Material Efficiency Holds Potential For Climate Neutrality.

More efficient use of materials in residential buildings and cars could save enormous amounts of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050: 20 to 52 gigatons of CO2 equivalents for residential buildings and 13 to 26 gigatons of CO2 equivalents for cars, which amounts to up to two-thirds of current consumption. This is the conclusion reached by a research team led by Dr. Stefan Pauliuk, Assistant Professor of Sustainable Energy and Material Flow Management at the University of Freiburg.

Is the World Ready for Carbon Prices?

Mitigation of climate change is a global responsibility that all nations take part in. 

Being in an era where industrialization and modernization exacerbate the condition of our environment, among the measures that policymakers proposed to ease the impact of this environmental phenomenon is to impose a Pigouvian tax on firms and industries for each ton of greenhouse gases that they emit through a taxation policy called carbon taxation.

Carbon Footprints

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use, and end-of-life of a product or service. It includes carbon dioxide — the gas most commonly emitted by humans.

Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing and food. 

There are simple choices you can make in your day-to-day life to lessen your personal impact on the environment.

ETHIC & RESPONSABILITY

Supposing as true the fact that "mankind is superior to all the other animals" we have major responsabilities on our shoulders.

Let me make an example:

Plastic by itself is really an extraordinary item , the problem with it is HOW do we manage plastic. Infact is recognised that we should avoid plastic waste and we should be more responsible in using it (even switching to non-plastic items).

Now let me ask you, HOW DO WE TREAT ANIMALS? IS THAT RESPONSIBLE AND FAIR?
