By the year 2100, many scientists believe that the Earth's average temperature could rise by as much as 6 degrees Celsius (11 degrees Fahrenheit). In an compelling investigation, National Geographic leads a degree-by-degree journey to explore what each rising - and critical - degree could mean for the future of our people and planet.

Through powerful filmmaking and intimate profiles, this special illustrates how global warming has already affected the reefs of Australia, the ice fields of Greenland, and the Amazonian rain forest. With a sobering look at the effects of our world's insatiable appetite for energy, Six Degrees Could Change the World explains what's real, what's still controversial, and how existing technologies and remedies could help dial back the global thermometer.

SHED THREE TONS IN SEVEN STEPS

Let's lose some weight. Not a few pounds of body weight, although that's always nice, but hundreds even thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) that is emitted by the burning of fossil fuels to heat and cool our homes, run our appliances and electrical equipment, provide us water, and move our cars. CO2, scientists are sure, is a major contributor to global warming, and every American, putting out an average 22 TONS (48,000 pounds) of CO2 per year, shares in the responsibility to reverse the course and start losing weight! Fortunately, there are many ways to cut our personal CO2 output by the ton-load. Follow these seven steps to shed three tons of CO2 emissions this year:

  1. Replace double-glazed windows with triple-glazed "superwindows" - 2,000 lbs/yr
  2. Drive 20 miles less per week - 1,000 lbs/yr
  3. Replace your calories from red meat with fish, eggs, and poultry - 950 lbs/yr
  4. Insulate your water heater - 850 lbs/yr
  5. Dry half your clothes on drying rack - 720 lbs/yr
  6. Wash your clothes in cold water rather than hot - 504 lbs/yr
  7. Turn down your thermostat by 2 degrees in the winter - 240 lbs/yr

Total: 6,264 lbs or over 3 tons
