In recent months there has been a monumental rise in the number of call to save the planet. Four countries UK, France, Canada and Ireland have already declared climate emergencies. Many climate institutes have declared that if there is no substantial change in the carbon footprint of the world in by 2020 the situation is going to get much worse. So, what are the solutions to these humongous problems?
Protestors across the world have demanded to ban plastics, fossil fuels, polythene, deforestation and even meat industry. However, what will people use in place of these, would the alternatives viable, sustainable, affordable, accessible and more importantly how long would it take to make those available to everyone. Also, how are the people whose livelihood depend on these are going to be reimbursed? One might think that these are secondary concerns but unless we provide a better answer to the many of these problems, we cannot bring a permanent change in the world. The focus of the next phase of protests to save the planet should be more to increase the usage of sensible substitutes than simply asking for bans. The time of simply spreading the awareness is over. We need to find solutions and take action. Biotechticle is going to publish a series of articles with solutions, ideas and plans to tackle global warming.
