Climate Change

Three Things You Can Do

1. Calculate your household's emissions.

Go on-line to one of these sites. Better yet, try several and figure out why you get different results. Some include air travel, some have more detail, some look at dietary choices.

2. Reduce your emissions.

  • Then tackle your greatest emission sources. Always keep emissions in mind when purchasing major appliances or vehicles.

  • Do your on-line shopping through and the carbon content of your purchase will be offset automatically.

 3. Advocate for federal, state and local policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. See adjacent column for contacts.
