Stop global warming

Updated on January 4, 2011

One way to save the world?

Global warming, as we all know, is a serious issue. Unfortunately, there is no simple solution. But it all starts with you. You are the one who must take action. Simple changes to your usual daily routine can make our lives better in years to come, and the lives of all those who will come after us. Set an example for your friends and colleagues by doing easy environmental friendly things, learn, and spread the word.

A few examples how small changes in your life can help prevent global warming

Use Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

Replace 3 frequently used light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs.

Inflate Your Tires

Check your car tires each month, and keep them adequately inflated.

Change Your Air Filter

Check your car's air filter monthly.

Fill the Dishwasher

Run your dishwasher only with a full load.

Use Recycled Paper

Make sure the paper you use is 100% post consumer recycled paper.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Move your heater thermostat down two degrees in winter and up two degrees in the summer.

Change the AC Filter

Clean or replace dirty air conditioner filters as recommended.

Take Shorter Showers

Showers account for 2/3 of all water heating costs.

Buy a Fuel Efficient Car

Getting a few extra miles per gallon makes a big difference.

Plant a Tree

Trees suck up carbon dioxide and make clean air for us to breathe.

Buy Organic Food

The chemicals used in modern agriculture pollute the water supply, and require energy to produce.

Get involved!

There are various organizations where you can get more involved and take some direct action, like WorldWildLife.org (http://www.worldwildlife.org/involved/). You can easily find out more on Wikipedia and Google.

Additionally, you can quite easily install solar panels or windmills in your home for ridiculously cheap prices. For a complete guide visit www.freepowerproject.com.

Just be sure to remember some of my tips and start putting them into practice!

      All of the other stuff saves money, and energy... I get that, but really the only suggestion that does really make sense, on the issue of "Global warming" (which I think is a sham) is to plant a tree. They laughed at the president of Poland when he said that he was going to start a reforestation project rather than a "Cap in trade" plan, yet that makes the most sense. Trees purify the atmosphere that we breath. The suck in the bad stuff and expell the good stuff. They keep the soil in place, and help to replenish soil, and they create oxygen. We need a reforestation project here in America. If the Arbor day foundation would get more people on board, and we could start a "Johny Appleseed Project" we could really help this country to "Clean Up."

      I don't want crap in the air that I breath, or crap in the water that I drink, but Global Warming hype is out of control. Driving a hybrid isn't going to cure the planet of all of it's ills.
