Changing your personal habits is a popular reaction to climate change issues but scientist aren’t so sure that our small lifestyle changes will be even close to enough to make a real difference.

There are a number of things that we can do to help lower our carbon footprint, many you’re probably already doing such as driving less and being conscious of what food you are eating. These actions are great on a really small scale and although they don’t hurt, they won’t turn the tides.
While we’re doing this, it’s really important to continue to push for large changes as it is these that will really turn the tide when it comes to climate change.
