Are you doing anything about climate change?

In today's news, the UN reported that last year was the fourth warmest on record. We would like to hear what our Cafestudy members are doing to help slow down climate change. Have you changed your habits recently? Or maybe you are meaning to but haven't got round to it yet? Please let us know!

gdtrue says: Climate change scare mongering is like 'the Ozone hole over Antarctica' that was introduced by two American scientists (Rowland and Molina) in the mid 70s. They had to come up with something novel for a new study. And their proposal for the cause of this ozone depletion (hole is so more dramatic) was CFCS in the atmosphere (CFC =Chlorinated Fluoro Carbons). They were used extensively as propellants in aerosols and refrigerants (helped cooling) in your standard fridge. They are now banned extensively but are still used in 'ventolin puffers' so that the medicine can be introduced into asthma sufferers. A TV show in Australia in 1989 (called something like "The World Tomorrow' on Thursday nights, 7:30 p.m. on 7) with presenter Kareena Kelly tested their theory over industrial Osaka, Japan. It should have been a big win but fizzled out as an abject failure with no Ozone depletion and no apology from anyone about this clear failure to match large CFC concentrations with a corresponding reduction of Ozone (O3).
