Moving towards the Sustainable World!
Is anyone of you fond of the concept of Sustainability? Well, to be really honest, people just do not want to consider sustainability a good alternative for the energy crisis we are in.
Designers are struggling so hard to embed the concept of sustainability into people’s minds. Now, it is high time we start aiming at sustainability. All of us are pretty much aware of the fact that we will not be able survive if we don’t consider sustainable options for our future survival. It is just that people find it really difficult to get out of their comfort zones and make decisions that would make a difference to the world.
Climate is a grave problem. When we have overwhelming problems ahead of us, we tend to seek simple answers. Now when we think about the climate change, it is important to figure out the major cause behind it. Let us have a look at the sources of emissions that are causing climate change.
So, where are the emissions coming from?
The emissions are coming out of tailpipes and smokestacks, so basically the emissions are coming out because of the burning of fossil fuels. So, we need to figure out how we could replace fossil fuels with an alternative source and clean source of energy that would not be hazardous to the life on earth.
And the fact is we do need clean energy in order to get out of the energy crisis that we are already in.
Our world is rapidly urbanizing. In fact by mid century, the world population will be 8 billion or more. This is one of the major problems why we are heading towards energy crisis with such great speed.
The amount of energy that will have to be generated for the kind of lifestyle we have at present in the west will be astonishingly difficult. Generating clean energy is extremely difficult and it is possible that we may not be able to generate as much as clean energy that will be required on our rapidly urbanizing world.
So what is the solution for this? This is something that is worrying everyone constantly. Coming up with a solution could be an easy job but making the masses agree to the solutions is something that could take years. People are not ready to accept that we are already past the peak of the non-renewable energy resources. Now it is time that we look forward in the future to be able to survive.
For all of you reading this article…
“Our earth does not need sustainability to survive. It is us who need it. Earth will be able to survive another ice age but would we be able to?”
We will look at different aspects of how sustainability could make a difference and make the world a better place to live in, in our succeeding articles…
