Is it possible? Can a young professional on a tight budget make an environmental impact on the planet?
Although the title suggests a forum geared towards young professionals an students, it is an educational opportunity for citizens from every walk of life.
Global warming is no longer a theory, it is an accepted fact. We are all very aware of the dire state of the environment. Gas prices are at a record high and there appears to be no relief in sight.
Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with the buzz words "green", "local", "organic", "sustainable" and so on and so forth. But what do they mean? When we buy products with these labels, are we actually having a positive impact on the environment? Or are they just a waste of money?
We are in an energy crisis. But what does that mean? Can one person really help, or hurt for that matter?
Does the carbon footprint of one person really affect the planet? I am not an oil company. I am not producing millions of tons of waste a day. How much impact do my behaviors really have ... and does changing them really make a difference on the future of the planet?
