2 Low-carbon Life Starts with Me Introduction The climate change is currently one of the most severe challenges for the international society, which has evoked serious concern in all countries for its impact on human society. In recent years, various extreme climate phenomena led by the global climate change have frequently occurred all around the world. Before the irreversible disaster of global warming arrives, we can do nothing but to develop the low-carbon economy and advocate the low- carbon life to effectively respond to the climate change; and we can only realize the economic and social sustainable development by low-carbon development, reduction of carbon use and adaptation to the climate change Tiens Group hopes to improve the awareness and competence on energy conservation and emission reduction of stable consumer groups of TIENS including more than 20 million households based on the publicity and propaganda of the scientific knowledge on the low- carbon life, in order to save resources, reduce pollution, protect the favorable living environment of the earth and initiate the high-quality, green and happy life.

3 Low Carbon and Climate Change However, not all gases that constitute the atmosphere are equipped with this function but only six among them, including the carbon dioxide, methane, ozone, nitrogen monoxide, freon and water vapor, which are collectively called Greenhouse Gases. Since the start of industrial civilization, large amount of chemical fuels such as coal, petroleum and natural gas have been utilized in the production and living of people, thus a large number of greenhouse gases including the carbon dioxide have been exhausted. The increasing proportion of greenhouse gases lead to the continuous global warming. The background of the low-carbon concept is the global warming severely challenging the survival and development of human beings. Low-carbon refers to lower emission of greenhouse gases (mainly the carbon dioxide). The low-carbon economy indicates the economy based on low energy consumption, low pollution and low emission, which is a major progress after the agricultural economy and industrial economy. It covers nearly all fields, including the low-carbon life, low- carbon society, low-carbon city, low-carbon consumption, low- carbon travel, low-carbon culture and low-carbon household. According to the research report by International Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the average surface temperature has increased by in the past 130 years, bringing about snowstorm, flood, lightning strike, drought and hurricane. The global warming also results in the glacial collapse and ablation, sea-level rise, lower crop yield and species extinction etc. Why does the earth, the pet of the universe, catch a fever? The atmospheric layer protects the surface of the earth we are living in. The average surface temperature might be about – 18 without the layer, where we should always live in the cold winter. As a result of the atmospheric layer, the short-wave radiation from the sun can directly reach the surface from the layer so that all creatures on the earth can enjoy the warm sunshine. Meanwhile, the long-wave radiation of the surface scattering can warm the atmosphere and avoid the temperature loss. Its insulating effect is similar to the greenhouse planting flowers, while the atmosphere of the earth can be compared to the glass of the greenhouse, realizing the warming effect by permeation of short-wave radiation and absorption of long- wave radiation. This is the principle for the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. Zane Low-carbon Life Starts with Me
