Positive Impact of Globalization on the Environment



The relationship between people and the environment is very delicate and extremely important. As the world becomes more globalized more and more people are beginning to abuse the environment and fall out of touch with their relationship with it. However, some companies who produce tons of greenhouse gasses each month are beginning to use alternative energy sources that are gentler and less harmful to the environment. These energy sources, such as wind and solar power, have fewer environmental impacts. They also promote sustainability because they do not waste non- renewable resources. These companies are also looking to replace the fossil fuels that power Canada and most of the world with cleaner, more sustainable energy sources. Although, these alternatives are slow to develop in our extremely globalized world. However, many wind farms in Alberta have shown potential as a clean alternative energy source. A newly developed hydroelectric plant in Alberta has also shown its potential as a clean energy source. In the past, alternative energy sources such as solar power was exceptionally expensive, however, these prices are readily dropping, making alternative energy more affordable .These alternative energy sources contribute to the positive impact of globalization on the relationship between
occupants of the world and their environment.
