Global Warming is Accelerating at an Alarming Pace

2016 was the third year in a row to set a global temperature record

According to data analysed by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 2016 is the third year in a row to set a new record global average surface temperature.

This supports the argument from scientists that our planet is changing in many ways, unless urgent action is taken the damage could be irreversible.

Global climate change is already having a huge effect on the environment, Glaciers have shrunk substantially, ice on lakes and rivers, if it even forms at all is dispersing earlier in the season and trees are flowering earlier.

Climate change has caused things such as extreme heat waves, hurricanes, droughts and flooding to not only become more frequent but also much more intense in recent years.

2015 saw some of the worst flooding on record with damages topping £5 billion, leaving thousands of families and businesses facing financial ruin.

Solar Panel funding Advertorial

When will the general public and our Government really start taking action?

There are a number of ways that every single one of us can help reduce our carbon emissions by learning how to lead greener lives.

If electricity generation is the single largest source of CO2 emissions that the world faces, why are so many people ignoring schemes to help homeowners install renewable energy products?

In many cases these schemes have absolutely no upfront costs to the homeowner and have huge benefits and savings, the average solar panel installation can save around 23 tonnes of CO2. (This is the equivalent to driving 6000 miles in a typical motor vehicle)

For many of us it could be as simple as switching of lights when we leave a room or switching electrical appliances off, for some useful tips on how you could help save the environment whilst also saving yourself money visit The Energy Saving Trust Website.

The simple fact remains that we are all responsible for climate change in some degree, and unless we are more open to change it will continue to worsen.
