Renewable energy is defined as the ability for a system to self-support without the use of external resources. This can be done by capturing, harnessing, and efficiently using the energy of the environment. It’s an inspiring thought that challenges people to think about the world around them and how their actions and choices can be intertwined with what is going on in nature. A recent study by the World Wildlife Fund, “What Is Renewable Energy?” It is hopeful for those who are looking for a solution to the growing global environmental crisis.
For those committed to fighting the global warming cause, “Sustainable Sustainability” is an even more compelling necessity. Sustainability means that the Earth’s ecosystems can support life without depleting the Earth’s ozone layer or depleting its natural water supply. Sustainability also means protecting the natural environment from further degradation through active involvement. This would involve, for example, people taking responsibility for reducing their carbon emissions, and actively supporting efforts to restore the Earth’s health, as well as making changes that will allow future sustainability to occur. The ultimate goal is for a complete overhaul of how we live by building an interconnected, effective global environmental infrastructure that allows us to work with nature as we protect and cultivate it.
When we think about sustainability, the focus typically turns to a certain level of total environmental impact or EGC. However, the idea of Sustainability goes further than this. Sustainability can also refer to the relationship between humans and the natural world and how people can sustainably co-exist and work together to preserve the natural world. The pillars of sustainable development are co-management and interdependency. Managing resources to a point where they are not negatively impacting the natural world is known as co-management. Working with others to preserve the integrity of ecosystems and the earth is known as interdependency.
