- We're 12 years away from a climate catastrophe if we don't make significant changes.
- By 2050 there will be more plastic in oceans than fish.
- Global warming is a massive threat to our economy and quality of life.
The statistics and headlines are alarming, to say the least. Climate change is a massive problem that affects all of us, but is often an afterthought in this day and age of the 60-second news cycle.
My new series will seek to take a look at what is in our city and local communities to make a difference? What are our local and state leaders doing to address the issues? What changes can New Yorkers and people in the Tri-State area make in their every day lives that, collectively, could make a difference?
So far I've started to look at the Plastics Problem that is, literally, overwhelming our waters: http://www.fox5ny.com/news/mircro-plastics-water-nature-threat
Also, we stopped by New York City's first "Package Free" grocery store aimed at helping NYers produce less waste.
And, does composting really make a difference?
Much more to come! Including a close look at how recycling is becoming more difficult than ever, and a look at the "Green New Deal" new lawmakers are promising in 2019.
