"Climate change can be discouraging and depressing. After all, it’s a large-scale, planetary process — what can any of us do? In truth, we need systemic, societal change to truly tackle climate change. But that change has to start from somewhere. According to Imperial College London, one of the most important things you can do is talk to those in power and let them know that climate matters to you. Another indirect but potentially very impactful matter is using your money: invest your money responsibly, buy from sustainable companies, and avoid those that are contributing to the climate problem. Of course, individual action also matters. Eating less meat is a good place to start (as agriculture contributes to one third of our greenhouse gas emissions and red meat in particular is a big contributor to this). Cutting down on flying and personal car usage is also impactful, as is cutting down on unnecessary consumption and waste."
