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