Global warming is primarily caused by carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that acts like a warm blanket and holds in the heat. About twenty percent of carbon dioxide emitted in the atmosphere comes from burning of gasoline in the engines of the vehicles. Home appliances contributes also in global warming. So, I may ask, would you be willing to give those things that give you comfort to stop global warming?

Global warming is primarily caused by the sun and water vapor. CO2 amounts to about 1% of the earth's atmosphere, and man only contributes about 3-5% percent of that. Man is NOT the cause of Global Warming and never was. There has been NO warming since 1998, and in 2007 the average mean temperature dropped by 0.6 degrees while the worlds oceans have cooled by about one degree. It looks like global warming may be on a vacation break.... or we may be entering another cooling period. Ether way... Man made global warming is a hoax. The figures you claim are wildly exaggerated... I would be interested in seeing your sources.

I think it's too difficult to give up using something, but I will try to use it less to do something good for our environment. I will use less plastic bags. Actually I have a cloth bag with me. I put it in the handbag. If I buy something from the grocery store, then I will use my cloth bag to carry things. Besides, I will use less paper. I will not make the air conditioner to very low temperature as it is not healthy and also wastes the electricity.
