Abstract: Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and weather patterns. Natural factors like variations in the solar cycle as well as human activity, particularly the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas, may be to blame for these shifts. The main greenhouse gases that cause climate change are carbon dioxide, CFCs, and methane. Energy, industry, transportation, buildings, agriculture, and land use are the main emitters. The globe has warmed by about 1.1°C since the late 1800s, according to the discovery. The warmest decade on record occurred between 2011 and 2020. Currently, some of the repercussions of climate change include severe droughts, water shortages, deadly fires, increasing sea levels, flooding, melting polar ice, catastrophic storms, and a reduction in biodiversity. More than half of the world’s population lives in shelters, which account for three quarters of the world’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This is the foundation of global climate change mitigation and strategic low-carbon development (GHG). Solar energy, organic compost, nanotechnology, vertical farming, and other modern examples of green technical methods are utilised. The efficient application of green technology is crucial for managing trash and pollutants in an eco-friendly and sustainable way, which will reduce GHG emissions and the effects of climate change. This review article argues that it is imperative to investigate novel and alternative approaches for making use of these potentially valuable resources and to modify people’s behaviour in this direction.
