People often cite this piece of information as if other people being worse than us is a reason to not improve our own operations.
This myth comes from those who lack the ability to open their mind to new alternatives or are just complacent to change. The type of people who think, “This is the way it has been, this is the way I’m comfortable with, I’m not going to change and don’t confuse me with the facts.” It is these types of people who cause friction with new ideas and alternatives. Don’t be one of these people.
Everyone can see that fossil fuels aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They have built the life we live today, and everyone should be extremely grateful for the opportunity they have offered. But this extremely fast industrial era that has brought us everything we have today is starting to max out in its potential. This is causing worldwide conflict in a place that should be unified. The oil industry is now fighting amongst itself and everyone is blaming alternatives that are trying to do good, provide new jobs, and get people off of the reliance of fossil fuels in as many areas as possible.
We are all under the same sky and need to start realizing this. Those who do realize this are more than happy to go solar because they take true interest in it, do their research and consult with a local installer, see the benefits with an open mind and how it will payoff for them. Those who do take true interest ultimately end up making the commitment because they see the payoff.
This is the perfect time for another industrial revolution to take place, just as we have had twice before.
We have gone through two main industrial revolutions throughout our history. The first industrial revolution which started in Britain in the late 19th century involved the exploration of coal as it was the easiest and most available fuel to use at the time. The second industrial revolution started in the late 20th century in the United States. The exploration of oil has led us to where we are today.
Like the transition from coal to oil, we are experiencing another transition in major energy sources from oil and gas to renewable energy that earth provides for us every waking day. As our science develops, we are beginning to realize the trade-off of using fossil fuels. These trade-offs are green house gases. In excess green house gases lead to the earth heating, more precipitation being forced into the air, causing more drastic changes in the water cycles. Making hot places hotter, cold places colder, wet places wetter, and dry places dryer.
More and more people are starting to develop this “biosphere consciousness”.
We are starting to see the bigger picture to ourselves. We are all under the same roof.
Now the proposition.
Canada’s emissions are growing steadily with no tangible plan in place to reduce them. If emissions are growing, and emissions are causing climate change, then other people emitting more than us is hardly a defense or moreover, a reason to not implement clean technology.
Canada’s emissions are not the worst in the world, but if we had a larger population, they would be very close. Based on data from 2015, we are twice as polluting per capita than China. The only reason they pollute more than most of the world, is because they are most of the world. They have an enormous amount of people within their country.
As a prosperous, developed nation, we have the opportunity and the capability to be a leader in emissions control which will lead to a more prosperous economy.
Blaze Solar has taken it upon ourselves to educate the Saskatchewan people and provide them with the opportunity to go solar and make it the best experience possible. Years ago solar began to get a bad reputation because the technology was not efficient enough and cost far too much to make it worthwhile for the average person. Today we have hundreds of companies dedicating their time to figure out new ways to take advantage of the Sun and Earth's energy because they understand that we are all under the same roof and what we do ultimately effects all of us, and most importantly,
The sun, the rivers, and the wind are never going to send you an invoice.
We believe we have done our part to educate and convince you to start considering solar.
The next step is up to you.
