In our environmental article, we listed a number of alarming facts about climate change, ecological destruction, and pollution. And it’s pretty easy to fool yourself into thinking that these only affect polar bears and tree frogs.
But global pollution affects everyone – including you, your children, and your children’s children.
It’s not always easy to see it like that. But interactive pollution maps like this can give you a peek into how bad the situation really is. You’ll notice that the air quality in China is horrendous. The smog is so bad on some days that pilots can’t even land planes at the airport.
But that’s in China. Can pollution on the other side of the world really influence your health?
The quick answer is yes. We live in a finite, interconnected system. Everything matters.
Don’t believe us?
Remember Hurricane Katrina? It was localized almost entirely in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico (where most hurricanes tend to happen). And then 10 years later, Hurricane Sandy comes along and wallops the entire eastern seaboard. The next one could reach Greenland?
Climate change and pollution are bad – and getting worse. And these changes have detrimental effects on your health.
How Going Solar Can Protect Your Health
When you install solar panels on your home or business, you help to reduce global pollution. Remember that America pumps out 6 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year – 40% of which comes from power plants (like those operated by SDG&E).
The more panels that we install nationwide, the fewer instances of emphysema, asthma, lung cancer, bronchitis, dry eyes, rashes… honestly the list goes on and on. There’s a lot of bad stuff in the air, water, and soil. Each additional solar panel that goes up helps to reduce these toxins.
