Experts have been warning people that global temperatures are starting to become is very serious issue for this generation and generations to come.
These issues include rising mercury levels which is bringing implications to the world which include the ocean levels rising, and droughts becoming more consistent and even select types of insects and animals having to readapt to the changing temperatures.
This is all quite negative news for the plant and its inhabitants and humans naturally want to turn their heads and imagine that it doesn’t exist. But the problem with this is if we keep moving in this direction there are going to be serious implications for the very near future generations.
So what can an everyday person do?
We must first actually take all this into account and realize that this issue is not going to go away simply by ignoring it or putting our head in the sand.
We must take immediate action and unite on the issue and work together to make sure these problems do not get further out of hand.
It’s quite common knowledge that everyday tasks such as not using so much non renewable goods or even purchasing them in the first place is extremely beneficial. Another way we can minimise our global footprint is to recycle on a regular basis if not everyday. We must take this very seriously and teach our children to follow in our footpath as they are going to be inheriting the world after us anyway.
What are some of the other major things we can do to lower our impact on the environment?
A very large impact is the consumption of energy in the form of electricity. Many modern societies and cultures still use coal and other non renewables to burn which are catastrophic to the overall health of the environment.
Why is Solar so great?
Using solar energy is a definite way to dramatically stop or lessen the amount of carbon that is emitted into the atmosphere from coal and other environmentally detrimental resources.
Solar energy comes from the light which is produced by the sun hitting directly to your solar power board. As the sun is a resource that is constantly supplying energy it makes sense to harness and use the heat and light that it gives off.
How much better is solar for the planet in giving off co2 emissions? Well consider this, solar produces about one fiftieth of the emissions than coal produces. That is a massive statistic right there. Think about that for a second. You could power fifty houses for the same emissions as one solar house of dwelling.
How do you get solar installed then?
Most people get solar companies to come around and give them quotes and install the panels manually. This can be quite expensive but is still definitely worth the money.
Another more cost effective way is to do it yourself. This is only recommended if you have trade related skills and good work clothing and protection.
You will save quite a substantial amount of money this way but the overall time input will most likely be higher.
Remember if you have other rental properties you can install solar on them all and it will save the tenant and yourself money in electricity bills while helping the earth.
