Simple steps to stop global warming

Together, we can make a difference! Let's guide our country towards a clean energy future that will create jobs, strengthen our economy, and protect our environment. The following simple steps will help prevent climate change for future generations.

Recycle plastic water bottles, glass containers, paper, and aluminum soda cans. You can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide a year by recycling half of the waste your household generates.
Reduce greenhouse gasses, provide habitat for native wildlife, improve human health by producing oxygen and improving air quality, and reduce home energy needs by planting a tree.
Conserve energy by turning lights and computers off when you leave a room. Electronics are affecting global warming in a truly preventable way.
Reduce the consumption of plastic and paper shopping bags due to their adverse effect on the environment.
