Exploring other solutions to tackle climate change

| October 23, 2015

Governments on state and federal level have the opportunity and obligation to act on climate change. Laurence Strano identifies a couple of areas where we could tackle the issue more decisively.

Research has shown that by investing in climate efficient smart buildings, transportation efficient systems and waste management effective systems, co2 emissions could be effectively reduced by 25 per cent. Savings by as much as $17 trillion could be achieved. Considerably more can be done on this issue by governments at all levels.

The methods of modern warfare such as chemical weapons and bombing cause destruction that not only caused devastation to human beings but huge problems for the environment, yet no efforts are unilaterally being taken to address this issue. Clearly until significant steps are taken one can only be very concerned about prospects of more Pompeii type historical events. The UN needs to address this and effectively police and prosecute these issues as matters of mass destruction.

The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) estimates that livestock accounts for 18 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions – that is more than all forms of fossil based transport combined. This suggests that the more vegetarians there are, the better for the environment.

Similarly we have to applaud and explore other solutions. For example “blue carbon”, which is coastal vegetation, studies have shown in the UAE sequester carbon far more effectively than terrestrial forests, and hence we need to conserve these important ecosystems.

We need to wake up to these aspects and ensure potential dangers such as another devastation due to natural disasters do not occur.

    No climate change without corporate profit change.

    Hello, There are solutions: Two gravity driven energy generators known as the Pinwheel Generator, and the Power Multiplier. The Grow-Live Tower that has the living quarters on the lower 20 levels, and the greenhouse levels on the upper 60 levels, providing the food the resident need. Together they would end world hunger, homelessness, shrink population centers to minimize the foot print, electric cars recharging on the ground level would eliminate exhause, reduce global disease by 85% through better living conditions, plus much more. Eliminate the invented money system where there is an assigned money value for everything in order to keep the people poor and powerless. But as long as mega-corps can slash and burn at will, nothing will be done. Russ
