Global Warming is a natural and comprehensible phenomenon caused by human influence. It refers to the gradual rise of Earth’s surface temperature eventually leading to drastic climatic calamities and possible extinction of life on the Blue Planet. If you are wondering as how to reduce global warming then be assured that there are simpler practices which can be followed by both individuals and large groups.
Today, many products that consume some kind of fuel are available in two types – regular and energy efficient. From automobiles to humble lamps, production companies are pushing hard to deliver maximum efficiency. The masses only need to choose energy/fuel efficient goods over otherwise. The impact of such consciousness can be comprehended from the extent to which automobiles and ordinary electrical/electronic devices are incorporated into daily lives of people. In this way every young and old can play a crucial part to reduce global warming.
Public transportation and carpooling
Trains, metros, buses, trams, ferries, etc. are the best form of transportation wherever and as far as they are available. Any means of mass transit can carry more people for less energy when compared to private cars. The affluent citizens who do not find the idea favourable can offer ride to a few fellow citizens. This is a way to optimise fuel consumption and subsequently reduce global warming.
Reuse and recycle
Manufacturing from raw resources requires more energy and causes more emission. Instead recycling the materials is the best option as they are already half-done and thus reduce both cost and emission. Thus, purchasing reusable and recyclable products is one of the best ways to reduce global warming. Persistent effort by several NGOs has compelled many production companies to manufacture good form of from recyclable products. Interestingly, the number of recycling companies is steadily increasing too. Regular public can be part of this noble effort by sending bottles, cans, glass, electronic/electrical/mechanical devices, etc. for recycling. Many companies even send their agents to collect recyclable useless items. A small step further would be to ascertain that recycled/recyclable goods are purchased for occasional or daily use.
By far, it is the broadest, deepest and extremely impactful concept and includes global Warming too. While larger-than-seemingly-possible projects are being debated upon, even an ordinary citizen can harvest energy and natural resources.
Solar panels, depending upon their sizes, numbers and material, can generate energy for a small room to entire buildings. If only majority of families and offices adopt solar energy, the Earth will be spared from millions of tonnes of Carbon fume. Admitted, initially the investment might seem heavy. However, the technology has steady effect on annual expense of the family or business.
In fact, there are a few inspirational people who have sustainably modified their homes to reduce global warming and, as result, pay ‘zero’ energy bills. Water harvesting is rather a simple mechanism and ensures that motor pumps would not be required, at least throughout monsoon.
