A better question would be what man made action would be the most effective in offsetting the effects of climate change.

It is man's greed for more of everything that causes the greatest harm to this planet.

It may sound picky;however, women are part of the greed factor also. Somehow I have to imaging myself as being a part of 'Mankind' but when I head Humankind is causing the greatest harm to the planet....I do feel that I do have a 'horse in the race'. Guess I'm a bit funny that way about words and their meaning...

I watch a video of the deforestation tactics used in South American forests. They hook a chain between two tractors, sectioned off a swath of forest and pulled it down...and planted Soybeans...to be used for animal feed and Soy foods. After I had worked in a WalMart doing food demos for 2 years and watching the pallets of paper products arrive in just that 1 store and knowing that WalMart has over 8000 store not to mention all other stores that sell paper products...I over came my fear of...

Sheila Rekdal They do the same in Texas, chain between 2 large bulldozers. But like some others have said, in the end, we have met the enemy and they are us. Population control is the only long term solution to "all the above".

Daniela, I do not understand why you say every time we cut a tree and planting another one we sentence our planet to death. I tought that when we replace cut trees by planting new ones we were at least reparing the damages !

The idea that mankind can have an impact on global warming is the biggest scam of the last two centuries based on corrupted computer models, concocted statistics, and lies. The planet has not increased in temperature for 10 years. The sea levels have not risen more than one inch in 30 years and the planet was warmer in the Middle Ages. THOSE ARE THE FACTS!

Overall, I believe that the root cause is lack of education and understandng the cause and effect chain of events.That includes from utilities to the state of mind of man. and its egoistic needs.

Does the mind of "man' include women...or do we get off the hook....just a shadow portion of the populace?

you didn't give the option about eating meat - that surely is number one factor causing deforestation, high consumption of water etc.

You are so right. I saw a small lake in the TX panhandle be poisoned and eventually drained due to the run off from feed lots. The food supply is so degraded now that I do not eat out, nor do I buy much of anything in grocery stores. I live in KC MO area and am finding sources of local grass feed, free range, organic grower products. It is truly a' buyer be aware' world. When I became aware of the way Forests are ripped down and GMO soy was planted there...I bought and now use a bidet...no...

It is criminal to think of a forest being gone and all the diversity and the animals that lived there being gone...just to make 'butt wipe' for us two leggers.
