The recent Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, was an opportunity for countries across the globe to connect and strategize on how the world can work together to reduce the impact and trajectory of climate change.
There is a need for a rapid phaseout of outdated and harmful energy sources and a transition to renewable energy sources and more energy conservation and efficiency. While most of the coverage on the Summit was focused on the pageantry of the event, there were key takeaways on what everyone (not just world leaders) can do to work towards these goals and slow climate change.
Limit Usage of Fossil Fuels
Coal, oil, and natural gas are the primary energy sources for most homes and businesses in the United States. These sources of energy are woven in the infrastructure of our country making them accessible, but extremely harmful to our environment.
You can make an active choice to limit your usage of fossil fuels by making small changes in your everyday life. Turning off lights, walking instead of driving to work, replacing outdated appliances with more energy efficient options, and using alternative energy sources can all reduce your carbon footprint and limit harmful energy consumption.
