Apparently, failed marriages and separations have now been included in the mix of potential contributors to global warming. Sounds strange doesn’t it? Well it does not really deal with the mental aspect of contribution but more on the logical things. Separate homes and rising demands in having to live in more than one house has become a multiplier effect. Imagine one solid home now divided. That equation would mean people having to live in separate houses to exist.
In the process it would mean separate bills and separate housing requirements to live comfortably. If only comfort was in the midst of it all, then perhaps that growing concern of global warming would not readily focus on one issue of this growing environmental concern.
Divorced couples use up more space in their respective homes, which amounts to 38 million more rooms worldwide not to mention the energy costs needed to light, heat and cool them, said the report.
In fact in the US in 2005, divorced households used 73 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and 627 billion gallons of water that could have been saved had household size remained the same as that of married households.
