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

Inflate Your Tires

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

Change Your Air Filter

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

      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.
