Global Warming Solutions

There are solutions to global warming available to us today and it's time we put them to use. These solutions will reduce the amount of heat-trapping gases that we emit into the atmosphere. Among the solutions are ways of reducing the amount of fossil fuels we use to power our vehicles and generate our electricity, and protecting threatened forests, which store carbon in their biomass.

Many of the organizations that have contributed to the Global Warming: Early Warning Signs map have extensive information on solutions to global warming available on their web sites. Below is a list of direct links to some of these pages.

Common Sense on Climate Change
A concise guide of practical solutions to global warming from the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Freedom Package
The biggest single step we can take to curb global warming and save oil is to increase the fuel economy of our cars, SUVs, and light trucks. To learn about existing technologies that could dramatically improve fuel economy, and ask automakers to put them in their vehicles, visit this site. To learn about other ways you can curb global warming, please visit the Sierra Club's web site.

Global Warming Information
Both domestically and internationally, Environmental Defense works to stabilize Earth's climate by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. This section explores the problem of global warming, its present and future ramifications, and its possible solutions.

New Energy Future
The state PIRG's campaign for a New Energy Future aims to halt energy policies that require the rollback of key public health and environmental protections, as well as stopping new subsidies for coal, oil and nuclear power. By using America's technological know-how to increase clean renewable sources of energy and make our cars, homes and appliances more energy efficient, we can stop global warming and move towards a smarter, cleaner energy future. General information about global warming is available on the USPIRG web site.

SafeClimate.Net
A project of the World Resources Institute's Sustainable Enterprise Program. It provides practical, simple guidance for businesses and individuals who want to understand and reduce their impact on the world's climate.

Turn Up the Heat : Fight Global Warming
With this campaign, NRDC (the Natural Resources Defense Council) is helping Americans to get a simple message to leaders in government and business: start fixing the problem of global warming now! NRDC's Turn up the Heat website provides online action tools as well as tips for everyday actions we can all take to fight global warming.
