2020 De-Carb Resolution
As a carbon-based being how best may I manage my own carbon emissions? As I explore my retirement current future weather models deeply haunt me. All you have to do is Google "climate-change studies" to see why this
warrants grave concerns.
What is even more shocking than the science, is the number of many Americans who deny it. Simply we today cannot discern fact from fiction. Past scientific predictions are increasing in there accuracy as weather forcasting improves.
Developing protective measures you think would be a sane option. However, American's neglect to address lessening climate impacts is crazy.
We all may profit from pollution prevention through ingenious investments. One recent study cites:
$300 billion. That’s the money needed to stop the rise in greenhouse gases and buy up to 20 years of time to fix global warming, according to United Nations climate scientists. It’s the gross domestic product of Chile, or the world’s military spending every 60 days.(https://news.google.com/s/CBIw7Mqk8EI?r=12&oc=em). In another recent report, the 34-member group, led by former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and World Bank Chief Executive Officer Kristalina Georgieva, concluded that $1.8 trillion in investment by 2030 concentrated in five categories—weather warning systems, infrastructure, dry-land farming, mangrove protection and water management—would yield $7.1 trillion in benefits. Chief among them is are avoiding the costs of climate catastrophe. Stimulating investments into de-carbonization vanguards our future welfare. This is why corporate and the international community is quickly embracing such actuarial measures. Otherwise we face a perilous consequences ignoring planetary warming.
Without a green awakening our future is in jeopardy. Let's decarbonise with a win-win option – rethink our lifestyle, using more with less securing an global life insurance plan. Greater prosperity has a price if we now reduce the horrific cost of our carbon impacts. Otherwise the consequences will ruin our fragile home and planet.
