Measuring and reducing carbon dioxide

The vast majority of scientist have concluded that our world's increased output of carbon dioxide is leading to global climate change.  This is resulting not only in global warming, but also increasingly severe weather patterns; floods, droughts, etc.  So, what's one person to do about this?

As Mahatma Grandi suggested, we should be the change we want to see in the world.  A website, carbonfootprint,  provides information on measuring your carbon footprint along with suggestions to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide you contribute to the environment though your lifestyle.  Lot's of great practical suggestions are provided.

You and I can't make much of a difference in changing the wasteful habits of other people, but we can change our daily habits to make changes for the good.  And, as Margaret Mead has noted, "Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Please join with me in being the change we want to see in this world!
