Climate Change Solutions
Climate change is a complex challenge, that presents an opportunity to take a multidisciplinary solution orientated approach to reversing the impacts. The solutions can be categorised into 3 main elements that we need to implement on a global scale to completely reverse the impacts of climate change. Each one of these solutions are simple in theory, however have many complexities. This means that not everyone needs to become a climate or environmental scientist to mitigate and adapt to the impacts now and into the future. There is a solution for every industry as we are all part of the problem and contribute to this issue in some way, so therefore we can all be part of the solution.
- Renewable Energy - Transform our entire energy industry away from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas into renewable sources that include wind, solar, electric cars and other renewable methods.
- Carbon Farming - Drawdown all the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and safely store it in our oceans, forests and soils.
- Education – In order to transform the way we think, act and do to create lasting change effective education and training programs need to be integrated into our systems. This includes in schools, universities and all industry.
Climate change will impact us all on an economic, social and environmental level and since we are all part of this problem, we can all be part of the solution in some way. It will awaken the creativity and innovation that lives in all of us to help solve this challenge, we just have to learn to see it as an opportunity rather than a problem.
