Climate change is upon us.  Most things that we do and buy create pollution, either directly or indirectly, and carbon pollution contributes to climate change.  Carbon pollution increases the incidence of higher temperatures, and causes more severe storms, greater precipitation, and/or drought.  These changes threaten our planet’s food supply, its biodiversity, and ocean coastal areas.  The lives of many people and other living creatures are at risk.

 A new energy infrastructure, using renewable, sustainable, and much less carbon polluting sources of energy, such as solar, wind and geothermal energy is still years away. We need to CHANGE our lifestyles to REDUCE the use of energy and the carbon pollution we generate beginning right now.

So take the low impact challenge.  What could you give up or change in your life?  How about one or more of the following?
