News about our environment

Most people know that pollution is bad and that you can choose to do some good activities for the environment conservation in order to survive in healthy conditions on the planet. What they may not know is how bad everything could get if these issues are ignored, why renewable energy is good and what other problems are already worse than in the past. Although there are some signs of willingness to make changes, there are still plenty of things to do.

To give you a perspective of why you should go green, there are some things both fun and scary that you need to be familiar with. You may already know that climate change is real, but what you do not know is that the average temperatures will increase by 12 degrees Fahrenheit until the 21st century ends and that will create a major impact on living beings, water and food supplies and more. Use sustainable energy sources to protect the habitat.

Another fact to consider is that one ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 60 pounds of air pollution or 3, 2 cubic yards of garbage lots. Despite these problems, people continue to recycle and composted one-third of waste. Air pollution has become a great concert as only 1% of the city residents in China are able to breathe air considered to be safe and that the pollution clouds that linger all over Asia continue to spread up to Los Angeles.

Not only air but water could also be problematic. Due to contamination and inefficient watering systems the amount of safe to use water has declined over the years and only less than 1% of the world’s fresh water is immediately available for humans. What was once considered to be an abundant resource, in the future it will be a scarce necessity.

Over 27, 000 trees are cut daily only for the toilet paper industry. It is estimated that an average of 137 animal species disappear daily due to massive deforestation. In the past half of the century, the entire population has consumed more resources than in all history. These things are meant to give the government a good perspective of how some habits can be changed for a better tomorrow. Make the earth suitable for all species and shield it from harmful actions.
