and transportation to market of the product. That could be electric power used in making or packing the item, or the petroleum used to bring it to the market. Whether it's a sweater or a head of cabbage, it takes energy to get that product from its point of origin to a point where you can pick it up. A: . The simplest thing to start with is fit energy saving light bulbs and turn them off when not in use. . Turn off electrical equipment such as TVs stereos and computers rather than leaving them on standby. . In winter turn the heating down a degree or two and wear a sweater/undershirt, and in the summer turn the A/C up a degree or two. (Shopping malls take note) . These simple actions not only help save the planet but save on our electricity bills too. . We can also recycle, reuse, and reduce many things. A: 50 ways of helping our environment: . Replace a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (cfl) CFLs use 60% less energy than a regular bulb. This simple switch will save about 300 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. We recommend you purchase your CFL bulbs at 1000bulbs.com, they have great deals on both screw-in and plug-in light bulbs. . Install a programmable thermostat Programmable thermostats will automatically lower the heat or air conditioning at night and raise them again in the morning. They can save you $100 a year on your energy bill. . Move your thermostat down 2Â° in winter and up 2Â° in summer Almost half of the energy we use in our homes goes to heating and cooling. You could save about 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year with this simple adjustment. . Clean or replace filters on your furnace and air conditioner Cleaning a dirty air filter can save 350 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. . Choose energy efficient appliances when making new purchases Look for the Energy Star label on new appliances to choose the most energy efficient products available. . Do not leave appliances on standby Use the "on/off" function on the machine itself. A TV set that's switched on for 3 hours a day (the average time Europeans spend watching TV) and in standby mode during the remaining 21 hours uses about 40% of its energy in standby mode. . Wrap your water heater in an insulation blanket You'll save 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year with this simple action. You can save another 550 pounds per year by setting the thermostat no higher than 50Â°C. . Move your fridge and freezer Placing them next to the cooker or boiler consumes much more energy than if they were standing on their own. For example, if you put them in a hot cellar room where the room temperature is 30-35ÂºC, energy use is almost double and causes an extra 160kg of CO2 emissions for fridges per year and 320kg for freezers. . Defrost old fridges and freezers regularly Even better is to replace them with newer models, which all have automatic defrost cycles and are generally up to two times more energy-efficient than their predecessors. . Don't let heat escape from your house over a long period When airing your house, open the windows for only a few minutes. If you leave a small opening all day long, the energy needed to keep it warm inside during six cold months (10ÂºC or less outside temperature) would result in almost 1 ton of CO2 emissions. . Replace your old single-glazed windows with double-glazing This requires a bit of upfront investment, but will halve the energy lost through windows and pay off in the long term. If you go for the best the market has to offer (wooden-framed double-glazed units with low-emission glass and filled with argon gas), you can even save more than 70% of the energy lost. . Get a home energy audit Many utilities offer free home energy audits to find where your home is poorly insulated or energy inefficient. You can save up to 30% off your energy bill and 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. Energy Star can help you find an energy specialist. . Cover your pots while cooking Doing so can save a lot of the energy needed for preparing the dish. Even better are pressure cookers and steamers: they can save around 70%! . Use the washing machine or dishwasher only when they are full If you need to use it when it is half full, then use the half-load or economy setting. There is also no need to set the temperatures high. Nowadays detergents are so efficient that they get your clothes and dishes clean at low temperatures. . Take a shower instead of a bath A shower takes up to four times less energy than a bath. To maximize the energy saving, avoid power showers and use low-flow showerheads, which are cheap and provide the same comfort. . Use less hot water It takes a lot of energy to heat water. You can use less hot water by installing a low flow showerhead (350 pounds of carbon dioxide saved per year) and washing your clothes in cold or warm water (500 pounds saved per year) instead of hot. . Use a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible You can save 700 pounds of carbon dioxide when you air dry your clothes for 6 months out of the year. . Insulate and weatherize your home Properly insulating your walls and ceilings can save 25% of your home heating bill and 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. Caulking and weather-stripping can save another 1,700 pounds per year. Energy Efficient has more information on how to better insulate your home. . Be sure you're recycling at home You can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide a year by recycling half of the waste your household generates. . Recycle your organic waste Around 3% of the greenhouse gas emissions through the methane is released by decomposing bio-degradable waste. By recycling organic waste or composting it if you have a garden, you can