Over Thanksgiving weekend, the United Nations released a report that warns the world is at risk of exceeding its target of keeping global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. The signatories of the Paris climate agreement – which includes Canada – will soon be reviewing their respective progress on national emissions goals. In Canada, the goal was to cut emissions by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. However, the country is already behind on this objective, despite positive steps that have been taken, which include the elimination of coal-fired power plants, investing in clean technologies and renewable energy, and of course, increasing the use of energy-efficiency (EE) in homes and businesses.
While there are many factors to climate change, both internationally and nationally that are out of our immediate control, reducing the amount of energy used in our homes and increasing the use of energy efficient practices and equipment in our places of work is something that many of us can influence and contribute to.
