Factories produce heat,and the heat they produce escapes into the Earth's atmosphere and contributes to global warming. If we built a dome over a factory,the heat produced by that factory would be trapped within the dome,and therefore the heat would never escape into the Earth's atmosphere,and it would never contribute to global warmng. So,if we could convince politicians to make laws that require every factory and power plant on Earth to have a dome built over it,we would reduce global warming. The next step would be building domes over cities and towns. Since cities produce heat,they contribute to global warming. If we built a dome over a town,the heat produced by that town would be trapped inside the dome,and therefore the towen's heat would never escape into the atmosphere,and it would never contribute to global warming. Some cities are large,so it would be impractical to built a single dome over the entire city. In the case of a large city,the city would be split up into neighborhoods,and a dome would be built over every neighborhood. Gasoline-powered vehicles would be outlawed in domed cities,because of the pollution they produce. All the vehicles in domed cities would be electric-powered or hydrogen-powered. Tunnels would be built to connect domed cities together,so vehicles could travel from one city to another inside tunnels. The heat produced by the vehicles would remain trapped in those tunnels so the heat never escapes into the Earth's atmosphere,where it could contribute to global warming. You'd have to convince politicians to make laws that require every city and town on Earth to be covered with a dome.

Living in a domed city has many advantages. If the dome is strong enough to withstand hurricane-force winds,you would be protected from storms,if you lived in a domed city. This is important because global warming will probably increase the number of hurricanes and violent storms that occur in the future. Another advantage is protection from disease. Tropical diseases will spread north as global warming increases the average temperature of the Earth. Diseases such as malaria and cholera,that were formerly only found in steaming tropical jungles near the equator will now be found as far north as Canada and Alaska,as the arctic regions warm up. If you lived inside a domed city,you would be isolated from the germs outside. Birds and insects that carry germs would not be able to get into the dome,so people who lived inside domed cities would be protected from disease.
