Our actions have negatively impacted the ecology and biophysical environment of the globe for decades. Ever since we started using carbon based fossils as a source of energy to fuel our industries, machineries, and homes, we have been impacting the globe through carbon emissions and other forms of pollution.

Carbon and other equivalent green house gases have already exceeded 400 parts per million, which is considered the tipping point, or the threshold, where greenhouse gases can cause harmful environmental changes.

When we connect the dots, we can easily find the correlation between global warming, climatic changes, extreme weather and effects on human health. The record heat,  floods, droughts, forest fires, hurricanes and storms should make the message clear that we are doing something very wrong to the globe. Scientists are discovering that the extreme weather patterns are effects of global warming. The main reasons why our globe is getting hotter is carbon emission, greenhouse gases, and pollution.

Clean energy sources

Say “no” to dirty energy sources! The United States is the largest oil consuming nation in the world and we are at a crossroads today with choosing the right source of energy. Scientists predict that using fossil fuels as a source of energy will soon become a thing of the past. Using alternative sources of energy, such as wind and solar power, aren’t more costly than using fossil fuel and have long term environmental and health benefits. Renewable energy sources do not pollute the environment by emitting harmful gases, so we remain healthier. Our economy will prosper too if we create new jobs that do not depend on fossils and reduce global warming.
