In British Columbia, there’s a little valley where the Squamish River snakes down past the cliffs of the Malamute, a popular hiking spot. The hills in all directions are, like much of BC, thickly forested with firs.

Consumption: The Cause and the Solution to Environmental Destruction

Between 60-80 per cent of the impacts on the planet come from household consumption. If we change our consumption habits, this will have a drastic effect on our environmental footprint as well. But is it realistic to expect that individual lifestyle changes alone will have the needed impact on reducing CO2 emissions?
