Think of a future, a disastrous one; where the air is too polluted to breathe. An era when you will face massive scarcity of water. Seems pretty horrifying to live, we believe. However, while concerning the rapid increase in fossil fuel consumption and release of carbon dioxide, that day is not so far when living on the planet Earth will be pretty daunting for mankind.
Alarming Aftermath of Fossil Fuel Consumption
Needless to say, the voracious consumption of fossil fuels directly raises up the CO2 levels in atmosphere which, in turn, leads to Global Warming. The aftermaths are radical climate change, increased natural calamities including hurricanes, scarcity of resources thereby, making our lives worse with each passing day. Thus, scientists have brought up new methodologies and technologies to stop global warming that would lessen down the level of fossil fuel consumption and decrease the level of CO2 release.
The Upsurge of Alternative Energy Sources Consumption
Building a World without fossil fuel consumption is certainly a healthier and cleaner place to live. It means lesser pollution, lesser environmental hazards, lesser oil spills, lesser need for huge reserves, lesser adverse effect on mankind and no more trouble with price fluctuations. Having these in mind, a galore of alternative energy sources have come into the bigger picture which are renewable and less-pollution drivers. Following here is a list of them.
Investing in solar energy-based equipment is believed to be a smarter long-term investment to stop global warming by reducing the carbon footprint. The solar panel systems will help users to save big on costs (both on utility and maintenance). Moreover, with solar cookers, solar heaters, solar chargers and other products, you can bring more value to your home. The contribution to environment welfare will be driving the society away from fossil fuel usage. Resultantly, it will eliminate the release of carbon footprint thereby, limiting the scope of global climate change.
The skyrocketing prices of petrol and diesel have led many of us to switch to bio gas, which is indeed a low capital investment. Being a renewable and eco-friendly source, it has minimised the over reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, it will decrease the level of waste which, is being dumped into landfills as well. With Bio Gas plants, waste collection and management units are also popping up within the locality. Thus, it will lead to improved sanitation facilities and promote hygiene in the environment.
Hydro power has been ‘talk of the town’ for the recent years, as it has great potential to cater the demand for energy within mankind in an environment-friendly manner. Being a renewable and clean energy source, the hydropower electric plants do not emit huge amount of greenhouse gases as in the case for fossil fuel sources. Thus, it brings a win-win situation for people which, is cost-efficient and instill sustainability as well.
Numerous efforts are being made each day to find out newer techniques of preventing global warming. However, still, there is a long way to go as many people do not have sufficient knowledge on the greenhouse and practicable approaches to combat it. Thus, with determined minds and strong willpower, let us proceed with our voyage to make our planet Earth better.
