If we just sit and do nothing about it.
Scientific consensus is that human activity, mainly carbon dioxide emissions, is causing global warming.
Every time we use electricity or gasoline, we are sending CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
Depends on us.
CO2 in Atmosphere
Years: 1000 -2100
Years: 1000 -2100
How hot it ultimately gets depends on us.
Cold due to sulfuric emissions: (1940-1970) which caused lung cancer, asthma & acid rainGlobal average temperatureYears: 1860-2000
30 years later…
We are causing Extreme poverty in Africa due to our emissions which accounts for 25% of all world emissions compared to Africa’s 3%.
First official lost species due to Global warming:
the golden toad
60% of krill population killed because of this.
Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans zooplankton, food for baleen whales, mantas, whale sharks, seals, and a few seabird species
Due to change in salinity, if Artic keeps melting, this current could stop, creating a small ice age in Europe and North America.
New blooming economies want to live their own version of the “American Dream”.
Example: in China, the traditional bicycle lane was closed to lay way to an extra automobile lane. India is now also flourishing economically and greatly increasing their CO2 emissions.
We can make a difference…
The ozone layer is healing, but there is still a higher incidence of skin cancer and other diseases in the World due in part by this hole.
You can save over $2,000 every year while helping the planet!
Packaging and clean water production needs a lot of energy and releases tons of CO2 in the atmosphere annually.
You will recover the initial costs quickly and at the same time, reduce emissions greatly.
MYTH: Not all new appliances are energy efficient!! Check the labels carefully.
Transportation accounts for 67% of oil used!
Green means it’s also good for your HEALTH.

In doing so, we are indirectly helping the extreme poor…
…is our moral responsibility.
