Going green- these two words are getting plenty of media coverage these days. Internet, newspapers, TV- they all say our society should go green in order to help our environment, and our planet in general. But what have we actually done to help our environment? The answer is not that much. It is still plenty of talk and very little action.
Go green means doing the necessary steps to improve the environmental state of our planet. The start of industrial revolution has done plenty of goods in terms of tehcnological development of our civilization but has also caused major damage to our environment in the process. If we continue this trend humanity will come to the point of no return, and we will be left with no options to save our planet from the worst possible scenario.
This can be done on many different ways, and anything you do for our environment matters. You can do recycling and reusing when possible, taking shorter showers, not taking your car when not necessary, using less electricity, or let some renewable energy system to cover the energy demand of your household. Many small things can in the end turn out to be one big thing. But how to convince people to go green? Do we use scientific or economic reasons when explaining them?
Scientific reasons are associated with different environmental problems like water and air pollution or for instance climate change and global warming. You can try to explain to people that if we continue this current trend of over-exploiting our planet all these problems will further grow in years to come, and will threat the survival of many people across the globe.
