Reduce Global Warming Efficiently
The more we produce pollution, the more damage is inflicted, and the higher the costs will be. Since the money we earn at one place will most likely by spent somewhere else, it is to our disadvantage to pollute immensely. The costs of the damages often skyrocket towards the general wealth we create by polluting. Not only will it damage our pockets and life savings, it can also inflict crucial health problems in the long run, which means that each and every single person in this world should avoid a great amount of pollution.
Keeping Numbers Composed
There should be a benchmark that we should sustain in order to level our ecosystem and our efforts. This point is achieved when no serious harm is done to the environment, and when the costs of pollution and the resources spent to abolish it are level. Today, for example, the prices of damages tower above the money we put in to reduce global warming. If the investment was relatively greater, we could reduce gas emissions and therefore halt climate change. This way, we steer away from natural calamities that would be greater in cost than the profit we create by polluting.
The Right Way of Eliminating Pollution
Realistically, pollution is unavoidable, especially today where our advancements are becoming a part of daily routines. In addition to this, it would be impossible and simply detrimental at the same time. We need to root out wealth from this planet in order to sustain the growing population, and this is impossible without producing any form of pollution at all. After all, agriculture is also a significant form of pollution. The point here is to exploit the resources without disrupting the equilibrium of nature. Take transportation, for example, the planet would not face global warming troubles if less than half of today’s cars are on the road instead of the 700 million present today.
Risk and Reward Ratios
Assuming that there are only 100 million cars today; is it worth taking that number lower if our planet can tolerate the said number without any problem? Let’s dwell on the price of investment in other transportation it would take to bring down the number to at least 10 percent of 100 million. In fact, that investment should be employed in other sectors where it would be easier to reduce emissions, such as power stations.
The approximate number of cars running today runs north of 700 million. If we want to diminish this number to at least half, the efforts would prove to be realistic and output would yield positive numbers. This was already started by investing in green vehicles, which will trim down the equivalent number of cars today. A small amount of resources provided to fight pollution would tremendously scale down the damages, especially when pollution levels are at a high.
Meanwhile, if pollution levels are down, we would need a large chunk of funds to reduce it even by a little. To reduce the number of cars running from 100 million to 10 million, efforts would have to go a long way, but the reduction of pollution might remain at barely significant numbers. As opposed to the benefits of converting cars to a hybrid system, it would be ideal to take that amount of money and put it in a place where it could make greater impact.
Looking for the Best
There are numerous ways to get rid of the carbon dioxide emissions and it should be the top priority to select the least expensive solution in order to optimize the outcome. Investing in the development of a motor using safe and clean energy is the right path to take.
Ultimately, the amount we need to invest to wipe out pollution doesn’t bear an end, and it wouldn’t be possible without altering day to day activities, which doesn’t really capture the interest of most individuals living in this modern world.
