Today, I wanted to talk about some of the latest technological improvements in the energy solutions industry. People are largely unaware of the improvements made to create clean energy, lower emissions, and reduce our ecological footprint. This lack of education is what leads people to be wasteful, because they don’t realize there is more to life than what corporations have to offer them. Thus, I wanted to take the time, and list out some of the improvements made that go a long way in helping restore our environment.
With more and more people becoming environmentally aware, more work is being done to find sustainable, renewable, and clean energy, that doesn’t produce waste or harmful, destructive chemicals. To that end, green technology has made huge leaps and strides in the past twenty-five years. However, we still have a long way to go. Our work in solar, wind, and hydrothermal technology has come a long way, but improvements could still be made. However, environmental solutions are not just limited to these fields. Scientists all over the world are pioneering new ways to go green, and help you lead a cleaner life, some of which are more interesting, and some of which are downright bizarre.
The European Union’s recent pledge to reduce emissions by thirty percent has created a buzz in the international community. But their proposal has met a lot of criticism, as well as positive response. This is no surprise, as the goal this political organization promises seems to fall short of actual environmental promise. After all, the proposal allows for coal factories and age-old power plants to continue operation until the 2030 deadline. Energy activists however, argue that expanding the energy market will not only reduce emissions by over forty percent (see the EU’s numbers above), but it will also provide jobs to over three million Europeans.
