How Can Your State Make a Difference for the Planet?
The planet is in pain. It is clear that two dates are essential to keep in the top of your mind: 2030 and 2050. By 2050 we must have stopped emitting more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the planet can naturally absorb. To do this we must begin a significant reduction in the 2020s and reduce by 50% by 2030. So the next decade is key to mitigate the worst of the climate changes. This means now.
We have created this dashboard to have a central location to collect data about how each state performs against various factors that affect climate change. First, we’ve compiled six key stats on air quality, water quality, and waste so you can see your state’s starting point and areas of improvement. Check back often – we are always digging up new and interesting information to display. How does your state stack up? What can you do to help your state’s ranking?
