WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE

You may not drive a Hummer or blast your AC all summer long, but you inevitably contribute to the emissions that are wreaking havoc on our climate.  The US represents 5% of the world’s population, but we produce 25% of the world’s carbon emissions that are responsible for causing global climate change.  We cannot continue on our current path of energy use without catastrophic consequences for our planet.  We must do everything we can to reduce our energy consumption and our carbon emissions.  As individuals, we can affect change.  We must take action to change our lifestyles and to educate our friends and neighbors.  Our future hangs in the balance.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD A PDF VERSION OF THE PLEDGE SHEET AND PLEDGE TO TAKE AT LEAST SIX (6) SPECIFIC STEPS TO REDUCE YOUR CARBON EMISSIONS.  GET AT LEAST THREE OF YOUR FRIENDS OR NEIGHBORS TO DO THE SAME.  Like all worthwhile endeavors, you will need to devote a bit of time and a bit of effort.  But you CAN make a difference.

What is now plain is that the emission of greenhouse gases . . . is causing global warming at a rate that began as significant, has become alarming and is simply unsustainable in the long-term. And by long-term I do not mean centuries ahead. I mean within the lifetime of my children certainly; and possibly within my own. And by unsustainable, I do not mean a phenomenon causing problems of adjustment. I mean a challenge so far-reaching in its impact and irreversible in its destructive power, that it alters radically human existence… Tony Blair
