Global warming has become a public health problem as its effects are deleterious to all life forms. Sadly,
dilemma of increasing worldwide temperature is caused solely by man's activities. The two major man-made causes of
issue are the use of fossil fuels for
and deforestation. There are a variety of ways to tackle
, in my opinion, conversion to renewable sources of
and planting of trees or preservation of green life in general will prove effective.
and foremost, industrialization brought about the advancement of the modern world, but
the continuous emission of dangerous pollutants into the earth's atmosphere. For centuries, coal and other fossil fuels have been used to generate
for our daily activities. Experts have shown that these gases are responsible for the elevation of the planet's core temperature as they cause depletion of the protective covering of the earth called the ozone layer which counteracts the greenhouse effect. To solve
problem, governments globally should place an embargo on the use of fossil fuels as

will allow for healing of the ozone layer since the factors causing its destruction would have been eliminated.
, as the population of humans increase, so is the need for more space for housing and other infrastructures.
has led to a vast depletion of the trees that are responsible for clearing out the earth's air.
, the trees, especially in the arctic region help to preserve the permafrost
which keeps the core temperature cool. The absence of

, areas where deforestations have already taken place should commence tree planting drives.
, there are countries where community service for minor infractions are done by planting at least 500 trees. Government should
make policies that ensure incorporation of nature and trees into works and housing plans.
In conclusion, the biggest challenge of
generation might as well be global warming. It is the culmination of the effects of man's activities
as burning fuels and cutting down trees. I believe that changing to alternative forms of power and worldwide planting of trees can help solve
