The whole globe is counting down. Without a “transformative change” in our energy systems, scientists warn that climate change will pose a “catastrophic threat” to human.
There are many causes of climate change, the most significant of which are the increase in greenhouse gases, the rapid melting of glaciers, and animal agriculture.
Our need for energy is growing along with the world’s population and modernization. Unfortunately, we are burning more fossil fuels to fulfill a large portion of this demand. Simply put, neither governments nor businesses are spending enough money on renewable energy sources.
With the possibility of uncontrollable weather patterns causing starvation, mass migration, droughts, and flooding, we are being led into a more gloomy future.
We are all concerned about the implications that climate change, global warming, and the depletion of non-renewable resources may have on the planet’s inhabitants.
There are two options available to us: 1) ignore it; 2) you decide to take action to improve the environment.
What do we do?
We decided to take our efforts on energy conservation strategies because we can benefits outselves from it. Although we can’t do much about the energy supply, we can do something to deal with climate changes:
- Talk climate every chance you get. Even in the supermarket checkout line.
- Join climate action groups. There are many, with different (and complementary) tactics and goals. Ask around. This empowers you for many reasons. But it also helps you stay sane.
- Walk the talk. This is the “traditional” stuff: you know, fly less, eat less meat, bike more. Once you start letting the reality of climate breakdown percolate down to your emotional core, it might not feel good to keep burning the stuff. More importantly, walking the talk will make your voice more authentic and powerful.
- Self care. Get enough sleep, eat well, get exercise, meditate.
- Get creative.
