How can we help alleviate the onset of climate change?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25799 points ) May 12th, 2014

Two respected scientific journals will publish evidence that the West Antarctic ice sheet is in irreversible collapse. (Aricle) This event was predicted in 1978 by glaciologist Dr. John. H. Mercer.

The expected sea level rise in this century will displace 3,700,000 people in the US alone. The total displaced in coastal regions will be much higher worldwide.

Sea level rise is but one effect of climate change. Drought and more severe storms are also expected and are already occurring. The planet’s climate is in flux.

The Earth will most certainly survive. Human society may not.

What are some steps we individuals can take now to help alleviate the crisis?
