7GA Personal Climate Action Center Action of the Week!
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
Did you hear the moos? Scientists successfully potty-trained cows, which can help alleviate some environmental issues that occur from cow urine. While this is helpful, it is important to note that cattle are still the number one agricultural source of greenhouse gases, each releasing around 220 pounds of methane each year!
In Week 2 we talked about going Meatless on Mondays, but if going meatless sounds daunting another way to approach this is to eat low on the food chain- think fruits, veggies, grains, and beans. Eating lower on the food chain requires less resources to grow the food and even less land to produce the food. This is land that could be used to grow more efficient food or could be turned into forestland, which absorbs and stores carbon dioxide.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect all living things seven
generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
