Solution :-

Industrialization demands for more energy and to fulfil these demands fossil fuels are used as they are readily available. Due to their harsh usage, it has an impact on the environment. Too much exploitation of fossil fuels has led to greenhouse effect, resulting in global warming.

But there are few possibilities of reducing this by reducing the usage of fossil fuels and opting for alternate sources of energy. Reducing the unnecessary usage of electricity and water. Opting for public transportation and reducing using own vehicles. These are few small steps that can be implemented for reducing the energy consumption.
