Is Your Carbon Footprint BS?

This week we tackle a sibling debate: Do your individual actions matter when it comes to climate change? Or is it all about big, systemic change? In this episode, we break down both sides of the argument. We lay out the actions that have the biggest impact on your carbon footprint – and then ask if there's a better way to think about our individual roles.

I don't want people consumed with shame and guilt when we should be thinking about how powerful we can be together.
Dr. Katharine Wilkinson
Infographic showing current emission sources (25% electricity; 24% food, agriculture and land use; 21% industry; 14% transportation; 6% buildings; 10% other) and the current sinks for carbon which are 24% land sinks and 17% coastal & ocean sinks. All percentages are approximations.
Drawdown is the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline. Project Drawdown provides a framework for getting us there – stopping sources, supporting sinks, and improving society.
