Having energy efficient system

We have little doubt that history will look back on the 21st centurys going green-climate change movement as largely a fraud. Constant bombardment of stories about sea levels rising, global warming melting the ice caps and carbon-based fuels destroying the environment is now a common feature. Regular urbanization, deforestation, evaporation of agriculture lands and industrialization are all human activities that are contributing towards environment degradation and climate change. However, green revolution of the 21st century has again got a wider recognition following these human activities on an enhanced speed. This revolution is largely a bust because consumers have found that it costs too much, and they rightly question just how much the environment, rather than individuals and companies that are raking in the cash, really benefits from it. In fact, we all need to rethink about reducing our carbon footprint in a practical way. But we see a little difference in buying carbon offsets and buying 16th century indulgences. The green revolution has had a dramatic impact on incomes and food supplies in many developing countries. However, the impact goes far beyond these immediate and very important results. This revolution has facilitated institutional and social changes in rural areas and provided opportunities for self-sustaining economic growth and reduced poverty. The outcome of technological change is influenced by institutional and policy environment within which it is introduced. Where such environments have been favourable, the distribution of the benefits has been widespread, but where they have been unfavourable and appropriate changes have not been made, the potential benefits from the green revolution to promote economic growth, reduce poverty and facilitate self-sustaining development has not been fully exploited. All this has now necessitated promotion of green houses culture across the world as the more big buildings are constructed the more production of energy will be generated and released to air thus impacting the environment and global warming. During construction of mega buildings, using recycled material during construction, reducing the waste leaving a job site, and reusing materials are termed as good initiatives that need to be promoted and recognized at all level. There is a dire need to convert our buildings into energy efficient units especially in the wake of regular energy crisis as well as protect our environment from further degradation. Encouragement on the part of government should also come in terms of recognition of initiatives and projects from individuals as well as private sector. Remedial and reformed steps are the only option left with the authorities concerned.
