Climate Change and Human Responsibility

Climate Change and Human Responsibility | green infographics | Scoop.it
It can’t be denied any longer: Sea levels are rising, major droughts are continuing, and record hot summers are being experienced all around the world. Climate change is real and, as residents of Earth, we have a responsibility to our planet to do something about it. A recent study conducted by Yale University and George Mason University finds that, for the first time since the research began in 2008, the majority of Americans believe that global warming is mostly a man-made phenomenon.

As sobering images of catastrophes are making headlines, this graphic looks at how people are recognizing that the effects of their actions aren’t just an increasing danger to the world but are a direct threat to the future for themselves and their families.

In the last decade alone, the worldwide demand for the manufacture of goods has risen, resulting in increased levels of C02 emissions in the world's atmosphere. In 2010, 33,000 tons of C02 released into the atmosphere as a result of manufacturing.

Infographic: Acting Green vs Buying Green

Infographic: Acting Green vs Buying Green | green infographics | Scoop.it

Green products enable us to live healthier, more efficient lifestyles – but even if you’ve upgraded every light bulb and appliance in your house to the most environmentally-friendly model, you can still eek out even more efficiency by adopting greener habits.

For example, you use the same amount of water with a low-flow shower head in a 15 minute shower, as a 9 minute shower with a regular shower head. If you also limited the amount of your shower in combination with a low-flow fixture, you are saving a ton! Check out eLocal‘s infographic on Acting Green vs. Buying Green after the break for more ways to lower your carbon footprint by living a greener lifestyle...

New York City’s appetite for energy is immense, making it a revealing case study for how people use — and waste — energy.

“Midtown Manhattan has more energy use than the whole country of Kenya, and New York state uses more energy than all of sub-Saharan Africa,” said Vijay Modi, a professor of mechanical engineering at Columbia University. “There is just this intense use of energy in cities like New York.”

A new project by Modi and graduate student Bianca Howard aims to put the city’s energy consumption on the map. The results of their work are displayed on an interactive map estimating the total annual energy consumption for nearly every building across the five boroughs.

Their research allows New Yorkers to get a rough idea of how much energy is used inside their homes, offices and businesses — and it offers a peek into the building next door, down the street and across the city. The goal of the project is to take some of the mystery out of energy usage..
