Climate change in Latvia- an opportunity and a challenge?

Globally climate change is being created by industries like transportation, manufacturing and agriculture, therefore most of the changes for mitigating climate change must be made in these industries by promoting their development in a nature friendly way. But it is important to remember, that each of these industries produce goods for our own consumption, this means that it is also crucial to promote choices in favour of nature friendly lifestyle.
