Until recently the battle to avert catastrophic climate change – floods, droughts, famine, mass migrations – seemed to be lost. But with the tipping point just years away, the tide is finally turning, thanks to innovations ranging from cheap renewables to lab-grown meat and electric airplanes. For more click here.
1) Supporting big businesses who are embracing the challenge and their products. For example:
Hydrogen fuel network stations
2) Carefully consider any proposals that are put forward. For example:
The article headed “This Renewable ‘Instant Coal’ Could Be The Fuel of The Future” in proposes a method of operating a coal fueled power station in an eco-friendly way. I’m not saying that this is a good option, just that it is a possibility. Personally I believe that this may be a stopgap solution until other eco-friendly options are brought into operation mainly since I doubt that the earth can grow enough vegetative matter to feed the population as well as feed power stations. And further, it would take a number of years to get the vegetative supply chain big enough to achieve the desired result even for a few power stations. Surely, we are better off spending that time, effort and resources on other better long term eco-friendly power generators.
3) Take on a much more global view of what man is doing. the following link is to a lengthy article but which is well worth a read. From this many and varied activities can be performed by the individual which collectively will save us from this disaster.
The Gift of Death – George Monbiot
On a personal note on this subject. My wife and I traveled for a few years on 2 motorcycles taking in quite a number of countries. On these 2 bikes we had all that was needed to live a comfortable (mostly) life with all the trappings that we needed. In hind-site we were practicing the philosophy that his article encompasses without hardship.
