THIS WEEK

Carbon Calculation 101
Mrs. Green talks with Shyla Raghav, Conservation International's Climate Change
Lead, Conservation International (CI). For 30 years Conservation International (CI)
has worked to protect nature for the benefits it provides to all of us: food, fresh
water, livelihoods and a stable climate. They know that people need nature to
survive and work relentlessly to build a healthier, more prosperous and productive
planet. They know that by protecting nature, we are saving ourselves. And they do
all this through science, policy and partnerships with countries, communities and
companies. Recently, CI launched a new carbon calculator - it's the first one on the
market that allows users to calculate their carbon footprint and gives them the
opportunity to directly offset that footprint. The calculator is the brainchild of
Shyla Raghav - CI's head of climate change - who wanted to help develop a tool that
put more power in consumers' hands. Shyla is one of the youngest females (and of the
few minority women) to lead global climate discussions at the UN and during the
Paris Agreement. With the U.S. pulling out of the Paris agreement and the
administration's clampdown on environmental protections, it's more important than
ever before that we are informed of what our footprint is and to understand the ways
to make a positive impact.
