If you’re not sure how much of an effect global warming has on our planet, or even on the area where you live, this article will definitely help. There is significant evidence of global warming all around us, and the signs that you can recognize will help you to make informed decisions about how you and your family can conserve the earth’s energy resources.
We depend on the forests for a number of resources, which is why it is so important that we do all we can to conserve the trees and plants that we still have. Forest conservation has become a worldwide concern, and if you want to know more about how you can do your part, here is some information that may help.
Britain’s prestigious scientific society, the Royal Society, has published a new study detailing five final-resort schemes to prevent global warming from destroyingthe planet.
THe Royal Society is proposing ‘geoengineering’ solutions to the problem.
“It is an unpalatable truth that unless we can succeed in greatly reducing (greenhouse gas) emissions, we are headed for a very uncomfortable and challenging climate future,” said study leader Professor John Shepherd, an earth scientist at the
University of Southampton.
The Royal Society is recommending serious consideration be given to five ideas toreduce global warming:
Methane and methane emissions are, in fact, 20x times more dangerous than CO2 – traditionally painted black by environmentalists.
Where is Methane Hidden and What IS It?
Fortunately, or unfortunately, methane and its emissions are not as commonly or as openly found as carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is found in abundance all over the planet, especially in heavily populated cities. It is a known enemy and we have now been able to combat it in many different ways.
At some point most people are going to find that they need to get rid of old computer equipment.
You’ve probably been told that you should not get rid of your computer equipment just by tossing it out. This is quite true because by doing so you will find that you are contributing to global warming, and that is never a good situation.
To make the process a little bit simpler for you, we have compiled a list of ten way s that you can get rid of old computer parts without causing any problem to the environment that might invoke some kind of climate change in the future.
A new report from the Carbon Trust claims that deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are required to avoid catastrophic climate change.
At current global economic growth rates, it estimates that greenhouse gas emiisions could rise from 433 parts per million carbon dioxide equivalents concentration in the atmosphere in 2006 to an estimated 1000 parts per million carbon dioxide equivalents (ppmCO2e) in 2100.
To avoid the worst effects of global warming, the Carbon Trust calculates that annual global greenhouse gas emissions should remain below 550 ppmCO2e.But today’s investment and business decisions aren’t likely to put us on to the path of a low-carbon economy.
With the economic meltdown, people are more focused on survival and are likely to be least concerned with reducing global warming. But according to organizations and researchers advocating environmental safety, green prosperity is all about economic recovery centered on nature preservation. How does green prosperity work?
The Political Economy Research Institute or PERI has recently released a report on the various clean energy policies that can potentially be effective poverty alleviation measure. The report states that the ultimate beneficiaries of investments in clean energy sources are the American people.
