The mercury levels may be dropping, but this summer has already been a scorcher- literally. With wildfires like the Carrr Fire ( 178,752 acres) and the Mendocino Complex Fire ( 305,489 acres- largest in CA history) in just one summer, there is a reason behind this alarming trend. The most compelling reason for an increase in temperatures is an increase in greenhouse gases, most notably CO2. How can you make a positive impact in reducing CO2 emissions? Carpool to school or work, sign up for Zipcar and Zimride, try ofo, or even give plain old walking a chance. Small changes make a big impact. Comment below what you do to help reduce CO2 emissions. #SustainableState #GlobalWarming #SustainabilityStartsHere
