What’s up with carbon emissions?
Carbon dioxide emissions are usually associated with and caused by the burning of fossil fuels like oil, coal, and gas. Globally this year, carbon emissions hit 415 parts per million. This rate of carbon emissions would mean that the atmospheric carbon will be catastrophic in less than 15 years. The entire world is now already experiencing the effects of such, including the Philippines. We are now finally understanding that the effects include hotter temperatures, rising sea levels, and more devastating typhoons and natural disasters.
What can we do?
“Given our environmental predicament, I think it’s crucial for the Philippines to start investing aggressively in climate adaptation and to adjust responsibly to changes caused by climate change and global warming,” said Jade De Guzman, Vice President of Solaric Corp.
Adaptation or mitigation?
According to Wikipedia, the top five nations with the highest carbon dioxide emissions in the year 2017 were China, the United States, India, Russia, and Japan. They will need to make that big switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy. It is clear that adaptation comes hand in hand with mitigation because we need to reduce the carbon footprint of the planet.
Unfortunately, despite global efforts and even the Paris Agreement, fossil fuels still account for more than 2/3 of the world’s energy requirements. Even worse, carbon emission continues to increase because of increased fossil fuel consumption. Despite these facts and globally available updates, coal plant capacity is set to expand in various parts of the world, including the Philippines, which wants to double coal plant capacity.
“It is in the interest of our country to put her foot down and start implementing real action steps towards a clean, safe, and sustainable future. The good news is that solar is now widely available in the mainstream. The cost is competitive and within the same range of the cost of fossil fuel sources,” added De Guzman.
