4. “ What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” --Mark Twain
5. So what's Global Warming? Global warming is a significant increase in the Earth's climatic temperature at a decent speed as a result of the activities of humans.

9. Earth’s temperature has risen about 1 o F in last centuries. The past 50 years of warming has been attributed to human activity . Burning fuels such as coal, natural gas and oil produces greenhouse gases in excessive amounts. Greenhouse gases are emissions that rise into the atmosphere and trap the sun’s energy, keeping heat from escaping. The U.S. was responsible for 20% of global greenhouse gases emitted in 1997. During the past 100 years global sea levels have risen 4 to 8 inches. Most of the world’s emissions are attributed to the U.S. large-scale use of fuels in vehicles and factories. Some predictions for local changes include increasingly hot summer and intense thunderstorms. Damaging storms, droughts and related weather phenomena cause an increase in economic and health problems. Warmers weather provides breeding grounds for insects such as malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
13. One of the best way to go green - Recycling "Recycling a ton of “waste” has twice the economic impact of burying it in the ground. In addition, recycling one additional ton of waste will pay $101 more in salaries and wages, produce $275 more in goods and services, and generate $135 more in sales than disposing of it in a landfill."
14. First thing first, a little R & R & R The aphorism is so tired it almost might seem like “reduce, reuse, recycle” should go without saying. But in fact, most of us have only really heard the last third of the phrase, and they’re ranked in order of importance.
16. How to green your water? 1. No drips – A dripping faucet can waste 20 gallons of water a day. 2. New fixtures can improve water effectiveness. 3. Cultivate good water habits such as turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
18. How to green your electric? 1. Cut down the lost of energy to minimum. 2. Reduce your use. Replace your light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) or LEDs. Turn off when they’re not needed, electronics that sleep/standby mode continue to pull a current.
19. 3. Installing an home alternative energy system. A solar electric system can provide all the energy. 4. Most energy consumed in home is in heating and cooling. Keep your house cool with natural ventilation instead of A/C as much as possible. Blocking sunlight can help lower your cooling load. Plant a tree, it will absorb a ton of CO 2 over its lifetime. Shade provided by trees can also reduce your A/C bill by 10 to 15%.
22. 1. Easiest of all – Go rechargeable. 2. Buy with energy in mind – Always consider buying the most energy effective model. 3. Treat those battery right – Instead of tossing them away, recycle it . Buy rechargeable battery if possible. You can also recycle old electronics such as old cellphone.
