My biggest concern is the increasing concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, as it causes acidification of the oceans and global warming, leading to climate change and biodiversity loss. As humans, we contribute to this increase in CO2 concentration by driving cars, flying, using electricity, plastic packaging, etc. As far as transport is concerned, I go to work by train and I have decided to take my bike as much as possible. When cycling is not an option, I try to carpool. I do not buy electrical/electronic devices that I do not really consider necessary for me such as a TV, dishwasher, GPS, camera, etc. Currently, I try to buy as much as possible in bulk and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
I believe that flights is one of the main causes of CO2 emissions and that it is essential to tax kerosene in order to reduce them. I also think that people should be better informed about their impact on the environment in order to be more concerned. In addition, politicians must stop putting the interests of industrialists ahead of the environment.
