I think that all of us need to start making serious efforts to address temperature change, & all of us need to do it 1 way or another.
When I say this, I’m not suggesting that all of us completely ban plastic & other environmentally detrimental products unless they can absolutely be replaced by something else. Bottles are a perfect example—in multiple situations all of us should be using glass instead of plastic. However, if you’ve ever worked in health care or taken care of sick relatives, you guess that plastic gloves cannot be phased out because a biodegradable alternative wouldn’t be resistant to liquids & fluids. There are just some applications of plastic that are essential to the health & safety of people who are sick or getting procedures after injuries. However, all of us can lead people away from environmentally detrimental heating & cooling methods. That means no wasteful portable A/Cs, nor any oil burning gas furnaces. Oil will continue to be a rare resource & producing & burning it harms the environment in a actually real way. By contrast, the electricity needed to initiate the refrigerant cycle in a heat pump is a mere fraction compared to the fuel burned in an oil or gas powered gas furnace. And if you are harvesting your heat from outside air, underground earth, or a water source—it solves half of the problem associated with indoor heat. Geothermal heat pumps are high-priced but some state & local governments give out tax & rebate incentives to anyone looking to install a geothermal heat pump. If all of the people who use indoor heat were switched to geothermal heat pumps, it could have a giant impact on the future of temperature change.
