Raising animals for meat produces as much GHGs per year as exhaust emissions from all the vehicles in the world. So why is it that we talk about switching gas for electricity in our cars but not about switching beef for beans in our plates? Thankfully there are companies out there trying to fix this.

As humans, our actions and habits which eventually dictate our lifestyle is the reason for global warming. This video proves that. Only if we paid more attention to how we live our lives, how we use and harness energy in relation to the environment. The sun is not the cause and eruption of volcanoes aren't either. Our lifestyle (human related factors) is the reason.

WAKE UP WORLD! I'm sitting here in the Ferry Building and this is my view. The smog coming off the Bay Bridge in the background. You can see how it rises up from the morning traffic and floats down with the wind to the left. As a global civilization, we pump around 40 Billion tons of C02 in the air each year. BILLION TONS (if you aren't 33 years old, you haven't even had 1 billion seconds in your life. So imagine, if you had 1 second of life for every TON of c02 we emit each year, you would be 1,320 years old). People are under the delusion that slowly filling up the atmosphere with all this carbon dioxide won't affect us. That's like turning on the garden hose in an empty pool and acting like it won't ever reach the top. We need to lead by example and keep our home planet habitable for generations to come. Fuck the fossil fuel industry! Stop letting the billionaires control us! Their employees will find other jobs. Think LONG TERM. Love your home. Happy Valentine's Day

A pilot project to turn 10 homes in Nottingham into net-zero emission properties without residents even moving out is nearing completion. Developer Melius Homes and social landlord Nottingham City Homes have worked together on the scheme, with UK solar manufacturer Viridian Solar providing photovoltaic roofing. The upgrades also include better insulated outside walls and upgraded heating systems. After the refurbishment, tenants will pay an energy services fee instead of paying for gas and electricity. With this guaranteed additional income, to which savings on planned maintenance costs are added, the landlord can borrow enough money to fund the upfront costs. The goal is to drive better economies of scale so the work can be completed at an attractive price requiring no government support. Stuart Elmes, CEO of Viridian Solar, said: “The opportunity it offers to completely regenerate whole areas of our towns and cities, increasing the value of property and improving the comfort of tenants, all financed by energy savings is amazing.” The 10 homes in Nottingham are a pilot study, with an option to extend the programme to 400 more. Thanks @bearexuma for the share! 🙏🍃

The first effort to spatially quantify global soil carbon loss revealed that agriculture has led to the loss of 133 billion tons of carbon, with the rate of that loss increasing dramatically in the past 200 years. That’s about equal to the amount of carbon we have lost to the atmosphere from forest clearing. This study was led by WHRC scientist Dr. Jonathan Sanderman and his colleague Tom Hengl @uniwageningen, with WHRC’s @greg.fiske joining as a co-author. The spread of agriculture has created a large carbon debt in soils, which the world can use as an effective climate mitigation strategy if that debt is ‘repaid’ even partly by re-sequestering that carbon in the ground. // Photo © @chrislinderphoto // #soils #soilcarbon #whatliesbeneath #agriculture #amazon #forest #deforestation #reforestation #car#carbonsequestration #naturalclimatesolution #climatescience #climatechange #modeling #thefilesareinthecomputer #carbon #carbonemissions #earth #holocene #anthropocene #HYDE #bigdata #machinelearning #ScienceForTheWorld

Ice caps are melting and it's a huge problem. Ice plays a crucial part in reflecting the sun's rays back in to space - without it, our planet would become too hot to live comfortably across the globe. However, as we pump CO2 and other greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, we start heating the planet ourselves which causes the ice to melt which causes the planet to heat up further and before you know it - we're in a catch 22 with an overheated world. Ice is also a crucial habitat for Polar Bears and it is rapidly decreasing. It provides vital hunting grounds for them and places to shelter, rest and give birth to their cubs. We can help reduce the destruction we're causing to this habitat by reducing carbon emissions in every day life. You can try to walk or cycle to work, car share or use public transport (saving money on fuel). Turn your TV off at the wall, lights off when you leave a room and taps off while brushing your teeth etc. (reducing your electricity and water bills). This is one of the most immediate threats to our society and it needs to be treated as such. ~please share to help spread the word~

New York, 2015 ————————————- “In 2015, airlines spewed 781 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere, representing about 2% of man-made CO2 emissions. If global aviation was a country, its CO2 emissions would be ranked 7th in the world, between Germany and South Korea.” ———————————— And emissions from air travel are growing at around 2-3% each year... How can I still travel and reduce my footprint? #firstworldproblems #seriously #itreallyisthough It’s my biggest luxury and it’s something that brings me a lot of joy. And I don’t have any EASY answers. I could stop travelling and this would be the most simple answer. Ultimately, I’m conflicted and incredibly flawed.

