The climate is changing – At this point, it doesn’t matter whether it is caused by human activity – we need to accept the reality and do everything we can to fight it! There are many things we can do to prevent, or at least slow the change of our climate – many of which help to solve other problems; Wind & solar also cuts our dependence on foreign oil, decreasing our energy cost tremendously, and creates training opportunities and many new jobs. It can be a win/win – how can we not act?
It should be a source of pride that alternative energy began here in America with solar panels. And that we have the ability to continue that legacy by using our technology to help to create new businesses and many more jobs.
And dealing with our changing climate is not something we can do alone. The US is second only to China in producing nearly the most CO2 emissions, while doing the least to solve this problem. We must explore joining the ‘Paris Agreement’ and do our part. As mentioned in the ‘Energy’ section, the migration to carbon sequestration and to alternative energy sources can create new educational opportunities and create many more jobs, making our economy more healthy than before.
