Progress has been slow to adopt green energy around the world. While it feels like we’re finally getting there, there’s still a very long way to go.
It’s actually progress itself that has been the problem for the human race living on Planet Earth. We’ve come to understand a lot more about the world around us and what we can achieve, but at the same time turned a blind eye to many of the problems we case that could ultimately cause humanity’s extinction. For example, we’ve built factories to facilitate the mass production of goods, but those factories pollute the air and contribute towards global warming, also known as climate change.
Similarly, the advancements in medicine allow us all to live much longer. That’s at a time when birth rates are growing anyway, so longer lives and more births mean a larger growth in global population. It’s a vicious cycle, and we’re running out of time to fix things.
Yes, it seems behaviour around the world is changing, but not fast enough. We all need to take responsibility for leading more sustainable lives.
