Key Points 

  • The speed of global warming can be slowed down but not entirely stopped.
  • It has been 47 years since Earth had a more than-average colder year. 
  • The global temperature is on track to rise 2.5°C to 4.5°C in temperature by 2100.
  • Companies and businesses contribute highly to the global carbon emissions.

Can Global Warming be Stopped?

People often ask how can we stop global warming. If not stopped altogether, can it be slowed down? Well, we are here to tell you that through sustainability practices and mindful choices, the speed of global warming can be slowed down and with a sheer bit of luck, it may be possible to bring it to an unnoticeable state. It has been 47 years since Earth had a more than-average colder year. Our planet has been in a state of constant warming which has led to 2023 being the hottest year ever recorded and scaringly enough, this is just the start. 

Stop Global Warming Key Points

If we continue on the same pathway, the global temperature is on track to rise 2.5°C to 4.5°C in temperature by 2100. From the smallest inhabitants of this planet to the largest, a sense of homeostasis exists. They can survive within a small range of temperatures and any drastic change will result in either death of the individual members of the species or a full-blown extinction. To stop that from happening we need to come together as a species and make sensible choices that will help our planet. 

Companies and businesses contribute highly to the global carbon emissions. If only they can adopt planet-friendly practices, we can reach our 2050 net zero emissions goal. There are many different ways to practice sustainability at a company level and here we bring you a few of them:

Spreading the Word: Stop Global Warming

The first step that a company should take on their way to sustainability is to spread the word about what its goals are for the business and what the employees can do to ease the transition. Companies can also run campaigns on their social media channels, engaging their customers and audience, to think about implementing sustainability practices in their lives and supporting businesses that are taking steps in the right direction. 

Saying Yes to Renewable Energy 

The biggest contribution to greenhouse gases is through the burning of fossil fuels on which most companies work, and so do our cars, trucks, and ships, which use gasoline and petroleum products to run, we use natural gas in our kitchens, and it also keeps our homes warm and cozy. In the times we live in, these are our necessities and we cannot live without them. So what do we do? We should start saying yes to sustainable and renewable energy sources in every aspect of our lives including industries. This is one of many ways to stop global warming from worsening.

Reduce Reuse and Recycle 

These three Rs are key to any company looking to practice sustainability. If a company is already established, bringing these changes can be a difficult step and may take a long time but once the by-products of the company are used efficiently, the waste is managed mindfully, and the resources are used as needed, change can be seen instantly.

FAQs

Will Global Warming Be Stopped By 2050?

Global warming cannot be stopped by 2050 but it can be slowed down. The way that we are progressing with our SDGs and current emissions, it is highly unlikely that we will reach our goal of net zero by 2050 but there is still time. If we take drastic measures to halt the burning of fossil fuels and switch to sustainable energy sources, we might be where we need to be: on track to become net zero by the year 2050 but it will still take a lot more to stop global warming altogether. 

What Happens if Global Warming Is Not Slowed By 2050?

If global warming is not slowed by 2050, the planet will become much warmer. This will result in even worse climate change, more floods, drought, unpredictable weather, and bushfires. Animal and plant life will also be greatly affected by it. The natural fossil fuels will eventually run out and we will be left with a broken ecosystem which will be hardest to restore. Let’s just say that if global warming is not slowed down by 2050, the planet will be in utter chaos.

Conclusions

In conclusion, we can stop global warming from worsening if we start making sustainable and sensible choices today. Even then it would take some time for the planet to reverse the damage that has been done. Businesses should measure their emissions and invest in carbon offsetting projects to show their commitment to sustainability and net zero.
