Listen: Vanderbilt professors find that household efforts are key to climate change efforts

Vanderbilt professors Jonathan Gilligan and Michael Vandenbergh are among researchers who have identified 17 activities that individual households can do to significantly reduce overall carbon emissions. The steps are explained in the recently published article “Household actions can provide a behavioral wedge to rapidly reduce U.S. carbon emissions.” The paper also uses behavioral research to estimate the actual number of people who might choose to take these actions to reduce carbon emissions.
