In order to reduce the harmful effects of global warming, the following steps should be taken
• Reduce the amount of waste products incurred by industrial plants that contribute to destruction of the ozone layer. Strict laws should be enforced that cut down on factory emissions of polluted air into the environment. Some examples of harmful pollutants are ethane, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and carbon monoxide.
• Encourage industries to develop technologies that use waste materials as raw materials. This will cut down on harmful emissions and reduce industrial waste.

• Use alternative sources of energy whenever possible. Alternative energy like hydroelectric power, wind power, and solar power should replace those energy sources like oil and coal that produce toxic gases like sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide. Factories should use low-sulfur fuels-high-sulfur materials mix with water vapor and create acid rain that damages the environment.

• Prevent industrialized countries from producing poisonous chemicals like chemical fertilizers that spread carbon monoxide into the environment.

• Plant more trees that soak up carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Afforestation and reforestation are the most important ways to reduce the harmful gases in the atmosphere that damage the ozone layer and increase global warming.

• Reduce the toxic gases motor vehicles eject into the atmosphere as exhaust fumes. We should focus research and resources on developing internal combustion engines that don't emit so much exhaust that can destroy the environment.

• Decrease intoxicants emitted by factories and cars. This can be done by using gadgets that convert smoke into vapor and carbon dioxide, which are currently being developed in many industrialized nations. Alternatively, we should try to make hydrogen fuel a more viable option than it is currently-hydrogen does not pollute the environment like oil and coal, but it's difficult to store and distribute.

• Reduce the amount of heavy industries in developed countries. The ozone layer is like a heavy blanket above the Earth's atmosphere that plays an important role in minimizing the amount of direct sun light that hits the Earth's surface. The ozone layer can be damaged by gaseous emissions from heavy industries in countries like the US, England, France, and others. Global warming results from industrial development and can be minimized if developed countries work to decrease exhaust from industrial plants.

• Reduce the production and testing of nuclear weapons. A nuclear explosion causes great harm to the environment, so we should discourage countries from testing them.

• Confront global warming worldwide. Global warming affects everyone in the world-its impacts are not confined to certain countries, like industrialized ones. All people throughout the world suffer from the impacts of global warming and a damaged ozone layer. Therefore, countries should work together to confront this problem as a unified movement. War and fighting throughout the world should not prevent countries from understanding that global warming affects everyone equally.

• Educate people about how to conserve the environment, and how important it is to practice conservation. This is the most important means to controlling the spread of global warming. Secondly, governments should work with industries to place filters in their exhaust systems so that fewer toxic chemicals are released into the atmosphere.

• Use more alternative sources of energy. Only when people put environmental conservation first and work to modify industries so that they don't harm the environment as much will we decrease the affects of global warming.
