ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how to prevent the world from warming due to greenhouse gas emissions. Scientists and economists are considering not only the changes that will occur in this world, but how it could sustain a growing human population. It is stated that an average warming of the entire globe by 4 degrees Celsius would have a serious impact on the planet and human beings. Scientists have suggested that human beings should concentrate on reducing emissions to prevent such a disaster.
