Climate change is very difficult to deny especially with the past few years being the warmest recorded averages in the last thousand years.
Understanding where we could curve our habits to potentially reduce the signs of global warming can be important for preventing further destruction in our world. Here are some of the top three causes of global warming:
Electricity and Heat
Many nations around the world continue to burn fossil fuels for electricity and heat. Emissions from this power generation are responsible for nearly 30% of global greenhouse gas. Statistically speaking, if you are taking your power from an electricity grid that still uses fossil fuels, you are contributing to one of the largest causes of global warming.
Shipping, driving, flying and more Stan is one of the largest causes of global climate change. It’s estimated that nearly 15% of all greenhouse gases are produced as a result of burning fossil fuels in transportation. As the second largest cause of global warming, choosing to reduce the amount of time that you spend on the road or opting to carpool can be a wise decision.
The Manufacturing and Construction industry
Manufacturing and construction often cause emissions. With progress on construction sites, you often have to run generators, equipment and more. The emissions from the construction and manufacturing industry are activities that remain in some of the top offenders for causes with global warming. These industries can contribute just over 13% of all the emissions worldwide. Finding solutions in construction and manufacturing for conservation could be very important moving forward.
Keep some of these top three causes in mind with global warming and remember that you can work at changing your own habits to reduce your carbon footprint.
