It’s been really warm this past month, which is unusual for February, especially in the UK. A lot of people are enjoying the sun and warmth, but others are worried the heatwave (at least by Winter standards) is a sign of global warming. I tend to agree with them - there’s been a lot in the news recently about global warming and the side effects of the human lifestyle.
For a long time, I thought that there was nothing I could do as an individual. I figured that it was in the hands of our world leaders, and their jurisdiction to make through signing deals and making pacts. This is certainly true, but I’ve discovered since that there are lots of things you can do as a singular human that can help cut your carbon footprint. Every big movement has started with the effort of a few individuals.
Even the tiniest changes can help. Everyone has to start somewhere and if we all try and make tiny changes and steps, it can help benefit our planet. We’re not past the point of no return and doing simple things and making a collective effort can make a world of difference (no pun intended - or maybe it is).
