The article discusses challenges to climate change prevention. The author observes that conflicting messages about ways to prevent climate change leave the public confused as to how to conserve energy or reduce emissions. The author also thinks that those who are renting are reluctant to equip their homes with green technology. Another obstacle he cites is low awareness of the public of emission offsetting and significant concepts related to environmental protection.
