On a global scale an awful lot would need to be done to bring all this under control, a few random drastic examples.
1/ Abolish business class flights, more people can then fit on existing service.
2/ Cap the number of planes in the sky at what its at today, no new runways.
3/ Cap the number of cattle on the planet at what its at today
4/ Ban the concept of for example, flying prawns from Argentina to a restaurant in Dublin, tax food miles.
5/ Cap the number of boats and containers that are coming from China to Europe etc.
There are loads of extreme measures that would need to be taken now to get this under control, the token effort being made now won't be enough, if the predications of sea level rises are correct.
There is no political will to seriously correct this possible crisis.
