Climate Change/Mitigation Strategies

In this section, we assume anthropogenic climate change is well underway and examine what individuals and social structures can do to slow or reverse the trend.

It is consensual that at present all strategies to address climate change in a global scale will be extremely infective, not by design but for failure to comply and commit to them, and extremely costly, especially due to the first reason. If measures are not taken simultaneously by all the unbalance will aggravate the impact on those that will attempt to implement them.

Community contributions to mitigation[edit | edit source]

This section highlights some current thinking about how communities might deal with a changing climate. These include encouraging people to live closer to where they work, building up (not out), increasing use of public transportation, increasing recycling programs, more efficient use of water resources, more renewable energy sources, and even "green" urban planning.

Individual contributions to mitigation[edit | edit source]

Here we discuss how personal conservation can help to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

How societies/countries can reduce emissions[edit | edit source]

Governments are now aware and intend to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emotions, these are several areas that can contribute to it.
