10% Challenge

The 10% challenge is a goal set by environmentalists and politicians who have researched pollution and the depletion of the ozone, and become disturbed by the excess displayed by the human race. The goal is to cut all emissions by ten percent, and continue to decrease emissions so that by 2010, global emissions are ten percent less than those in 1997. This is an optimistic goal, because as simple as it sounds it is much more difficult to put into effect than it seems. This is because all of the various ways to decrease emissions require the person undertaking this task to alter their lifestyle significantly, something that an organized adult fears more than almost anything else. Yet this should not deter anyone from facing this challenge, for the problem can be conquered if you look at the goals separately. If your family has been motivated to sign on to the ten percent challenge, but you do not know the different steps, or if you would like more information on the different aspects of this goal, the website is an outstanding source that offers detailed information and local events related to the subject. Visit this website if you need to obtain information on the steps included in signing on to the challenge, or if you are curious about the groups involved in setting it up. They also give an account of the effects that pollution has had on the world, and what could happen if nothing is done about it.
