The greenhouse effect has been a problem that the world has faced since it’s industrialization in the 20th century. The carbon footprint the world is leaving behind with huge levels of consumption and nearly 8 billion people living on the planet will be enormous. The importance of fighting against tomorrow’s climate change will forever remain most successful if implemented sooner than later. Essentially, the greenhouse effect compounds itself. In this sense, as the problem gets worse, it becomes more and more of a self fulfilling prophecy. The ironic part of the greenhouse effect is that it’s created by our earth’s atmosphere. Yet, we as lifeforms would not survive on this planet without our atmosphere. While at the same time, our atmosphere compounds the greenhouse effect and makes our planet closer to being an uninhabitable planet. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly how the greenhouse effect works.
A Closer Look at the Greenhouse Effect
According to Wikipedia, “The greenhouse effect is the process by which radiation from a planet’s atmosphere warms the planet’s surface to a temperature above what it would be without its atmosphere.” Simply put, it’s the method by which the Earth’s atmosphere projects back the heat from the sunshine back to the Earth, essentially reheating the planet instead of leaving back into the galaxy. The problem of the greenhouse effect is that it’s exacerbated by climate change. The worse climate change becomes, the more of a negative impact it will have on our planet. There have been some brilliant minds from the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) which suggest we may be able to pull the bad chemical out of the air to protect our planet in the future. This story from MIT discusses the overview of such ambitious efforts to clean up the environments we’ve dirtied with pollutants.
The VenusEnergy Solution
VenusEnergy wants to start the solution for climate change directly at its source, the production, and consumption of energy. With regards to the heavily energy dependent blockchain systems, the need for a renewable energy source becomes extremely important. VenusEnergy wants to implement solar, wind, and thermal energy solutions which can power the future of blockchain mining. To do so, the team has developed an exciting plan in which they will power their mining operations through renewable energy. Furthermore, the team believes they can become a key thought leader within the cryptocurrency industry to encourage other businesses and individuals mining cryptocurrencies to switch to a renewable energy source.
