5 Ways to Prevent Global Warming That Big Media Won't Tell You

Repeatedly, you’ll hear or read the same suggestions as to what you can do to prevent global warming. Big media sources typically suggest very simplistic things like changing your light bulbs to compact fluorescents, buying a hybrid car, or unplugging appliances when they’re not in use.

But you want to make a real difference.

You are not content with the mainstream media’s advice, because you know that there are bigger things to be done, more dramatic actions to be taken to stop climate change from wrecking further havoc upon our precious ecosystems. Here I will share with you some of those bigger solutions that big media won’t tell you.


1.) Avoid high gas prices and carbon emissions

You will avoid rising prices at the gas pump and dramatically reduce your daily carbon emissions by selling your car. Buying a hybrid vehicle is one thing, but you’re still highly dependent upon fossil fuel for energy.

You will become healthier by riding a bicycle. Curb your addiction to cars , sell your vehicle, and become more mobile by using a bike, or public transportation such as the bus, subway, or train. There may even be carsharing programs in your city. There are numerous transportation alternatives to owning and driving a car.

If your daily commute is more than a few miles away from your home, you may want to consider moving to a closer location to your job. Living car-free is a liberating experience and you will learn to prevent global warming on your way to work .

2.) Eat fresh, local foods for a healthy environment and you

There has been an influx of organic food in supermarkets over the past several years. But of equal importance to consider is where that food is coming from. For example, how much of the produce in your supermarket is being transported halfway around the world? Check the stickers on those apples and peaches and you’ll see ” Produce of Chile”, “Mexico”, or “China”. Also important to note: how much of that food is actually in season ? The transportation of food is a major contributor to greenhouse gases.

Easy ways for you to get low carbon food are:

Buying things that are actually in season . Buying locally-grown fruits and vegetables at farmers markets. Joining a CSA .

You’ll massively reduce the carbon from your food if you follow the above advice. Plus, eating locally-grown, fresh foods is not only better for the planet, it’s healthier for you, too.

3.) Learn how to reduce your home’s carbon footprint

Do you realize that modern houses are built using synthetic products and other materials with high embodied energy ? Sadly, this means that modern homes are huge contributors to global warming . For example, concrete is (amazingly) the second most consumed material on earth , right behind water, and it takes a huge amount of energy to produce it. Not only that, the manufacturing process is highly p...
