This week we’ll be looking at solutions in the Industry sector. While there’s more work to do to develop solutions in this sector, Project Drawdown highlights the need to improve materials, use waste, address refrigerants, and improve efficiency to reduce industry’s impact on climate change. You can watch my short (7-min) video overview of the week here (optional).
For this week’s assignment, please watch these videos, respond to the discussion questions, provide one peer response. (You may respond to the videos via Flipgrid or via this forum.)
a) If you’ve tried composting what has been your experience? If you haven’t, will you start composting? Why or why not?
