Now that we have discussed the many reasons for climate change, natural and
man-made, you might be thinking “What can we do about it?” or “Can we do
anything about it?”
Actually, there are many things we can do about it that will make a difference.
Let me name for you some Top 5 solutions.
1) Reduce electricity usage around the home.Switch to energyefficient light bulbs and appliances. Reduce your heat and air conditioning
bills by using less energy and making your home insulated to save on energy.
2) Drive less and drive smart. Less driving will release fewer emissions into or air. Trying walking more, we can all use more exercise. When you must drive make sure your car is running efficiently, for example, keeping your tires inflated can help with gas milage.
3) Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Try to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Recycle your paper, plastic, glass and aluminum cans. If you can recycle half of your waste, it is possible to save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually.
There is lots of good information found on how you can help stop Global Warming. Here are just a few of the sites I found that I feel provide some insight to the problem and what we all can do to make our world a better home for us all.
If you are really brave, here is a great site by National Geographic, that is providing a quiz that you can take to really learn how much you know about global warming.
