Visions: I envision a world where we are in a carbon-neutral world. Global net greenhouse gas emissions fall to zero, and society relies primarily on electricity from clean energy sources such as solar and wind for production. The development of electricity technology has been rapid, and as more affordable energy sources, solar and wind farms have greatly increased their power generation and have completely replaced coal and natural gas-fired power plants.
Values: Vehicles that rely on oil, coal, and natural gas to generate power have been eliminated from the market because we have developed engines that use hydrogen as fuel. I think hydrogen is a new type of clean energy that is both efficient and environmentally friendly. Scientists can separate it from water through electrolysis for us to use in large quantities because hydrogen can be reduced to water vapor after combustion without polluting the environment. I think future emissions scenarios for weather in around 2050 would see the world warm by an average of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, due to the continuous emissions of human-produced carbon dioxide in the past.
Interventions: With the continuous improvement of a sustainable future, I will definitely support the activity that helps governments and technology companies increase carbon taxes and develop sustainable energy sources (the development of hydrogen energy, the use of biomass to directly convert the sun into hydrogen, the use of ocean waves to generate electricity, the development of waste gas to develop energy markets) enabling us to create energy more efficiently and reduce carbon in the environment to avoid the severe consequences of climate change, which is the foundation of a carbon neutral world.
This is a brilliant idea, and I fully believe that the development of new energy is a redemption for the waste and overconsumption of resources! In fact, many companies and enterprises have been developing and producing new energy sources, and scientists are constantly trying to find new resources that can replace old and non-renewable resources. The most important thing is sustainability and avoiding waste. At the same time, the protection of ecological environment and climate is also a very important factor.
Hi Qihan, your ideas are well thought out and presented. While these ideas are wonderful in theory, I think the next step would be considering how best to implement them in the current state of our world. Even the implementation of long term environmentally friendlier practices, can have short term costs and may not be feasible globally. I share your vision for a world that lowers its carbon emissions to bring it back to any semblance of homeostasis.
It is true that as the environment worsens, people start to pay attention to protecting the environment and formulate measures to achieve the goal of sustainable development of our planet. But these may not be enough to offset our damage to the planet. We need to do more to protect the environment.
