Conditions of Use
Can people do something now to fix the global warming part of climate change? Yes we can, get your families to use the car less ride a bike or get a Preus. If you do use your car don't speed on the highway the exhaust pollutes the air, and try to stay away from those gas-guzzling airplanes.If you can, buy your food from local farm shops and try and avoid imported goods. Trucks and planes bringing in food and stuff from other countries, or from far away parts of your own country, use large amounts of fuel.Turn the heating down in winter. If you're cold, wear more clothes! Turn the air conditioning down in summer or use a fan. When it's warm, dress cool. When it's cool, dress warm.Turn things off! Leaving lights, heating, air conditioning, computers, TVs and stuff on when you don't need them wastes a lot of energy. Turning them off saves money too! Get a wood stove. Learn to cook! Home cooking is not only fun, it means you don't have to drive to a takeaway or fast food restaurant. Results? Less pollution. If you make a garden, you can grow a lot of your own food. And composting your waste food means it doesn't have to be trucked away to a landfill waste dump where it will cause more pollution including methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Recycle everything you can, if you don't buy so much stuff in the first place, then you don't need to reuse or recycle it. See if you can get your parents and friends interested in free solar wind that's energy from the sun and wind. You can get much of your hot water and heating from the sun and even generate electricity. If you live in a windy place, a wind turbine, aka windmill really is a serious option.
Should we do something now to fix global warming? Why or why not? Yes we should, because if we don't the problems could be huge, because of the crazy pace of our daily life. Global warming is a slow-moving problem. But that doesn't mean you should wait and see what happens. If we wait, we may be creating an big problem, an unstoppable climatic shift that could have horrible impacts in the years to come.
