燃烧化石燃料，如天然气，煤炭，石油和汽油，会提高大气中的二氧化碳含量，而二氧化碳则是温室效应和全球变暖的主要原因。通过更明智地使用能源，您可以帮助减少对化石燃料的需求，从而减少全球变暖。以下是您可以采取的10个简单行动，以帮助减少全球变暖。通过选择可重复使用的产品而不是一次性产品来尽量减少浪费。以最少的包装购买产品（包括对您有意义的经济规模）将有助于减少浪费。无论何时，您都可以回收纸张，塑料，报纸，玻璃和铝罐。如果您的工作场所，学校或社区中没有回收计划，请询问是否启动回收计划。通过回收一半的家庭垃圾，每年可以节省2,400磅二氧化碳。填埋所有窗户，以节省能源，节省资金。为您的墙壁和阁楼添加隔热材料，并在门窗周围安装挡风雨条或填缝剂，可以通过减少加热和冷却房屋所需的能源来降低25％的加热成本。在白天晚上睡觉或白天睡觉时调低热量，并始终保持温度适中。将温控器在冬季降低2度，在夏季升高，每年可节省约2,000磅二氧化碳。 CFL灯泡最初成本较高，但你会更频繁地更换它们。在任何可行的地方，用紧凑型荧光灯（CFL）灯泡替换普通灯泡。用CFL替换一个60瓦的白炽灯泡可以在灯泡的使用寿命期间节省30美元。 CFL的使用寿命也比白炽灯长10倍，能耗降低三分之二，热量减少70％。对于中等较高的初始投资，LED灯将使用一小部分电力提供更长时间的运行。与您的机械师交朋友，让您的车保持高效运转。减少驾驶意味着减少排放。除了节省汽油，步行和骑自行车是很好的运动形式。探索您的社区公共交通系统，并查看拼车上班或上学的选项。当您开车时，请确保您的车辆高效运转。例如，保持轮胎充气可以使您的油耗增加3％以上。您储存的每加仑汽油不仅可以帮助您节省预算，还可以将20磅二氧化碳排出大气层。
Burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline will increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is the main cause of the greenhouse effect and global warming. By using energy more wisely, you can help reduce the need for fossil fuels and thus reduce global warming. Here are 10 simple actions you can take to help reduce global warming. Minimize waste by choosing reusable products instead of one-off products. Buying products in the least amount of packaging (including the economic scale that makes sense to you) will help reduce waste. Whenever possible, you can recycle paper, plastic, newspapers, glass and aluminum cans. If there is no recycling program in your workplace, school or community, ask if you want to start the recycling program. By recycling half of your household waste, you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. Landfill all windows to save energy and save money. Adding insulation to your walls and lofts and installing weather strips or caulks around doors and windows can reduce heating costs by 25% by reducing the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home. Reduce your calories while sleeping at night or during the daytime, and keep the temperature at a moderate level. The thermostat is lowered by 2 degrees in winter and raised in the summer, saving approximately 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. CFL bulbs are initially expensive, but you will replace them more often. Replace the normal bulb with a compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb wherever practicable. Replacing a 60-watt incandescent bulb with a CFL can save $30 during the life of the bulb. The life of the CFL is also 10 times longer than incandescent lamps, with two-thirds less energy consumption and 70% less heat. For medium to high initial investments, LED lights will use a fraction of the power to provide longer operation. Make friends with your mechanic to keep your car running efficiently. Reducing driving means reducing emissions. In addition to saving on petrol, walking and cycling are good forms of exercise. Explore your community’s public transportation system and see options for carpooling to work or school. When you drive, make sure your vehicle is running efficiently. For example, keeping your tires inflated can increase your fuel consumption by more than 3%. The gallons of gasoline you store can not only help you save money, but you can also remove 20 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
