If Trump Won't Help The Environment, You Still Can!

"We can all do our part for a healthier planet, even if we just start with planting a single seed."

President Donald “Covfefe” Trump has decided to have the United States exit the Paris climate treaty pertaining to carbon emissions. The goals of the Paris Accord involve lowering emissions to halt or reverse rising temperatures around the world. Climate scientists — the only people worth listening to about climate science, if you ask me — agree that climate change is real, it’s driven by humans, and reducing carbon emissions is a good idea.

So why does Trump think the U.S. should back out of the treaty? Damned if I know. Dude is whack. (OK, there’s more to it than just whackness. Trump thinks it’s a bad deal for America, since we’ll have to spend money on something other than him and his family. Read all about it here.)

Anyway, even though Trump has led us away from the rest of the developed world on climate progress, there are things we can all do as individuals to reduce our personal carbon footprints. Since every little bit helps, I’m pledging to try and reduce my carbon footprint by 2%, and here are some ways you can get in on the action too!

 

 

There are other ways to get greener in your everyday life, but I picked these as my top five because they’re reasonably affordable and not too complicated. We can all do our part for a healthier planet, even if we just start with planting a single seed. 

Also, vote next election. VOTE.
