What is the difference between mitigation and adaption technologies?de
Adaption technologies help people adapt to the changes in weather, like rainfall or droughts.de
Can you give an example?de
Sure. Drip irrigation is a good example. Farmers adapt to having less rainfall and only drip water directly on the plant.de
And what about mitigation technologies?de
They are trying to limit or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases to mitigate climate change.de
That makes sense. Then solar panels would be a mitigation technology?de
Yes, but also better insulation in homes or cooking stoves that use less energy.de
I guess we will really need those technologies in the future, right?de
If the climate continues to change this fast, we will definitely need to adapt.de
I'm considering investing in solar panels to save money on my utility bill.de
And while you're saving money, your also mitigating climate change. You should do it!de
