Our Climate Action Plan (another CEEP) took a deep dive and uncovered some useful information. It included the carbon footprint of food imports, (a whopping 40%), and the footprint of the ferry. I think this was an important approach since our community is an island and we can isolate these variables. If we don’t learn what comes on to the island, and what is consumed here, how can we live responsibly? We discovered that the footprint of the ferries is 15% our our emissions; however, more islanders are concerned about service cuts and affordability than carbon footprint. Also, the problem with a deep dive is that it can become harder to focus and target one area for action. I think we are ready for some more of the “just do it” approach.
