For the second year in a row, PaySimple is proud to participate in Blog Action Day, an annual event that invites bloggers on all topics, from around the world, to unite by writing a post about one important global topic. The topic for Blog Action Day 2009 is Climate Change, the changing of long-term weather patterns. Although scientists are still unsure of the exact causes and implications of climate change, it is nonetheless an extremely important issue that we should all be aware of. We cannot deny that climate change is occurring and simultaneously posing significant threats to our world’s ecosystem and the overall health of humans. When contemplating what to focus this particular blog on, my thoughts drifted toward small businesses and the role entrepreneurs play in fighting climate change. (What can I say I work for a small business that provides a product for small businesses. It’s a natural topic for me.) I once read that 90% of the renewable energy sector is comprised of entrepreneurs creating progressive technologies to combat potential problems like climate change and global warming. This makes perfect sense, as entrepreneurs are constantly looking for the next big inefficiency or problem to alleviate. They confront these problems and drive innovation that will lead to the discovery of solutions to these problems. In doing this, entrepreneurs are not only living up to their risk taking nature, but are also stepping up to create a better, and in this case, greener world. And not to mention, the creation of these platforms brings jobs, which fuels the economy, which fuels more entrepreneurship, which fuels more platforms and more solutions you get the idea. It is safe to say that entrepreneurs are doing their part to fight climate change are you To see what you can do to help and make a difference, visit http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/wycd/index.html
