New Year's Resolution for Your Mayor: Cut Carbon Footprint
Our oversized carbon footprint in the United States is contributing to the global climate crisis. We're burning fossil fuels and bulldozing wild spaces, and the Earth can't keep up. We see this in increasingly destructive storms, shrinking habitat and crashes in wildlife populations.
Researchers analyzed cities around the world for their carbon footprints per capita. And the top 10 biggest emitters in the United States were New Orleans, Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Kansas City, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati and Tulsa.
Not happy about your city being on the list?
Act now to urge your mayor to commit to New Year's resolutions that would make it easier for people to reduce their footprints.
