A World Problem that Affects You: Climate Change

It seems that there is so much has been said about the problems of global climate, of global warming and greenhouse effect. Most of the people are aware of at least basic aspects of these problems, about their sources and potential outcomes. Roughly there are two groups of individuals: those, who believe that they are able to change the world and those, who are convinced that nothing depends upon them and their actions and thus do nothing about it. These categories are polarized, still to some extent they both are right and wrong at the same time.

The changes in the environment are evident to the same extent as the problems, related to their consequences are also evident. People in various countries have already experienced the impact of climate change due to increase of the number of natural disaster, rapid changing of cooling and warming periods, changes of weather patterns, etc. Scientists state that the main reason for these processes is the fact that our planet is warming up and that all individuals are definitely related to it. For those people, who are ready to take urgent actions, there are lists of individual actions provided, which are rather simple, but are said to have significant impact upon global climate change.  There is no need to participate in any special activities; it is enough to change some of the daily routines in order to support the global climate. The key aspect is related to saving of energy. All individuals consume energy, sometimes they do not control the amount of this consumption, which is rather easy – just turning off of all appliances, which are not in use at he moment, introducing at least some of the innovations of smart homes- are the most simple examples of what could be done individually in this sphere. Nowadays the producers are aware of the idea of energy saving home environments, thus they offer led energy efficient lightning and other appliances, programmable thermostats, etc. Also individuals are suggested to consider installation of the sources of renewable energy. Healing water with the help of solar thermal system would lead to cost decline and environment support. Green electricity is another option, which is offered by renewable energy electricity providers.

This is not a secret that transportation is one of the main reasons of environmental pollution. Individuals are encouraged to choose bikes instead of cars or just walk, if the distance is not crucial. Purchase of an electric vehicle is another option, which however is more expensive. General shifting to low-meat diets is another aspect, which could be contributing to generation of less greenhouse gas emissions, because agricultural industry also has its effect upon climate change.

All these solutions are not that difficult to implement and they seem to be correct for all individuals of our planet, who are concerned about our climate change and its negative impact. At the same time, it is necessary to admit that people have created an industrialized world, there is little to no chance for them to return to their natural life conditions, when they lived in naturally built houses and ate only eco food. It is next to impossible to stop the process of the development of the technologies and science and all these developments are directly or indirectly related to climate change. This is the reason, why all the solutions, offered for individuals to stop climate change, are in fact just parts of the solution of the problem. At the moment there is probably no global universal initiative, which would solve the problem of climate change completely.
