Scientists tell us we cannot reverse global warming/climate change, but are limited to slowing its progression. While our individual actions do not affect the equation significantly, collectively a lot of individual actions can make a difference.
Commit to reducing your personal power consumption by as much as possible as soon as possible. Options include:
Setting your thermostat one or more degrees higher in the summer or running AC/swamp cooler a shorter time period each day
Setting your thermostat one or more degrees lower in the winter or running your heater a shorter time period each day
Investing in a time controlled thermostat if possible and setting to a lower consumption setting during sleep hours and when no one is at home
Unplugging (or turning off power strip) kitchen appliances (other than refrigerator) when not in use
Keep refrigerators/freezers full--with empty closed containers filled with air if nothing else
Only wash clothes and dishes with full loads
If you have one, use microwave instead of stove, oven or coffee pot for reheating
If you can afford it, increase the weather-proofing on your home
Ensure your computer goes to sleep when not using it (if not turned off altogether)
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
