Sure, it is necessary for food protection especially during transportation but people tend to take advantage of this and use them for convenience. If you must know, a single cucumber does not need its own plastic bag! There is no reason to use disposable plastic bags to bring your…

Critics Crushed: The Domination of Clean Energy Jobs

clean energy - Critics Crushed: The Domination of Clean Energy Jobs

One of the constant criticisms of those who do not believe in renewable energy is the idea that it will not generate any form of employment for anyone and the subsequent loss of jobs for others. By ‘others’ it referred to those who worked in the unsustainable fields of coal, oil, or gas. It seemed plausible back when the argument was first introduced. However, it’s been completely blown out of the water since then. In the other side of the pond, the US Energy and Employment Report reflected the information…

Drastically Ignored Signs: The Irrefutable Marks Global Warming Has Left on Europe

cracked earth - Drastically Ignored Signs: The Irrefutable Marks Global Warming Has Left on Europe

Our brightest minds have tried to warn us consistently through the years but were adamantly ignored. Energy and Global Warming are intrinsically interwoven with each other. Humans consume energy. Energy is produced from coal, oil, or gas. These resources do not recover over time. As a consequence, prices go higher and higher. The rapid consumption of these non-renewable resources emits gasses when consumed. These become trapped and continue to heat up our planet. This cycle goes on and on until something gives. In the worst case scenario, it’ll be our…
