Faced with climate change, renewable technology will undoubtedly boost public health. But we battle with Covid-19 at this juncture. Vaccination process has already begun in several countries. In comparison, things are returning to normal. We do have a long way to go, though. We should speak of climate change and why environmental health in the world today before we start talking about renewable energy solutions.

In the term ‘climate change’ the global climate changes on earth are seen by the rise in average temperatures and irritable rainfall because of natural factors, and by the human intervention as well.

2020 was marked by an unprecedented pandemic with more than half of the world shutting down to cope with the growing threat of the coronavirus. During this time, economies suffered from lockdowns which forced people to be confined in their homes, potentially unemployed.

But despite the societal cost, the first lockdowns highlighted an astonishing discovery. Due to major industries and factories being shut for long periods of time, pollution and emissions had also reached a new low.

For the first time in decades, the Himalayas were visible from all over northern India. Traffic pollution in London decreased by more than…

Fossil fuels have dominated the energy industry in the world since the industrial revolution began. This has largely had negative implications for our global climate and living beings inhabiting this planet.

To prevent further damage, the world needs to make a shift towards low carbon energy production. Renewable energy is becoming a key player in decarbonizing our economies with several nations investing in sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar and nuclear.

Global Green Energy Commitments

In 2015, the Paris Agreement set a global target of net zero emissions to be achieved in the latter half of the 21st century. …


Wind and solar are only the tip of the green energy technology iceberg
Wind and solar are only the tip of the green energy technology iceberg

Green energy developments are picking up steam: Facebook is investing in wind farms, NextEra Energy surpasses Exxon in market value, and Tesla tops the S&P 500. The development of renewable energy technologies has been essential in reducing these impacts on the climate and saving our planet.

Green energy is the new normal.

But while solar and wind efforts dominate the green energy discourse, there are still other options that need to be explored.

Nuclear

Nuclear energy may be the most controversial of the green energy solutions. The processing plants are unsightly and require a significant amount of space. And after the…


Humans are capable of systematically altering their environment, that means we’re able to bring it back to it’s initial state. Ever since the first locomotive ran across the Wild West, a slow reconciliation has been signed, a sacred pact between technological creation and it’s impending price.

It is hard not to associate climate change with politics, but we should. In the 21st century, America has grown to be divided and furiously inconclusive in it’s leadership, yet the horizons promise a new and eventful change towards something that’s been brewing for a long time in the direction of climate protection. …

The world held its breath as the United States painstakingly counted every vote in the 2020 Election. After four years of unpredictable leadership (if that’s what you’d call it), the nation has damaged its reputation and relationship with the rest of the world.

But luckily, the American people voted for a better, greener future on November 3rd. Citizens danced in the streets and celebrated the end of a turbulent period in their history. But the work has only begun.

Joe Biden, the Democrat president-elect, revealed a $2 trillion economic stimulus plan earlier this year, and has promised to re-join the…


When people want to escape the stress of their own lives, they visit small island states throughout the world for a chance to breathe. They bask in a foreign sense of peace and leave their worries behind. Yet the very existence of some of these islands is threatened by the rising sea levels associated with climate change. That doesn’t sound like a very relaxing prospect, does it?

It has long been recognized that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from small islands are negligible in relation to global emissions, while the rest of the world continues to greedily devour oil and natural…


Cryptocurrency can change the way we fund green energy companies
Cryptocurrency can change the way we fund green energy companies

In the face of a dying oil industry, even the supermajors know it’s a matter of time. BP revealed their plans to invest in renewable energy, and Total SE predicts that oil demand will end by 2030.

The world has built massive economies around the black gold, but it’s no longer a reliable source for fuel or income. And with so much wealth tied to oil, everyone is scrambling to invest in alternative securities.

It’s no wonder that people are buying cryptocurrencies.

Crypto seems to scare most people because of its association with dark money, criminal activity, and the market…


Our home is on fire. It’s time to switch to green energy to stop climate change
Our home is on fire. It’s time to switch to green energy to stop climate change

Every day we look at our phones and the world doesn’t seem to get any better. Forests are burning. The ocean is rising. The pandemic is raging. People are dying.

And it’s making people rightfully angry.

Time and time again, the answer is clear: we need to stop relying on fossil fuels. They account for 85 percent of global energy while contributing to two thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Only a select few continue to prosper from oil, but their reign is coming to an end.

We beg and plead and protest governments and businesses to make change…


The 20th century saw unprecedented growth, largely due to fossil fuels. We built our daily existence around its production and consumption. Our use of oil has given us more jobs, leisure time, cheaper goods, and affordable travel — just to name a few benefits. Oil has made our lives richer and more efficient.

But it came at a cost.

Oil spills have destroyed ecosystems. A disregard for regulations has led to health catastrophes around the world. Politics and wars escalate over the precious resource.

Yet we continue to perpetuate and witness the devastating effects of our dependence on oil. While…
