Iowa City had the great honor of hosting Greta Thunberg Friday. For those who are unaware of who Thunberg is, she is a quiet, Swedish teenager who has taken on the task of saving the world from climate change. It may seem a hefty task, but so far Thunberg has shown herself up to it. She could use a little help, though, from each and every one of us.
Your task for this fall: Do a self-assessment and find ways to cut down your carbon footprint.
WE and only WE can save our planet. There is no ‘Planet B.’
