Climate Change Invites Renewable Energy by City-Tech Blogger Aayush Madaan

In today’s world, we have a lot of technology at our disposal, however, some of these technologies are a lot more helpful than others. It may be great to be able to play games on our phones in the middle of the night, but technology such as wind, solar, and hydropower plants can help hundreds of thousands of people by providing clean energy that doesn’t negatively affect the environment. Products like electric cars, LED lights, and green buildings are a clean way to use energy. Countries like India that have a stronger chance of droughts and less rainfall, the best options would be wind and solar energy. Of course, the impact of renewable energy may not be apparent, but its effects on mitigating climate change are effective. The sooner these countries start to use renewable resources the less likely they will develop problems like China. Problems can range from droughts, heat waves, floods, and storms which can lead to other economic, political, and social issues. It may seem very broad, but the reality is that the effects of climate change can affect everyone in various ways.

  1. Although technology is slowly growing and shifting towards “green” ideas and products, it is proving difficult to quickly switch from our main sources of fuel to better alternatives. Even though the variety of products such as electric cars are slowly making their way into the market, they are not as popular due to inconveniences such as waiting for cars to charge, the limitation on miles versus the wait time, etc. in comparison to current vehicles running on gas. In order for society to more readily convert to green technology, continued research and advances must be done so that people are not only interested in the products but will have either the same or better experience in using them. Unfortunately, the issue of climate change and its negative impact on our Earth is not enough at time to convince people to switch their current appliances and conveniences for earth-friendly ones. By the time people realize how much of an impact their every day use of plastics, fuel consumption, etc. has on the Earth, it may be too late. We need to push for advancements in green technology so that we can make it a reality.
