Having energy efficient system.

Byline: _

We have little doubt that history will look back on the 21st century's going greenclimate change movement as largely a fraud. Constant bombardment of stories about sea levels rising global warming melting the ice caps and carbonbased fuels destroying the environment is now a common feature. Regular urbanization deforestation evaporation of agriculture lands and industrialization are all human activities that are contributing towards environment degradation and climate change. However green revolution of the 21st century has again got a wider recognition following these human activities on an enhanced speed. This revolution is largely a bust because consumers have found that it costs too much and they rightly question just how much the environment rather than individuals and companies that are raking in the cash really benefits from it. In fact we all need to rethink about reducing our carbon footprint in a practical way.

But we see a little difference in buying carbon offsets and buying 16th century indulgences. The green revolution has had a dramatic impact on incomes and food supplies in many developing countries. However the impact goes far beyond these immediate and very important results. This revolution has facilitated institutional and social changes in rural areas and provided opportunities for selfsustaining economic growth and reduced poverty. The outcome of technological change is influenced by institutional and policy environment within which it is introduced. Where such environments have been favourable the distribution of the benefits has been widespread but where they have been unfavourable and appropriate changes have not been made the potential benefits from the green revolution to promote economic growth reduce poverty and facilitate selfsustaining development tion of green houses culture across the world as the more big buildings are constructed the more production of energy will be

enerated and released to air thus impacting the environment and global warming. During construction of mega buildings using recycled material during construction reducing the waste leaving a job site and reusing materials are termed as good initiatives that need to be promoted and recognized at all level. There is a dire need to convert our buildings into energy efficient units especially in the wake of regular energy crisis as well as protect our environment from further degradation. Encouragement on the part of government should also come in terms of recognition of initiatives and projects from individuals as well as private sector. Remedial and reformed steps are the only option left with the authorities concerned.
