The Power of Individual Choice: What Can Individuals Do to Combat Climate Change & How Much Difference Will it Make?
August 26 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The final presentation in a series of presentations on Climate & Sustainability by Sara Via, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland.
Because food, individual transportation and residential energy use cause at least 30% of US carbon emissions, individuals can make a difference when it comes to climate change! In this webinar, Dr. Via will discuss five ways to lower your carbon footprint by reducing residential energy use, covering the remaining power needs with renewables even if you don’t have a suitable roof, reducing miles traveled in your car and increasing miles per gallon, reducing food waste, and adopting a mostly plant-based diet. Many of these actions are free or low cost to implement and most will save you money.
Dr. Via was one of the speakers at our Climate Change and Your Food Supply talk last July. Read more.
