Blog Action Day - Climate Change

Have you read the book?

Seen the film?

Do you believe it?

Does it worry you?

Is there anything ordinary people can do?


How about this for a start?

"A computer that is used for four hours a day and turned off the rest of the time costs about $70 less a year than one that is left on all day and all night. It also reduces the machine's CO2 emissions by 83%. "

Or this?

"Turn off the lights when you leave a room and turn off electrical appliances at the mains. Standby can use between 30% and 70% of the energy the appliance uses when it is on."

We can all do that, can't we?

And there are loads of other things ordinary people can do to help combat climate change, I 've quoted from 100 Places To Remember Before They Disappear where you'll find a further 98 "examples of how you, your family, companies and politicians may solve or counteract the effect of climate problems."
