This is a sad photo, can you take a science photo that makes you happy?
Humans have adapted the world we live in to make it more comfortable for us to work and play and study. Electric lights enable us to work or read when it is dark outside. Air conditioning units mean we can work harder while sweating less when we live in warm countries.
This comes at a price, however. The production of electricity currently requires us to burn fossil fuels, and this is leading to irreversible climate change. When I see an empty room, with lights on and air conditioners running it makes me sad.
On 30th November the two-week Paris Climate Change Conference will begin. People all around the world are marching to encourage their governments to BE AMBITIOUS with solutions to slow down or stop climate change.
Science can help in developing clean forms of energy. Governments can help by working together to protect the future of our planet. We can all help by turning off lights and air conditioners when they are not being used.
