EarthEclipse shares ways readers can make their lives more environmentally friendly.
A new site, www.eartheclipse.com, has launched to help inform readers about the effects of climate change and how they can take steps to combat it.
Founded by Sonia Madaan, the site is designed to be a resource both to educate about the dangers the world faces from climate change and what steps users can take to reduce their carbon footprints and live more environmentally friendly lives.
“I want to help people understand what environmental issues our planet is facing right now,” Madaan said, “and how by taking small steps like switching to renewable energy sources, we can make this planet a better place for future generations.”
Already getting suffered by boast of environmental issues like climate change, increase in global warming, ocean acidification, ozone depletion, increase in pollution, loss of biodiversity, acid rain, natural resource depletion, overpopulation, waste disposal and many more, our planet requires some great initiative by various countries to come out with alternative solutions that could reduce the burden of these issues on our mother Earth.
As William Ruckelshaus rightly said, “Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites.”
This is absolutely true in the sense that we humans have been pushing this planet towards extinction by ways of our activities like deforestation, urban sprawl, release of toxic gases in the atmosphere and that day is not too far when we might have to even struggle to breathe clean air.
To that end, the site has already posted articles addressing major topics such as the effects and causes of climate change. One looks at the basics of climate change and defines that term, along with global warming. It also explained the reasons behind changing climate.
“As to why the climate is changing so drastically today, we would have to visit and address the root cause; humankind,” the post said. “Previously, scientists always believed that inherently natural processes were influencing climate change. They now know that this is no longer the case.”
Other posts are focused on stopping or slowing climate change. One post, about 10 possible solutions to climate change includes larger topics such as infrastructure improvements and investments in clean energy, as well as what individuals can do. Some suggestions include driving less, eating less meat, upgrading old appliances and using LED light bulbs.
“There are many steps which every individual can take in order to control climate change,” the site said. “It’s all about taking a small step. A small step by every person can make a big change. The more late we start, the more devastating effects of climate change we might have to face in the future.”
