In the coming months and years, we will all be seeing a great deal more about the Climate Crisis affecting our planet. Humans are an intelligent species and with scientists identifying the causes of environmental and climatic breakdown, solutions are being found. From replacing plastic with biodegradable material, to producing power from clean energy sources (wind, solar, hydro, wave etc.) breakthroughs are being made every week.
We can all make a difference!
Now, is the time to think about this subject, chat it over with family, friends and colleagues and make a few changes. For over a decade the Scottish Wildlife Trust have had a strong Green Policy throughout the organisation and we have a leaflet at Loch of the Lowes with useful information on how to be sustainable and reduce, reuse and recycle on a domestic/personal scale.
Of course, if big businesses or governments implement policies there can be huge steps forward taken almost overnight. For example, do you remember back in 2014 Scotland brought in a 5p charge for a single use carrier bag? In the first 12 month period the 7 major grocery retailers in Scotland used 650 million FEWER single use carrier bags (800 million 2013-2014) Now, we take it for granted. Change can sound scary but taken in small steps (like with the bags) it is surprisingly easy and incredibly worthwhile.
How Nature Can be Part of the Solution to Climate Change
Here are three short videos (about one and a half minutes each) from Scottish Wildlife Trust illustrating the Five threats to Nature from Climate Change, How Nature Can be Part of the Solution and How Healthy Seas can help fight climate change.
