Facts about CARBON DIOXIDE emissions

  • China-coal-plant
  • Use compact fluorescent lamps as they are 4 times energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. Replacing just one 100 watt bulb with a 20 watt CFL can reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 84 kg.
  • Annual carbon dioxide emission of a washing machine at wash temperature 60°C is 119 kg as compared to 21 kg at 25°C. Therefore using a cold cycle in the washing machine can reduce annual carbon dioxide emission by 98 kg per washing machine.
  • Geysers come with a factory setting of 60°C, but a comfortable bath requires around 40°C. Reducing the temperature setting on a 25 litre geyser from 60°C to 40°C can reduce annual carbon dioxide emission by 172 kg per household.
  • By reducing unnecessary use of microwave oven by just 5 minutes a day, each household can reduce carbon dioxide emission by 30 kg.
  • Switching off electrical appliances at the plug point instead of turning them off only with the remote can reduce household’s annual carbon dioxide emissions by 106 grams.
  • By reducing water consumption by just 100 litres a day, each household can reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions between 24 and 63 kg.
  • By using pressure cookers daily instead of cooking in pots and pans with lids, each household can reduce annual carbon dioxide emission by at least 125 kg.
  • By reducing the usage of gas for cooking by just 20 minutes a day, each household can reduce annual carbon dioxide emission by 62 kg.
  • Switching from desktop to laptop can reduce an individual’s annual carbon dioxide emissions between 205 and 279 kg.
  • By turning off just one fan and an incandescent bulb when not in use, each household can reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 28 kg.
  • Using solar water heater instead of a 25 litre geyser can prevent the emission of 687 kg of carbon dioxide per year.

Simple Tips for All

  • 20-25 minutes duration class in schools for environmental awareness.
  • Agricultural land should never be given to anyone, how much price people may wish to pay for it.CATPLE_WALLPAPERS_684
  • Rooftop gardening or plantation to be a must for tall buildings and skyscrapers.
  • Funds to be given to environment-friendly vehicle producing companies like Tesla Motors.
  • Plantation should be recreational. Everyday no. of trees should increase.

  

Trees grown divided by Trees cut should be greater than 1.

Consequently, Increase in rainfall divided by decrease in rainfall becomes greater than 1.

  • Places where further mining activity is not possible should be used for waste dumping.
  • Carry bags made of cloth should be used and polythene should be banned.
  • For light weight objects, bags made of paper should be used.
  • Much attention should be given to flora. Fauna can adapt themselves upto a certain extent, but flora can’t.
