An Inconvenient Truth
If this message doesn't get to you then you're already dead.
Film critic Roger Ebert wrote: "In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film. If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to."
Watch the film.
Read the book and the literature on what you can do to help.
Spread the word.
I'm going to do my part.
Things you can do:
1) Walk or commute more and carpool. This helps reduce carbon emissions from vehicles. If only we had a more efficient traffic management and public transportation system then this would be even more viable. I'd recommend using the MRT but since it's packed like a sardine can almost the whole time during its operation hours and there aren't enough trains to quicky service the people then this is a not a great option.
2) Lessen your use of paper. Use software to store data and documents. Even your billing statements can be sent via email. This will lessen the cutting down of trees.
3) Making use of environment-friendly technology. use fluorescent lights and make sure that when you purchase electric appliances thatthey are energy efficient. Turn off and unplug any appliances that you don't need and aren't using at the moment.
4) Buy fresh food because it requires les energy to prepare and store.
