Currently, over 500 wildfires are raging throughout the state of California.
And no, it’s not because we Californians do a poor job cleaning our forest floors.
And the duration of wildfires in California.
But it’s not just California’s problem; it’s all of our problems.
The U.S. east coast has seen a surge in the frequency of hurricanes. Island nations and coastal cities are spending billions to fight rising sea levels. And we’ve all heard about the rapid melting of the ice sheets in Greenland.
No matter where you go, the effects of climate change are there.
This is All of our Problem
Every human alive has to deal with the effects of climate change in some way or another.
Right now, people are:
Losing their homes
Losing their livelihoods
Or worse, losing their lives
And we need to accept that our society’s reliance on dirty energy (Fossil fuels) is playing a significant role in it.
According to an article published by NASA, 97% of the scientific community agree and understands that humans and their activities contribute to rapid climate change.
Climate Denial Doesn’t Only Make No Sense; It’s Dangerous.
How can anyone argue with 97% of the scientific community who have dedicated their lives to understanding natural phenomena?
Climate change is real, it’s burning down some people’s front doors, and it’s demanding an immediate response.
The State of California has taken massive action to make progress towards a 100% renewable energy grid.
It’s up to businesses and individuals to do what they can to help create a stable future for our planet and future generations.
It’s time to wake up and smell the ashes. This is our reality, and it’s time we all accept it.
Contenza’s Commitment To Fight Climate Change
As a real estate development company, Contenza finds itself uniquely positioned to join the fight against climate change.
We all need to heat and cool our homes.
We all need safe running water.
We all need electricity.
No one is saying we need to go back to the Stone Age, but we all need to do our part to consume energy responsibly when it’s in our power to do so.
That’s why Contenza ensures all the properties we develop or re-develop are as energy-efficient as possible.
Simple things such as:
Dual pane windows.
Energy-efficient appliances and fixtures.
These can have a significant impact on the amount of energy a property consumes.
Contenza Means Energy Efficient in Latin.
It doesn’t, but energy-efficient homes are one way Contenza Properties will be joining the fight against climate change.
