This little blue planet, to the best of our knowledge at this time, has the only life in the universe. There is no one out there and we do not have a second backup place to call home. This is a fact that a lot of people seem to ignore or forget or simply do not care about because we are a species on this planet that has done nothing but waste and destroy all that this planet has to offer.
All of this had led to one simple and, basically inevitable point of time where we are now on the verge of coming to a point where we can no longer go back and our planet will be hard set on a path that will certainly leave this planet another barren and dusty place like Mars. If this a reality that we want to avoid, not just for ourselves but also for our families, then it time, right now to take action and do something so that we can save our home planet and make a difference because we are very close to that zeroth hour.
Stop Using Harmful Sources of Power and Energy
Since oil and coal were discovered, humans have accelerated our development in leaps and bounds. However, in all that time we did not stop for one moment to try and think if what we are doing is the right thing and what impact this has on our planet and others around us in the long run. We have been a species that always try to get ahead as an individual and never as a whole. This has led to very dangerous practices like burning coal for electricity or by using nuclear energy.
Now while some may say that nuclear is clean energy, the truth is that the waste products from it may not go directly into the atmosphere but it does produce tons upon tons of highly radioactive waste that cannot be simply thrown out for hundreds or even thousands of years. This is why it is important to use solar panels Melbourne as an alternative. This has to be a national policy where governments invest in solar power plants and individuals invest in making their homes solar power. This will hugely reduce the need for power which will mean that the power we make from clean and renewable sources will become a more viable option.
Stop Throwing Everything Away
Another huge problem with humans is that we do not want to have to re-use anything. The effort to clean something and then use it for the second time is something that most people are finding very hard to do. As a solution to this problem, unfortunately, people have opted to use one-time usable plastics which are made very cheaply.
However, the true cost of this is not really shown as plastics do not naturally decay in nature and as a result, once these are thrown out to the lands or seas, they do not perish but just stay on and on. To stop this, we as individuals have to start using reusable like plates and metal straws, which we can keep and use over and over again. In addition to this we have to ask our industries to start making more degradable items so that even though we throw things away, they would not harm our planet.Read More →
