Carbon Footprint and Climate Change
Directions: Use this template to complete the Week 9 assignment.
Your name:
1. Examine the factors that influence the feasibility of proposed solutions to
reducing your carbon footprint. What are suggested actions you can take to reduce
your carbon footprint based on your results? Does the cost of going green limit your
ability to reduce your carbon footprint?
[Insert your answer here]
2. Compare and contrast existing solutions, conclusions, or approaches to reducing
your carbon footprint. Locate the “free” options and see how simple changes can
reduce your carbon footprint. Locate the “$” options and see how these approaches can
reduce your carbon footprint. In comparing the “free” and “$” options, which do you see
as most beneficial and why? Are any of the “$” options feasible?

3. Examine the factors that influence the feasibility of proposed scenarios for
reducing global climate change. We can start saving the energy from our home itself,
and later can implement these things on a much wider scale at the society level, then at
the city level, then district level, and finally at the country level and global level. Consider
how your individual changes can impact the global climate change efforts.

4. Summarize the most effective solution to global climate change. Use the resources
provided in your course text, websites, and/or articles to help summarize the most
effective solutions.
