In these chilly January days, most of us have the good fortune of a heating system. Keeping warm in Canada's winter means burning fuel that releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere (oil, gas, coal and wood). Carbon dioxide is a significant contributor to global warming. Humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by 48% since the Industrial Revolution began.* So, what can we do to reduce these emissions while staying warm?
Also of note is an upcoming webinar on Feb. 2 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. called Taking Action on Climate Change: An Interfaith Conversation. Register at Faith & the Common Good to receive the Zoom link.
