Climate change is arguably one of the greatest environmental threats the world is facing. The impacts of disruptive change leading to catastrophic events such as storms, droughts, sea level rise and floods are already being felt across the world. While the Kyoto Protocol, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is slowly impacting on energy markets, scientists are increasingly advising policymakers that carbon emission reductions of beyond 60% are needed over the next 40-50 years. How will we achieve such a dramatic reduction in carbon emissions?
Renewable energy provides one of the leading solutions to the climate change issue. By providing ‘carbon-neutral’ sources of power, heat, cooling and transport fuels, renewable energy options such as wind, solar, biomass, hydro, wave and tidal offer a safe transition to a low carbon economy
Reducing Fossil Fuel Use is the Key Solution
The climate change problem is essentially a fossil fuel energy problem. While agriculture, land-use changes, cement production and the use of chemicals all contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, more than 70% of the problem is due to the unsustainable use of fossil fuels. The climate change challenge means shifting away from fossil fuels in the home, industry, at work and the way we travel. Furthermore, global energy demand is predicted to rise as countries industrialise and population continues to grow.
Renewable Energy can provide everything that fossil fuels currently offer in terms of energy services and by that dramatically reduce Climate Change Gas emissions:
