Here are some things you can do own your own, right away
A week of being a climate hero
Meatless Monday: Cows, sheep, and goats emit lots of methane. 80% of deforestation in the Amazon is due to cattle production.
Transfer Tuesday: Call Potomac Edison and transfer your source of electricity to renewables. Coal-fired plants pollute our air, sicken our population, and dramatically add to greenhouse gases.
Walking Wednesday: (or take a bike, MARC, bus) 27% of US carbon emissions come from transportation.
Thermostat Thursday: You save 6% on your heating bill for every 1 degree C (1.8 degrees F) cooler in the winter, or warmer in the summer that your keep your house.
Five bulbs Friday: Change five light bulbs that you use most often to LEDs, which use only a fraction of the energy of incandescents and last 50,000 hours (compared to 1200 Hours for incandescents).
