Global climate change is a huge challenge. But there are many small things we can do that can make a big difference in reducing our carbon emissions. Our over-reliance on the automobile is the main reason the United States is the worst producer of greenhouse gases. By using mass transit instead of a car, we can make our single greatest contribution to reducing global climate chaos. Walking and using a bike are not only better for the environment; they are much safer for us than traveling by car. If we must drive a car, use one that gets good gas mileage. The average car emits as much carbon dioxide as the average house. Switch our light bulbs to compact fluorescents. Then change out our refrigerator and washer and dryer to more efficient models. For portable electronics, use rechargeable batteries. The average battery requires 50 times as much energy to manufacture as it will eventually deliver.
