    • Save Our Earth An informational guide
    • The Problem
      • We are currently polluting earth at an alarming rate
      • People and governments are not taking enough initiatives to stop the problem
      • Until recently, the President of the United States and other world leaders still argued that global warming did not exist
    • How Did we get here? Although disasters such as the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill contributed, it is our daily habits and consumption that make up for most of today's pollutants, they include:
      • On road vehicles
      • This includes cars, buses and trucks
      • Non-road vehicles
        • This includes ships, trains and planes
      • Businesses
      • Area sources
        • This includes fireplaces, wood burning stoves, gas stations, spray paint, etc
    • The Types of Pollution

    • Policy Change
      • From Capital Hill to the Canadian Parliament action must be taken in the form of policy creation
      • Governments must create harsher laws against pollution
      • Funding must be made available for programs designed to cut pollution
      • People must pressure businesses to take environmentally friendly initiatives
      • Implementation should be worldwide

    • How do we make a difference?
      • Here is a list of little things you can do
      • Turn off the lights when you leave the room
      • Carpool, take the bus or ride your bike

      • Go tree planting
      • Don’t idle
