The World Climate Crisis, the UK 2050 predictions and UK household energy

The global climate crisis, quick facts and outline

To make people more aware of the major negative implications that pollution has on our planet and its life we have made a quick overview. Within a minute of you reading this blog alone:

  • At least 100 acres of rain-forests will have been cut down worldwide
  • 300,000 tons of ice will have melted in Antarctica
  • 15 plant or animal species will have become extinct
  • 72,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide will be released from fossil fuels
  • 1 million plastic bottles will have been bought worldwide
  • More than 15 tons of plastic will have been dumped in our oceans
  • More than 2 sea birds and mammals will have been killed from pollution
  • 4 people will have died as a result of drinking unclean water

There are simple steps you can take personally to help majorly reduce the above impacts. As well as ensuring you recycle, use minimal single use plastics, use electric vehicles and reduce your meat intake. One of the most impact steps you can take is to ensure you are with a renewable energy supplier. Household energy contributes to over 65% of the UK’s greenhouse gas pollution.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzNP2W8ji1aVqdnvpOeeDNg

The UK 2050 reports and predictions to reach ‘net zero’

The UK 2050 climate emergency has brought forward some extreme realisations for UK citizens. Legislate for an 80% carbon emission reduction in the next 30 years. The UK plans include talks around introducing some of the below:

  • 40,000 offshore turbines
  • 20,000 onshore wind turbines
  • 900KM of wave farms
  • 10,600 tidal range schemes
  • All suitable buildings to get 60% heated water from solar thermal
  • Hydroelectric power to raise rapidly up to 2030 and be sustained
  • Livestock numbers to decrease by 20%
  • Volume of waste to reduce by 20%
  • By 2050 100% zero emission vehicles, all passenger trains electrified and 50% of buses electrified
  • 100% of zero emission cars using fuel cells
  • Average household room temperature decreases to 16oc
  • Over 24M homes insulated, reducing thermal leaking by 50%
  • 80-100% household heating to be supplied by electric (renewable)
  • Energy demand for lighting and appliances needs to reduce by 60% to meet the 2050 80% carbon reduction plans
  • Energy for cooking needs to transfer from gas and electric to solely electric

Many more initial ideas are being brought forward in order to implement these UK climate crises. As you may notice over 60% of the above solutions are related to energy production and making household energy more efficient. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/2050-pathways-analysis
