Live information on the remotest of area and solution to your any problem, be it basic or complex, can be achieved with the help of information technology. Apart from these all, information technology has served human kind in a manner nobody expected it to initially. Information technology has helped reducing the global warming throughout our planet.
Global warming is one of the gravest dangers posed to the environment in today’s era, due to the emission of green house gases. Recent discoveries including the scientific advances in Information Technology have drastically reduced the carbon emission of the globe by decreasing the energy need created by internet processing of multiple tasks including the bank transactions, online ticket booking, shopping etc. Moreover, the non-renewable sources of energy utilized to generate the power for these IT transactions could be further reduced with the help of ‘Green Technology’.
“Two thousand scientists, in a hundred countries, engaged in the most elaborate, well organized scientific collaboration in the history of humankind, have produced long-since a consensus that we will face a string of terrible catastrophes unless we act to prepare ourselves and deal with the underlying causes of global warming.”
Global Warming – Global warming is the dramatic and unexpected surge in temperature of the climate, which is a common abode for many different species and not just human beings, caused as a result of series of negative human activities like burning of fossil fuels( coal, oil and gas) and large scale deforestation. Burning of fossil fuels releases a large amount of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). These gases act as a thick blanket and absorb thermal radiations emitted by the earth’s surface, thereby resulting in the planet to warm up significantly. According to the reports of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global
