SIMPLE GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTIONS

2 min read

Global Warming is a radically pressing and somber problem. We don’t want to wait for governments to come across a way out for this problem: each human being can bring an important help adopting a more responsible lifestyle: starting from little, everyday things. It’s the only reasonable way to save our planet, before it is too late. Here is a list of  trouble-free things that everyone can do in order to brawl against and trim down the Global Warming phenomenon: some of these ideas are at no cost, some other necessitate a little effort or investment but can help you save a lot of money, in the middle-long term! 

When you buy your next car, look for the one with the best fuel economy in its class because each gallon of gas you use is responsible for 25 pounds of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere. Better gas mileage not only reduces global warming, but will also save you thousands of dollars.

Even in sensibly tight homes, air leaks may account for 15 to 25 percent of the heat our furnaces produce in winter or that our homes gain in summer. Take advantage of the free home energy audits obtainable by many utilities, which can help you identify the most significant air leaks. 

Food accounts for a great piece of our emissions. If you desire to make cuts here, your best option is to decrease your consumption of meat, especially beef. So it's better to learn more about the effects of your meat choices.

You can use power strips in your home office and home entertainment center. These will curb “phantom loads” and save a startling amount on your electric bill. Keeping your laser printer turned on when not in use could be costing you as much as $130 annually so learn more about power strips and other smart tools for saving energy.

Do these simple and easy steps and help save our planet.
