Climate Change is one of the most rising issues in today’s era. The rapid increase in pollution is causing a heavy effect on the atmosphere and one of the reasons behind the increase in pollution is the rapid emission of greenhouse gasses like CO2e and methane. The rising temperature is causing climate change as the places which were used to be chilled are now way warmer than before as the highest temperature of those places was 12 degrees Celcius which reached high to 21 degrees Celsius. There were hundreds of solutions regarding the control on climate change by Carnegie-Mellon University the director of the organization called Project Drawdown and there were some ideas which actually shocked a lot of people.

Jonathan Foley, an atmospheric scientist who took the helm of Project Drawdown late last year, after the list was made said, “Some solutions were a total surprise. Some surprised me, and I’ve been working at this for a long time.” There are some solutions which are easy really helpful like using electric transport, eating plant-rich food changes in our daily use of the appliances and reserve deforestation. As per Project Drawdown, the first organization in the entire world to look out for the easy and money saving techniques of controlling climate change. Foley said, “Women, have a disproportionate share of decision making around what happens in the home. In terms of water, cooking, food, food waste, fuel choices, how homes are heated, how they’re built, how they’re used. So this also is a powerful kind of Girl Effect, we call it, on our world. It’s enormous and combined with family planning access, it’s one of the most powerful climate solutions of all.” Educating girls according to Foley may decrease 51.48 gigatons of carbon emissions. Give women access to family planning resources, may result in saving another 59.6 GT. “Women who have more access to education and more opportunity tend to have fewer children, and a little bit later in life,” Foley said.
