Carbon dioxide emission (CO2) is the principal element of greenhouse gases (GHG), contributing a greater portion of 50% equivalent to global warming. The effort to control the increase of atmospheric CO2 emission awareness is an essential elucidation to curtail global warming challenge. Through the protection of existing forests and increasing the preservation of the woodland storage, carbon sequestration by forest areas can be efficiently elevated. CO2 emissions from forests to the atmosphere to the large extent may be prevented by promoting the long-time period use of woods and reprocessing without burning. When effective land use plans are formulated, the use of agricultural land which forms part of sub-Saharan arable land deforestation will reduce.  Holistically, moderating the exerting of carbon sequestration characteristic of vegetation by protecting the original forest areas, wetland and marsh vegetation as far as possible can effectively control CO2 emissions and improve environmental quality. In the long-term, the technological innovation, development, and utilization of alternative energy sources like fossil energy will mitigate CO2 emissions. Household emission form contributes a significant amount CO2 emission hence, the adaptation to new energy-saving ecological lifestyle will be an important part of controlling greenhouse gas emissions.
