The Emissions Series
A series of soundscapes inspired by the notion that Climate Change is real, and that its main cause involves emissions made by man. Not all people agree with this theory, even though the scientific community at large has suggested, if not proven, that it is true. The remedy for climate change involves, predominantly and simply, a shift to renewable energy. This has been known for decades, and is possible to achieve, with an admission of the facts and a concerted effort to save our planet.
Scientific proof of this trend can be found on the website of a trusted government agency:
To raise awareness of this issue is only one step. The main reason that is so important is that, as science tracks the rapidly warming tendencies of the planet, it is becoming a great temptation to some to suggest that the process is not happening, or is just “natural.”
People are human– they don’t want to acknowledge something that is inconvenient, to say the least.
Inconvenient, but not impossible to remedy. Many countries have already switched over to renewable energy. Germany, for example, in 2017, had an energy surplus, due to its use of solar and wind power.
It does not take a genius to see what must be done– just someone who admits to facts and agrees that it is time to react responsibly.
I hope that The Emissions Series will help with, at least, this first step– agreeing that the issue is legitimate, and that we can and must respond. To this end, I hope people will raise their awareness of the process of climate change, and share information about it.
