Climate Change

The worldwide ecosystem is at risk and cannot tolerate further economic and population growth without adverse and irreversible damage. Carbon emissions are growing at a rate of 1-2 % per year. The global community is creating hypoxic zones on earth’s estuaries and creating extensive damage to our ecosystem. In addition, the melting of glaciers and the depletion of groundwater supplies further stresses critical water supply conditions. Today’s extreme weather events also increase the risk to our ecosystems, to our homes, and to our health. If we continue current levels of detrimental emissions and resource utilization, the problems we see today are going to be exasperated.

Technological advances can have major positive impacts on protecting our environment. Combustion engines must lower their carbon emissions by becoming more efficient. The automobile industry must be more aggressive in moving to electric powered vehicles. Industries must reduce its negative impact on habitat and water resources. The world must find ways to recycle and re-engineer production processes. Technological cooperation will be essential to combat this global problem. The scientific community must focus on technologies for environmental sustainability at the global level. In the US alone, climate change legislations will have a significant impact. The four main US initiatives for reducing green house gases are; 1) reduce emissions by 83% by 2050 via cap and trade systems focused on the electric utility sector and large emitters of greenhouse gases; 2) EPA enforced equipment performance standards for all other CO2 emitters; 3) Electric utilities need to generate 20% of their power from renewable energy; 4) Various efficiency standards for buildings, equipment and appliances.

By advancing new energy efficiency technologies, The TechnoWise Group can be the leader in efficient equipment and appliance energy consumption.
