Small actions, EVEN IF performed by ALL the 99.9% of people on Earth are UTTERLY INSUFFICIENT even to ameliorate the impending Climate Catastrophe.
GET REAL.

Thank you. I think all this can certainly delay the crisis and buy us some much-needed time.

But I'm afraid I don't believe this alone will solve anything. We need drastic action on a corporate and governmental level and, as yet, we're not seeing it.

I think we're in trouble here.

I agree we are in trouble. If people get involved with the small actions and care about the environment, they will vote out the anti-climate legislators. But, not enough people really care.

Going Vegan is one of the best ways for an individual to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Nice list but all are not options. I don't need Meatless Mondays because I don't eat too much meat. I am not uplugging things that need to be plugged in. I hate those curley light bulbs but I don't use less lights than most people use. I don't drive which takes care of driving and there are no tires to check. We can't adjust the heat in our apartments and they are only on a couple times a day. I don't own an air conditioner. That's not on the list! why isn't it on the list?

I already do all of the things listed in the hope that it will help, but the thing I have little control over is packaging.At Christmas my family had many gifts which came in boxes and although I recycle,the men will only take so much at a time and it is going to take several weeks to dispose of. The manufacturers should look long and hard at the often useless excess cardboard and plastic they insist on using.

We don't even take into account the tremendous health cost to us and our planet, when we burn oil, coal, and natural gas, which would make them more expensive than Solar or Wind. We need a National Feed in Tariff, for Solar and Wind, with laws that level the playing field, this petition starts with homeowners in California. Japan, Germany, and our state of Hawaii, will pay residents between 21- 54 cents per kilowatt hour, here in California they will pay us 5 cents per kilowatt hour, and they wont let us oversize our Solar systems, want to change our Feed in Tariff? Campaign to allow Californian residents to sell electricity obtained by renewable energy for a fair pro-business market price. Will you read, sign, and share this petition?

changed light bulbs, trying to recycle as much as I can, avoiding products with excess packaging, adjusting thermostat whenever I can, planting trees via "trees from the future" her on Care2 and I intend to plant few of my own ;) ... spreading the word how to be more "green" every day ;)

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Agnes because you have done so within the last week.

noted. Nothing could convince me to use those curly light bulbs as they contain mercury and do explode sometimes. I am waiting for the LED bulbs to get cheaper. I recycle everything I can and do not own a car.
