The fact that fossil fuels are harmful to the environment is now widely accepted. The vast majority of people who care about the environment believe in global warming and understand the need to lower CO2 emissions into our climate. But do you know the cycle of your fossil fuels? Do you know the process of how your fossil fuels can negatively affect the environment around you? In this article, we will explore the effects of how your light switch can cause a California wildfire.
The California wildfires have caused widespread devastation on the West Coast of the United States. They have left families displaced, entire towns have burned down, and individuals have died as a result. Believe it or not, there is a link between these horrific incidents and our energy sources. When you turn on your lights, do you know where the majority of that energy comes from?
Well, if you live in California, the majority of your energy is sourced from “Natural Gases”. Natural Gases are a mixture of Methane, Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide, etc. These gases are naturally found in our atmosphere, but when too much of any one of these gasses are emitted, the atmosphere becomes imbalanced. Also, Natural Gases can use an extreme amount of local clean water, resulting in polluting streams. When these imbalances occur, the environment becomes unstable, and in turn, creates unnatural climate conditions year-round. Drought patterns are created in regions like California due to unnatural conditions where the climate is hotter. These unusually low-to-no-rainfall spells imply ideal conditions for wildfires. And this is the cycle of how your light switch, can cause a California Wildfire.
