The author discusses the impact of global warming on the business sector worldwide and offers solutions to counter its effects. A trading emission scheme and the Kyoto protocol are just a few of the proposed actions to control carbon dioxide emission. Solar energy may also be considered as a high-level energy source for industrial use but to develop such facility is too costly, the author says. He suggests the clean coal technology, despite the high cost, as the best solution for now.
