What You Can Do To Stop Global Warming
Check out the table that we made! This table shows what you can do to prevent global warming and how you can do it.
|The Problem||What You Can Do To Help||How You Can Do It|
|We are wasting Carbon Dioxide.
By driving a Hybrid you can save 16,000 lbs of Carbon Dioxide.
|You can buy a Hybrid car|
|We are using to much hot
We are using a lot of energy by using a lot of hot water. This is taking away the energy to keep us colder.
|You can use less hot water by installing a low flow showerhead.|
|We are using more gas by not carpooling with others. The air may get more polluted when we use more cars.||
If you carpool as often as you can, you can use less cars and you will save a lot more gas which will not pollute the air as much.
|Carpool with others|
|Again you will save pounds of CO2 and also a lot of money.||Check the air filter in your car regularly, you save 800 lbs of CO2 per month and about $130 per year.||Change your air filter|
|By recycling we can use things that have already been used which will let us not use as many trees or wildlife to make things for every day needs.||You can turn garden waste mulch decreases the need for trash trucks picking up the waste and delivering it to the dump, which results in less CO2 and methane being released into the environment.||Recycle more paper, plastic, and glass.|
|In regular paper you use bleach and chlorine which is chemicals and this kind of paper it is all natural.||You will save about 5 lbs of CO2 per ream of paper||Your printer paper should be “post consumed recycled paper.”|
|The garbage trucks are coming more often which is using more gas.||If you package less your garbage will reduce by ten percent.||Buy minimally packaged goods|
|By doing this you will save more energy and you can save more money on your electric bill.||Un-Plug all electronics like lamps, radios, and toasters to help save electricity and keep a lower cost of money.||Un-Plug unused electronics|
|You can give more trees to the world which will give us more oxygen and take away carbon dioxide.||By planting a tree we can provide ourselves with oxygen while at the same time removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.||Plant a tree|
|By using solar heating you save more
sunlight in the winter and by putting big trees around you house you
will use more sunlight in the summer.
||Winter- you can use solar heating. Summer- You can put big trees trees around your house so the sun won't hit your house directly.||Landscaping your home for energy efficiency|
