Is There Anything I Can Do For Global Warming

July 12, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

What is global warming? Why is it so scary? Global Warming is the effect of toxic green house gases, such as burnt fossil fuels, becoming trapped in our atmosphere. The green house effect keeps water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, etc. in our lower atmosphere, regulating the temperature closer to the base of the atmosphere, and surface of earth. Now, fossil fuels among other gases we use, are being trapped in our atmosphere, and as a result of deforestation, it is not being cleaned out by nature at the same rate. As well as the gases nature would normally have cleaned out in the past.

Now I know, is there anything I can I do? The first step is, be frugal. We want to limit our usage of the the planets resources. Try to throw away as little as possible. Especially electricity! Take shorter showers, use compact florescent light bulbs. Weatherproof, and insulate your home.

Stop throwing things away. Using reusable items oppose to disposable. Natural items oppose to chemically made ones. Paper over plastic. Start a compost, and use that compost for all organic waste: eggshells, coffee grounds, etc. With that compost you can grow healthy vibrant plants.
Does growing plants help? Yes! growing plants native to your area helps the environment and air you breath, as well is limits water and energy usage. Try growing your own fruits and vegetables and save the cost of shipping those items to your local produce isle.

Reduce your fossil fuels. Use public transit, walk, switch to an ethanol or hybrid car. Inflate your tires, do what you can to increase your mileage. Lastly, if you have the money, consider buying solar panels, not only would this save money in the long run, but it may save your grandchildren, mother nature, and every animal you’ve ever went “aw” towards it’s existence.
