Global warming, alongside rogue biotechnology, nuclear wars, and artificial intelligence is ranked as one of the most imminent and dire threats to the human species. As a result, there has been increased interest by practitioners and academia alike to identify and implement solutions that can mitigate climate change. The United Nations defines climate change as a long-term shift in weather patterns in specific regions that can be directly or indirectly attributed to human activity and that changes the global atmospheric composition (Dankelman, 2013). Global warming is one of the major causes of climate change. It is the long-term trend of increasing average global temperatures as a result of human activities that emit greenhouse gases (Lineman et al., 2015). These dangerous gases, in turn, accumulate the ozone layer of the Earth’s atmosphere resulting in an average increment of global temperatures. Therefore, global warming does not refer to the increase in temperature to one specific location on the globe but rather the increase in average temperature over the entire globe (Hougton, 2017). Depending on different geographical locations, the rise in global average temperatures leads to climate change. This research seeks to focus on the residential heating as a cause of global warming in Massachusetts and to access the renewable mitigative measures and the projected cost of taking such mitigative measures.
