I will start within my home. I will lessen the use of electric devices (like computer, refrigerators among others) so that there will be coal to be burn by electricity manufacturing company. And of course less burn coal will mean less smoke. And less smoke will mean there will be less damage in our ozone layer and less global warming.

It is actually hard to do this since all of the things we do now a days require electric devices. But if we have discipline and dedication we could actually do this.

The first step would I take is to instill discipline from within myself, I would not ask others to reduce the use of motor vehicles while still wearing my own motor that emits dubious. I will try to hold myself to do things that cause global warming .. And if all people think like that I believe global warming can be inhibited ... Although actually I also gained just going to try.

Never mind that too complex first. Starting in stages of: 1. Saving (water, electricity, and fuel) 2. Reduce motor vehicle (at least the personal) 3. Implement the 3Rs in the face of plastic (Reduce Reuse RECYCLE) 4. Greening, starting with planting flowers / other plants in pots / garden house 5. Consumption of organic vegetables 6. Separate between organic and inorganic 7. Avoid using air conditioning, Spray, Fridge CFC air 8. Start caring and love the earth, then all your activities will be green on its own TO THE EARTH, LET'S GO GREEEEEEN!

During this world in balance, people will not be threatened. Global Warming is a fact of nature out of balance again. Essentially What should be done is to do everything that can balance it again. By making savings, reduce abuse, fix things that should exist and reproduce things that can heal them back again. each of us balanced and in harmony, life is going so beautifully fresh and harmonious. U, I and cans together We make it better for future living.

I would remain vegan, organic. That is the single most effective most efficient way to stop the gasses that are heating this planet. Methane from the world's number 1 contributor, the livestock industry, traps heat about 72 times more effectively than carbon dioxides. The nitrous oxides from the same industry trap heat about 300 times more effectively than carbon dioxides. Carbon dioxides have an atmospheric life of about 50 years. If you shut down all sources of carbon dioxides, it would have no real impact on global warming which is expected to come to a head by the end of 2012 when the catastrophic natural disasters will have increased both in frequency & intensity (which we are seeing now & have been witnessing for the last decade),enough to have wiped out all life on this planet. An end to all animal product consumption will quickly reverse global warming as the life of methane gas in our atmosphere is less than ten years. I've discussed this issue many times already in responding to the discussions of others. The argument is long, but I've left you with the short version. If everyone in the world went vegan organic & stayed that way, global warming would end & the earth will return to be like the Garden of Eden in as little as 60 days.

The first thing i would do actually is really to teach my kids to commute instead of having to drive our own cars. It would somehow save and lessen the fumes coming out of the exhaust pipes of our car.
