Let's do the right things!! starting by yourself

Friday, February 13, 2009
Everytime the earth as an ecosystem is changing, attributable in great part to the effects of globalization and man. More carbon dioxide is now in the atmosphere than has been in the past 650,000 years. This carbon stays in the atmosphere, acts like a warm blanket, and holds in the heat - hence the name ‘global warming.’

Is not wise if you only keep silence and close the eyes without doing anything. Global warming is the most urgent issue of our time and we must all be part of the solution. Joining the Virtual March is a first step to joining the movement to demand solutions now.

There are many simple things you can do in your daily life — what you eat, what you drive, how you build your home — that can have an effect on your immediate surrounding, and on places as far away as Antactica. Let's do the right things 'cause a little things can make a big difference for our life.
  1. Change to Fluorescent Bulbs - Replace 3 frequently used light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. Save 300 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $60 per year.
  2. Don't Rinse - Skip rinsing your plates before putting them into the dishwasher. In average you will save 15 gallons of water per load. Plus, you will save time.
  3. Hang Outside to Dry - Get a cloths line or rack to dry your cloths. Your cloths will last longer and you will save money
  4. Turn off computers at night - don't just put them to sleep. You will save an average of 4 cents a day which ads up to $14.60 a year.
  5. Use Both Sides of Paper - if you have a printer with a double sided print option use it. You will save half of the amount of paper you would have normally used.
  6. Get rid of baths - Don't take baths, take showers. You will in average save about half the amount of water that you would if you were taking a bath.
  7. Don't get bottled water - Instead of bottled water get a reusable container to carry water. Also you can get a filter to make your home tap taste more like bottled water. It is definitely more cost efficient.
  8. Turn the water off when you brush - Your parents have said this before, now I say it. You will save 4 gallons of water doing this alone.
  9. Shorten your shower - Every minute you cut from your shower is roughly 5 gallons of water. The less time your shower takes, the lower your impact on the environment.
  10. Recycle Glass - If you do not recycle this, it will take a million years to decompose.
  11. Don't Pre-Heat the Oven - unless needed, just turn the oven on after you put the dish in it. Also, to see if it's finished just look through the glass instead of opening it.
  12. Use Warm or Cold Setting on Washer - instead of the hot cycle use the warm or cold setting. This will save a lot of energy a year.
  13. Turn Down your Thermostat - Every degree lower in the winter or higher in the summer you put it is a 10% decrease on your energy bill.
  14. Turn off your lights - An easy one. Turn off your lights when you are not using them. The benefits are obvious.
  15. Get rid of junk mail - There are many services that can help you get rid of junk mail. That will lead to a lot less trees being cut down to take up room in your mailbox.
  16. Use Matches instead of lighters - Lighters are usually considered disposable so they will most likely end up in land fills. You can use the cardboard matches which are much more eco-friendly because they are made of recycled material.
  17. Don't get a paper phone book - Instead of getting a paper phone book. Use a online directory instead.
  18. Give things away - Take things that you are not going to wear or use and give it to a charity or someone who will use it.
  19. Go to a car wash - Going to a car wash is a lot more water efficient then washing your car at home.
  20. Stop paper bank statements - Why waste paper getting your bank statement mailed to you when you can just check it out online.
  21. Buy Rechargeable Batteries - Even though it will take a good investment to buy these you will find yourself gaining it back in no time.
  22. Pay your Bills Online - If every house in the US did this then we would save 18 million trees every year.
  23. Get a reusable bag - You can't recycle plastic bags, instead get yourself a reusable bag so that you won't have to worry about carrying your necessities.
  24. Do Errands in Bulk - Make a list of the things you have to do, and see if you can fit a couple of those things together in one ride.
  25. Inflate your Tires - If your tires are inflated at all times your car will run more miles on less gas.
  26. Wrap Presents Creatively - Without going out to get wrapping paper you can use newspaper, an old map, or anything else. It would look a whole lot more creative.
  27. Plant a Tree - It's good for the air, can keep you cool, and can increase your property value.
  28. Buy Local Produce - Consider how much energy it takes for produce from china or any other country to come here. If you have the option to buy local, do it.
  29. Walk or Ride Your Bike When you can - If you have to go somewhere close consider riding your bike or walking there instead of your car. It's better on the environment and healthier.
Starting this by yourself and get the people to do the same with you. Remember that Global Warming not just an issues..but Global Warming is fact and we must stop it!
"The day after tommorow" can remind us the worst effects of global warming.

Saat ini sudah semakin qta rasakan suhu bumi yang semakin meningkat dengan tidak wajar dan kalau ini dibiarkan terus menerus akan berdampak fatal pada kelangsungan hidup bumi qta beserta isinya."kepunahan". Telah banyak film-film yang telah diproduksi untuk mengingatkan qta akan bahaya global warming seperti "The day after tommorow". Dan bukanlah hal yang bijak jika kamu hanya terus berdiam diri dan menutup mata tanpa melakukan apa-apa. Pemanasan global adalah masalah yang paling besar dan qta semua harus menjadi bagian untuk mengatasinya agar tidak semakin buruk. Ada banyak hal sederhana yang bisa kamu lakukan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari - apa yang kamu makan, apa yang kamu kendarai, bagaimana kamu membangun rumah - yang dapat memiliki efek langsung di sekitarnya, dan di tempat-tempat yang jauh seperti Antactica. Lakukanlah hal yang benar karena hal-hal terkecilpun bisa berdampak besar untuk kehidupan kita. Hemat listrik dengan matikan lampu dan peralatan listrik yang tidak digunakan, hemat air, Jemur pakaian dengan bantuan sinar matahari, hemat kertas - gunakan kertas bolak balik, gunakan produk daur ulang, kurangi penggunaan kantong plastik, tanam pepohonan, beli produk lokal, berjalan kaki lah atau bersepedalah.

Lakukanlah ini dimulai dari diri kamu sendiri dan ajaklah orang lain untuk berbuat hal yang sama. Ingatlah "Global Warming not just an issues..but Global Warming is fact and we must stop it!!"
