Climate & Sustainability

Extreme heat, extreme cold, extreme storms... no, it's not your imagination: Climate change is here, and it's going to get worse. But we are not pure, innocent victims. We're the ones who created this situation, and we can take steps to slow and even reverse climate change. The most effective action we can take three times a day is to eat a plant-based diet. A vegan diet has a much lower emissions price tag than a meat/dairy diet.

UnchainedTV's Climate Change category is packed with shows that empower you to make a difference. Watch Countdown to Year Zero to learn what we need to do to stop global warming. And, see how celebrities like Moby, Justina Adorno, and James Cromwell are fighting climate change. Learn how small changes in your diet and lifestyle can have a big impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and your carbon footprint.

Beyond diet, we can all reduce our consumption, avoid plastics, use recycled and compostable products, and steer clear of disposable items. Reducing air travel and driving more efficiently and less frequently also helps. Adopting a sustainable lifestyle is easier and more fun than you might think. Plus, you can save money by switching to reusable products like cloth towels instead of paper towels.

UnchainedTV is not just about education—it's a call to action. Our Climate Change category offers practical advice on how to live sustainably and fight global warming. Understand the science behind climate change, discover actionable solutions, and be inspired by real stories of those making a difference.
