Helping the climate
Five ways to help save the climate
Don’t be overwhelmed by the admittedly daunting task of curbing climate change. The Nature Conservancy offers a number of tips for small changes everyone can make that will help lower carbon emissions, including:
• Walk or bike instead of driving a car, which saves one pound of carbon for every mile you travel.
• Compact fluorescent light bulbs save 100 pounds of carbon over the life of the new bulb for each incandescent bulb replaced.
• Keeping your vehicle’s tires fully inflated means better gas mileage and saves 300 pounds of CO2 for every 10,000 miles driven.
