Going Green

If we want to last as long as we can on this planet we will need to act in a more sustainable way. This means that we need to live in a way that can continue indefinitely with the resources that are available to us. Many people sum this up in the phrase, “Going green.” Something that’s green may not be referring to its color but to how eco-friendly it is. Examples that make things green are if they use renewable resources, if they are safe for the environment, if they are biodegradable, if they are energy efficient, and anything else that may help the environment. Often this is specifically talking about things that may affect the weather and create climate change. Climate change could lead to global warming which may melt the ice caps and cause catastrophic flooding, make severe weather more common like hurricanes or tornadoes, and higher temperatures may also lead to more wildfires.

What can we do? Why is it happening?

Too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may be causing global warming, so reducing everyone’s carbon footprint would help humanity become carbon neutral. By going green we will be reducing the amount of carbon released in the atmosphere which will slow the warming of the atmosphere and prevent many potential disasters!
