It is a little known fact that one of the major contributors of carbon emissions into the atmosphere is deforestation. If we could stop deforestation today, we would effectively eliminate the number two man made cause of carbon emissions. The United Nations declared that deforestation accounts for around 25 percent of all emissions of carbon dioxide as a result of human activity. This is roughly the same amount of carbon discharged by the United States each year, the world’s largest polluter.
Over 30 billion tonnes of carbon in the form of CO2 is predicted will be released into the atmosphere this year. It is estimated that this will continue to increase to a staggering 33.1 billion tonnes by 2015. [click to continue…]
Can a Poster On “Save Environment” really make a difference?
Saving the environment is a big issue with me here at Our-Environment.com, so I take it pretty seriously.
Spreading the word about what we can do to help “Save the Environment” is vital.
There is no longer any question about the effects human activity is having on our environment. Moving toward a more sustainable future should be part of our everyday life.
Like with most things, people want to do the right thing, though it can be hard to know exactly what the right thing really is?
Because we have all grown up in an environment of relatively cheap and plentiful energy, it is sometimes difficult for someone who is not “into it”, saving the environment I mean, to know where to start.
Our job (people like you who find there way here), is to help raise environmental awareness.
You are likely doing this already with what you talk about with friends, how you vote, by what you buy, and what you choose not to buy.
