Climate Change and Renewable Energy Sources

Everyone is talking about climate change. We have been hearing about global warming for quite a few years now and the talks are getting ever so persistent. And recently weathermen have come up on the news to speak about the climate change again, and considering the bipolar weather we are getting in Europe, people are starting to listen. Climate change is a result of many factors, and not all of them are connected to seasons and the planet’s revolving around the sun. Pollution often has its say, but is it a reason for all the changes in the weather? And if so, what does that mean for the future.

One thing for sure is that people can stay assured about solutions being worked on. And a lot of those solutions are connected with the pollution and especially its limiting thanks to all the renewable energy sources: sunlight, wind, rain, geothermal heat, and tides. It has already been established in the Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN) report that renewable energy contributes to economical development, energy access, climate change mitigation, and reduces all the negative health and environmental impacts. This energy makes use of nature’s refillable resources and does not dip into the wilderness, forests, and other things that cause negative effects. It uses the sources that come outside of the planet, or its inner workings, and does not take away from it. That means fewer reasons for pollution and less environmental impact, which results in significant climate change mitigation.

So don’t worry – with the advancement of technology and the achievements being made around renewable energy sources, the climate will not start doing even more harm anytime soon. When technology gains momentum, we will reap the benefits and won’t think about any consequences.
