Although 72% of media outlets report on global warming with a skeptical air, the overwhelming majority of scientists believe that the extreme weather of the last decade is at least partially caused by global warming.
Despite some naysayers with alternative theories about why global temperatures are rising – including the idea that the earth goes through natural temperature cycles every few millennia – the dramatic changes in the earth’s atmospheric makeup suggests humans are to blame. In fact, 97% of scientists agree humans are responsible for climate change. So what can we do? Here are a few steps anyone can take to reduce global warming:
- Driving a car with good gas mileage, or investing in a hybrid or electric car
- Switching from incandescent light bulbs to LED’s
- Insulating your home and stocking it with energy efficient appliances
- Using green power available in your area
