THE BIG QUESTION --- CLIMATE CHANGE

CLIMATE CHANGE – The biggest challenge to life on earth. We think that power from a natural ‘Clean' ‘Free’ and ‘Abundant’ energy source like sunshine makes good sense. And there are lots of people (like you?) who think the same way:

SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC ELECTRICITY GENERATION:-


THE EVIDENCE

Since the Industrial Revolution, we have been releasing unprecedented amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) mostly from the burning of fossil fuels like coal. CO2 is the most significant global warming gas acting like a planetary duvet, trapping heat from the sun in our atmosphere.

The rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century’s last two decades were the hottest in 400 years; 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.
Global surface temperatures – which have stayed more or less stable since the dawn of civilisation – have increased by roughly 0.74 °C between the start and the end of the 20th century.

Global average temperatures could rise further 1.1 to 6.4 ºC this century, depending on the extent of continued greenhouse gas emissions.

Arctic ice is disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice los.
Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly melting – for example, Montana’s Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910.

All independent scientists agree that climate change is the biggest threat to human life on this planet. Of course some scientists working for carbon industries like big oil or car makers cast doubt on climate change to protect their vested interests.

We know fossil fuels will run out and should be used to make recyclable plastics and not burned in cars and power stations, the cost will increase a lot in future making renewable energy cheaper than carbon based energy.

Conclusion – the sooner we take on the renewable energy challenge and start seriously investing in solar, wind and wave energy systems the better our future will be, our grandchildren will have a good life. So get sceptical about the climate change sceptics and join the solution to a sustainable future for everyone.
