Things You Can Do to Stop Global Warming:

  1. USE COMPACT FLUORESCENT BULBS (CFLs) OVER INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS: Compact fluorescent bulbs last ten times longer and use nearly 66% less energy. CLF’s also decrease the release of greenhouse gas emissions as they burn at a lower temperature. You save up to 300 pounds of carbon dioxide in a year.

  2. INFLATE YOUR CAR TYRES: If you cannot walk or cycle to your destination, keep your tyres inflated at all times in your car. You can save 300 pounds of CO2 for every 10,000 miles you drive, which will help not only your wallet, but also the Earth.

  3. SELECT THE RIGHT SEAFOOD: If we continue to kill and eat seafood at the current rate, the entire world’s seafood will be exhausted by 2048. Hence, it is imperative that you buy and eat certain types of seafood and discourage harmful fishing practices and threatened species.

  4. RECYCLE AND USE RECYCLED PRODUCTS: Products made from recycled paper, glass, metal and plastic reduce CO2 emissions and use less energy to manufacture. Paper recycling saves trees and reduces climate change.

  5. PLANT TREES: Trees absorb CO2 from the air and use it as their energy source, producing oxygen for us to breathe. A tree shading a house can reduce the energy required to run the air conditioner. You can save up to 900 to 9000 pounds of CO2.

  6. CLEAN YOUR DIRTY AIR FILTER REGULARLY: Cleaning your dirty air filter regularly can save up to 350 pounds of carbon-dioxide in a year.

  7. COVER YOUR POTS WHILE COOKING: By doing this, you can save a lot of energy needed to prepare a dish. It would be ideal to use pressure cookers and steamers as they save around 70% of energy.

  8. TAKE SHORTER SHOWERS: Showers account 2/3rd of all water heating costs. To maximize energy saving, discourage power showers and use low-flow showerheads.

  9. BUY PRODUCTS WITH LESS PACKAGING AND REFILL AS AND WHEN YOU CAN: In this way you can save waste production and energy use and save up to 1000 pounds of CO2.

  10. GO SHOPPING WITH CLOTH BAGS: Carry cloth bags over plastic bags rather than accepting a disposable bag each time in a shop. Waste not only discharges CO2 and methane into the atmosphere but also pollutes air, groundwater and soil.

  11. SWITCH TO GREEN POWER: If possible, switch to energy generated from clean and renewable energy sorces such as wind and solar power and transport the products to you by 1/5th. Locate local farmers and buy products from them.

  12. KEEP YOUR CAR TUNED UP AND DO NOT WASTE FUEL: Keep your car maintained on a regular basis as this improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. Also while driving, use the right gears and do not abuse the gas pedal.

  13. BUY A HYBRID CAR WHEN POSSIBLE: By doing this, you can save up to 3000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year. You can also get up to 60 miles per gallon with a hybrid car.

  14. ENCOURAGE YOUR SCHOOL OR BUSINESS TO REDUCE EMISSIONS: You can stand up as a leader and extend your positive influence on climate change beyond your household and actively encourage others to take action.

  15. ENCOURAGE SHIFTING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY: It is imperative for nations to switch to renewable energy such as solar, wind and biomass. Many countries have already begun implementation but more and more countries should be encouraged to do so.

  16. PROTECT AND CONSERVE YOUR FORESTS AND ECOSYSTEMS: Forests and mangrove ecosystems play a vital role in climate change as they store carbon. When forests are burned down and mangroves are destroyed, carbon is released into the atmosphere. Deforestation now accounts for around 20% of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

  17. MAKE YOUR CITY COOL: Cities and states in the country should take necessary action to combat climate change by implementing innovative transportation and energy saving legislation.
