Climate change.... what's the connection?

Energy production is a significant contributor to climate change. The burning of fossil fuels for energy releases greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere, which trap heat and cause global warming. The more energy that is produced through fossil fuels, the more greenhouse gases are emitted, exacerbating the effects of climate change. Therefore, transitioning to cleaner forms of energy production, such as renewable energy, is crucial for mitigating the impacts of climate change.

Renewable energy

reduces carbon emissions

Renewable energy reduces carbon emissions because it does not rely on fossil fuels for power generation. Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas, are sources of energy that release greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, when burned. These greenhouse gases contribute to global warming and climate change.

In contrast, renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, and biomass, do not emit greenhouse gases during power generation. For example, solar panels generate electricity from sunlight, and wind turbines generate electricity from wind. These technologies harness natural, renewable resources without producing emissions.

By increasing the use of renewable energy, we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and lower carbon emissions, helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.
