How can insulating my house help solve Global Warming and Climate Change?
Well insulated houses use less energy to keep them warm. This means that less carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is released into the atmosphere from burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) in our power stations and central heating boilers. Global warming is occurring because large volumes of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide – are accumulating in the Earth’s atmosphere. This causes the planet’s average air and ocean temperatures to increase and sea levels to rise, resulting in increasingly severe weather conditions. This effect is called climate change and it’s already happening. By improving the insulation of your home, you will be playing your part in reducing the effect of global warming.
