  3. 3. What is global warming?<br />An increase in the Earth’s temperature is called Global warming. This includes an increase in air temperature and ocean temperature. This poses a great threat to biodiversity. Global warming is mainly caused by air pollutants that trap the sun’s heat, thus increasing the world’s overall temperature.<br />
  4. 4. Actions for reduce global warming<br />Global Warming is a dramatically urgent and serious problem. We don't need to wait for governments to find a solution for this problem: each individual can bring an important help adopting a more responsible lifestyle: starting from little, everyday things. It's the only reasonable way to save our planet, before it is too late.<br />
  5. 5. The students can try changing them to compact fluorescent bulbs, as they will last longer and conserve energy too.<br /> Turn off all appliances which you are not using currently.<br />Try to carpool or walk instead of driving. Riding a bike if possible to go to school<br />Planting lots of trees.<br />Install a programmable thermostat in classrooms with heating or air conditioning, this lowers the energy levels.<br />
  6. 6. if you put a thermostat in the room with air conditioning move 2 ° in winter and up 2 ° in summer, this could save about 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year with this simple adjustment.<br />their electronic devices like a laptop does not leave it in standby or "hibernating" and it consumes much more energy to produce more CO2.<br />Use less hot waterIt takes a lot of energy to heat water. You can use less hot water by installing low-flow shower (350 pounds of carbon dioxide per year) and washing your clothes in cold or warm water (500 pounds saved per year) instead of hot.<br />when washing your clothes using a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible so you can save 700 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air to dry your clothes for 6 months a year.<br />
  7. 7. recycle their household rubbish, so you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide per year by recycling half the waste generated in households.<br />biodegradable waste gases such as methane emitted which pollute the environment, students can recycle this waste into compost for gardening.<br />physical activity and when you buy bottled water, it is better to buy a 1.5 liter three of five liters, and that generate less waste.<br />reduce waste, such as when you buy a hamburger is a dish best eaten in lunch box, doing this will help you lower greenhouse gas emissions.<br />
  8. 8. eating fresh and not frozen, as frozen food uses 10Start a carpool with your coworkers or classmates<br />Sharing a ride with someone just 2 days a week will reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by 1,590 pounds a year. times more energy to produce.<br />Try telecommuting from home<br /> Telecommuting can help you drastically reduce the number of miles you drive every week. <br />Encourage your school or business to reduce emissions<br /> You can extend your positive influence on global warming well beyond your home by actively encouraging other to take action.<br />