help eliminate this problem! Just make sure that you compost it properly, so it decomposes with sufficient oxygen, otherwise your compost will cause methane emissions and smell foul. . Buy intelligently One bottle of 1.5l requires less energy and produces less waste than three bottles of 0.5l. As well, buy recycled paper products: it takes less 70 to 90% less energy to make recycled paper and it prevents the loss of forests worldwide. . Choose products that come with little packaging and buy refills when you can You will also cut down on waste production and energy use... another help against global warming. . Reuse your shopping bag When shopping, it saves energy and waste to use a reusable bag instead of accepting a disposable one in each shop. Waste not only discharges CO2 and methane into the atmosphere, it can also pollute the air, groundwater and soil. . Reduce waste Most products we buy cause greenhouse gas emissions in one or another way, e.g. during production and distribution. By taking your lunch in a reusable lunch box instead of a disposable one, you save the energy needed to produce new lunch boxes. . Plant a tree A single tree will absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime. Shade provided by trees can also reduce your air conditioning bill by 10 to 15%. The Arbor Day Foundation has information on planting and provides trees you can plant with membership. . Switch to green power In many areas, you can switch to energy generated by clean, renewable sources such as wind and solar. In some of these, you can even get refunds by government if you choose to switch to a clean energy producer, and you can also earn money by selling the energy you produce and don't use for yourself. . Buy locally grown and produced foods The average meal in the United States travels 1,200 miles from the farm to your plate. Buying locally will save fuel and keep money in your community. . Buy fresh foods instead of frozen Frozen food uses 10 times more energy to produce. . Seek out and support local farmers markets They reduce the amount of energy required to grow and transport the food to you by one fifth. Seek farmer's markets in your area, and go for them. . Buy organic foods as much as possible Organic soils capture and store carbon dioxide at much higher levels than soils from conventional farms. If we grew all of our corn and soybeans organically, we'd remove 580 billion pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere! . Eat less meat Methane is the second most significant greenhouse gas and cows are one of the greatest methane emitters. Their grassy diet and multiple stomachs cause them to produce methane, which they exhale with every breath. . Reduce the number of miles you drive by walking, biking, carpooling or taking mass transit wherever possible Avoiding just 10 miles of driving every week would eliminate about 500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions a year! Look for transit options in your area. . Start a carpool with your coworkers or classmates Sharing a ride with someone just 2 days a week will reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by 1,590 pounds a year. eRideShare.com runs a free service connecting north American commuters and travelers. . Don't leave an empty roof rack on your car This can increase fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 10% due to wind resistance and the extra weight - removing it is a better idea. . Keep your car tuned up Regular maintenance helps improve fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. When just 1% of car owners properly maintain their cars, nearly a billion pounds of carbon dioxide are kept out of the atmosphere. . Drive carefully and do not waste fuel You can reduce CO2 emissions by readjusting your driving style. Choose proper gears, do not abuse the gas pedal, use the engine brake instead of the pedal brake when possible and turn off your engine when your vehicle is motionless for more than one minute. By readjusting your driving style you can save money on both fuel and car mantainance. . Check your tires weekly to make sure they're properly inflated Proper tire inflation can improve gas mileage by more than 3%. Since every gallon of gasoline saved keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, every increase in fuel efficiency makes a difference! . When it is time for a new car, choose a more fuel efficient vehicle You can save 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year if your new car gets only 3 miles per gallon more than your current one. You can get up to 60 miles per gallon with a hybrid! You can find information on fuel efficiency on FuelEconomy and on GreenCars websites. . Try car sharing Need a car but don't want to buy one? Community car sharing organizations provide access to a car and your membership fee covers gas, maintenance and insurance. Many companies - such as Flexcar - offer low emission or hybrid cars too! Also, see ZipCar. . Try telecommuting from home Telecommuting can help you drastically reduce the number of miles you drive every week. For more information, check out the Telework Coalition. . Fly less Air travel produces large amounts of emissions so reducing how much you fly by even one or two trips a year can reduce your emissions significantly. You can also offset your air travel carbon emissions by investingin renewable energy projects. . Encourage your school or business to reduce emissions You can extend your positive influence on global warming well beyond your home by actively encouraging other to take action. .

Plants and any growing vegetation remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. This carbon is stored in the plants and trees. Any removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere slows global warming a little.
