How Can We Help Save the Environment?

Scroll to explore this learning path.
Playlist Description

In the throes of extreme weather patterns, are there any steps mankind can take to save the environment? If you've been outside lately, perhaps you've noticed the sweltering heat. Or, depending on your location, you may have noticed plummeting temperatures. Or tsunamis. Or earthquakes. Scientific research points to the man-made phenomena of global warming as the culprits behind these extreme weather fluctuations. Significant increases in carbon emissions, widening vulnerability in the ozone layer and irreversible ice cap melting could mean pushing the limits of climate change into unknown—and terrifying—territory for future generations. According to researchers, carbon dioxide levels are at the highest level in 15 million years—unleashing a heat wave responsible for decimating polar ice caps that would be unrecognizable to the area's earliest inhabitants. Can any of this damage be undone? Or is it too late to save the planet?

Scientists are still unsure what the long-term effects of global warming will bring. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency suggests practices like switching to paperless bills, planting gardens, carpooling and utilizing reusable bags could help to reduce the deterioration of the environment. At the very least, it won't make anything worse. Check out this playlist to learn how to help save the planet—from ourselves.
