How to take this information and use it towards making personal efforts to reduce one's carbon footprint? These are my own thoughts on how I try to act...
1. Be conscious to choices we make- food, clothing, transportation, housing, energy use...
Through making better decisions in all these areas will reduce your overall personal contribution to carbon footprinting.
2. Get involved in your community- activism, politics, community development, education and enrichment. After all, this is the level we all operate in and live in- so we make it what we want it to be.
