The world must invest in renewable energy
By Joseph Muthama | December 3rd 2015
The Climate Change Summit in Paris, France, which has attracted more than 150 heads of state and government and more than 40,000 participants, is unquestionably a step in the right direction.
Over the years, global warming and subsequent change of climate have caused irreversible damageto our environment leading to unpredictable weather patterns. The ongoing El Nino rain that has caused untold sufferings to many Kenyans speaks volumes about the ravages and vagaries of climate change.
As a matter of fact, climate change has disrupted the supply chain thus increasing the cost of raw materials and energy. Excessive greenhouse emissions deplete the ozone layer hence unprecedented global warming.
Global warming knows no territorial boundaries and developing countries are the main victims of greenhouse emissions. For instance, according to scientists, deforestation is responsible for about 20 per cent of world’s greenhouse gas emissions and has adverse impact on ecosystem and biodiversity.
Industrialised nations are the real environmental villains and therefore should be in forefront of mitigating the effects of climate change.
In order to reduce the greenhouse emissions, the global citizens should join hands and invest in renewable natural resources.
