It was during my primary days at school, almost around 2 decades ago, when teachers and various people used to talk about climate change and the impact which we have started to experience. At that time, people did not take it seriously as many considered it as useless and the impact of this change will not be felt ever. Now, everyone is seen talking about climate change and people started to take it seriously. We can see hot summers and shivering winters and devastating storms and flooding. All these unusual weather patterns are due to climate change. Sincelong, we have been using fossil fuels as the primary power. Fossil fuels include oil, gas and coal. As fossil fuels were used to create power, this resulted in industrial revolution and the production sector was modernized. Burning of fossil fuels created harmful gases which are considered harmful and are a major source of climate change. After research, geologists came to know that the availability of fossil fuels is limited and it will cause problems in the days ahead. So, this is the point where renewable energy comes into force.
