Hi, my name is Kevin. I am a senior at Oakland High School and I was wondering, would growing our own greens help reduce the CO2 level and help slow down climate change?

Hello my name is April and i live in Oakland, California. I realized that my home is the thing that contributes the most to my carbon footprint. i didn’t realize it that much, but now I have. I know that at my house we use the television too much, even almost the whole day. We never try to turn it off, and aslo the lights. My brothers love playing with them and they intend to leave them on most of the day. But since I calculated my total footprint, I have helped my family by turning off the T.V. whenever is not needed. By calculating your total footprint, it teaches you or informs you on what to do to switch it around. Everyone should live a better and healthier life. And most of all we need to save the Earth.
Climate change is in fact, true. There just is no other explanation other than the supernatural to the change in climate. Humans have contributed so much to it. There was no escaping that future due to all of this new innovative technology. It all comes with a price and that price was this great climate change. It’s happening and it’s happening faster than we would expect it to happen.
Hello, my name is Eric and I am a high school student. We recently tested our carbon footprints and found out how much food consumption contributed to carbon footprint. My carbon footprint isn’t incredibly high, but I could lower it by purchasing locally grown food. However, it is difficult to convince my mom to do because of the high costs associated with locally produced food. My school does have a small vegetable garden that produces and sells food occassionally.
Hello, my name is Armando, i am a senior at oakland high school and i am in ESA (envirenmental science academy). we have looked at our carbon footprints and i am verry amazed on how much we pollute in our daily lives. everything we do basically is related somehow to our carbon footprint, wether its traveling or just driving to school, it all effects our carbon footprint and no matter how hard we try to use as less as possible, it is sadly an inevitable action in our lives.
I think us kids should get with our communities and see if we can mae a specific easy to get to recycling place for everybody. Then people could recycle things so much easier and you could send emails about it to the parents and the students. or make facebook messages about the place once it is made! It would reduce everyones Carbon footprint
Hi ! My name is Andra and I´m 16 years old.I live in Relleu (Alicante),a small village.My school is approximately 20-25 km distance of my house,so every day I need to use car or bus to go. My total footprint is 4610 kg of CO2 per year, compared to
an average of 6968 kg for Spain, and 3791 kg (= 8358 lb) worldwide.
·Transportation:2796 kg–1885 kg
·Home: 774 kg–1462 kg
·Food: 764 kg–2620 kg
·Purchases: 275 kg–1001 kg
I think my use of CO2 is good.But many people have a higher average,so we need to do something to reduce it.
