Renewable resources are products that can be produced by the earth without running out. It can be anything from bamboo towels that use far less nutrients and pesticides to produce or recycled materials that can save up to 70% of the energy used to make new ones.
Coping Climate Changes With Renewable Resources
If you do not want to contribute to the transport and manufacture of polluting materials, consider the less toxic and renewable alternatives.
Anything that can be used as it was a century ago has a good chance of being powered by renewable resources, such as animals or complicated looking hand powered tools. Let’s say your town is covered in two feet of water and you have to evacuate. Assuming you don’t have a boat, the family horse could be a valuable second option. Horses were seen delivering refugees through the contaminated flood waters of New Orleans after hurricane Katrina.
Promoting Lifestyle With Renewable Resources
Adaptability is one of the most important words for the 21st century. When presented with problems that have been hereto unknown to most living people, history might provide some clues as to how to deal with some of the unexpected consequences of climate change.
Other old ways may also become new again. Travel by ship, for instance, could become the next popular way to honeymoon among the elite, just as it was at the turn of the 20th century.
A Future With Renewable Resources
Without the use of petroleum fuel some industries will have to change dramatically if they are to take advantage of the next trade opportunity. It is likely, for instance, that fuel costs will mean that the majority of items transported will be smaller and lighter than was a concern for much of the last century. Merchants who find ways to use renewable resources in their operations will find their costs increasing slower than those of the competition and they’ll be able to deliver what should be highly coveted heavy goods from overseas. Air travel to transport produce may, however, be a casualty of the 21st century.
