Throughout the course of this interview, I feel like the relationship between the scientific studies on climate and what kinds of tangible actions individuals and larger groups could take to affect climate change, was highlighted. I think Kammen recognizes that not everyone can interpret and understand the results of climate change studies, or may not even have the time to, and so he underscores the importance of scientific experts working in tandem with government officials to make the appropriate actions. Kammen also recognizes the small impact individuals may make on the climate, and notes that small daily changes such as modes of transportation and diet can allow us to impact the climate. To what extent do these actions have on the climate, and are they as effective when only some of the population is making an effort? I recently read that recycling centers in America are inefficient, due to the vast amount of waste that is sent to these facilities. It seems to me that these recycling centers are only beneficial when everyone uses them appropriately. Thus, I would like to know how important it is that our society make a unified effort in changing our environmental impact, as opposed to separate individual efforts?
