The future and present climatesolutions
In fact, there are solutions to the climate threats that are going on today and solutions that prevent a catastrophic future if the climate changes in the future.
On the one hand, there is a great revolution in energy, we now have the opportunity to use the sun's energy, which is an "infinite" source for man today.
Solar panels on rooftops or in solar panel parks (for example in the desert) would be enough to supply us with energy all over the earth!
Just think what this would mean for the African countryside that could have access to computers and technical devices in general.
In India, almost every house has its own solar panel which, thanks to an energy converter, a so-called "solar box", in the home that makes the electricity shareable with other households.
Microelectricity is this phenomenon called!
It would actually be enough to just install a large solar panel park in the desert and it would give us all the energy we need around the world.
The latest idea, to store solar energy through batteries adapted for just this, is what we really need to succeed in using solar energy on earth. But batteries are not environmentally friendly as they are filled with heavy metals, maybe there is an even better way to store electricity?
In addition to solar energy, Stephen Hawking proposes nuclear fusion as a future energy source that does not have any side effects on the environment.
In addition to better energy sources, we will invest everything in improving agriculture worldwide. There are a number of ways to improve our agriculture.
The good news is that only 20% of the earth's farms are industrial, it is precisely these farms that destroy our soils and add toxins to nature. The other farms are private and grow at least partly organically.
To regain the small soil we have received on the soil, we must ensure that the soil begins to bind carbon again, this can be done partly by growing varieties on the plots but also by growing special plants on the plots such as the plant Kernza. This plant can turn a nutrient-poor soil into a rich, arable soil.
In addition, common algae can help bind carbon in the soil, a very environmentally friendly alternative!
A major threat we face is that the earth is drying up, and that the soil is disappearing due to man depleting the earth. We use toxins and nitrogen that plague the earth, which turns the earth into a sandy moon. It is difficult to grow in sand but not at all impossible, for example the chickpea is one of the most durable food plants that can be grown directly in the sand!
But not all plants actually need soil to survive and grow large, many plants actually grow in water and now we in the western world have also begun to discover that aquaculture in the form of so-called hydropondic cultivation can be an effective method.
One hope is that we can someday grow our edible plants in salt water, today there are already tomatoe plants that have been genetically engineered by American researchers (University of California) to enable them to grow in salt water.
Cultivation in salt water would mean a revolution for cultivation in Africa and the Middle East.
If we succeed in introducing more and better agriculture, there will be peace in countries that are affectedtoday by unrest or even war when people have access to both food and employment that feels meaningful!
