The routine decisions that shape our days — what to have for dinner, where to shop, how to get to work — may seem small, but collectively they have a big effect on global warming. Americans’ per capita emissions of heat-trapping gases is 21 tons—four times the global average and twice that of other countries with a similar standard of living to our own, such as France and Japan. That means we can all make choices that will greatly reduce our global warming impact.
Here are the Top Things you can do to Help Tackle Global Warming:
1. The car you drive: the most important personal climate decision.
2. Make your house more air tight.
3. Buy and USE a programmable thermostat.
