#Solar key to tackling #climatechange and meeting #energy demands

The increasing issue of climate change has become a threat to all creatures, the environment, and biodiversity on Earth. This has become a challenge in that the world must unite to overcome. The challenges faced by the modern-day world is but a fraction of what we can expect to face in the future, if we do not react quickly and work to mitigate the effects of climate change. Using fossil fuels to generate power has become one of the main causes of greenhouse gas emissions, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels is one of the most important steps towards addressing climate change, by using alternative solutions like renewable energy, solar power, wind power, hydropower, geothermal energy and tidal power, while rationalising consumption and enhancing energy efficiency. Increasing our dependence on renewable energy sources in the energy sector may be necessary, through there...
