The Carbon Diet
Cutting my carbon footprint by 75%,
one week at a time
The world just went on a crash diet.
Not to count carbs, but carbon.
The Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
But like so many diets, this one might not stick.
Australians are the great diet cheats.
We've got one of the biggest footprints but we've pledged a tiny cut.
If everyone follows our lead, the world will warm several degrees.
Forget about 1% or 5%. I'll cut back by 75%.
Ride a bike or drive a Tesla? Salad or steak?
I test a new experiment each week to see what works.
Don't wait for the future to fix our problems. What's possible this week?
I'd love to hear your news, views and carbon updates.
