Our ignorance is not an excuse for the destruction of the planet. We must wake up and begin to take the green movement seriously.
Most scientists agree that the worsening climatic conditions and the rapidly changing environment are a direct consequence of human negligence. The ignorance shown by the human race towards its environment brought about a situation where it’s a viable possibility that we might lose the very planet we live on. Unless the people start paying attention to their ecological system and give importance to the world in which they live in, their days on earth might as well be numbered.
The green movement is an initiative that has been created in order to bring about a change in the way the natural resources of Earth are being utilized by people. The main agenda of this movement is quite simple: save the natural resources of the planet and make it a healthier place to live in. For this purpose, a lot of guidelines have been established. These guidelines serve as a compass to people to do their part to save the environment. One of the most important one is to stop using the existing methods of energy usage and move towards greener sources of energy.
The existing methods of energy generation that are in use depend heavily on oil, coal and natural gas. All of these materials produce carbon dioxide during the process causing indescribable damage to the environment. Therefore, greener methods of energy generation have been introduced that bear no threat to the environment. Some of these methods are:
The Carbon Footprint of a home depends on the number of greenhouse gases that the home is responsible for releasing in to the atmosphere through its electricity usage. The more energy the home uses for its heating or cooling systems the more greenhouse gas emissions it becomes responsible for. Energy efficient heating systems reduce energy by making use of sustainable technologies to reduce the production of the harmful gases, and the carbon footprint of a home.
