This can be done in one easy step. Put down the car keys and walk out the door. Walking or biking instead of driving is the answer. Seth Borenstein , an AP reporter, recently wrote an article “Fighting Fat and Climate Change” with data from physicians and climate scientists. He states that a scientist calculated if all Americans ages 10-74 walked 1/2 hour a day instead of traveling by car, they would cut the the annual U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide by 64 million tons and at the same time shed 3 billion pounds. This information needs to be given to city planners . Open areas with walking and bike paths would encourage citizens to put down the car keys and step out the door into a cleaner environment as well as help to curb the spiraling health costs of a sedentary overweight population.
