The Implementation of Digital Technology Innovation in Addressing Global Warming

Climate change is undoubtedly one of the most important challenges in our lives. Over the past 150 years, with the industrialization of countries and the consumption of large amounts of fossil fuels, the emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased significantly. These gases include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen dioxide, which by trapping the heat in the atmosphere can lead to the increase of the average temperature of the earth and consequently cause a negative impact on the environment and living organisms.

Many efforts that have been made by international bodies such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to control greenhouse gas emissions, have also failed to deal effectively with global warming.

On the other hand, in recent years, the use of tech-tools such as mobile phones and personal computers has led to the penetration of digital solutions in many different fields. They have a lot of potential when it comes to addressing economic and environmental issues. It seems that effective solutions to global warming can be pursued not in the form of international laws and restrictions, but through technologies such as AI, IoT, Blockchain, VR/AR, Big Data, Robotics, and Cloud Computing. Control and optimization of industrial and domestic consumption, forecasting the climate change, management of clean energy production and consumption, are some areas that the digital technologies and innovations can be used to address the global warming challenges.

The challenge: Propose digital innovative solutions as the main or auxiliary method in controlling, monitoring, reducing and managing the generation and emission of greenhouse gases in the world.
