So what's the most important thing YOU do to slow down global warming?
1. Bought a hybrid
2. Put solar panels on my roof
3. Post on website forums
4. Contribute cash to global warming organizations
5. Stop buying Chinese products
6. Other?
Thanks.

.. there are a lot of simple things that we do to slow global warming.
.
1. We reduce emissions of greenhouse gases through efficiency in our home,
•use alternative fuels and energy sources.
•Stop burning down forests to create farmland,

2.•Use energy sources that do not produce large amounts of greenhouse gases.
•ride bikes to school or walk

•Reduce reuse and recycle

3.•All people can slow down global warming by cutting down on their electricity use, gas, and other things that produce carbon dioxide.

•Buy energy efficient bulbs
•Trees absorb carbon dioxide, so we plant trees.[Planting four is equivalent to taking 100,000 cars' CO2 out of the atmosphere for a year]
•drive energy efficient cars such as electric, hybrid, and flex-fuel cars.
•Drive less per week by using public transport, carpools, bicycles or walking.

•Eat less meat, especially "red" meat from cows and sheep.

It's a good thing we changed "Global Warming" to "Climate Change".

I think everyone is on board with these terms now.

==========

As things stand today, the U.S. has experienced the coldest six-month stretch since 1912 and if the country has a few more days with low temperatures, it may yet break that record.

Thus far, 77 percent of the country has been below normal temperatures since October 1. And the October thru March temperatures have been their coldest sine 1899.

On just one day in January, 49 record lows were set across the nation thanks to weather patterns pushed south by the polar vortex.
It will be months before the wide spread icepack on the Great Lakes melts, as well. Thus far this Winter the lakes are 88 percent iced over, far and above the average of 50 percent iced.

Fortunately, you are not to be credited for it because climate change is only one of the many effects caused by man-made global warming..

Lead by example!! Oh, that's right, you're a lemming who follows where he's led.
You could also do these:

1. Replace a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb
2. Don't let heat escape from your house over a long period
3. Cover your pots while cooking
4. Take a shower instead of a bath
5. Use less hot water
6. Insulate and weatherize your home
7. Be sure you're recycling at home
8. Recycle your organic waste
9. Choose products that come with little packaging and buy refills when you can
10. Reuse your shopping bag
11. Reduce waste
12. Plant a tree
13. Switch to green power
14. Buy fresh foods instead of frozen
15. Reduce the number of miles you drive by walking, biking, carpooling or taking mass transit wherever possible.
16. When it is time for a new car, choose a more fuel efficient vehicle
17. Fly less.
18. Protect and conserve forest worldwide
•By carpooling with people it saves multiple cars burning more fuel
•Turning off lights, tv, computer, radio etc will save electricity therefore save fossil fuels from being burnt
•Plant trees
•Recycling cans, bottles, plastic bags and newspaper
•Compost left over food and use on the garden
•Reuse house hold items that well... can be reused like water bottles, Chinese restaurant take away containers etc

By recycling you send less rubbish to landfill and you help save natural resources like trees, oil and elements such as aluminium for being lost forever.
If access to urban public transit were funded by an automotive fuel tax, and bus riders didn't have to pay a fare, that would cut carbon dioxide emissions considerably.
to fight climate change you can walk or ride a bike instead of using a car or bus and you can also stop cutting down trees
People can slow the range of Global Warming, by simply recycling our plastic items, reduce littering, and turning off lights when we are not using them (or any electricity-based thing).

Re-use, reduce, recycle.

Ride a bike and/or take the bus.
Walk to school or work or well, wherever possible and only drive when its a long journey!
One way is to don't use your car that much.

The Washington Post
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.
I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 90+ years ago.
(sensationalism in the media never changes...hahaha)
Yep, temperatures were rising and ice was melting in the Arctic in the 20s... just nowhere near as much as today.

Don' haff ta: I found 3 versatile 6 watt swivel LED lights that places light where I need it. Replaced 3 one hundred watt incandescent lights. In only 4000 hours of use, they saved 1100kilowatt-hrs of energy & $100.

Everyone I know has done the same. Only problem is their electrical bill is still higher than it was a year ago. Think we are being ripped off.

Of course not! The LED lights I have are more efficient. If "prof sneeritus raunchy fellow" knew anything that backs up his stated educational lies, he would understand the increased efficiencies I have mentioned. But, he doesn't.
