(Hat tip to canuck at The Agonist for the video of a compressed air engine that can run a car)
So, on the day of the Live Earth concerts, what will you do to save all human life on earth?
Here’s the Live Earth Pledge:
1.To demand that my country join an international treaty within the next 2 years that cuts global warming pollution by 90% in developed countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy earth;
2.To take personal action to help solve the climate crisis by reducing my own CO2 pollution as much as I can and offsetting the rest to become “carbon neutral;”
3.To fight for a moratorium on the construction of any new generating facility that burns coal without the capacity to safely trap and store the CO2;
4.To work for a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of my home, workplace, school, place of worship, and means of transportation;
5.To fight for laws and policies that expand the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on oil and coal;
6.To plant new trees and to join with others in preserving and protecting forests; and,
7.To buy from businesses and support leaders who share my commitment to solving the climate crisis and building a sustainable, just, and prosperous world for the 21st century.
Will you take the following actions and sign the pledge?
I will change four light bulbs to CFLs at my home.
I will ride public transit or carpool one or more times per week.
I will shop for the most energy efficient electronics and appliances.
I will forward a Live Earth email message to 5 friends.
I will shut off my equipment and lights whenever I’m not using them.
Add my name to the Live Earth pledge.
Gee Kermit, it really is easy being green, if you but have the will. The only thing at stake is, well, all human life on earth.
Please share your green living tips in the comments.
