Recent data shows that the release of CO2 emissions is having a meaningfully disruptive impact on the climate of our planet. Although the totality of the consequences of climate change is still unknown, there are examples in regional ecosystems that raise serious environmental and economic concerns. Designers have an opportunity to make a positive contribution to the challenge of reducing emissions through research and innovation that helps affect the energy-consumption behavior of humans. Here, we discuss four domain-specific examplesdriving, aviation, home energy consumption, and personal computer usewhich help highlight opportunities in this area. What Does Climate Change Have…
