This past week, I talked to the ladies of Sauercrowded, a German-language DIY and sustainability podcast, about my experience going on a climate diet. Since our chat is in German, I thought I’d jot down the main points for those of you who don’t speak German. And if you do, head over to their website to hear the whole episode!
First: Where to go
In doing research for our chat, I found two more great climate calculators:
- The German Environment Agency’s carbon calculator (in German only)
- The free international carbon calculator from Carbon Footprint Ltd
- You get more “bang for your buck” in one-time actions, like changing your bank account (or default search engine or energy provider), than in everyday decisions you have to keep making.
- Individual change is only one piece of the puzzle. It’s also important to agitate for political change.