Replant billions of trees all over the world. . Stop burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) inindustry, transport and the generation of electricity, whichreleases carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). . Start using renewable energy (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidaland wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, …biomass and biofuel) togenerate electricity. ( Full Answer )
You can minimise the use of bulbs,tv,vehicles,cooking gas as they all cause pollution.. and can opt for cfls,public vehicles instead of your own..
Some ways an individual can help prevent global warming is byrecycling, walking rather using a car, and to eat vegetarian foods.People can become politically active and vote for candidates whoare also fighting global warming.
You can't. The only way is to stop global warming, which will mean a massive effort on the part of every country in the world.
They play a part by spreading seed from plants and trees, that in turn grow and use carbon to do so.
Changes in the mean global temperature can be measured by: . Ground based weather records kept over a long time to track trends . Sea water temperature records . Satellite imagery . Wildlife and plant life distribution . Sea ice records
According to Experts, factories can reduce their reliance on fossilfuels in manufacturing settings to reduce their impact on globalwarming. In addition, factories should consider minimizing waste aswell.
Dust and ash from volcanic eruptions can darken the sky for weeks at a time. This prevents sunlight warming the earth. However, this is usually only temporary and will not prevent global warming.
Industries have to move to using renewable energy. They burn coal and oil and use electricity that is generated the same way. If we had enough renewable energy (solar, hydro, tidal, wind, geothermal and biofuel) we could stop burning fossil fuels. That is the only answer.
It converts carbon dioxide into oxygen. Carbon dioxide traps heat so when the trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, it not only reduce the amount of heat by a bit but also give us oxygen to breathe in.
WAYS OF PREVENTING GLOBAL WARMING\ GREENHOUSE EFFECT If we try, most of us can do our part to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that we put into the atmosphere. Many greenhouse gases come from things we do every day. Driving a car or using electricity is not wrong. We just have to be smart abou…t it. Some people use less energy by carpooling. For example, four people can ride together in one car instead of driving four cars to work. You can help make the planet a better place! by- Save Electricity whenever we use electricity, we help put greenhouse gases into the air. By turning off lights, the television, and the computer when you are through with them, you can help a lot. Bike, Bus, and Walk you can save energy by sometimes taking the bus, riding a bike, or walking. By Akshita Goel(Delhi) The fact is its probally to late to do what is written above. Global warming is going to hit us hard. There have been a few solutions thrown out on how to cool the earth, but many of them are far fetched. One was to launch 16 trillion force field type disk into orbit. But this idea would be way to expensive. ( Full Answer )
No, the sun does not prevent global warming. It provides the heat originally, and we add the extra greenhouse gases to capture more of it, causing global warming.
Photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It iscertainly a help in the regulation of the CO2 levels of our planet. During photosynthesis oxygen is given out and co2 is absorbed bythe plant.
trees reduce global warming, but they can't prevent a process that is already taking place.. trees obsorb CO2 and turn this into oxygen, reducing the Green house gas concentration in the atmosphere, reducing the greenhouse effect or global warming.
You can let your parents and other adults know you care. This will be your world when you grow up, and today's adults should leave it in a state fit for human society.

If …it is not far, you can offer to walk to the shops to save taking out the car and burning fuel. ( Full Answer )
As we are all living on the planet we are all responsible for the global warming.
We have to move to renewable energy (solar, wind, etc) and stop burning fossil fuels. Electricity is the key. With renewable electricity we can run industry and transport without any harmful emissions. There are tried, costed and tested examples of wind and solar tower technology that, workin…g together, can provide electricity day and night. With solar tower technology, arcs of mirrors focus the sun's heat on a central tower where temperatures can reach 550 degrees Celsius. (Solar heat can be stored in molten salts by day. The salt will then release heat overnight to generate power.) Old dirty coal-fired power stations have to be replaced with emission-free technologies. We have to forget about coal and leave it in the ground. A: As a student, i can contribute by to help prevent or control these issues are to reduced waste, proper segregation of garbage's,plant more trees,proper consuming of energy to lessen electricity and water consumption. stop air pollution ( Full Answer )
Windmills capture electricity from a renewable source, the wind, without releasing any greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. The present buildup of greenhouse gases is causing the enhanced greenhouse effect which has caused global warming. Renewable energy is the way of the future!
This is an area of grave concern.

It's possible. A lot more will need to be done, but it would at least significantly slow down the process. As one person, the best thing you can do is go vegan if you want to help the environment. (and animals and humans)
Cutting out the use of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal), and replacing them with renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro etc), is the most prominent factor that need addressing.
