Winning the ongoing fight against climate change
Nano Magazine AUGUST 08, 2018
Climate change is a serious issue that is affecting the world, even in the present day (it is no longer a theory of what will happen in the future). Manifestations of the effects of climate change have been realized through a series of atmospheric and weather changes in the last couple of years, including the huge number of hurricanes that plagued the US in 2017, to the series of heatwaves that the UK, Europe and East Asia have been experiencing in 2018.
The main way to try and reverse the effects of climate change and global warming is by reducing the number of greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere.
At present, there is too much of a reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable energy production. Whilst there has been a shift towards renewables (in some countries more than others, with Costa Rica currently leading the way), more effort is needed, and this is one way where nanotechnology can help.
The rest of the article explains solar and other ways to mitigate the damage.
