Animation transforms to illustrate how climate change occurs.
VO So is the rest of the world. Climate change due to greenhouse gases is threatening how we live and even our survival. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere trap and hold heat at the Earth’s surface.
The animation coincides with the environmental consequences.
VO For our city that means higher temperatures, flooding, drought, and risk of wildfire. And we are taking it very seriously.
The animation creates visual examples of what the city is doing to help. Each fact comes with its own animation showing action and numbers.
VO The Austin City Council has set the long-term goal of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
We see the needle on an animated electric meter decreasing.
VO The city is working to save 900 megawatts of peak electricity demand by 2025 through efficiency and conservation programs.
We see the sun come up over a wind turbine.
VO Renewable power sources like solar and wind will provide 55 percent of our energy by 2025.
We see a few Austinites riding in bike lanes, walking, and riding buses.
VO We’re implementing first- and last-mile transit connections by adding and improving bike lanes, implementing new bikeshare stations, building and improving sidewalks, and providing circulator buses.
We see several people in a car commuting. Each is sipping a cup of coffee.
VO By partnering with the business community, we’re encouraging alternative transportation options to reduce single passenger vehicle commutes.
We see a landfill mound. Trash disappears and several sunflowers pop up in its place.
VO With the latest recovery systems, more than 90 percent of the materials generated in our community could be reused, recycled, or composted instead of buried in landfills.
The animation flies across the city and ends up in a neighborhood at someone’s house. A family stands in front.
VO But still, it’s going to take help from you. For instance:
We see a family turning off lights, a wall being insulated, and the family dog putting his dog bowl in the dishwasher.
VO When you turn off lights, insulate your walls, or just make sure your dishwasher is full when you run it, you could reduce your carbon footprint by one ton per year—and save on your electric bill.
We see people biking to work. A bus passes the cyclist, and people on the bus wave.
VO Walk, bike, or ride the bus or train just one day a week. More than a third of Austin greenhouse gases come from cars and trucks. And riding the bus will eliminate the stress of sitting in traffic.
We see the kids filling a recycling bin.
VO Recycling and composting more than half of what you throw out reduces landfill methane emissions. And downsizing your trash bin saves you money.
We see a mom at a local farmer’s market checking out the vegetables.
VO Buy local. Using fewer products that have to be shipped to Austin reduces the emissions required not only to transport them, but also to produce them.
The animation moves to a website URL on a computer screen.
VO For simple ways you can help now, go to: austintexas.gov/climate
The animation returns to Austin. We see the “I LOVE YOU SO MUCH” sign with people in front of it taking pictures. The camera rises and we see the sun shining and the sky is blue.
VO Let’s do our part to stop climate change in the world we live in by starting with the city we love.
