Invest In Our Planet With Our Energy-Saving Tips

Global warming is caused by human activity mainly due to release of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide when we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas

The time to act is now. Climate change and global warming threat is for real and is the biggest challenges of our time. The world needs to come together and invest for a more sustainable green future.


Why should we invest in our planet?

Earth's temperature has risen by 0.08*C (0.14°F) per decade since 1880, and the rate of warming over the past 40 years is twice more than that, 0.18*C (0.32°F) per decade since 1981. In 2021 the average worldwide temperature was almost 1.11°C above the pre-industrial levels.

Global warming is caused by human activity mainly due to release of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide when we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas. It has already had noticeable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up a lot sooner, plant and animal ranges have shifted. Consequently, there is loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise, longer and more intense heat waves, more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought in some regions and an increase in the tropical storms like typhoons, hurricanes etc velocity, frequency and duration. The biodiversity loss we would suffer through an increase of 1.5°C would be catastrophic, but if the rise were to be in the order of 2°C, the consequences would be unimaginable and destructive. The plant, insect and animal species would vanish, including mostly all coral reefs.

The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have shown noticeable decrease in mass. Information from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment shows Greenland lost a normal of 279 billion tons of ice each year somewhere in the range of 1993 and 2019, while Antarctica has lost around 148 billion tons of ice yearly. The worldwide ocean level rose around 8 inches (20 centimetres) somewhat recently.

If we do not act now then the situation is going to worsen. The planet needs our help to avoid these situations. Serious modification and reshaping is required not only in private business, government policies but in the society as well. We need an emergency investment in our planet.

What should we do to invest in our planet?

Passive Solar

Passive Solar technique is a way in which the heat energy produced by the sun is used to warm an interior space. In passive solar homes, the windows and doors are made south facing to capture as much sunlight as possible. It also reduces the use of electrical energy for lighting during the day. Thick and insulated walls are also a great example of Passive Solar technique. These walls keep the house cool in summers and prevent heat escape in winters.

Green Roofs

A green roof is a layer of vegetation planted over a waterproofing system that is installed either partially or completely on top of a sloped building roof. In spite of the fact that the establishment of a green rooftop generally includes higher forthright expenses than a conventional rooftop, there are numerous financial advantages that can compensate for this. Expanded R-value of the material framework, alongside decreased temperatures on the rooftop diminish HVAC loads, bringing about energy cost savings.

Use Of Renewable Energy

One needs to shift from thermal power to cleaner, green renewable sources of energy. Solar Energy is one viable options for homes and businesses. Already lot of innovations and subsidies are available in this field.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

By reducing the amount consumed, re-using wherever possible and recycling whatever possible, one can cut down on the emissions.

Air Drying

If not residing in a particularly humid climate, air-drying your clothes can be a great way to save money and electricity but it is also very gentle on your clothes and the planet. It saves not only on cost but energy also. By and large one can save around six percent of home's energy utilization every year.

Reduce the usage of tech gadgets

Eliminate the quantity of hardware you "must" have. Just module gear as you really want it to guarantee you're not wasting power. In the event that you charge your cell phone around evening time, take a stab at doing as such after supper and turning off it before you hit the sack. Most telephones just need a little while to totally charge. Same goes for LED TVs and other gadgets.

Usage of Coldwater

Some 75% of the energy expected to do a heap of clothing is spent warming the water. By washing with cold water, you save on energy, and additionally it increases the lifespan of your dress. Washing by cold water is also gentler on your garments and more averse to making colors blur.

LED Lighting

Setting aside energy and cash can be essentially as simple as exchanging a light. LED lights are not just significantly more energy-productive than bulbs, they also additionally last longer.

The above are just a few simple and easy steps that we can follow in our daily life to invest in our planet on an individual level. Act now!
