A Green Lifestyle to Bequeath Our Children a Healthy Future

We inhabit a world where toxins are adversely affecting everything in nature, and we're seeing terrible effects like acid rain and global warming. It would be marvelous if we could continue to exist on this great planet without destroying it in the process. For city-dwellers it might seem like a tantalising mirage to think of inhaling cool, clean air into their lungs, with no harmful poisons or toxins. The thing is, this is no longer possible; we humans have ensured that with the pollution we've created we'll be breathing in airborne poisons, which can impair our habitat and ultimately our health.

Our enormous oceans, which make up most of the earth's surface, are being poisoned by pollutants, mainly toxins and oil, which have a devastating impact on the life found in the ocean and as a result of that it affects us. Generations of fishermen used to provide many people with an income, but pollution is quickly putting paid to those livelihoods. Towns have depended on fishing for such a long time, for both food and economic prospects, and now all of this is coming to an end for many. Still fresh in our memories is the Deepwater Horizon oil leak, which gave abundant testimony to the disastrous effect of oil spills, causing the loss of many jobs and costing billions of dollars. So much wildlife died in that episode, not simply fish but birds as well, influencing the whole eco system which can cause no end of problems in the food chain. All brought about by humans and their thirst for oil, with virtually no thought, except in hindsight, for Mother Earth and her many other children.

As the world's known oil reserves creep toward exhaustion, billions are pumped into exploration for new fields, money which could be used to broaden and develop green energy production. Present green energy solutions, which do no damage to the environment, are capable of providing a lot of our energy needs. Take solar panels by way of example, they will work efficiently in sun-drenched locations and they can produce electricity as well as heat up water. And something that's every bit as simple in concept, wind turbines, makes use of another free resource (wind) to make energy. So long as the wind blows - and some turbines work effectively at low wind speeds - a wind turbine will work, which is a neat advantage. Oil is destroying our planet and it will at some point run out, so it's crucial to invest in green energy production now more than ever. If we did that, global warming as well as the other ruinous effects of pollution could actually be stopped, and just possibly reversed.

The primary beneficiaries will be ourselves, and of course our descendants in the longer term. We desire for our children to grow up surrounded by all the splendor the planet is endowed with, happy and without fear of violent, distressing weather events and food shortages. Beginning to live green, and looking after the environment, is the only way we can ensure this.

It will be worth all the money, time and substantial effort required, if we can stop the relentless march of the harm we are doing to our planet.

Start off getting the favorable future of all your family by using economy method of obtaining energy, a gas safe register source produced through the power from the sun's rays through solar panels.
