Saving our planet is easier than you think...
There are many things every person can do to conserve energy and reduce green house gases like Co2.
1. Support political candidates
that are serious about solving this global problem. As Americans, it is our heritage and our duty to provide leadership and innovation to help solve problems that affect the world community.
2. Change a Light bulb
.. better yet, Change them all!
3. Unplug anything
not being used.. like wall chargers (cell phone/PDA), electronics (DVD, stereo equipment). Turn off computers at night or when not used for long periods. For convenience, plug seldom used electronics into a common power strip to turn on and off with one switch.
4. Install a programmable thermostat
and keep it set on 78 degrees for cooling when home and program it to 82 when no one is home.
4. Recycle everything
you can... Contact your local waste company to order recycle bins for: glass, aluminum, paper. Recycle toner cartridges at work, donate or re-use old furniture or an old car.
5. Have an Energy Audit
done on your home and/or business and make the changes that are feasible.. start with the easy stuff. Many local power companies do these audits for free or you can hire a local certified energy auditor.. the money you save will be worth the effort.
6. Purchase alternative energy technologies
and support the the innovation and development of clean sources of energy.
7. Install a Solar Photovoltaic system
to power you home or business. Prices are continuing to drop rapidly and there are many Government tax incentives that will significantly reduce the cost.. and as energy costs continue to rise you will recover the investment much sooner than you think. After that, it's free, clean energy!
8. Install a Solar Water Heater
9. Purchase a Hybrid vehicle
or other highly fuel efficient ride!
10. Keep your tires properly inflated
.. this could save millions of barrels of oil.
