Earth does not belong to just particular individual. It has been present since millions and billions of years and has undergone radical changes. These changes have occurred in terms of climate and evolution of species over a lot of time. Global Warming is one aspect of how nature and climate has changed over time.

Desperate Times – Desperate Measures

Desperate Times – Desperate Measures

Evolution of mankind is a natural process. The catalyst in this process is the constantly changing climate. Due to climate change a lot things have simple reshaped and reconstructed themselves. However, a very major and serious threat waits. Global Warming is an issue that must be addressed promptly and contributions must be made to save the planet. Global Warming must be fought back to survive.

Responsibility Of Mankind – Global Warming

As the prime and most intelligent specie on the planet, it is the responsibility of mankind to prevent Global Warming. The Global Warming is an issue of intense debate and a lot of controversy. Clear signs of the Global Warming appeared back in 20th century after mass industrial revolution worldwide and weather changes.

Effects Of Global Warming On People

Many individuals have personally witnessed the Global Warming changes. Global Warming is primarily the increase in temperature. The temperature increase is quite drastic and bizarre. Global Warming is said to have increased the Earth’s temperature which may have several negative effects on the environment.

Famous Events – Global Warming Is The Cause

Some of the most renowned events occurred due to Global Warming is the breaking of ice glaciers. Ice glaciers are large masses of ice and snow accumulated together. In 2005, experts noticed the Ayles Ice Shelf breakup. This breaking was visible through satellite images. The glacier was as long as 41 miles and one of the largest.

Breaking Of Ice Shelf’s

Similarly, other Ice Shelf’s have completely broken down. Much more has occurred on the North Pole where snow caps are constantly melting. Read the full story

We Share This Earth – A Provoking Thought

Climate change over the past decade has been one of the most serious issues for people. Global Warming has ignited several causes to save planet Earth. Earth is the home to several species of Plants, Animals, Insects, Birds, Marine life and Human Beings.

Why I Cant Be A Skeptic

Why I Cant Be A Skeptic

We come across the 4 seasons and experience the delights of Mother Nature such as rainfall and snowfall. We live here and it is our responsibility to work towards the betterment of this society. Scientists over a course of decades have come to the conclusion that if we do not take preventative measures to bring a change, the consequences may be dire. Here are the top 10 reasons why climate change cannot be denied by anybody.

Rise to 6 Degree Celsius – Proven Theory

The temperature of Earth may rise to over 1, 2, 3 or 4 degree centigrade over the next 50 years. What will happen if this occurs? Scientists have agreed mutually that if the Earth’s temperature rises by over 1 degree, the melting of Glaciers will continue. Many of the animals like Seal’s, Panda’s and Polar Bears may face extinction. The risk of flooding will greatly increase in the eastern horizons. Agricultural problems will surface. Many species of animals and birds will lose their habitats as well.

We Already See the Signs

Wars will be fought over the right to food and drinking water. Forest fires will become common and many of the worlds most scenic and dense vegetations like Amazon forest will become a victim of deforestation. People will resort to violence and the Earth as we know today may not ever be able to return to its normal climate.

4 Degree Rise is Proved

At 3.5 degrees rise, Earth will experience rash and unpredictable weather conditions. Tornadoes, Sea Storms, Hurricanes and flooding will be common. The snow accumulated over the European Alps, Indies, Asian Mountain Ranges and the North and South Pole will completely be melted. Antarctica will no longer exist. The world will fall in panic. 4 degree centigrade rise is much the same as 3.5 or 3 degrees. Low lying African countries like Egypt will be lost completely to the sea with Bangladesh. New deserts will appear all over the world in places like Spain.

Skeptic May Lose Life

These are some of the effects of a 4 degree temperature rise. Imagine what will happen if it crosses the checkpoint of 5 and 6 degrees? A major chunk of Earth will be uninhabitable for Earthlings. People will resort to Northern Europe as refugee’s. The resources to accommodate these people will slowly vanquish. Methane Gas will rise from the Ocean bed and add to the Greenhouse gases.

Things Need To Be Worked Out

Things Need To Be Worked Out

Weather change is one of the most deadly of issues these days. The reason why I do not doubt the authenticity of this cause is because I experience the effects of climate change myself. As an individual, one cannot neglect the effects of climate change. Read the full story

Getting Residential Solar System in Wyoming

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Vast solar farms can be built in WI as it is mostly undeveloped. Having large solar farms will make it a potential candidate for supplying power to neighboring states as well as their own.

Solar Power Vs. Wind Turbine

Solar Power Vs. Wind Turbine

Wyoming is famous for the production of wind power. It is one of the windiest states. But solar power is just as practical and necessary as a wind turbine. Wind turbines only work about ½ of the time, and solar panels work the remaining ½ of that time making them a suitable combination for producing ample electricity. Once installation is complete then the areas far away from power lines can be connected to the grid by smaller solar. You have to bear no utility costs for that.

Free Solar Evaluation

Fill the Wyoming free solar evaluation form and you will find out all the factors that can affect the feasibility of converting to solar power. Power consumption in any home or business depend on these factors such as location, building materials, square footage, number of windows and type of roof. By completing the questionnaire correctly on the Wyoming solar power website, you will be called by one of the Wyoming solar experts. He will advise you about solar evaluation on free of cost basis and also provide you with the latest details about the discounts and tax credits.


Make a choice of the solar power Solution(s) for your vicinity. Tick all those options that apply:

  • Solar Pool Heater
  • Solar Water Heater
  • Solar Electricity

Accurate Data

If you give the more correct details, you will be able to get the more exact evaluation. This is particularly right in relation to the sum of your electricity bill on monthly basis. If the information is gathered with the name of your electricity company supplier who prices can be taken through some other sources, then you will be able to get more accurate consumption of your current usage of electricity on monthly basis.

