 Global Warming – 25 Tips

25 Tips to make a survivor guide on what you can do to help bring down Carbon Dioxide

Difference Emissions and combat Global Warming

1) Change your bulbs replace incandescent bulbs with Compact Florescent Lamp (CFL) These consume one-Quarter of the electricity and last longer.

2) Use solar devices to heat water for bathing – Such heaters have got better over the years.

3) Construct green buildings not the colour of the wall silly. If you are planning to build a house or an office complex, hire an architect who could work out the ways to optimize the use of energy. The structure could simply have better insulation to retain heat in winter. Also avoid huge glasses wall so that you don’t spend more on air conditioning during the summer.

4) Turn computers off when not in use. They consume as much electricity as three 60 W bulbs, so avoid the stand by mode.

5) Switch off the lights while sleeping or when office shut down. You will be surprised by the amount of energy you save.

6) Conserve water use sprinklers or drip – irrigation device for watering your lawns or growing crops. The days of wasteful flow of water.

7) Check your tyres maintaining the right degree of pressure in your car and motorcycle tyres improves on mileage considerably and saves fuel.

8) Buy energy efficient appliances next time you buy an iron, an oven a refrigerator or even an air conditioner, opt by models by manufacturer whose USP is energy efficiency. It will cut your electricity bills and Indian emission’s level.

9) Prepare for Disaster Dengue and diarrhea cases are expected to rise. Ensure that your local hospitals are well equipped to handle the imminent crises so that recovery is quick and there is minimum loss of life.

10) Buy fuel efficient car agreed, its time to renew our awareness about fuel efficiency not just save to energy but to beat the rise in petrol prices as well. For every liter of petrol consumed, about your kg of carbon dioxide gets injected to the atmosphere. Think about it.

11) Walk don’t drive if you have to buy a pocket of chips, don’t drive to the store next door – take a walk .If you must drive, combine a lot of chores.

12) Reduce air travel if you have to option of getting work done over the phone or email, then go ahead. It would save your money and world a whole lot of carbon emission.

13)  Turn the geyser off after a bath so that water is heated only when you need it. Also good quality shower heads ensure the flow of water is low but efficient, there by conserving energy.

14) Consume less no, we are not expecting you to turn yogi but there is no need to go to the other extreme either. When you are about to buy something ask yourself whether you really need it.

15) Turn the Tap off while soaping your face or shaving. Don’t let the water flow unnecessary. Water is going to be scarce commodity if you don’t learn to conserve it now.
