Each year, the capacity of the earth to counter balance the damage that is being done with toxic pollution and carbon dioxide emissions is reduced to an off-balanced situation. While theorists make the assumption that in time, nature will correct the harm, the quantity of damage is growing to a breaking point. The IEA (International Energy Agency) is an organization that started out with member nations focused on oil crises and maintain energy balance, and has now grown as an advisory committee for potential energy solutions.
The IEA book, entitled Electricity in a Climate-Constrained World, examines ways that the global community can not only keep up, but supersede the needs of electricity while the risk of climate change is minimized. If there is one main theme or topic, it is the fact that generation of electricity must become cleaner and this must be done quickly. The increased temperature of the earth is not only having an effect on animal and plant life, but all areas of human life as well.
The various solutions that are suggested by the IEA cover a varied field, and point blank requires some drastic changes in lifestyle. Experts at IEA have put on the table some potential alterations ranging from stand-by consumption for a network of appliances to capture and storage of carbon. Development of low-carbon producing energy is also the ability to put a price on carbon. They examine the various alternative and renewable energy projects that have been instituted around the world for viability and long term achievement. An example might be the electricity generation in Brazil using sugar-cane by-products and the policies and procedures that allowed Brazil to achieve their level of success with potential to co-habitat with other alternative energy programs.
If we are to achieve reversal of the damage done, the need is to pool all of the ideas, resources and concepts and institute them now.
