Go-Green.ae Launches Several ’Free to Download’ Green Resources
(1 July 2010)

 

Carbon pollution is causing the world’s climate to change, resulting in extreme weather, higher temperatures, more droughts and rising sea levels.

According to Sharad Agarwal, Founder of the Go-Green.ae initiative, “Eleven of the past 12 years, rank amongst the 12 warmest years! Climate change is a global problem requiring a global solution, one where all major carbon polluting nations need to take comprehensive action to stabilise and reduce global levels of carbon pollution. Everyone needs to do their bit to tackle climate change by reducing carbon pollution. We not only have to prepare our children for the environment, we have to prepare the future for our children.”

Go-Green.ae has prepared the following guides that can help individuals and organizations understand the importance of their actions in shaping tomorrow’s world.

• Eco Jargon - A handy guide to help you with all the eco terminology
• Non Green Numbers by Go Green - Some smart statistics and environment number crunchers
• 10 Practical Ways to Go Green – ‘Easy-to-do’ steps that you can implement in your daily life.
• How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint? - What is Carbon Footprint? You can make a difference.
• Facts About Global Warming - Some interesting facts that are hard to argue with.
• Top 10 Reasons to Recycle - A brief guide explaining why recycling is important to all of us.
• Carbon Neutrality, Carbon Emissions and Carbon Offsets – How to achieve Carbon Zero status

According to the ‘Carbon Neutrality’ guide, “Your carbon footprint is a measure of how your domestic and social activities are affecting the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases you produce per year, measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide. Your carbon footprint is the direct effect your actions and lifestyle have on the environment, in terms of carbon dioxide emissions. Every time you drive a car or use electricity, you are contributing to carbon dioxide emissions. Whenever you consume or use a product, it contributes towards your carbon footprint. “

The carbon footprint for an average U.S. household is approximately 150 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) per day, more than twice the European average and nearly five times the global average. Experts suggest we need to reduce our carbon footprint by as much as 80 percent to effectively reverse global warming.

On Go-Green.ae, it is possible to calculate your carbon footprint and then follow steps that enable you to reduce your impact on the planet. By being aware of how your actions impact the Earth, you might easily be able to make some changes for the better.

Go-Green.ae is updated 24/7 with information relating to news, events, technologies, videos, web resources and success stories in the field of energy conservation, sustainability and environmental protection.
