scientists believe the earth began over
four-and-a-half billion years ago the
third planet from the Sun is currently
the only known astronomical object to
harbor intelligent life for much of our
planet's history its existence has
continued unhindered by human activity
only toward the middle of the 20th
century did the earth start to feel the
negative effects of human activity the
Earth's climate has been changing at an
alarming rate for the past 100 years the
negative effects of global warming will

destroy human life and prosperity as a
whole we must alter the ways we live our
lives in order to combat climate change
it sounds impossible well simply
tweaking a few aspects of your daily
routine could have a positive effect on
the Earth's atmosphere I'm Mike with
list when t5 and if everyone joins
together to make a change the whole
world could benefit from it 25 build a

downspout planter box Philadelphia and
homeowners are lucky to have the
opportunity to learn how to build their
own downspout planter boxes for free the
plant boxes are created as an
eco-friendly way to keep from flooding
and capture rainwater an efficient
planner is filled with a base layer of
gravel to allow for drainage the gravel
is then topped with soil and native
perennial vegetation that grows every
spring 24 replace your air filter it

suggested that the average household
without any pets should change their air
filter every 90 days the household with
furry pets should try and change theirs
every 60 after a while and dust
particles build up on the air ducts
which then caused the system to work
even harder to improve the air quality
dirty air filters are a huge waste in
energy and money 23 unplug electronic
devices take a moment to look around you

how many appliances are plugged in that
aren't being used many people don't
realize that even if a device is off
it's still using energy almost a quarter
of all household energy can
assumption is wasted on appliances in
idle power mode grouping your devices on
one power strip can make it easier for
you to turn them off and on at the same
time 22 volunteer one of the best ways
to give back to your community is by
volunteering researchers have found that

people who volunteer are happier and
have higher self-confidence
volunteering is also a wonderful
activity that can help a family bond a
quick Google search can provide you with
local organizations that specifically
work towards battling climate change
whether you're picking up trash planting
trees or simply helping spread the word
every action matters 21 start composting
compost is the process of decomposing

organic matter Sir Albert Howard an
English botanist is considered the
father of the organic method some
benefits of composting include rich soil
which helps to reduce plant diseases
reduction in the need for chemical
fertilizers and reduction in methane
emissions from landfills you can
purchase your own kitchen compost waste
collector for less than $30 on Amazon 20
recycle recycling might seem like a
modern concept a majority of the public

believe it started to turn the 1970s
environmental movement however people
have actually been recycling for
thousands of years recycling is an easy
way to reduce the amount of wastes and
landfills yet sadly only around 34
percent of Americans actually
participate in this eco-friendly
activity let's get with the Act shall we
19 manage water intake to some people

clean water is a blessing to others it's
just another aspect of their everyday
life the amount of energy it takes to
clean water varies from state to state
in California it takes around 1,000
kilowatt hours of energy to treat
300,000 gallons next time you leave the
water running while brushing your teeth
or washing dishes try to remember how
much energy goes into purifying it
taking shorter showers installing
low-flow toilets and fixing household
leaks are always you can reduce your

water intake 18 restore old furniture
every year an estimated 10 million tons
of furniture is taken to landfills
according to curbed a good majority of
that furniture could have been donated
or even better restored the good thing
is that recently there's been a rise in
restoring old furniture giving it
vintage objects the Second Life is a
great way to combat climate change
rustic furniture is also quite charming

and can be a classic centerpiece in any
home 17 wash clothes with cold water
some way is to combat global warming are
harder than others changing a daily
routine isn't always easy
people get so used to doing something a
certain way that it becomes a habit
however washing your clothes the cold
water is one of the easiest ways to make
a positive difference in the environment
almost 90 percent of the energy used
wash clothes goes towards warming up

water 16 switch to LED light bulbs as
small and insignificant as a regular
light bulb may seem one bulb can use up
to eight hundred and seventy-six
kilowatt hours of energy a year now
multiply that by 45 because that's the
average number of light bulbs in a US
household switching to LED light bulbs
can enormous ly affect climate change in
a positive way they have the ability to

work in extreme temperatures and can
save households hundreds of dollars a
year on their electricity bill
fifteen use energy wisely some of the
smallest changes to your everyday
lifestyle can help make the biggest
impact on climate change one of the
first steps is to acknowledge the amount
of energy your household uses only once
that's completed can you begin changing
the way you use energy one of the
easiest changes is to simply unplug
electronics that aren't in use also hang

your clothes to dryer during the warmer
months install a program will thermostat
that can make a big difference in
reducing energy consumption 14 grow your
own food nowadays people have gotten
used to go into their local grocery
store to pick up their weekly food items
in some cases that convenience has
caused people to grow out of touch with
how their food is produced grocery
stores tend to display only nice-looking
produce as a result billions of tons of

food go to waste every single year the
amount of energy it took to produce and
transport that food is likewise wasted
by growing your own food you will not
only reduce food waste but you'll also
improve your family's health 13 install
solar panels Edmund borrow a French
physicist invented solar panels cell
technology in 1839 however it took
almost a hundred and sixty-five years

