Human activity, primarily the unregulated burning of fossil fuels,is the major cause of the abnormal rapid increase of the Earth’s average surface temperature and this phenomenon is known as global warming.
Are We Humans in Great Danger?
Global warming happens when there is an excessive amount of greenhouse gases in the planet’s lower atmosphere that traps the heat of the sun which is radiated by the Earth back to space. Greenhouse gases, such as water vapor (H2O(g)), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrous oxide (N2O), are naturally found in the Earth’s atmosphere under normal concentration. But with human intervention, an increase of these along with other synthetic greenhouse gases such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) can be detrimental to the environment as well as the human race. Because of this, various laws and policies were brainstormed, planned, and employed by environmentalists, scientists, and lawmakers to control these greenhouse gases emissions. But the question is—are we doing enough?
‘Mother’ Earth’s Time is Running Out
According to World Meteorological Organization (2021), “there is a 40% chance that the Earth’s annual average global temperature will reach the critical climate threshold of 1.5°C (2.7°F) above the pre-industrial levelin at least one of the next five years—and these odds are increasing with time.” Implementing laws regarding waste and carbon emission reduction is just the beginning of our hagglewith climate change and its irreversible adverse effects on Our Mother Earth and humanity. Since we are nearing thecritical temperature limit, climate change becomes unstoppable, but we can slow it down by being PROACTIVE WITH OUR COMMITMENTS TOWARDS PRESERVING THE FUTURE OF MANKIND AND EARTH. How do we do it? It is by executing energy sustainability solutions.
Energy Sustainability Solutions Buy Us Some Time
Truth to be told, we cannot stop our utilization of fossil fuels all at once since almost all our day-to-day products are derived from them such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, apparel, etc. But with an alternative, it can buy us some time to slow down climate change and this will require YOUR ACTION to make the primary culprits of it—the industries—to be accountable through practicing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) which includes the use of renewable sources and energy-efficient machines for carbon reduction.The chief benefactors of yourCHOICE today are your children’s children. Therefore, EMPLOY GREEN ENERGY!
“The Hard-to-Swallow Bitter Pill of Reality: We only start to be proactive on certain matters when it has a direct effect on us. But if it isn’t, we just let it pass with time. Hence, when a sudden natural disasterhitsus, we grumble afterward. Who are we to blame? No other than but ourselves.”
