Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today, and one of the ways you can help fight against it is by cutting back on the amount of electricity you use.
What is climate change and how does saving electricity help slow it down?
Climate change refers to the changes in our planet’s weather patterns over a long period of time. When we burn coal, oil or other fossil fuels to make things like electricity, we impact how quickly our climate is changing. That’s because fossil fuels release greenhouse gases when they’re burned, which then build up in the Earth’s atmosphere and cause the planet to warm faster than it has in the past.
That’s why it’s so important that we save electricity!
