It’s the Small Things Carbon emissions have become a large problem, and a main contributor to global warming. With the ever-growing accumulation of carbon in the atmosphere, we now have a much warmer world. The climate change has many negative effects, such as; species extinction, extreme and violent weather, droughts and flooding, and decreased agriculture production. There are many small and easy ways to reduce harmful emissions in everyday life. So if individuals can limit their carbon “footprint”, we can work together to reduce global warming. An average American driver contributes about 11,500 pounds of emissions every year (Live Neutral). Carbon dioxide is produced when burning fossil fuels. Therefore when refueling at a gas station don’t top off your tank. Spilled gas evaporates quickly (especially on a warm sunny day) into the atmosphere. Make sure that your can is well maintained, something as simple as a congested air filter for the AC can increase your cars fuel consumption by nearly 10% (Live Neutral).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
