Understanding Your Impacts!
Contributed by: green-la.com
The average American household consumes over 100,000 gallons of water and generates over 22 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
The United States is responsible for 21% of carbon dioxide emissions, yet we have less than 5% of the world's population. We can and must reduce our environmental impact and slow global warming if we hope to have a promising future.
Things to look out for:
(heating & hot water) Oil
(heating oil & transportation fuel) Electricity
(appliances, lighting & heating)
(indoor & outdoor)
Carbon Dioxide & Greenhouse Gas
(wastes from burning fuels)
(trash & recycling)
(pollution of rivers & oceans)
(indoor water-based waste)
