West Wing Reminisce
Hi people, I need your help. I know this isn't West Wing but this community has been really quiet recently anyway. I decided to create a new meme, with a conscience! Please do it and put the image on your blog, fave message boards, tell your friends. |
I CHALLENGE you all to change three of your lightbulbs from normal to energy saving lightbulbs. If one million people do this, it saves the same amount of carbon dioxide as taking **70,000** cars off the road. 1 million people may sound a lot, but think of the number of people who use live journal, my space and the rest of the internet - it's a tiny percentage!
Once you have done this please display this image on your blog/website/signature:
Feel free to link to it on my photobucket server (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y298/flamingredgirl/climatechange/climatechange.gif) but if you have your own, please save it to yours since 1 million people will be a bit much for photobucket.
Why is this important? America currently uses the resources of 4 planets each year. On October 9th we reached a point of having used up all the resources the earth can produce in a year - we are in our climate overdraft. The fee is that when Greenland or the polar icecaps begin to melt, sea level will rise by 20 feet. Billions of people will die - we will still be here! Climate change is big but you can help with small things and little effort:
Change your lightbulbs
Take the bus, train or bike to work
Switch off your computer and TV when not using them, instead of leaving them on standby. A TV on standby uses almost as much electricity as one that you are watching.
Use a colder wash
Watch "An Inconvenient Truth" - it's amazing, inspiring and terrifying
Tell your politicians that you care about climate change and they need to do something about it for your vote! (http://www.writetothem.com/ for the UK)
Pass this on!
Please do this - we can make a difference!
