Quora, January 7, 2019 (Forbes)
“…Katharine Hayhoe, Ph.D. Atmospheric Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, proposed four key] climate solutions…Generate energy from clean sources that don’t produce carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases…Reduce heat-trapping gas emissions from other important sectors, like agriculture, land use change, industrial processes, wastewater treatment and more…[Use] resources more efficiently…[Suck some carbon dioxide] out of the atmosphere and put it into the soil, where it helps restore the land, or turn it into fuel, or stone, or other useful products…There’s no one silver bullet that will fix it [she said]…[B]ut there is a lot of silver buckshot…
…[The best] buckshot are solutions that fix other things at the same time: like increasing clean energy use, which grows the local economy, reduces air pollution, and increases energy security; reducing food waste, which also tackles hunger; …educating women and girls, which reduces infant mortality, increases economic security, and allows them the freedom to choose how many children they have…[Simple solutions should be implemented] in our own lives, our homes, our communities and our organizations…Regional solutions [can be] implemented across a business, an industry, a city, a state or a province…[There are] national and international solutions as well…[W]e need all options on the table and all hands on deck.” click here for more
