Climate change is real, we are all responsible for it and we all must be part of the solution!
Since the Industrial Revolution started in the middle of the 19th century, carbon dioxide emissions in our atmosphere have increased steadily and dramatically from the burning of fossil fuels, namely coal, oil and gas, and to a lesser degree from methane and industrial gases.
This increase in CO2 from roughly 280 parts per million (ppm) prior to the Industrial Revolution to about 392 ppm today is having a dramatic impact on our climate, both warming our climate and altering our weather with more droughts and more very extreme weather events.
The cause of climate change is manmade.
And we must solve the problem by reducing our emissions by 50-85% globally by mid century.
SFJA is committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and has recently installed new outdoor LED Lighting donated by Global Tech Led, a local Florida manufacturer of LED Lighting : www.globaltechled.com.
Approximately 31,000 lbs of Carbon have been reduced at the Academy by changing the exterior lighting to LED. In order to further reduce it’s carbon footprint, SFJA plans on installing interior LED lighting, as well as Solar Power to reduce on-peak power demand of the grid.
