Is our town using- consuming- over 7 billion gallons of water every year, or less?  Your responses will help us find out. By taking part in this survey that can contribute to decreasing Secaucus carbon footprint.
 
Many people may not know, or fully understand, what exactly carbon footprint is. To simplify, a carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide, and other carbon compounds emitted into our atmosphere, due to the excessive burning of fossil fuels. A simple example of this is the choice between driving a non-electric vehicle somewhere close by, rather than walking, biking, running, etc. The carbon emissions released into the air when driving, contribute to your personal carbon footprint. The more fossil fuels we burn, the more carbon gets emitted into the atmosphere. These gases form a ring/barrier around the earth, and trap heat from the sun. This causes temperature increases in the overall heating of the Earth. However, there are many other things, besides for just electricity, that can contribute to our carbon footprint. For instance, beef comes from cows. Animal agriculture is responsible for 14.5% to 18% of the worlds greenhouse emissions, making it a significant contributor to climate change. Of these emissions 65% of them come from beef, now making it another continuing contributor to climate change. These are just some of the many examples of how we continue to increase our carbon footprint.

This survey is conducted to study the beef consumption of the residents of the town, to help us understand and decrease our carbon footprint. This short questionnaire asks questions about your average beef consumption over the course of a week. No information identifying you will be recorded, so your responses will be anonymous. Your responses will be analyzed among the other responses of the residents of this town. I am a twelve year old resident of this town, who is determined to positively contribute to our issues regarding the climate.