Basics of Sun Run Lease in LA and Arizona

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sun Run has introduced a solar lease program available in Los Angeles (LADWP) utility and Arizona, though the Sun Run is basically known for Solar PPAs.

Solar Lease

Resedential Solar Lease

This lease is basically a relief for people who usually refrain from the lease because of the high upfront cost of the solar program. The upfront cost for the solar lease is typically $500 but this upfront cost could be less or zip in some utilities of Arizona. This solar lease agreement is for a period of 18 years and in case the house owner moves out of the house the Sun Run lease shall offer you three options firstly, the lease can be transferred in the name of the new homeowner, secondly, you can buy out the remaining agreement and thirdly the system can be bought at a predetermined cost.

Qualifying For the Lease

In order to qualify for the lease, a good to excellent credit is required and an ability to pay is also determined. However, the Sun Run says that other than the FICO Score it takes more things into their consideration for qualifying for the lease as well. The Lease agreement does not place any kind of lien on the home, or dip into the home equity.

Maintenance Forms a Part of the Lease Payments

The lease payments includes the maintenance of the equipment as well, the good news is that it also includes the inverter, which usually starts creating troubles between twelve to fifteen years of its installation.

The First Year Lease Program Payment

The first year of the lease program payment, which combines the solar lease and utility bill, is calculated by the Sun Ray Lease to be equal to what is being already paid by the home owner.

All the solar thermal plants in USA are not pollution-free. It is because they use different kinds of fuels as well. They are the result of several kinds of pollution and harmful effects to the environment and the atmosphere.

Solar thermal plants

They are so called the green-energy alternatives. They make use of the energy coming from the sun and are expected to be pollution-free. They are thought to be a great contribution in the present time of energy crisis.

Solar energy

But unfortunately, they don’t solely use the sun energy but a number of other chemicals are used in their working. This is making them cause pollution of several types. They also result in green house effect and thus in global warming.

Some of the solar thermal plants are designed that use natural gas or propane boilers other than the sun energy. This is used as a fuel to start up the units. It results in the production of the gases that cause the green house effect.

Global Warming’s Global Effects

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Global warming needs no introduction in today’s world. Therefore avoiding the intricacies of global warming I would like to write this article in the hope of sharing some insight into what could actually happen or what is exactly happening to our planet Earth because of global warming. This term has caused global affects on agriculture, weather, which has further caused a tremendous shift in the economy of countries. Let me explain in a brief manner global warming’s global effects.

Rising Sea Levels

Regarding sea level rising, there is a misconception that I need to clarify. It is not because of the melting of the Polar zone that causes rising sea levels, it is the thermal expansion that causes the sea to have a rising level. The meltdown at the Polar zones join the oceans, but they hardly make up for rising levels.


Currently though, it is predicted that within the next 100 years, if the same amount of global warming occurs, it is probable that islands may be eliminated completely. Not only that but areas near the sea may loose million of acres of land. It is surely a problem to be worried about, as already recently an island in Maldives has been eaten up by the rising sea level.

Diminishing Sweet Water

One major problem to consider is that of salt water mixture with sweet water. You must be thinking how this is possible?

Understanding Climate and Weather

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

We all remember learning terms such as “climate” and “weather” back in our primary school days, but not all of us stay in touch with these (until commonly used) to be able to differentiate them. Let us take a look at what the weather of the earth is and what the climate is.

Climate of the Earth

climate of the Earth

The climate of the earth can be defined in different ways. It all depends on the speculations of the people. However, climate can be defined as the weather averaged for a long period of time. We can judge the climate, considering a number of years, by the rainfall and the changes in it’s amount, the pressure of the wind and the fluctuation of the temperature. Every place has a different climate. It depends on the location of the place, the sea level and the height from the sea level. Read the full story

Severe Effects Of Global Warming To Come

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

According to the researchers of Purdue University and the University of New South Wales, Australia, we could face some severe effects of global warming quite soon. Although we have already seen a wide range of different natural disasters that all link back to the changing climatic condition, the researchers claim that if the green house emissions continue at the same rate, planet Earth would soon be inhabitable by humans and mammals.

Keeping in view the fact that if the temperature of the earth keeps rising considerably due to global warming, it will have extremely harmful consequences for living beings. The present pace of global warming is considered to be the maximum tolerable temperature for the survival of living beings that can be surpassed.

Step Up To Stop Climate Change

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

We already know about the increasing hazards of climate change, but instead of accepting the disasters as nature’s revenge and continuing to burn fossil fuels into CO2, it is extremely important that we take appropriate steps to control the problems.

Global Warming

The rate of success will rely on our efforts and whether we are able to control the issue through scientific research, new public policies, and better personal choices that are environment friendly.

Here are some of the things that we can do to help towards the conservation of energy and environment and thus alter the increasing rate of climate change.

1. Walk instead of Drive

Try to walk or ride a bike for transportation. This way, you won’t just cut back on your fuel bills and generate less CO2, you’ll burn off that extra fat that, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, depression, colon cancer, and osteoporosis.

Effects Of Global Warming On Humans

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Global warming is not only hazardous for animals and environment, it can have some serious effects on human health as well. Being exposed to the hot weather directly can majorly affect one’s health. In the 1980s and ’90s, heat stroke was responsible for killing almost 200 Americans a year, but the average number is now about 700 a year.

Global Warming

Bad news is that as the earth warms up, heat related illnesses and deaths will increase greatly as well. In addition to the hot weather, climate change includes several other changes as well including an increase in the number of typhoons, floods, and wildfires, causing some major injuries, deaths, psychological traumas, and damages to the human lives.
