A major point I feel is critical to mine and all energy production companies, now involves the effects of the rising Earth temperature due to the emissions of pollutants. Climate Change is an existential threat. It is rolling ahead out of control. Most are just beginning to realize what it actually is.
I know it is hard to confront. I know many do not agree. But, global warming, climate change, whichever label one uses to describe this existential crisis, very much needs to be confronted. Because there is no option but to pursue solutions to revert it, and now’s the time for causation on this situation.
Why? Because it is capable of destroying all life!
In 2100, my 2 year old grandson, Boston, will be 81, if he makes it through the effects of an un-reverted rising planet temperature! These effects are easy to predict, because they are happening now, they are observable. And coming down the road as the Earth’s temperature continues to rise, there will be increasing magnitudes of the fires, floods, hurricanes, diminishing ice caps, receding land masses with rising seas, drought…these extreme environmental conditions result in massive population relocation, loss of property, disease, famine, conflict, suffering, loss of life. Magnitudes of changes in life as we know it! That is very hard to confront. Most just bounce off it. Or deny it. It is natural disaster. Seemingly beyond the control of the individual. But this is not true. There are solutions if employed soon enough.
Solar power, the energy source without CO2 emissions pumped into the atmosphere, is a huge part of the solution. Other technologies must be developed, like clean coal, but right now we can do something about it. Build solar power plants. In magnitudes, with storage, and outlaw the burning of CO2 emitting fuels to create power.
I know I can at least do my part….my mission…Energy Systems’ mission, and hopefully, my gift to Boston, and all children alive today. I am building solar power plants. I am looking for people who can and want to align with that purpose.
Thank you for your help and support.
