We’re on course for our warmest year to date… (Although it doesn’t really feel like it right now!)
Thursday 11th December 2014
So, today we've got a treat from you all. We're starting up some guest blogs from Office Friendly's Alex Stone:
This year is going to be the hottest globally and for the UK since records began, according to an early estimate, although it really doesn’t feel like it right now! In the first 10 months of 2014, global average air temperature was about 0.57 Celsius above the long-term average. And the first eleven months in the UK have produced an average temperature 1.6C above the long-term. A separate study by the UK Met Office says the observed temperatures would be highly unlikely without the influence of greenhouse gases produced by humans. Oh dear, not us humans behaving badly again.
So what does this new information, about our upcoming warm year, mean?
The green house gases we produce are having a detrimental impact on the beautiful world we live on, which is shame because we all love our pretty little spot on this earth that we call home.
And how can we stop it?
The answer is simple: we can all take small manageable steps to reduce our carbon footprint, in turn- reducing the green house gas emissions which are causing the change in temperature, and leading to environmental problems. Whether we choose to manage our waste better, to use recycled products or to work with businesses who have sustainability at heart, there are a huge range of actions you can take to make a difference.
