Why does society choose to discuss countless solutions, options, and other alternatives to certain issues only when death is obvious and imminent- no matter what the cost? Yet, when it is not so obvious, we tend to shrink from the challenge to rise to the occasion and look for solutions, options, and alternatives.
So it is with renewable energy solutions, conservation, sustainability initiatives, and technological advancements. The time has come for us to stop ignoring the limitations of the environment and ecosystem around us. We do not have infinite time or resources to stop our fast track towards destruction.
What are we I talking about? We are talking about the nexus and ecosystem of understanding that needs to be developed, shared, and acted upon to preserve, conserve, and sustain human life at its core.
How do you calculate value when it comes to counting the cost related to implementing clean and renewable energy into the mix of energy portfolios offered by traditional power and energy producers? Is it how many tons of carbon output we can reduce, or how many gallons of clean water we can conserve, or how much pollution we reduce? Is it simply how many kilowatts or megawatt-hours we save or how much more we can produce economically? Maybe the answers and solutions can be found by asking ourselves a simple question: Can we afford NOT to invest in renewables, conservation resources, and planetary biological life forms? The answer is an emphatic NO! Therefore, the goal is to put forward reasonable sustainability measures and efforts to ensure our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren have the resources they need
