First, Science Editor Sharon Begley's discussion that even curbing CO2 emissions won't be enough to get us out of our mess. Begley describes other ways (carbon sequestration, for example) to make the air cleaner.
Secondly, the "How to Live a Greener Life" section, which includes knowning yourpersonal carbon footprint and these driving-specific tips:
- Buy a greener car by using EPA MPG rates and learning about tax credits.
- Use public transportation more often: "You can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by about 1,590 pounds per year if you leave the car home two days a week and take public transportation instead."
- Use carbon offsetting to clean up after your car.
