Climate change introduces warmer ocean temperatures which

alter coral chemistry and lead to bleaching events. This is killing the Great Barrier Reef. Everyone contributes to climate change to a degree, depending on their carbon emissions (also called greenhouse gas emissions) through daily activities. If you turn off the lights whenever you leave a room, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 0.15 pounds per hour.  Recycling just one aluminium can saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for 3 1/2 hours! Furthermore, a typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. Therefore, if you recycle and walk instead of driving you can help stop global warming by reducing your carbon emissions. Please take this pledge, so you can help save the Great Barrier Reef.
