There are numerous global issues with links to the environment — climate change, species extinction and invasion, pollution of the atmosphere, freshwater supplies, land, and oceans by chemicals, gases, sewage, and plastics, and food waste – to name just a few. Stresses created by these acts continue to intensify and are becoming more clearly apparent in our lives. While your initial response to these massive and complex global concerns may be a sense of powerlessness or futility, do not despair.
Describe in qualitative and quantitative terms the global problem, concern, or threat related to the local action you intend to pursue.
