We must bring down demand for electricity through conservation and efficiency practices, thus eliminating the need for new power plants and reducing CO2 emissions by closing existing coal plants.
“It is still feasible to solve the global warming problem before we pass tipping points that would guarantee disastrous irreversible climate change. But urgent strong actions are needed.”
– James Hansen, Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
Embrace Alternative Energy Sources
Sunlight is free energy. Using heat from the sun to heat water can reduce your electricity bill by 20-30% for the lifetime of your solar water heater. Solar photovoltaic systems, which use free sunlight to produce electricity, also save you money for decades after the initial investment.
