[Original] Green Future, Low Carbon Life-Xie Linfang (Administration Department)



"Low-carbon life" as the name implies means that the energy consumed in daily life and rest should be reduced as much as possible, thereby reducing carbon, especially carbon dioxide emissions, thereby reducing air pollution and slowing ecological deterioration. But I think that "low-carbon life" is not only a life of reducing carbon emissions and saving resources, but also a "green life" that we all pursue and urgently need to establish, and it is a way of life. Gorgeous slogans who will shout, but adhere to a life attitude is not everyone can persevere. Although

low-carbon life requires the government to create a boosting institutional environment, including formulating long-term strategies, introducing policies to encourage scientific and technological innovation, and implementing measures such as

financial subsidies

and green credit , it also requires enterprises to actively follow up and join "collective action " to develop low-carbon economy. But it mainly depends on people to consciously change their ideas and practice them in their lives. Nowadays, the concept of "low carbon life " is gradually accepted by all countries in the world. More and more people are joining the "low-carbon family". They emphasize that today, when promoting healthy life has become a trend, "low-carbon life " is no longer an ideal, but also a lifestyle of "caring for the earth, starting from me " . A good lifestyle is accumulated by reasonable habits. Dr. Pa


, chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and 2007 Nobel Prize Nobel Prize winner, said : "can help curb global warming " by not eating meat, riding bicycles and consuming less. Low-carbon living criteria for low pollution, low consumption and low emissions, and more savings. One of the important ways of low-carbon lifestyle is to get rid of the hobby of "convenient consumption" at the cost of high energy consumption. "Convenience" is a popular value in modern business marketing and consumer life. Many convenient consumption patterns in people inadvertently waste a huge amount of energy. For example, according to the estimation of refrigeration technology experts, supermarket power consumption


is used for freezers, while the power consumption of open freezers is 20% higher than that of glass door freezers . According to this calculation, an open freezer in a medium-sized supermarket consumes about 4.8 degrees of electricity a year, which is equivalent to about 19 tons of standard coal, about 48 tons of carbon dioxide and about 19 liters of clean water. There are still many such data in life, for example: cars: a large-displacement car that travels 2 kilometers in the city every year releases 2 tons of carbon dioxide. The engine releases 2.5 kg of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere for every liters of fuel burned by 1 . Computers: Use one year average indirect emissions 10.5 kg carbon dioxide. washer: indirect CO2 emissions per year 7.75 kg . Human body: Each person releases approximately 1140 g of carbon dioxide per day through breathing. However, as long as photosynthesis exists, the carbon dioxide consumed to produce food is essentially in balance with the carbon dioxide released through respiration. Heating: Heating using kerosene as fuel emits 2400 kg of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in a year. Carbon dioxide emissions from natural gas are 1900 kg , while electric heaters are only 600 kg. Refrigerators: Indirect CO2 emissions per year 6.3 kg . There are many examples of this. The development of high energy consumption has brought us a devastated environment. Looking at the problems of urban air quality, water environment quality, traffic noise, and urban solid waste disposal caused by high carbon emissions, we must make our own efforts. Reach a consensus on this concept of low-carbon life and act together. "Low-carbon life" poses an unprecedented problem to mankind. There is no ready-made experience, theory and choice model. Our only choice is to innovate and innovate our life model, with the purpose of protecting the earth's homeland and benefiting the future of mankind. One of the effective ways to avoid catastrophic changes in the climate and maintain the sustainable development of mankind.

browsing Chinese history, we envy the ancient "low-carbon life" to bring them the green world.

Su Dongpo is looking at the turbulent blue waves in Chibi and singing "the great river goes east, the waves are gone", and the depression of relegation is swept away. The seven sages of the bamboo forest wander in the green ocean of the bamboo forest, drinking and composing poems. In the turbid world, they emerge from the mud like green lotus without staining, and their hearts are at ease and peace. Tao Qian lived in seclusion in the countryside, feeling the green life and forgetting the intrigue in the officialdom in the morning. Since ancient times, how many hermits have lived a real green life under the green package, with honor and disgrace, and no struggle with the world. Green life has more attraction.

Now, people in modern life are constantly struggling for life, and it seems that there is no spirit of "getting out of the mud but not stained". If so, then return to the countryside and go to the countryside. Feel the simple and pure atmosphere, return to the countryside, feel the charm given by nature, and feel the simplicity of the rural people. To appreciate the physical and mental pleasure brought by the green environment, and to realize the precious wealth that green life gives us and future generations.

Under the background of global warming, the "low-carbon economy" based on low energy consumption and low pollution has become a global hot spot. Energy conservation and emission reduction is imperative, low-carbon development has gradually become the inevitable trend of social development, low-carbon life is not only an attitude, an obligation, but also a responsibility. Because mankind has only one common earth, it is our common responsibility and mission to choose a low-carbon and green lifestyle.
