Individuals are responsible to an extent but society as a whole needs to shift in a more environmentally friendly direction which requires the mass cooperation and/or else governmental or corporate influences.

 @9H7N243 from Utah answered…6mos6MO

They are both important, but governmental and corporate-level changes make a more significant impact on the climate because of how many people it affects and potentially restricts from doing harmful things to the environment.

 @9H9ZGL5from Pennsylvania answered…6mos6MO

I think both have an effect on the environment, however large companies are the biggest offenders.

 @9H8PQBM from Iowa answered…6mos6MO

I feel like the environment is impacted by both people and the government more so the government and individual corporations then people

 @9HCGWSL from Kansas answered…6mos6MO

It is equally important for individuals, corporate/businesses, and government to maintain the environment, whether that be from individual actions, or regulations.

 @9H8WMN9 from Texas answered…6mos6MO

Individuals need to be more aware of their enviorment but another way to do this is the government taking action

 @9H9MGVT from North Carolina answered…6mos6MO

Individual could make an impact, but definitely not a significant one. Corporations create a lot of carbon emission, even more than any of us. They should be held accountable.

 @9HBNLWPRepublican from Tennessee answered…6mos6MO

I believe that individual actions and government actions go hand in hand. Individual actions are based on what the government does and government actions are based on what individuals do.

 @9HCMHRQ from Utah answered…6mos6MO

Although individual actions can still make an impact, governmental and corporate action can make a much bigger impact, and can be integral for environmental preservation.


I think that any action will help. I think if the people and governemnt came together it would be better altogether. It is both peoples earth we are talking about.


I think that people can have a significant impact on the environment but changes made on a government level will most likely impact more.

 @9HBW6GXfrom Virgin Islands answered…6mos6MO

Corporations produce a lot more waste than any individiual, most of the climate and environmental issues are directly caused by these corporations. Even if all civilians were to zero out their emissions, the impact that it would have on the environment would be minimal due to the grand majority of pollution in the world being from companies, especially oil companies.

 @9HCD4BX from Wisconsin answered…6mos6MO

 @9HDSLST from California answered…6mos6MO

While individuals should be mindful of their output, it is nowhere near the same amount that large companies produce. The problem lies at the corporate level, not with us.

 @9H7YDW3 from Illinois answered…6mos6MO

I do believe that single actions that are all combined with each other do indeed have a vast effect on the climate, and corporations and the government should also change their ways to reduce these things.

 @9H83J4D from Florida answered…6mos6MO

I believe either of those. Every action that an individual takes is a step closer to destroying the environment, but more important changes should also be made at a governmental level.


It is more of a change at governmental or corporate because those are the bigger whales of the rise of pollution in comparison to a person.

 @9HCBP5G  from Indiana answered…6mos6MO

I mean yes. If you dump your kitchen grease into the creek behind your house that's not going to be great for the ecosystem. I think that we should be environmentally conscience and do things for the good of everyone but I don't think that the government can regulate that on a government or corporate level.

 @9HB55MX from Utah answered…6mos6MO

Way more important at a government and corporate level, very little happens one the individual level. Its similar to voting, one vote doesn't make a big difference, but a large amount does.


Yes I believe governments, corporations and individuals have impact, the honest and true reality is that the environment isn't going to significantly improve by these groups its going to improve by these groups funding the true engineers and innovators of the world that will make and find better solutions that will improve the environment.

 @9H9VP8Q from Ohio answered…6mos6MO

I think changes need happen on both levels, but government/corporate level is more substantial.


I think individual actions can help slightly in that specific area, but not nearly enough to show positive change. Mass change made by associations and groups will by far help way more.

 @9HBVFFT from Florida answered…6mos6MO

Yes I do think that individual actions can be impactful but I also think the government and corporations should make changes too.

 @9HCLSJPDemocrat from Indiana answered…6mos6MO

Both need to happen if there’s going to be change. If everyone pitched in, including the government, then a lot of our issues with the climate will at least be easier to fix.

 @9HCM65K from Indiana answered…6mos6MO

It it more important foe changes to be made at a government or corporate level because that is where the biggest change could take place.

 @9H82WR4 from Texas answered…6mos6MO

Yes, everyone can make a change, however people often need a leader as most people are followers, if people learn to be leaders they can guide other people to make better choices.

 @9HB3Y62 from California answered…6mos6MO

I would say both because with Individual Actions it can have a significant impact on the environment, but It will be so much more important for changes to be made at a governmental or corporate level.


Individuals are responsible to an extent but society as a whole needs to shift in a more environmentally friendly direction which requires the mass cooperation and/or else governmental or corporate influences.


Both are important, but at the moment changes need to be made at government or corporate levels because they will make the fastest impact, after the climate crisis has calmed down people can begin to focus more on individual actions.


I think that if we do recycle and use those recyclables it could greatly impact the environment in a positive way. But everyone must take a stand and work together to accomplish this. We do not need all these laws and rules about emissions and electric cars and wind power and stuff. Most of the stuff our government is doing to "protect our environment" is doing more damage than it is helping.

 @9HBQCXLRepublican from North Carolina answered…6mos6MO

I believe that corporations do more damage than individuals in the environment. But both side cause damage either way.

 @9H9SNNN from Georgia answered…6mos6MO

People, corporations, and the government can all have impacts, however it is best to regulate impacts at the corporate and governmental levels.

 @9HBJXVL from Texas answered…6mos6MO

 @9H9VDNB from Texas answered…6mos6MO

its important for each individual to do their part in this, but it is far more important for the government/corporate level to make environmental changes. It needs to be a joint effort from everyone.

 @9H9RTRP from Tennessee answered…6mos6MO

If enough people come together and do the same thing it can have a significant impact.

 @9HCKV7F  from Nevada answered…6mos6MO

I do believe that individual acts such as recycling or composting food has an impact on the environment as does throwing trash on the ground and not recycling. But it is also important for the government and corporate levels of government to also be making changes to less impact the environment as well.

 @9H7JYFLRepublican from North Carolina answered…6mos6MO

Individual actions, while important, are not as impactful as the big corporate companies' output. While they should be pressured to change, I do not believe the government should be involved with it.

 @9H9T24M from New York answered…6mos6MO

It is way more important for change to happen on corporate levels and government levels. What the individual does will have an impact, but not a significant one. What really matters is corporations and governments seeking environmental solutions to problems.

 @9HBWZHS from Missouri answered…6mos6MO

I think both are accurate responses. While individual actions will definitely help, government actions can further progress our nation as well. By initiating multiple actions, we can all step towards a better future.

 @9HBHNSD from Kentucky answered…6mos6MO

I think individual action can make a difference but it also needs to be done on a govermental level aswell

 @9HBBGBZfrom Maine answered…6mos6MO

Corporate level changes and changes in the practices of the population as a whole, would create a significant impact. Also promoting environmentalism in developing countries would also be beneficial.

 @9H9RJWS from Illinois answered…6mos6MO

While individuals should take steps to decrease their impact of the environment it should also be the responsibility of big corporations and goverment to decrease their footprint as they have the greater impact.

 @9HCGWSL from Kansas answered…6mos6MO

I think that the responsibility of maintaining the environment lies upon everyone including government and businesses

 @9HCBB2QPeace and Freedom from Florida answered…6mos6MO

I believe that individuals have an impact on the environment, people who use transportation using cars and gas, it hurts the environment because of the pollution. But there should be some changes at a corporate level for people to take it more seriously.

 @9H9VSXN from Florida answered…6mos6MO

I think that individual actions can be made but it is more efficient for the government to get involved. Protecting the environment is one of the most important issues we need to address.
