Extreme Weather leads To Energy Efficency Action

By Rhyan Montgomery

A recent study in the UK shows that people are more willing to save energy to when their area is in risk of a flood. The study found that Britian has had many severe floods in the last ten years and there are more to come due to climate change. Awarness of the climate change could help citizens reduce the energy demand in the region. This study proves the first solid evidence that peoples experience with climate related events will promote higher awarness of the issue and suggests new ways for getting people involved with environmental issues. With extreme weather affecting the globe, citizens need to have energy efficency in their thoughts to possibly reduce the impact of climate change.
