The video starts with a short discussion of the causes of climate change. Importantly, it discusses other greenhouses gases, or carbon dioxide equivalents, like methane. The majority of the video goes over how to calculate your carbon footprint and wide range of ways you can easily reduce it. For instance, consider limiting ‘food miles’ by buying local, eating less meat, vacationing closer to home, using public transportation, and changes you can make around the house to conserve heat in the winter.
