Climate change
Global temperature records show that the Earth has warmed by about 0.75C in the last century, which might not sound dramatic; but if temperatures continue to rise at this rate, the effects on our environment could be disastrous. In the last 40 years alone, the average temperature of the Earth increased quite significantly.

How we can fight climate change
Using less energy will help fight climate change and save money as well. Our common task then is to lessen the use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas to make the energy we need, thereby, mitigating climate change.

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy does not simply cover the use of solar panels and wind turbines. It means energy from any source that is naturally replenished after its use. Often called 'renewables','green energy','sustainable energy' or 'microgeneration', the main sources of renewable
energy for the home are:

.Sunlight energy
.Plants grown for fuel (biomass or biofuels
.Heat from the earth, the air or water sources
.The movement of water (known as hydro) and wind.

Various technologies are available for use to generate electricity or heat.