for the invention to make its way into
mainstream market in 2005 DIY solar
panels started to become a popular item
in households homeowners started to take
advantage of that renewable energy and
reap the benefits of solar panels not
only do they reduce electricity bills
but they're also good for the
environment twelve shop smart knowing
where you do business is just as
important as recycling and cutting down
on plastic waste according to a report

by the non-profit Carbon Disclosure
Project just 100 companies worldwide are
responsible for 71 percent of the
world's industrial greenhouse gas
emissions since 1988 that's why it's so
critical to shop eco friendly businesses
that care about the environment
if consumers continue to buy from
companies who are negatively impacting
climate change things will just keep
getting worse 11 bring your own shopping
bags in the majority of European

countries plastic bags aren't just
frowned upon there are legal countries
like Kenya Mali Uganda and Morocco just
to name a few have all banned plastic
bags in England most stores don't even
offer plastic bags because people are
expected to bring their own reusable
sadly the United States hasn't gotten
that far yet however as an American
consumer you can take matters into your
own hands by shopping with a reusable
bag 10 invest in a reusable straw

Americans use more than 500 million
disposable straws every day according to
USA Today
that's almost 9 million tons of plastic
waste at the end of the year investing
in a reusable straw is a simple way
people can help combat climate change
researchers have found that reusable
straws significantly lower the pollution
in our oceans they're also more
economically beneficial than disposable
straws 9 talk about climate change

communication is a powerful tool when
people discuss issues they take the
first step towards making a change
it's only when problems are ignored due
to silence that a true crisis emerges
global warming activists are urging the
public to continue to talk about the
negative effects greenhouse gases have
on our atmosphere public discussions can
help transform a culture talking about

these issues can also educate people and
spread insight on local ways to help
make a change
a plant a tree what screams I love the
environment more than planting a tree
one single tree can produce up to 260
pounds of oxygen every year it's amazing
how just one tree can have such a
positive impact on the environment visit
your local plant nursery to find out

which type of tree would thrive in your
yard planting a tree also offers a fun
activity the whole family can enjoy
seven cut down on flying it almost seems
unnatural how an 80,000 pound airplane
can soar perfectly through the sky it
takes around 18,000 kilograms of
aviation fuel to get that hunky piece of
metal off the ground just how cars
negatively affect the atmosphere
airplanes due to aviation releases

carbon dioxide and other greenhouse
gases into the atmosphere the most
effective way to reduce this problem is
simply by flying less six build a wind
turbine watching a tall wind turbine
span is like watching a war hero do a
salute there's something extremely
honorable about wind energy that gives
the structure a sense of pride also when
turbines provide a clean a fuel source

and don't pollute the air if more
funding was invested in wind energy it
could make a huge positive impact on
climate change the goal is for the u.s.
to one day be completely energy
independent and no they don't cause
cancer mr. president Wow windows cause
games they also kill so many birds he's

such an idiot five buy second-hand
clothes giving gently used clothes a
second life can be exciting it can also
save you money retail stores are known
for charging ridiculous amounts for
name-brand clothing on the other
and thrift stores typically sell items
at an extremely discounted rate
buying secondhand is also more
sustainable in just the United States
over 21 billion pounds of textile waste

gets thrown into the landfill every year
for vote Americans have the privilege of
living in a country where elected
representatives are voted in by the
population whether it's voting in the
midterm elections or in the presidential
elections your vote does matter we give
the politicians we elect power to fight
for our beliefs that's why it's so
critical to vote for people who we think
are going to implement environmental
change three change your diet if you

haven't noticed the vegan diet has been
on a steady rise not only is the
plant-based diet healthy but it's also
good for the environment practicing it
vegans abstain from the use of any
animal products especially in their diet
researchers found that the meat and
dairy industry is the second biggest
contributor to climate change slightly
changing your diet could have a bigger
effect on the atmosphere then you might
think to reduce food waste it's quite

shocking to know that we live in a
country where a whopping 1/3 of the food
from farms is wasted not only to an
estimated eight hundred million people
worldwide go hungry at the same time but
the amount of energy wasted making that
food is astronomical researchers believe
that the food waste contributes three
point three Giga tons of co2 into the
atmosphere each year both retailers and

consumers need to start thinking about
how they can reduce food waste
one cut down on driving the first
practical automobile was created in 1885
ever since then it's been a modern
luxury let's face it
cars make life more efficient they can
take us from point A to point B in a
matter of minutes despite how useful
they are however car pollution is one of

the biggest causes of global warming if
getting rid of your car isn't an option
try cutting back on driving by
carpooling with your co-workers or
riding your bike to nearby locations so
what's something you can do to help
combat climate change let us know in the
comments below or tweet your answer less
at list 25 and on a personal note I just
want to say I know we're gonna get
people who say climate changes in a
thing cool even if it's not even if you

are right nothing is hurt by you doing
these things if we start doing things to
combat climate change and it wasn't a
real thing what's happening there's no
downside the only downside is if we
don't do something and you're wrong and
it is real enjoying our lists be sure to
