How Going Solar Helps the Environment & Public Health
The idea of switching to green energy sources are becoming more and more popular. While there are a wide range of benefits of choosing solar over other sources of energy, going solar helps the environment and public health greatly. Here is how!
Reduce Air & Water Pollution
Solar energy has proved to significantly reduce the amount of harmful pollutants let into the air. Toxic chemicals such as Nitrous Oxide and Sulphur dioxide are restricted into the atmosphere by choosing solar energy. Most electricity producing mechanisms, unlike solar, need water in some stages, by which it is polluted with unknown materials, and is let out into a larger water resources, polluting it. It is also essential to consider that solar energy does not produce any toxic waste that needs disposing like nuclear power plants. Reduced air and water pollution directly contribute to improved health in public as they will have access to good quality air and water thus eliminating respiratory and digestive illness.
Helps Fight Climate Change
As we all know, the emissions of greenhouse gases contribute largely to climate change. The rising of greenhouse gases contributes to an increased global temperature, which leads to climate change. By switching to solar energy, there is a decrease in the greenhouse gas emissions and carbon dioxide emissions. The drastic effect of climate change has not only impacted the livelihoods of people but also that of flora and fauna.
Cuts Strain on the Usage of Fossil Fuels
Over the past few decades, we have been faced with the issue of fossil fuel depletion. While the depletion of natural resources is one major problem yet to tackle, the usage/ burning of fossil fuels also lets out harmful gases that add to the greenhouse gas effect. For example, as a result of burning fossil fuels, methane is released into the air, which is a much more harmful chemical than CO2 adding to the greenhouse gas effect. When we choose green energy such as solar energy it reduces the stain on non-renewable sources of energy such as coal, oil, and natural gas.
In Conclusion, choosing alternative forms of energy production and consumption largely reduces our reliance of natural resources and positively impacts our environment. Solar energy is a good way to start!
