old Hug the Planet t shirt andnot feel too bad about it. The
first Earthdays observed fifty four years agoin nineteen seventy. Have things improved or
gotten worse since then? It dependswho you ask. And a poll,

(00:20):
seventy percent of Americans say the amountof pollution globally has increased, eleven percent
say it's stayed the same, eightpercent decreased the same question, sixty three
percent said global temperatures have increased,twenty percent say they've stayed the same in
three percent say they've decreased both.In questions gen Z's and Millennials, I'm
concerned about things getting worse, Boomerssay their pollution and global climates are getting

(00:43):
better, but many Americans are worriedwhat comes after them. Seventeen percent said
they've actually lost sleep worrying about theenvironment, and fifty four percent of them
primary concern that the planet won't belivable for their children or grandchildren. In
a different survey, sixty percent ofpeople said they make an effort to minimize
their pay use every day. Inthirty one percent say paper over use is
a major ecological problem. A newstudy suggests that hotels, too, could

(01:07):
save water by bringing artificial intelligence intotheir showers. The idea would be to
have a screen to provide guests withfeedback about their shower length and use.
An aspect could be a timer,encouraging people to beat the clock. Supposedly,
that would reduce the length of timesin showers by more than twenty five
percent. So how it environmentally conscious? Are you? Well? For some
people, it depends they give themselvesan eight out of ten when it comes

(01:30):

number eight. Are you environmentally conscious? All? We should at least try

takes a lot of water and resourcesto grow all those vegetables if you buy
or let them rot. Stop overusing napkins, Well, so do you

(02:38):
really need more than one to getthrough the meal. Well, it seems
that nobody uses cloth napkins anymore,so that would be more sustainable. They
say, to use reusable grocery bags. Stop telling the checkout person you forgot
them at home. Again, don'tpretend you really use those plastic bags.
