    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Its mostly because of the affluent culture, meat is an expensive product and not everyone can afford it. Eating meat everyday can have an impact on our health. I know excessive consumption of red meat is linked with cardiovascular diseases and also other medical conditions like cholesterol, and uric acid.

    Why is taking action on climate change important to you? Why do you care?

    It's important to me because I know my actions directly have an impact on my surroundings. And I care because I don't want to just exist, I want to create a healthy and safe environment, for myself and coming generations.

    So far my challenge is going great! I am being forced to study and read about things that I didn't think of before. Hopefully with little contributions, I can make a difference.

    They contribute in promoting global warming. Many refrigerants damage the ozone layer.

    Living in Upstate NY, It's very rare that you get to go outside during winters for walks. I just took the time to enjoy the little things like the grass being finally visible as the snow is melting.
