Everyone is getting acclimatized to
the fact that our planet is going to get doomed very soon. Although there have
been hundreds and thousands of conferences being held every month across
different parts of the world, but still,
the change has to occur at an individual level!
Research has been done on an extensive level; scientists have concluded that global warming is not a
prediction anymore, it is happening! The reason for that is exhausting and
burning of fossil fuels, which is driven by humans.
The basic rationale
A lot of factors contribute to the global warming of the planet. Some
basic ones are mentioned below:
Burning of fossil fuels which releases
a lot of carbon dioxide gas.
Deforestation of tropical forests for wood,
farmland and pulp.
Excessive environment pollution
caused by humans.
Excessive use of chemical fertilizers for the growth of crops.
Don’t wait, till it is too late: act
It is high time that every individual must get aware that the crisis
is increasing day by day and the planet is entering a period of consequences.
Saving the planet has become a
necessity now. But do you know how? What exactly must be done? Well, there are some solutions and some actions which must
be up taken.
Let us take a look at them:
Manage the refrigerants: Has anyone heard about CFCs?
Obviously, yes! If not; CFCs a.k.a. Chlorofluorocarbons
are gasses, which are released from
refrigerators and Air conditioners. They are the main culprits which
destroy the ozone layer! So, these CFCs are trying to be replaced by
natural ones like propane and ammonia.
Solar farms: Fossil fuels are dying out; people need to use
renewable sources of energy like solar-powered
instruments. Currently, solar power contributes to just 2-3% of global
Wind turbines: It’s advisable to opt for wind power, but that has its challenges. Wind turbines might be available, but the flow of wind is not always same. It
needs to be utilised whenever the
winds are in our favor.
Do not waste water: A lot of energy is lost in heating and treating water. So, the moment one tries
to save water they are saving carbon too! Treatment of water also requires
the release of certain chemicals. So, please reduce wastage of water as much
as possible. Take shorter showers, opt for water efficient technologies
and close your tap when the bucket is full.
Re-think your vehicles: Pollution and release of toxic gases can be reduced if the automobiles are upgraded continuously and cleaned. The
best option is to avail a bicycle, if possible. Lesser the use of fuel,
more you put a step forward to save the planet.
The entire population has to work
hand in hand to achieve results at a global level, right? Come forward, do your
part. Please remember, the potential to save water and trees is enormous. Use
that power, save the planet by reversing these climate change effects!
