When you see headlines like this and on a consistent basis it makes you realise you cannot wait for governments to take action on climate change. It is up to each one of us to take the actions we can.global-land-and-ocean-temperature-anomalies-noaa-Jan---April-2016
As Margaret Meade says “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for April 2016 was 1.10°C above the 20th century average of 13.7°C. This is the highest temperature departure for April since global records began in 1880. This value surpassed the previous record set in 2010 by 0.28°C.
This was also the fourth highest monthly temperature departure among all 1,636 months on record, behind March 2016, 1.23°C, February 2016, 1.19°C, and December 2015, 1.12°C.
Overall, 13 out of the 15 highest monthly temperature departures in the record have all occurred since February 2015, with February 1998 and January 2007 among the 15 highest monthly temperature departures.

 


April 2016 also marks the fifth consecutive month (since December 2015) that the global monthly temperature departure from average has surpassed 1.0°C and it is the 12th consecutive month a monthly global temperature record has been broken, the longest such streak in NOAA’s 137 years of record keeping.
Sometimes people forget what the push for renewables, including energy storage is really about. It’s about making the world a more equitable place for all, humans, plants and animals alike rather than just making it an easy way for some people to make money.
When contemplating battery energy storage people should really be looking on it as a way to protect the earth for their children by limiting the use of fossil fuels in order to protect the environment.
We hear many people say we will take action when……….
or
We are waiting for the price to come down
This is purely taking into account a monetary value on taking action with your life and your environment but in fact there other things that can’t be measured with money alone.
