How to Protect the World from the Wrath of Rapidly Rising Heat Waves?

With the increase in the average temperature of the earth, the events of climate change are now happening more intensely than before. This year (2022) both the Arctic and the Antarctic, as well as many countries around the world, such as India, Pakistan, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Algeria and the United States of America, are in the grip of the early arrival of heat waves. Although the heat waves now regularly come every year, this year has seen the astonishing phenomenon of their early arrival causing the vanishing of the spring season in almost every country and resulting in the summer season arriving prematurely; this phenomenon has been happening continuously from one region to another this year. The rapidly rising heat waves and the record-breaking rise in temperature are not natural phenomena; it is the result of intrusive human activities for overexploitation of natural resources.
