Climate change - what can I do to help?  What can we do collectively as a community?

We have prototyped a clear, interactive data visualisation which shows the effects consumer and investment choices will have on greenhouse gas emissions.

What happens if we ramp up electric car or public transport take-up?  What's the cost and benefit of installing solar panels?

The actions of one person are a drop in the bucket. What happens if we all make the effort to change? What are New Zealand's carbon emissions going to be in the future?
