Climate change has local consequences. It requires local action.
- Calculate your family's carbon footprint. You can use carbon calculators freely available from the EPA or the Nature Conservancy.
- Figure out which of your activities contribute most to global warming, and eliminate or reduce them.
- Consider projects that will cut your long-term carbon emissions, such as installing rooftop solar panels.
- Support the Citizens' Climate Lobby, which presses politicians to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
