Accelerated human activity since the 1950s have led to the current instability and damage to the world's ecological systems. Although significant technological progress has been made, mistakes have also been made. In the early twenty first century, we are experiencing the consequences of some of our mistakes in the form of global warming and climate change. It is now time to put right that which has gone wrong. The former U.S. Vice President, Al Gore, launched the Save Our Selves (SOS) campaign with 24-hour Live Earth concerts across seven continents on 7th July 2007 to raise public awareness and mobilise global action to address global warming and climate change. In 1993, Al Gore initiated and funded the program that has enabled the benefits of the internet to be available to everyone. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin, has pledged US$3 billion over 10 years to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. The aim of this book is to raise public awareness of the risks of not addressing global warming and climate change together with the potential solutions and the benefits of change. The objective is to motivate readers to implement solutions that will reduce reliance on fossil fuel energy sources - the main causes for global warming and climate change. By providing essential information on the alternative technologies available, the intention is to empower governments, academics, private organisations and individuals to develop alternative technologies and implement the necessary infrastructures needed to generate the ever increasing amounts of energy required by the ever expaning global population without conpounding the concerns related to greenhouse gases emissions. As more homes use these grid connected microgeneration technologies, the human benefits of generating and sharing electrical energy generated from renewable energy sources will be similar to the benefits experienced by sharing information over the internet.
