How can we protect world from the recent global heating problem ?

I want to say about the procedure and our thinking and doings.

Answer:
It is nothing we can do to avoid the problem, we can only do damage control, industries were too greedy now everybody have to pay the price.
Damage control like moving cities close to see inland, cut CO2 emission by 1/3 in two years.
The term "global warming" is a specific case of the more general term "climate change". In principle, "global warming" is neutral as to the causes, but in common usage, "global warming" generally implies a human influence. However, the UNFCCC uses "climate change" for human-caused change, and "climate variability" for other changes. Some organizations use the term "anthropogenic climate change" for human-induced changes.
The climate system varies both through natural, "internal" processes as well as in response to variations in external "forcing" from both human and non-human causes, including solar activity, volcanic emissions, and greenhouse gases. Climatologists agree that the earth has warmed recently. The detailed causes of this change remain an active field of research, but the scientific consensus identifies greenhouse gases as the primary cause of the recent warming. Outside of the scientific community, however, this conclusion can be controversial.

But if we do no act fast to mitigate its effects the consequences can be devastating. These are five categories of actions that can be taken to mitigate global warming:
1. Reduction of energy use (conservation)
2. Shifting from carbon-based fossil fuels to alternative energy sources
3. Carbon capture and storage
4. Carbon sequestration
5. Planetary engineering to cool the earth, including screening out sunlight and increasing the reflectivity of the earth.
Global leaders are now taking this problem seriously and are encouraging the common people to control activities that are known to cause warming. Some of the tasks that can be undertaken are:
1. Use eco-friendly vehicals.
2. Reduce use of fossil fuels.
3. Reduce use of aerosols known to contain CFC gases.
I would like to share with you our Future Scientists Clubs experience in Global Warming Student Speakout project.

Google partnered with Global SchoolNet to invite teachers and students to use Google Docs & Spreadsheets collaborative software in a project to brainstorm strategies for combating global warming.

Children of all ages from more than 80 schools around the world participated, and on November 27th we took out a full-page ad in USA Today to put their ideas in the spotlight. Here are their top 50 ideas:

1.Include global warming/climate change in school curricula (as part of National Science Standards), so when the students are in charge they can make educated decisions.
2.Increase availability of low-interest Energy Efficient Mortgages to support homeowners who increase the energy efficiency of their homes.
3.Put light sensors in all office and school buildings so all lights go off when the rooms are empty.
4.Require that all products contributing to global warming be marked with a specific color (e.g., chemical pesticides could be marked with a red sticker for being extremely dangerous to the environment).
5.Use less paper; use the back of the paper to print on or write on; use recyled paper.
6.Plant more trees to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
7.Teach recycling techniques in classes and school-wide programs.
8.Make recycling mandatory in all public facilities, such as schools, parks and beaches.
9.Do public service announcements on TV featuring celebrities promoting carpooling, walking, riding bikes, using public transportation, conserving electricity and recycling.
10.Give grants and tax credits to companies that invest in alternative, sustainable, emission-free fuel technologies while ending such subsidies for fosssil fuel production.
11.The media should conduct interviews of legislators to help the public become aware of their ability and willingness to help solve the problem.
12.Replace incandescence light bulbs with fluorescence light bulbs.
13.Restrict the use of chemical fertilizer in agriculture.
14.Provide incentives and policies to encourage car makers to make more fuel efficient cars.
15.Protect wetlands and preserve more open space.
16.Provide tax incentives for regular recyclers and car poolers.
17.Use solar panels in the construction of new homes and office buildings.
18.Substitute local community transportation fleets with hybrid vehicles.
19.Require that car dealers hand out fact sheets that inform car buyers about the pollution levels of different cars.
20.Send scientists to talk about global warming in schools. They can bring hands-on activities so students feel more involved.
21.Unplug all electronics from the wall when they're not in use.
22.Have another Global Warming Student Speakout in one year - to see if any of these ideas have been implemented.
23.Raise mandatory emissions standards for cars and other vehicles sold in the US.
24.Use solar power in the day and use electricity at night when needed.
25.Give tax rebates for using solar power.
26.Congress should ratify the Kyoto Agreement.
27.Establish off-shore wind farms - saves land space and produces reliable power.
28.Levy higher taxes on companies that pollute the air.
29.Wait until you have a lot of clothes to wash before using the washing machine.
30.Provide tax incentives for companies that create Hybrid cars. That will reduce the need for oil.
31.Schools and businesses should be fined for not having recycling bins available to the people on their premises.
32.The media should tell us about what is really going on with global warming. We don't think that we have all the information we need.
33.At the end of the weather forecast, report “CO2 emissions levels today…” or comparative average temperatures (i.e., this year's temperature as it compares to the past several years).
34.Lead by example and convert 50% of government vehicles to environmentally friendly cars by the year 2020.
35.Place recycling bins throughout the city wherever there is a trash can.
36.Require companies to limit the amount of packaging an item can have and it must be recyclable.
37.Block bills that cause more damage to the environment.
38.Media could reduce advertising costs for alternative energy products to inform and increase sales in these areas.
39.Keep your tires fully inflated to improve gas mileage.
40.Replace old appliances with Energy Star appliances.
41.Promote awareness of local recycling centers.
42.Require college and high school students to take a global warming class.
43.Give tax reductions to public transportation users.
44.Protect our oceans - prevent plankton in the ocean from dying.
45.People running for elections should use email, radio and other media to campaign and stop using so many paper signs and flyers that use up our natural resources and then get left out and become pollution.
46.Reuse newspapers as wrapping paper for gifts.
47.Enforce laws about littering.
48.Use less electricity, turn off the TV, read books, walk, run, bike, surf, play tennis.
49.Business should require employees to telecommute several days a week.
50.Provide scientists appropriate resources to help them research the future of energy and the freedom to explore innovative ideas.
