“THE EARTH IS DYING OLD MAN”
This sentence — even though the original author forgot a period — is the extreme Twitter battle cry of many Earth inhabitants as a response to the 2020 presidential candidates’ opinions on climate change.
That reaction is too intense for most people and rightfully so. However, in the face of our supposed remaining 12 years (don’t worry, we’ll revisit this statistic) on Earth as we know it, EcoComfort knows, understands, and relates to how hopeless you may feel. Often the most extreme views just come from passionate feelings. Anyone who has ever felt their home threatened knows that it’s natural to react in a passionate way; it feels like an uncontrollable situation, but it doesn’t have to. We’re here to help! Read on to learn more about climate change, and how you can actually help — yes, you! — in a manageable, convenient way.
Taking care of our Earth is something that people have been rallying around for decades. Granted, we’ve come a long way from the 1950’s where apparently people just shook out their picnic blanket onto the lawn. However there are still numerous ways that human beings as a whole could be living more sustainably.
We’re not saying to change your life-style completely. Oftentimes, it feels as though “helping the Earth” is only possible through one extreme: to cut out all plastic, grow your own food, and in general live a lifestyle you’ve probably only ever read about. However, we challenge you to think about living sustainably in a different way.
Think of all the businesses that have evolved over the years to adapt to technology. Almost every industry from big companies like Home Depot to comparatively tiny businesses like the corner hot dog stand have developed and adjusted to account for technology. Now, think of a business you know that doesn’t accept credit cards or have a website. They’re not doing so great, plus as a customer, it’s frustrating, right? In your mind, all they have to do is get a website up and they would probably see almost immediate growth. However, the owner is set in their ways and wants to continue to run their business how they always have, despite the glaringly obvious problems directly under their nose. Sound familiar?
It should. Humans seem intent to live however they want despite the glaringly obvious, scientifically-proven changes to their habitat. So, the question is, how do you live more sustainably? We’re not advertising you abandon everything you’ve ever known and live a life like a professional hippy. We’re simply saying that instead of abandoning all hope of being able to help the Earth, if everyone regularly contributed small actions, we’d be in literally a better place.
As far as the 12-, or maybe 10-year, statistic that you’ve heard, there’s a caveat that is often ignored. According to scientists, it’s not like in 12 years we’ll wake up one day and find ourselves living on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road. Rather, if we don’t begin to change the way that we live over the course of the next decade, scientists don’t see any possibility to reverse, stall, or even stop the damage we’ve perpetrated.
Okay, but what does any of this have to do with your friendly neighborhood installation company?
