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.
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.
Single use plastic carrier bags are the scourge of the environment. Not only do they create carbon emissions in their manufacture, but they can cause harm to wildlife and sea creatures and take a long time to decompose in increasingly-scarce landfill sites.
British supermarkets have realized that dealing with the problem is good for their costs and public image as well as the environment.
In 2008, seven supermarkets made a voluntary agreement to reduce the number of plastic bags given out by half, compared to the figures for the number of bags given out in 2006.
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.
The Economy, Global Warming and Unclean Energy Sources
The recent economic meltdown has left millions of Americans homeless and thousands fearing losing their jobs; many already have.
As the world struggles to dig itself out of recession, the green industry appears as a beacon of hope. In post-modern industrial world where the threats of global warming and climate change have been taken for granted, a digital world that seeks to be more earth-friendly is emerging. But irony or not, this seems to be the case.
Gavoitas can teach us a lot about how to deal with global warming. Located in Columbia’s Los Llanos region, it’s a village with about 150 residents. It was founded in the late sixties by Paolo Lugari together with friends from Bogota’s universities.
The land in Los Llanos is mainly savannah plans that get a lot of rain. Few people live there due to the poor soil quality. After flying over the area in 1965, Lugari wondered whether people could live there. He staked a claim to 25 000 hectares of land and Gavoitas – named after a local bird – was born.
I recently joined Facebook because I want to talk with you directly about solving the energy and climate change challenge and ensuring America’s leadership in a clean energy economy. I hope you will check out my new page at http://www.facebook.com/stevenchu
