We can measure our personal CARBON FOOTPRINTS by calculating how much greenhouse gas our activities produce.
Every time we turn on a light, travel by car, eat a meal, switch on a TV, or use anything that requires energy,
we produce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that cause climate change.
The CHALLENGE involves understanding the causes of climate change and then envisioning and embodying effective solutions
so we, as a planet, can avoid the worst potential consequences.
Are YOU ready to take the Challenge?
