prevent global warming

Hi, I'm writing a speech in French about global warming, and in a previous sentence, I talk about what one can do to reduce the consumption of CO2. So, for my conclusion sentence, I want to say: And by doing this, one can reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and prevent global warming. This is what I have so far...

En procédant ainsi, on peut réduire l'émission de dioxyde de carbone et éviter le réchauffement climatique.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me check this sentence.

    You mean "production of CO2"...

    En procédant ainsi, on peut réduire l'émission de dioxyde de carbone et éviter le réchauffement climatique.
    This sentence is correct.
    However, I would rather use "limiter" instead of "éviter" since you will not stop it, but reduce it.

    Hi,
    Yes you'r right, a suggestion:
    En procédant ainsi, on peut réduire les émissions de dioxyde de carbone et éviter le réchauffement climatique de la planète.

    Here, global is "planet"
