The ClimateForce Challenge

A 7 year goal to clean up 326 million tonnes of C02 before the year 2025.

    To commit yourself to a 7-year goal is not a decision to be made lightly. However, with the current realities of what is happening within our global climate, I believe that striving to clean up 326 million tonnes of C02 before the year 2025 is a worthy way to spend these coming years.

 

    To realize the ambitions of the 2016 United Nation’s Paris Agreement to hold global temperatures below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, we all need to reconsider how we interact with energy in our economies, our homes, and even our own bodies. Working towards 2025, the campaign aims to stimulate companies, schools, foundations, and individuals to make a measurable impact in the way they understand and use energy through our solutions set.

ClimateForce: Solutions

    Below is a list of active ways we can all reduce, or clean up C02 in our lives. Commvault is in the process of creating an application which will act as a platform to capture and record people’s involvement with these solutions.

 

    An estimated amount of carbon will be given to each solution listed below. Collectively the total amount of carbon cleaned up with we collected via an application.

 

    The current solutions framework below features three solutions for each major category. One is easy to achieve, the next harder, with the third requiring the most time and fiscal investment.

 

A) Lifestyle

  1. Transport

-Driving style (up to 30%fuel reductions), telecommuting, using public transport, biofuels, and carpooling.

-Demanding policy makers, and community leaders for greener transport infrastructure.

-Investing in hybrid, hydrogen, and electric transport systems- cars, ship, and cargo.

  1. Food/Waste

-Waste reduction: promoting reduce, reuse, and recycle.

-Consider vegetarian, farmers markets, and less beef.

-Eradicating food deserts, water projects, and distributing clean cooking stoves.

  1. Community

-Sourcing locally from responsible suppliers.

-Airconditioning/heaters energy efficiency, LED bulbs, insulation, and requesting green utilities for providers.

-Installing solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal systems in home/businesses.

 

B) Infrastructure

  1. Carbon Clean-Up

-More trees in communities, offices, and home

-Investing in organic/artificial capture at a large scale

-Carbon offsetting/storage, methane capture, algae farms

  1. Renewables

-Engaging in local, and national energy policy- make your voice heard

-Electric, hydrogen, biofuel, and merging technology investment

-Solar, wind, tide, battery, and geothermal microgrid systems. Invest or hands on volunteer work.

  1. Legislation

– Support elected officials in cities, states, and nations with strong, progressive positions and agendas on climate.

– Educating. Take time each week to learn about clean energy. Work hard to separate sense from nonsense.

-Support efforts of researchers and entrepreneurs innovating to create better solutions.


326 million represents the current population of the United States of America- 1 tonne per person does not seem too unrealistic!
