Climate Change - What can we do about it?
🔆Climate is the average weather in a place over many years and Climate change is a shift in those average conditions. The Earth is now in a period of rapid climate change, with global temperatures rising at an alarming rates.
😔Climate change will transform the way we live, causing water shortages and making it harder to produce food. Extreme weather events like heatwaves, downpours and storms - will become more frequent and intense, threatening lives and livelihoods.
What can we do about it?
🏭Reduce Carbon Footprint and Greenhouse Gas is the key.
1. Eat less meat & dairy
🍗By reducing your consumption of animal protein by half, you can cut your diet's carbon footprint by more than 40%.
2. Take public transport
🚌A full bus can take 40 cars off the road. Cars contribute almost 50% of road transport related emissions.
🚴♀️Instead of getting in the car, walk or cycle – and enjoy the physical and mental health benefits, and the money saved.
3. Switch to 100% green power
Throughout the world, the use of energy represents by far the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activity. By converting to green electricity you support the phase-out of coal.
♻️Do your bit to change to renewable sources and directly reduce CO2 emissions.
4. Save energy
🔌Switch off the lights, unplug your charger when not in use, reduce water consumption by doing laundry on full load etc.
5. Mind your digital footprint
👩💻Every search query we type, every email we send or receive, and every song and movie we stream causes CO2 emissions.
Why? Because energy is needed for all the data we’re producing - and a lot of it! By 2021, the use of digital technologies had overtaken even the aviation industry in terms of CO2 emissions.
