FAQs about Global Warming

5. What must be done to stop global warming?

The Paris Agreement has as its main goal to limit the increase in global temperature to less than 2°C of its the end of this century. To mitigate climate change, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be progressively reduced until they are eliminated, especially those based on fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal. GHG when burned release carbon dioxide (CO2) into atmosphere, causing increased global warming and climate change. To mitigate unwanted effects, fossil fuels must be replaced by clean or renewable energies, such as wind energy or solar energy, green cities, electric cars, etc. If the goal of 2°C is not reached, we could see the increase in the level of seas and oceans, with serious damage to the most vulnerable populations. Floods, landslides, hurricanes, tornadoes, forest fires and other catastrophic events, potentially more destructive than those now known, would also increase.
