When it comes to major issues that need to be tackled, climate change is at the top of the list. With pollution becoming worse every day, it’s essential to self-analyze and figure out how to make a personal commitment to slow climate change. Figuring out what this looks like for you will depend on your situation but try to at least start somewhere.

The fact that this question is still being asked is astounding. Climate change is very real and its realness is present virtually everywhere you go. The culprits? Humans. But more specifically, emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are to blame.

Basically, emissions from cars and other large machinery across the world add to this pollution. But even more than that, oil companies have dramatically affected the earth’s natural resources and the consequent oil that we use has greatly contributed to the climate change problem.

Figuring out how to make a positive contribution to saving the planet can look very different from person to person. Start by really analyzing your lifestyle to see where you could change your habits.

Simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference. For example, start riding your bike more—it will cut down on your carbon footprint. Or look into solar power for your home. Solar dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is proven to help slow climate change.

There are so many different things that you can do to get personally involved in combating climate change. For starters, begin by getting educated on different issues related to climate change and specifically focus on those issues that manifest themselves in your community. You may not have rapidly melting glaciers in your neighborhood, but maybe your neighborhood isn’t sufficiently set up to accommodate recycling.

Working on some of these issues can make a big difference. Working to improve your community by making it more energy efficient is truly one of the best ways you can get involved.Saving the planet won’t happen overnight. While better understanding the reality of climate change and then making lifestyle changes in your life will make a big difference in combating pollution, it’s not enough. It’s important to remember that the main culprits are bigger companies that release huge amounts of toxic emissions. Do your research on these companies and use your vote and your voice to combat their effects.
