Climate Change: What's Your Impact?

Inevitably, in going about our daily lives – commuting, sheltering our families, eating – each of us contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change.

Yet, there are many things each of us – as individuals – can do to reduce emissions. The choices we make in our homes, our travel, the food we eat, and what we buy and throw away can help ensure a stable climate for future generations.

Use The Nature Conservancy's online carbon footprint calculator to measure your – or your household's – climate impact. The calculator will estimate how many tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases your choices create each year.

Din ippruvajtha u kont veritier kemm stajt. Ghazilt Florida bhala stat ghax nahseb li hu l-eqreb lejn il-klima ta' malta.

Ir-rizultat tieghi hareg li l-familja tieghi titfa daqs 30% ta' l-emissjonijiet ta' familja ta' l-istess daqs Amerikana! Jigifieri huwa ovvju min ihammeg l-iktar fid-dinja.

U hassra li jekk ma jitlax xi hadd bhal Gore bhala president, m'hemmx cans li jinbidlu!
