Climate change isn’t just bad for mother earth and nature but also for us as humans. Depending upon the age, gender, geographic and socio economic status the effects of climate change shall vary from person to person and country to country. As many as 880,000 Australian jobs could be lost by 2070 due to unchecked climate change, according to a report released by Deloitte Access Economics last year. Let’s take an example of bush fires. Since September 2019 to January 2020 Australia bushfires have burned around millions hectares of land impacting public and mental health and increasing economic costs. What does this mean for Australia’s infrastructure and country as a whole?
There is a bright side to it. A report, charts a $3.4 trillion loss in GDP by 2070 under a business-as-usual scenario, also found that embracing the net zero transition could create more than 250,000 jobs in that same period. An article from RenewEconomy states Australia has the highest per capita coal emissions in the G20 – and in the world – at 5.34 tonnes of CO2 per year. The average Australian emits 5x more CO2 from coal power than the average person globally, and almost 2x as much as the average person in China. Australia uses a lot of coal to produce electricity thus leading to more emissions. Now is the time to take action rather than talk about climate change. We aren’t doing this for the country, we have to do this for us. Healing the planet starts from your home.
How can you contribute towards climate change?
1. Power your home with solar energy
The best part about our planet is we are blessed with immense source power for free, meaning solar energy. We are all aware and have read about the financial and environmental benefits of installing solar on our roof. The energy costs are constantly rising in Australia, and the rebates are set to reduce from January 2022. So why not make our roof work for us? Install a rooftop solar with Arise Solar at a never before price. The black Friday sale is on until the stock lasts. Book your solar system now to save huge on your solar deals.
2. Reduce your carbon footprints
The Clean Energy Regulator has named Australia’s 10 highest carbon emitters, with coal-fired generators taking out the majority of positions. Along with households commercials also need to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. Commercials emitting high amounts of greenhouse gases due to high electric usage, need to shift to renewable energy sources and install a solar system. This not only helps you reduce your carbon footprints but also your energy costs. Arise solar offers versatile solar solutions with reliable and efficient systems.
3. Consider EV vehicles
If you are considering buying a new vehicle, consider EV vehicles. EV vehicles are cheaper and easy to maintain, thus leading to low maintenance costs. They do not trouble you with varying fuel prices. EV vehicles are easy to drive and are environmentally friendly. The charging EV vehicles need can be generated from the power produced by your solar panels. We recommend installing a slightly bigger solar panel system at your property to offset the rising energy needs of the future.
