Carbon Footprint Continued
Three Ways to Reduce my Carbon Footprint
- unplug electronics when not in use
- replace more incandescent lights with fluorescent lights
- reduce energy use for hot water
Short and Long Term Effects of these Reductions
Short term effects on me would be that it could cost money. Fluorescent light bulbs can be costly at first, but they can save you money in the long run.
All of these effects would help the environment by reducing carbon emissions.
The fact that surprised me the most about climate change was that global warming can actually help plants grow, for a short time. Then it kills them. It can also cause many species of animals to go extinct.