Hydro-electricity can help slow global warming , if we stop using fossil fueled energy, which releases carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. Hydro-electric energy needs rivers and mountains, usually, and some places successfully get most of their energy this way. Wave and tidal powe…r can also be harnessed and small projects are in existence around the world hoping for success. The nice thing about hydroelectric power is that it doesn't *increase* global warming. It doesn't decrease it as such, although it does reduce the problem. Hydroelectric power involves converting potential energy or kinetic energy in water into electrical energy, and has no significant by products. Power from fossil fuels (oil products, gas and coal) involves liberating chemical energy from the fuel. Unfortunately this produces carbon dioxide as a by product. Carbon dioxide has a greenhouse-like effect in the atmosphere, trapping heat radiated from the surface of the planet, increasing global warming. This latter argument also applies to other carboniferous fuels we burn, such as trees. At least with trees, they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while they are alive, so we can grow new trees to compensate. The trouble with fossil fuels is that their carbon is released once and forever. Ironically, they were once living things too (trees and small creatures). ( Full Answer )
No but they stop it from getting much worse they're clean power source. They are more of a feel good technology at present. They produce less power then what you need to make a panel. The bottom line affect is more power is used, rather then less. They are awesome though in areas that have powe…r issues. Space, for example, is a great spot for them. ( Full Answer )

Global warming can no longer be prevented, at least not in theshort term. But we can slow down the process by reducing ourproduction of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases,then finally become carbon neutral so that the global warmingprocess eventually ceases. Right now we can reduce …our use of electricity by using moreefficient products, turning off lights and appliances, and byreducing our use of oil with more fuel-efficient cars and usepublic transport whenever possible. Governments and industry mustmove towards using alternative sources of energy such as wind andsolar power, geothermal resources and so on. Another Answer . Use less energy, . recycle, . use less water, . carpool, . turn lights and computers off when you aren't needingthem, . all kinds of things! . we can stop cutting down trees . buy compact fluorescent light bulbs . replace or clean the filters in your air conditioner or in yourfurnace and more to come. . stop using cars . recycling everything, . polluting the air less with hybrids cars (not Hummers or otherSUVs), . reusing, . buying things with less packaging, etc. Another Answer We are also being dominated by over population meaning the burningof fossil fuels is at an all time high.

Global warming has already started. If we stopped carbon dioxide emissions today, there is still enough additional greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to continue warming for some years. We can prevent the worst case of global warming, but governments have to take serious action first to reduce, and …then to ban carbon emissions altogether. ( Full Answer )
If we choose to do what we can to prevent global warming, we will avoid potentailly catastrophic climate change, rising sea levels, loss of wildlife habitat and biodiversity, and serious economic harm in the medium and long term.
Yes, to some extent, because forests sequester carbon so that it does not enter the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. The widespread deforestation of recent decades has been a small but significant contributor to global warming.
If you mean how well there's a bunch of ways. like recycle or ride bikes to reduce emissions and many other forms of green actions.
Scientists as a group do not take measures to prevent global warming other than those taken by individuals.
A Venus flytrap, a small plant that lives on insects, will not be able to prevent global warming. It will remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but only a small amount. A huge forest of giant Venus flytraps would be more effective, but unlikely.
You can prevent it by conserving energy and instead of driving a car take a bike or carpool.
it has many plants that take in the harmful air that make the earth warm, and replaces it with oxygen
Oceans don't prevent global warming. Much of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is absorbed by theoceans. This is making the water more acidic, which damages coraland other shellfish. This is part of the natural carbon cycle,taking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so it delays globalwarming a …bit. Heat from the atmosphere also moves into theoceans, which also slows global warming. ( Full Answer )
Stop or reduce use of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in electricity and transport and start using renewable energy (solar, wind, water, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal, ocean thermal, biomass, biofuel etc). . Stop cutting down forests and start planting billions of trees all over the wo…rld. ( Full Answer )
Junk mail means that more trees are cut down for the paper. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so trees slow global warming. If there are fewer trees, then global warming increases.
Wind power helps reduce the amount of coal we burn because it runs off WIND. Wind is a renewable source of energy, which means that it doesn't involve using any harmful products to generate electricity. No coal=less carbon-dioxide released into atmosphere=healthier environment :D
There's disagreement about this, but some studies say no, thatwe've passed the point of no return
