5 Ways to Combat Climate Change

In honor of Blog Action Day 2009, I’m posting five things you can do right now to help stop climate change. Let me know if you decide to take action–and be sure to add a post of your own to your blog if you can!

5. Learn about the causes of climate change. Arm yourself with knowledge to be a powerful voice in the fight against climate change, and share that knowledge with others.

4. Sign a petition in favor of strong climate change legislation. There are plenty of them circulating the web today; The Wilderness Society has one you might be interested in.

3. Take a simple action in your home or life. Here is a list of 50 easy things you can do today or this week, from adding insulation in strategic places to covering your pots while cooking. It’s a great list; be sure to read it!

2. Don’t contribute to the problem. Avoid transportation that produces emissions when you can, don’t use the air conditioning if you can avoid it, eat locally to stop unnecessary transport and other causes of global warming, don’t buy Styrofoam products… There’s plenty you can just simply NOT to to help!

1. Take the No Impact Week Challenge. See how small you can make your environmental footprint!

The other day I mentioned that I had animals on the brain… Well, today it seemed to be home economic stuff. Gotta be careful; the last time I had this kind of mindset I ended up buying everybody vitamins, demanding coaster usage and getting pregnant.

And just a little Charlotte’s Web exchange to brighten your day–very similar to something (or many somethings) that Sage and I have talked about:

Charlotte: I’m versatile.
Wilbur: Does versatile mean full of eggs?
Charlotte: Certainly not. Versatile means I can change with ease from one thing to another.

Don’t you think if every writer aspires to be like any other writer, that writer should be Charlotte? Me too.
