PostSubject: Towards a greener planet.   Tue May 24, 2011 2:05 am

It seems that nearly every day we hear something about Global Warming. Australia's drought is now the worst in our history. Intense storms lashing parts of South East Queensland, frequent tropical storms worldwide, fierce bushfires, melting glaziers, flooding, the list goes on. With the ever increasing threat of global warming, we need to know how we can look after the planet. Electricity causes 35 per cent of Australia's greenhouse pollution which makes it the biggest single source of Australia's greenhouse pollution.

Climate change is caused by human activity; it is the warming of our planet. It's the worst environmental and economic problem we face today. Coal provides nearly 90 per cent of Australia's electricity and is also destroying the environment. Using coal also causes significant health problems. We must stop our use of coal powered electricity. Clean, renewable energy is the solution to climate change and to a better planet. Using a solar hot water qld system can somewhat provide a solution to your electricity needs.

Most of the energy in Australia is supplied by burning coal or petrol. Currently, 78 per cent of Australia's water is boiled by coal. Coal, is a fossil fuel and creates greenhouse emissions. A solar hot water qld system is an ideal way to make use of the sun’s energy is a way to boil water without producing greenhouse emissions.

Our greenhouse gas pollution comes from burning coal and gas to make energy. Deforestation also releases large amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. After that, changes in our climate may become rapid, unpredictable and irreversible.

While I DO believe that greenhouse gas pollution is a real concern, I do NOT believe that it has anything to do with global warming. Many studies dating back into the 1960's show that the earth goes thru normal heating and cooling cycles of 1-3 degree. In fact, one of the original studys commisioned by the US gov showed this to be true. When you read these studies you first need to find out who is paying for the study!
