The New Year is here. That mean new beginnings and New Year's resolutions. Many of us have resolved to hit the gym more often and stay away from the deserts. In 2013, why not try to resolve to help the planet?
There are many ways to get started making a difference in the world. Here are a few ideas:
Start a web site, blog, or online group in your community to monitor local news as your media mentions extreme weather events and other predictions of Climate Change. Use Rochester Environment.com as a model.
Comment online using your social networking like Facebook and Twitter to get others involved or to pass along information about Climate Change.
Greenhouse gases are one of the major contributors to some of the climate issues. They affect the temperature of the Earth. To help curb these gases, you can carpool to work instead of driving separately. Even better, ride a bike or walk. You can also reduce your footprint by using electricity from renewable sources or by using less electricity. If you're feeling even more crafty, try solar panels instead.
Finally, join your local environmental and social groups and see what you can do around your community to help save the planet.
