Over consumption is a significant contributor to global warming and climate change and this consumption is the major cause of Australia’s large footprint. The other cause is our reliance on fossil fuels for everything ranging from the electricity in our homes to the petrol in our cars. Our way of life in Australia is threatening the future of our planet.
What can we do about this?We all have a part to play, as we all contribute to our ecological footprint and to global warming. This is where we can work together. At WWF we work to conserve and protect the environment – through on-ground conservation projects and by working with government and business to make the big changes we need to become a sustainable country and economy.
