The Need for Clean Energy
The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) delivered a report on the state of climate change with some dire warnings and predictions. Key findings in the report were that climate change is here and will affect all areas of American. Life- water, oceans, energy, human health, and economics to varying degrees will be affected. In order to sustain our way of life, we need to make the change to clean energy.
Facts on Climate Change
Despite some climate change deniers, climate change is real. Extreme weather events have increased in frequency and severity, costing taxpayers over $1 billion per event. The Climate Change Assessment predicts we will not be able to stop the inevitable damage that will occur. However, there is hope we can inhibit the damage if we work together to concentrate on reducing our carbon emissions.
You probably have heard the term “carbon footprint”. This refers to the carbon emissions you’re likely releasing into the atmosphere as a result of dirty energy sources. Even our electricity plants run on these energy sources instead of clean renewable energy such as solar power. Approximately 60% of our energy is obtained by fossil fuels, coal, and natural gas. This is despite the wide availability of clean renewable energy such as solar or wind power. As a consumer, you can do something to change that by opting for clean renewable energy instead.
Climate Change and You
“Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities… but the severity of future impacts will depend largely on actions taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the changes that will occur,” reports the Climate Change Assessment. This means it’s up to each and every one of us to reduce our carbon footprint by turning to clean renewable energy instead of fossil fuels.
As a homeowner, you can do more than most to reduce your carbon footprint by embracing clean renewable energy in the form of solar power. By installing solar panels on your home, you can reduce your family’s energy consumption dramatically. Further, you can also generate not only clean renewable energy for your own home but enough to sell back to the electric company you currently buy energy from. This can help others to use clean renewable energy as well.
