4. Spoilt for choice, what to do first?
Possum's head buzzed with all the things he could do to reduce his carbon emissions. He thought of little things like turning out lights through to big things like buying a new car or growing his own vegetables.

- Change to an energy efficient car
- Walk to the local shops instead of driving
- Look getting better heating
He filled pages and pages, then he went online and checked for advice offered by his local government, Becoming a ClimateClever Home is as Easy as 1-2-3.
He filled more pages then he began to slow down. Finally he stopped.
"There!" he thought, "That's a good morning of work. Time for tea."
