As part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of climate change.
Climate change affects me personally because it pollutes the air I breathe and causes illnesses like asthma. I can reduce the amount of energy by traveling less, hence using less fuel. I can also reduce the amount of animal products I use and the amount of electricity I use. The greenhouse gases are affecting the Arctic and the animals that live there because it's melting the ice and releasing greenhouse gases into the air that were stored in the permafrost.
