Take a virtual trip to the tundra with us through these favorite clips from last fall's polar bear migration, captured on the live Polar Bear Cam. And don't forget to make a pledge and/or share a photo in the Commit List and Gallery below!
Today I commit to:
Globally, 28% of greenhouse gas emissions come from transportation. Walking, biking, or using mass transit can have a major impact in stopping global warming.
In the U.S. alone, idling engines release about 58 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, with no transportation benefit. What’s more, idling is hard on your engine, reducing its life by about 20%.
Why waste gas and cause needless emissions? For every two minutes an average vehicle idles, it burns the amount of fuel needed to drive one mile.
Use our No Idling Challenge Community Action Toolkit for ideas and resources.
This by one of our Climate Alliance graduates provides inspiration and ideas.
Let world leaders know that you want meaningful action on climate change by sharing our Petition for Polar Bears—and then invite others to sign, too!
