I am recycling as much as I can, I know that is not much but is better than nothing. Sometimes I feel bad about driving my car... Knowing it pollutes the air we all breathe. So what do you do to help prevent Global Warming?

I turn off electronics I don't use, and lights in rooms when no-one is inside. It's elementary though. I recycle as much as I can too. And I eat organic food as much, as I can, I grow it in my garden.

Hi good day to you! I also recycle used things such as paper, bottles,plastics and etc. Because i know in this act I can able to prevent global warming, then while preventing it. I can still able to earn small amount of money for my own needs. Then other way preventing global warming, I plan vegetables at the back in our garden because it will give good oxygen and i can able to have a good return such us their goods that they give. In addition here in our barangay theres a contest every week that the most cleanness front road will have a award every month. That's why we always maintain cleanliness. Then here our place we do not burn garbage because it destroy the nature. By the way, your topic is good. It will helps to prevent global warming because they can able to know the ways of preventing global warming. Keep it up!

With this latest artic blast we are having, I could use a bit more global warming in my part of the world. Brrrrr!!!! Regardless of whether global warming is real or not, pollution is. Pollution brings nothing but more medical problems for innocent people. I use as little energy as I can. My heat is turned down a few degrees. I have two sweaters on. Brrrr!! Spring, where are you???

What am I doing to prevent global warming: 1. Not listing to media and government propoganda. 2. Getting the facts - it natural for the earth to heat and cool. Current the earh is in a warming phase. 3. Driving an economical car - saves on gas, which is easy on my budget. 4. Spend as little time outdoors as possible, where I live skin cancer is a greater concern than global warming. 5. Using all the knowledge I've gleamed from physical geography, critical thinking, and statistics classes to actually make rational rather than irrational choices. I make the rational choice not to buy into the hype and fear of global warming and live my life. 6. I make plans to educate the next generations to use resources wisely because they are limited, non-replenshiable, and the world operates under scarity.

good choice. I too try not to get to crazy about global warming, but I do strongly know is happening.

I recycle everything I can and try to receive all letters etc electronically so I don't get too much paper. I've changed most of my lightbulbs to more effective ones, and I usually don't heat a lot. I'm quite happy in 17 degrees Celsius, but not all my friends are so if I get guests I have to warm up the flat a bit. I also try to buy local food etc when I can.

I too am not a part of the global warming hysteria. Times and seasons come and go as does natural changes in climate and life itself. With all of the freezing temps all over the country and the record breaking snows - one sometimes wonders about it all. Oh, and just for the record - - those of us who don't hold to the global warming hysteria, are 'not' ignorant - we just have differing view points, and there are many in the scientific community who don't espouse this view either. Stay warm

I think consumers ultimately have a lot of power. One thing that everyone can do is buy local food. In the UK, we buy a lot of lamb and mutton - whilst there's plenty farmed in Wales (and all over the UK), we nevertheless import a lot from New Zealand, which is just obscene. Thousands of unnecessary food miles, for no apparent reason! It's the same with fruit and vegetables - where possible, buy local. Also, I use public transport instead of driving myself, limit overseas travel as far as possible, recycle as much as possible, and use as little paper as possible (paper-free billing, e-mail over letters, etc.). I also have a green energy supplier, limit home energy usage, and avoid companies with a poor ecological record.

Wow, we defenitely need more people like you.

Nothing at all. I'm quite sceptical about the artificial global warming theory. After all, that's exactly what it is - a theory, it hasn't been proven. It seems pretty unlikely to me that the amount of CO2 emitted by human activity is enought to affect the climate. Certainly there are a lot of scientists - who certainly know more than me about the subject - who dispute the theory.

wow, so you seriously think is just a theory? Well we will see in the future who is right. We are eating the planet.

I keep the light off until its rather dark - if it doesn't need to be on, then i won't have it on. I dont leave anything on standby, i recycle, turn lights off when my brother and mother leave them on in the house etc... I mainly just do the little things... oh.. and i also do alot of walking rather then getting lifts etc.

that is good, I do try to take public transportation whenever I can, walking would be impossible for me... my job is too far away

This is something which made me really think. What am I doing to prevent global warming? Yep, I try to recycle and reuse what I have at home. I try to minimize the use of plastic, I avoid smoking and I try to walk when I can.

Call it whatever you want to call it but it's simply the earth going through it's cycle. All of the universe has some sort of cycle as do all living creatures. Call it what you want. It's my belief that the resources available to us are being used up. There's only so much fossil fuel, for example, and I realize it's a debatable one. Desert areas are growing whilst glaciers are melting causing sea levels to rise in other places. It's a cycle. What I've done is educate myself on how to provide for myself. I have a garden. I have a milk cow and a couple of chickens for fresh eggs. I don't own a car and haven't in 10 years. I walk or take public transportation. I don't own a clothes dryer. Mother Nature is a good enough clothes dryer on her own! lol. I recycle and reuse. Another responder was talking about the unnecessary expense of importing products when your own country produces enough. That's a big thing in my book. Globalization is what is killing our planet, not global warming (or whatever you want to call it). It's more simply that we need to respect the earth, each other and what precious resources we have left.

I am a proactive, an environmentalist, nature lover all rolled into one. I have countless trees/shrubs/flowering plants in my garden.I have a bird bath that takes care of birds, my garbage is recycled, I use every drop of used water for my garden, These are some of the many activities that I do to prevent global warming.

Like everyone suggested, I switch off the electrical appliances when not needed and if the weather is cold, I will switch off the fan.

Hi beatrizguiselle . I am doing nothing to prevent global warming because I consider it a farce. I've lived over half a century and have heard many scares. When I was around 16, the science teachers in school were telling us an ice age would be coming around 2015. That's right, ice age. In 2000 most of the worlds' computers were going to shut down. And there have been a few more scares. Though I feel there is not and will not be global warming, I still recycle -oil, paper, plastic bottles.