“Only when the last tree is cut down, the last fish caught, the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @standfortrees say that trees deserve more credit for all the amazing things they do for us - and I agree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're breathing right now (and I really hope you are!) then you've got a tree to thank. Our precious forests are the lungs of the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When forests are destroyed 2 things happen: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. We lose trees that produce vital oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. The carbon stored in the trees is released into the atmosphere, where it mixes with oxygen and turns back into carbon dioxide ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ this increases the 'greenhouse effect' and accelerates global warming. Plus communities and habitats are destroyed when forests are cut down, which can have disastrous impacts on the people and animals who call these amazing spaces home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we lose a forest we all become poorer. That's why #EthicalHour Stand For Trees.

Wednesday is composting day. Not for our building, but that’s not going to stop us. • Although we don’t waste food and enjoy our leftovers to the last bit, we have food scraps from preparing veg and fruit, as well as coffee grounds and tea leaves. • We put the scraps in biobased poo bags and keep them in the fridge, then take them to a nearby composting green bin on Wednesday mornings. • Food scraps’ gases can be turned into biofuels, and can also be used as soil conditioners and fertilisers, closing the loop helping with growing more food. • Every little bit helps in harnessing energy in all its form and encouraging the production of clean energy to step away from from fossil fuels. #composting

This is the Arctic tundra. The blackened area in the bottom left is a burn scar from a tundra wildfire, which are becoming more common as the planet warms. A rapidly warming Arctic is a major global concern because it could release massive amounts of carbon from thawing permafrost. The release of more carbon into the atmosphere causes more warming, and in turn more permafrost thaw, in a self-accelerating cycle. In addition to the carbon problem, a new study this month said that Arctic permafrost contains 32 million gallons of mercury - twice as much as the rest of the world’s soil, atmosphere, and ocean combined. WHRC scientist Dr. Sue Natali, who was not involved in the study, gets right to the point: “The best option for managing these permafrost-related risks is to keep the permafrost — and the carbon and mercury contained in permafrost — frozen, through immediate reduction of fossil fuel emissions.” Read more in the @washingtonpost article at the link in bio. // Photo © @chrislinderphoto // #Sci#ScienceForTheWorld #Arctic #tundra #wetland #ecosystem #mer#mercury #carbon #carbonemissions #arcticmercury #isagoodbandname #butthatsit #climatechange #climatescience #permafrost #mercury #planetaryboundary #keepitfrozen #keepitintheground #fieldwork #burnscar #wildfire #ScienceForTheWorld

From reducing your car mileage to cutting down on meat, here are 8 ways to reduce your carbon footprint this year. Start 2018 the green way and keep your CO2 emissions at bay! . 1. Air travel is by far the biggest contributor to the carbon footprint. I think it is safe to say that many of us struggle with this one, especially those of us who’s family is spread all over the globe. According to The Guardian, a single return flight from London to New York contributes to almost a quarter of the average person’s annual emissions. Whenever possible, try to hop on a train instead of taking a flight, it may take slightly longer to get there but you will be making a difference to your carbon foot-print. . 2. The second largest lifestyle change one can make is to eat less meat, especially red meats such as beef and lamb. The meat industry, with all its carbon emissions during the production process as well as the land and water needed to sustain the industry, is a significant contributor to global warming. By cutting down on the amount of red meat that you eat not only will you be contributing to a greener future, but you will also have a healthier diet. For those of you who are moving towards a vegan diet, living on a plant based diet can make as much as a 20% difference to your overall carbon emissions. . 3. Home heating is perhaps the third largest contributor. Poorly insulated houses require a large amount of energy to keep warm. The best thing you can do is find ways to insulate your house properly and only turn on the heating system when it is absolutely necessary. The Carbon Fund has stated that by reducing your heating system down 1 degree centigrade, you can reduce your energy consumption by 8%! . Head over to the blog to find out 5 more ways to reduce your emissions (link in bio) 💙 . . . . . #carbonfootprint #carbonemissions #reducewaste #recycle #theartofslowliving #verilymoment #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #pla#plasticfree #lessmeat #naturelovers #naturepic #ecofashion #slowdown #slowliving #consumeless #consumelocal #plasticfree #oceanviews

Aerobic decomposition, which occurs where there is plenty of oxygen during composting-such as in a well designed home compost bin that allows for its contents to be regularly turned and aerated-quickly and efficiently turns organic waste into humus without producing any methane. The main by-product of aerobic composting is fresh, healthy, rich compost. Small amounts of water and carbon dioxide are also produced with this method. When you add the compost to your garden it continues working to help the environment by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere and locking it away in the soil. The storage process is actually a form of carbon sequestration, which is at the heart of some carbon emissions trading schemes./#carbonemissions/#composting/#aerobic/#environment/#greenhousegases/#kitchenscraps/#planet/#recycle
