My Take: Actions to Stop Global Warming Not Significant

I believe that climate change is something real, something that most people overlook too often or do not pay attention to. This is true for some people who work in the field of agriculture. It is especially true for businesses creating factories or facilities, for maximum manufacturing of products and goods. I myself do not think too much of climate change, except in the winter when I wonder how much snow my region will get.

As I recall, climate change is believed to be caused by greenhouse gases, gases and chemicals emitted from farming and innovations by man such as burning fossil fuels. These gases enter and reside in the atmosphere trapping any heat that the Earth receives from the light of the sun. I strongly believe that the USA is one of a handful of large wealthy, mass-producing nations, that has contributed to climate change, and its adverse effects, more than all the other nations in the world.

I’m sure some solutions have been created and implemented in an endeavor to slow or stop global warming. However, if I had to think whether actions to stop global warming has been significant or not, I am inclined to say it has not been significant. I’m aware that some factories and companies have switched to renewable energy like solar power instead of using fossil fuels. The invention of vehicles driven by electric power has also helped reduce the effects of global warming.
