Posted on the 10 June 2011 by T_mackinnon @tedmackinnon

There are many things a person can do about global warming. Several changes are caused due to rising temperature of earth. So we need to act fast and prepare to make some profound changes.

There are many ways through which a person can reduce consumption of energy which helps in decreasing level of green house gases generated in the atmosphere. May be you would think that these things have no effect but if you go in detail then you can understand how it is harmful.

Implement the following points to show other people how to prevent global warming. This may not have a huge impact in preventing global warming but it can make difference by converting some basic thoughts in people’s mind about global warming.

One of the points for preventing global warming is to reduce drafts in your home. This is one of the simplest ways to fight against global warming. Make sure all your doors and windows are free from drafts. Due to this, the over consumption of energy which heats and cools the home will be balanced. If you rectify drafts then install a weather stripping wherever needed.

Another thing we can apply for decreasing global warming is by reducing the use of electricity. About eleven percent of electricity is consumed by phantom loads. Sometimes an electrical appliance consumes electricity even after it is not used. This is caused due phantom load. To eliminate phantom loads, plug all your electrical appliances into a multi-plug surge protector which will give you an assurance that the appliances are not consuming extra electricity.

For prevention of global warming, one of the simplest ways is using more efficient light bulbs. If every American household applies a compact florescent bulb instead of a glowing light bulb, then approximately ninety billion pounds of carbon dioxide is prevented from mixing into atmosphere!

Most of us turn up our water heaters at high temperature. If you reduce the thermostat of hot water to10 degrees Fahrenheit, then you will be successful in reducing consumption of energy to 3 to 5 percent.

These were some simple ways to help our environment by preventing global warming and can be implemented quickly. This does not require any expense. If effects of global warming is affecting your daily life and scaring you, then you should start applying these changes today. Explain to your friends what can be done about global warming and how they can help in preventing it by implementing certain changes in their lives.
