I'm going to be putting a significant percentage of my income aside going forward in order to combat climate change.
Let's say, as an order of magnitude estimate, between $250-$2500/mo.
I've already made a lot of changes to lower my personal impact and I'd like to go further. It strikes me that, for example, though I own an electric car, this is almost certainly not the most effective use of funds.
Possible ways include:
- supporting protests globally with funds
- buying carbon offsetting directly
- buying / funding research into carbon capture
- funding renewable energy in general etc
What does HN think? Opinions on specific businesses, charities, platforms, etc?
How can individuals use their earning power to make a difference?
