Energy efficiency, consumption, and global climate change are linked. With something of a reminder of all of this, writer and concerned citizen Jacklyn Nicholson is here to present a visual representation of these connections.
There are endless reasons why it is important to save energy. But the question remains whether people actually understand just how important it is. As humans, we tend to over consume resulting in over production of resources. Not to mention the amount of carbon dioxide we produce while doing so.
By 2020, it is estimated that there will be 10,000 million metric tons of CO2. While there are laws in place to keep energy efficiency a top priority, it still isn’t enough. Considering the world’s population, in order to be successful in this battle, every household needs to invest in energy efficient solutions.
From appliances, to lighting and insulation, there are many changes you can make to your home in order to be more energy efficient. Check out this infographic on saving energy in your home. How are you saving the world?”
