The Environmental Protection Agency of the United States (US EPA) recently released a series of 30 sec and 1 minute public service videos on climate change. The videos discuss small changes people can make to their daily lives that have an impact on emissions. Citizens are encouraged to reduce the amount of energy they use to both cut their own utility costs and protect their health. The cumultive effect of these small changes to the economy and environment are stressed. The series was developed in support of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, released in June. In his plan, the President stressed the importance of reducing carbon pollution while simultaneously prepareing for the impacts of changes to the climate.
What do you think? Do you give thought to how your actions may impact the climate? What things do you do at work and home to minimize your carbon “footprint.”
