Global Warming refers to average increase in the earth’s temperature due to increase in pollution which results in greenhouse effect which in turn leads to climate change. Global warming may lead to rise in the sea level due to melting of glaciers, shrinkage of forests, changes in the rainfall pattern and wide range of impacts on plants and humans. You can help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which in turn reduces global warming, by using energy more wisely. Here are 9 simple actions you can take to help reduce global warming.
#1. Reduce, reuse, recycle
Do your part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables – get a reusable water bottle, for example. Buying products with minimal packaging (including the economy size when that makes sense for you) will help to reduce waste. And whenever you can, recycle paper, plastic, newspaper, glass and aluminum cans. If there isn’t a recycling program at your workplace, school, or in your community, ask about starting one. By recycling half of your household waste, you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually.
