What is climate change? Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing the planet – and one everyone can do something about. From recycling to offsetting emissions, and from turning the thermostat down to buying a more economical car, there are many steps you can take to help safeguard the future of the planet.
Almost all of the energy that drives the various systems (climate systems, ecosystems, hydrologic systems, etc.) found on the Earth originates from the sun . Solar energy is created at the core of the sun when hydrogen atoms are fused into helium by nuclear fusion .. The core occupies an area from the sun's center to about a quarter of the star's radius. At the core, gravity pulls all of the mass of the sun inward and creates intense pressure. This pressure is high enough to force the fusion of atomic masses.
What you can do
Burning fossil fuels to heat our homes or produce electricity releases carbon emissions, which cause climate change. The energy you use at home is likely to be your biggest contribution to climate change. 80 per cent of it goes on heating and hot water, so this is a good place to look for savings.
Bush burning & flared Gas are dangerious to the environment. These practices should be avoided.
