    Higher standards of living are very often dependent on moving our environmental costs elsewhere. What are some specific ways in which the environmental impacts of your own lifestyle might be shifted elsewhere?

    The degradation of the Everglades habitat is affecting our ecosystem and wiping out the biodiversity. As more and more species become extinct, there are more invasive species in  Florida. This is affecting farming, our economy, vegetation, etc. People are starting to be directly affected.

    Living in Miami, a city with poor public transportation, walking to places would be a convenient way to reaching a destination while lowering our carbon footprint.

    Do you have any personal connections to a farm or farmland? If so, what are they? What feelings are evoked for you when thinking about declining farmland?

    Growing up with two parents who grew up on a farm in Brazil and Chile, our depictions of a farm was not the same. Farming had changed drastically since my parents lived near one. Deforestation, animal cruelty, excessive methane gasses, harmful chemicals contaminating our drinking water... The way our food is produced, packaged and is disposed of is a large contributing factor of climate change.
