Climate change
Water companies have to use energy to clean your sewage and treat your drinking water. In total the water
industry creates 1% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Therefore Severn Trent Water is constantly looking at
new ways to reduce our carbon emissions and improve the way we use energy. An example of this is that
we transform your sewage into ‘poo power’ and produce energy from water, wind and crops.
CO2 goes up into the atmosphere
and is creating an invisible
‘blanket’ around the Earth, which
is trapping the heat from the sun.
When you turn on the hot tap to have
a bath/shower, warm water comes out
of the tap or shower...
To heat the water, the boiler turns on.
The boiler needs energy to run...
The energy comes from the power
station and is produced through
burning oil, coal and natural gas,
which creates carbon dioxide (CO2). The trapped heat is warming
up the Earth and causing global
warming, which is leading to
climate change.
Climate change is also causing drier and
hotter summers, which in the long term will
mean less water available for us to use.

Climate change is creating worse weather
conditions and more severe storms, which
is causing serious flooding.

The warmer world is causing land ice
and glaciers to melt, leading to rising
sea levels and more areas flooding.
