Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 17, 2008 -- The fight against global warming is unremitting and the website [http://www.4ecotips] keeps everyone â from the general public to high-flying industrialists and entrepreneurs â up to speed with the very latest solutions for beating this major scourge of our times.
For example, 4ecotips reports that there is a major upswing in renewable energy production. In 2007, global wind generating capacity is estimated to have increased by 28%, while grid-connected solar photovoltaic capacity rose by 52%.
In fact, Mohamed El-Ashry, chair of the Renewable Energy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) is quoted in 4ecotips.com as having said: âSo much has happened in the renewable energy sector during the past five years that the perception of some politicians and energy-sector analysts lag far behind the reality of where the renewables industry is today!â
4ecotips.com also reveals that the UK is witnessing the rise of a new group of eco-conscious young people that are provocative about their concerns regarding the environment. Called the âGreenagersâ, 95% of this new breed of 4-15 year-olds identify global warming as a subject they are âconcernedâ about with over half â 59% - confirm global warming is something that makes them âvery concernedâ.
Around 70% of them believe climate change is something that will affect them in their lifetime and an outstanding 95% believe itâs important to encourage other people to be more environmentally friendly.
4ecotips.com also highlights a UK league table of whoâs greenest, whoâs keenest and whoâs lagging behind so far as northwest towns and cities are concerned when it comes to tree cover in urban areas.
Itâs a question that needs answering, points out 4ecotips.com. Though an initial questionnaire was sent to the regionâs tree officers as preparation for a study, apparently anecdotal evidence from various parts of the region suggests that urban tree cover may actually be reducing, despite significant investment being made in planting and new woodland areas.
China and India are probably two of the worldâs most significant emerging economies and, as such, are highly criticised for their regard to the causes of global warming. However, an article by one of 4ecotips.comâs special correspondents explains that both governments have taken positive steps to incorporate sustainable development into higher education.
Indeed, they are âgoing several notches ahead of the basic environment educationâ. Sustainable education âhopes to prepare the citizens of tomorrow to understand and not undermine the importance of longterm survival and thereby comprehend the dangers of over-consumption and production, pollution, deforestation and excess use of natural resources!â
Finally, 4ecotips.com has announced the availability of âthe worldâs first environmentally friendly golf shoe.â Itâs a product that sets new standards for sustainable footwear and manufacture.
