Climate change is a consequence of a huge imbalance in our ecosystems. For the regular consumer, such as myself, the little changes that I make have very little effect. The key is many millions of people engaging in small environmentally-minded decisions such as turning off the lights whenever possible and consuming less time in front of screens and using that time for exercise or reading or just relaxing. In my own home, I have insisted on reducing plastic waste, minimising use of air conditioning and going to bed that little bit earlier. It's not just what I currently do that makes a difference, there's so much more I can do. Often when I see the volunteer organisations based around planting trees I think that I don't have the time, but looking at those that volunteer, it's clear that making time to plant a tree or two can make a huge difference when we become more focused on what it means for our future rather than trying to live for instantaneous results and pleasure that is provided by our unhealthy habits.
