From President Joe Biden’s Administration platform, to organizations such as B Corporation, to global enterprises; many have focused their attention on the Climate Crisis and Clean Energy.
Studies have already proven that Urban areas account for more than 70% of CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels.
The key to stopping or slowing global warming may lie with cities—particularly large and wealthy ones. That was the major finding of an effort to map the carbon footprint of 13,000 cities—one of the first times researchers analyzed so many areas with a consistent methodology.
“A number of large and or affluent cities drive a significant share of national total emissions,” said an environmental economist at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
“Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are considered one of the main causes of Earth’s climate change. In addition, carbon contributes to respiratory disease from smog and air pollution. Extreme weather, food supply disruptions, and increased wildfires are other effects of climate change caused by greenhouse gases. People who suffer from asthma, such as myself, CO2 creates major challenges to breathing,” says Christopher Thomas, Chairman, VirtMe Technology.
“V irtMe Technology was initially created to be a solution to the growing challenges of meetings coming to a halt, social connectivity and engagement due social distancing to slow the spread of the global pandemic. However, with continuous research, development and creative design on how the platform would operate, we also discovered how the platform can also be a solution to the global clean energy challenge,” states Christopher Thomas.
Christopher Thomas adds, “VirtMe Technology had an interesting beginning. It was one of those ‘That’s a good idea for someone’ thoughts. Then it was inspired to me that this is a mission for you Christopher. I then asked ‘Why me … I’m a marketing strategist not a coder or tech guy’. At that point, I literally almost had to shake myself as I responded, ‘Why not me’.
Following that, the seed was planted and we took off.”
“We are committed to providing a leading solution that improves the efficiency of meeting virtually, reduce anxiety limited to no social connectivity and do our part to help solve the clean energy crisis,” said Christopher.
