The Australian Government’s Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency has set up a climate change website that can keep families and businesses and industries up to date on the latest climate change information and ideas that are coming out of Canberra. The website is most specifically designed to tackle the challenges of climate change and focuses on a number of main areas.
- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- Promoting energy efficiency
- Adapting to climate change impacts
- Helping to shape a global solution
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
At present, the main requirement for the human race is a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The Australian government currently invests more than $5billion towards developing clean energy technologies, and once a carbon tax is introduced this amount it set to rise.
Encouraging business to reduce emissions
The new website also encourages Australian businesses “to take action to reduce their emissions through the Clean Business Australia program which promotes and advocates an increase in energy efficiency in Australian workplaces and buildings.”
Encouraging households to take action
It is also important Australian households take action as 20% of Australian carbon pollution is generated by these. The website outlines various ways in which average households across our continent can make a true difference. And while these measures may seem insignificant on their own, when combined with the changes each and every household can make, these impacts can be significant and considerable. Ways to reduce your household’s carbon footprint include considering:
- the ways you travel to and from work
- the ways you travel to and from school
- the way you use electrical appliances
- the way you use your air conditioning
- the way you use your heating appliances
- whether you turn appliances off at the power point when not in use
- turning off computer when not in use
- planting trees
- watching water use
- products you use at home.
