The city of North Vancouver plans to use climate change warning stickers to remind consumers about the impact of greenhouse gas emissions. Although most people are aware of the impact of climate change, few think about how their actions may be contributing to the situation. These stickers will serve as a reminder of how consumers can take small steps to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the proposal for the project, the city will install a series of three inch stickers on gas pump nozzles throughout the city. The stickers will remind consumers that burning fossil fuels ultimately contributes to climate change and that they should reconsider driving somewhere if possible. Instead of simply chastising residents for using their vehicles, the stickers are intended to give consumers tips on how they can become more fuel efficient.

Although the warning stickers have yet to be installed, North Vancouver is the first city to have voted in support of making the labels mandatory on all gas pumps.
