Work Less to Slow Global Warming, Says Study

A new analysis suggests that a more 'European' schedule would reduce the effects of climate change. The article, Global Warming Can Be Slowed by Working Less by Jason Koebler, reviews a new study by the Center for Economic Policy and Research. A worldwide switch to a "more European" work schedule, which includes working fewer hours and more vacation time, could prevent as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, according to the analysis, which used a 2012 study that found shorter work hours could be associated with lower carbon emissions.
