Why is there a rain forest in the Pacific Northwest of the United States?

Personal Choices and Climate Change

Identify two ways that your choices and actions affect climate change and what they do. Remember, choices can affect it in a positive or negative way. For example, I grow many of my own vegetables so that less of my food has to be trucked in. This reduces the CO2 emitted through burning fossil fuels. (You cannot use this as one of your examples.)
