“Carbon footprint”, “global warming”, “climate change” and “greenhouse gases” are all words that are trending at the moment in the wake of COP26 negotiations which ended recently. Many of the negotiations centered around the effects the main offenders, some of them with the largest economies in the world, have on global warming and how they can move to achieve a net zero economy where economic activity is balanced by achieving a sustainable carbon footprint.
The finding is that the next decade is vital, with governments, business, and civil society needing to work together to change the way we power our homes and businesses by using clean power instead of coal and ‘dirty’ energy; growing and processing our food to reach net zero while also protecting and restoring forests and nature generally; developing zero emission vehicles to move goods around; and using science and innovative green technology to develop compliant infrastructure.
These are very noble and high-flying objectives that must be achieved, but how can we as individuals, take action ourselves and make a difference? It is essential that countries achieve their goals in lowering temperatures, and they need the help of every single one of us if we are to leave a planet that is habitable to our children and grandchildren.
Human activities cause greenhouse gas emissions, mainly carbon dioxide, which are released into the atmosphere. These greenhouse gases trap the heat from the sun and block it from escaping the atmosphere and thus contribute to global warming. Minimizing our carbon emissions is essential to solving this environmental predicament we find ourselves in.
It is important to become aware which of our daily activities add to our carbon footprint. After all, the higher our carbon footprint is, the more we contribute to the problem of global warming and climate change. With a few changes to certain aspects of our lifestyles, we can all make a difference to our environment.
It is vital for every one of us to reduce our carbon footprint as far as possible. Even the simplest action can make a difference, and a positive attitude coupled with commitment will help make the world a cleaner, better place for all of us. Climate change is here to stay and will affect all of us, so we need to adopt sustainable ways to mitigate our carbon footprint. It will require a combined effort not only from us as individuals, but from governments and big industry to ensure a clean environment for future generations.
