Letter to the Editor: Personal actions to fight climate change

Recently, while getting ready for school drop-off, I told my daughter that since she was now almost five years old getting dressed should not take her so long. If she knew better, she could have turned around and said a similar thing to me regarding my actions towards minimizing my contributions to climate change.

I have a lot of bad habits. I do not know why, but I had a hard time seeing them until recently. The catalyst for my personal realization was the recent protests by students inspired by Greta Thunberg. Please Google her name if you are unfamiliar. We humans are creatures of habit by nature, but we are also lucky enough to be gifted with the ability to adapt ourselves, to change.
