ABSTRACT
The article gives emphasis on the need to take an immediate action against global warming, a phenomenon caused by excessive emissions of carbon dioxide destroying the atmosphere and creating a very hot temperature. It discusses various alternatives that major industries in the U.S. and other countries around the world should adopt in order to attain the objectives of reducing carbon emissions by 2020 and beyond. It says that such problem is a global concern requiring for a global effort.
