Hey there and welcome to Life Noggin.
It can be pretty scary to think of all the dangers of climate change.
In the past, we’ve learned together why we should care
but today let’s find out how to be proactive about the situation.
One way to help against climate change is to drive less when you can.
Rather than using your own personal car, try to carpool or use public transportation.
If your destination is close enough, maybe even consider walking or riding a bike.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is a major contributor to climate change
and vehicles are a portion of the CO2 humanity produces.
事实上 据估计 汽车每行驶2英里就会排放2磅的二氧化碳 到大气中
In fact, it’s estimated that for every 2-mile car trip you take, 2 pounds of CO2 are put into the atmosphere.
Please thank all those kids riding skateboards
cuz they’re kind of saving the world
even though they won’t get off my lawn!
You can also help out by recycling and reusing things when you can.
Rather than throwing things away
see if you can find another use for them
or donate them to charity if the product is still good.
Recycling helps fight climate change because it takes less energy to make a product from
recycled products than starting from scratch.
Also consider buying things with less packaging in the first place
or items that use recyclable packaging.
This next one might be a little scary to everyone who has taken part in a war for the thermostat,
but I challenge you to try and let your homes be a little warmer in the summer and a little
colder in the winter, even if it’s just by a few degrees.
Moving your thermostat up 2 degrees in the summer and down 2 degrees in the winter could
eliminate an estimated 2,000 pounds of CO2 a year!
Your diet can also play a part in the climate change battle.
可以的话 尽量少吃点肉 因为畜牧加工产业会排放大量的温室气体
Consider eating less meat when you can, as the animal agriculture industries emit a large amount of greenhouse gases.
The livestock sector, which includes things like feed production and transport, is responsible
for around 14 percent of all the greenhouse gas emissions around the globe.
I’m not necessarily saying you need to go vegetarian or vegan, but maybe try things
like Meatless Mondays or pick a plant-based option for even just one meal when you could have had meat.
你所做的一点一滴都会有帮助 我也知道蔬菜沙拉并不讨人喜欢 但你可以做到的
Every little bit helps! I know that kale salad looks scary but you can do it!
It should be noted, however, that it might not be as simple as all plants are better
for the environment than all meats when taking everything into account such as the energy
required to produce the food.
Overall though, plant-based diets seem to be better for the fight against climate change
than meat-based ones.
Another thing you can do is inspire others to join in the fight against climate change.
This can be simply talking to your friends and family about the issues or organizing
groups and events in your local community.
You can even contact your government officials and urge them to take action and have policies
可以通向更健康 绿色未来 的政策和措施
that lead to a healthier, greener future.
I partnered up with An Inconvenient Sequel to bring you this video
because the stakes have never been higher when it comes to our saving our planet.
However, we are close to a real energy revolution.
You can take action and learn more by watching the film.
Send a message of truth to power and see An Inconvenient Truth in New York and Los Angeles
starting July 28th and nationwide August 4th.
So go forth and let’s try and make this world a better, more sustainable place together!
