Tips To Control Global Warming
Use Public Transport: Public transport, public transportation, public transit or mass transit comprises all transport systems in which the passengers do not travel in their own vehicles. While it is generally taken to include rail and bus services, wider definitions would include scheduled airline services, ferries, taxicab services etc. any system that transports members of the general public. A further restriction that is sometimes applied is that it should take place in shared vehicles, which would exclude taxis that are not shared-ride taxis. Use Renewable Energy Like Wind Power: One means of reducing carbon emissions is the development of new technologies such as renewable energy such as wind power. Most forms of renewable energy generate no appreciable amounts of greenhouse gases except for biofuels derived from biomass. Burn Methane: Burning Waste Methane. Methane is a much more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Burning one molecule of methane generates one molecule of carbon dioxide. Accordingly, burning methane which would otherwise be released into the atmosphere (such as at landfills, coal mines, waste treatment plants, etc.) provides a net greenhouse gas emissions benefit. Use Smart Cooler, Heater & Air Conditioner About half the energy we use in our homes goes to heating and cooling. Changing air filters annually, having your system checked annually and useing a programmable thermostat are all easy things you can do. Just by using a programmable thermostat, you can save about 1,800 pounds of carbon dioxide a year and about $100 a year in energy costs. If you want to go the extra mile, see ³Bonus Tips´ below for how to purchase green power. Tune up and maintain vehicles properly Unscientific maintain of vehicle leads to environment pollution. Vehicles, regardless of category are increasing day by day all over the world. The smoke released by these vehicles damage ozone layer. But it is impossible to stop the arrival of new vehicles. What can be done to the maximum is, to maintain the vehicles properly. Adopting scientific method to maintain your loved cars and bikes will play predominant role in controlling global warming. Clean the air in your house. Cleaning the air inside the house is most important thing. By doing so you will automatically contribute for global warm control. There are many things you can do to clean your house. Use proper vacuum cleaner for the purpose. Clean regularly and continuously. Put dust avoiding
curtains and use houseplants. Do not keep the dustbin unchecked. lso don¶t mess the surroundings of your house. Even take maximum care while dispatching waste materials. Try to grow as much as saplings inside your compound. Reduce electricity usage to the maximum Switch off unwanted electric equipments immediately. Or do not use them if not necessary. Often we find shining tube, unning fan, running TV«etc. One may be sound enough to pay the electric bill in the end of the month, but what about the energy that has been wasted? Replace the old ones with energy efficient lighting. Also, improve the efficiency of ome appliances. If not possible, go for an energy saving appliances. Prefer recycling Preferring reusable products instead of disposables will help in reducing the waste. When you buy a product, make sure that the packing is quite reasonable one. In other words, packing should not exceed the size of the product. Always try to recycle household waste. By recycling the household waste, one can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually.Here both the entrepreneurs and public should join hands together for a cause. Always try to educate others on preferring recycling products.
Global warming - 10 tips to control it.
All said than done, but we should go on feeding our mind about the ill-effects of Global Warming and what we can do to reduce it. Some day we may collectively join hands to take action... Until that time no matter what we shout about Global warming nothing is going to change. Larry West tips to reduce Global Warming Burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the green house effect and global warming. You can help to reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which in turn reduces global warming, by using energy more wisely. Here are 10 simple actions you can take to help reduce global warming.
1) Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Do your part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Buying products with minimal packaging (including the economy size when that makes sense for you) will help to reduce waste. And whenever you can, recycle paper, plastic, newspaper, glass and aluminum cans. If there isn't a recycling program at your workplace, school, or in your community, ask about starting one. By recycling half of your household waste, you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually.
2) Use Less Heat and Air Conditioning
Adding insulation to your walls and attic, and installing weather stripping or caulking around doors and windows can lower your heating costs more than 25 percent, by reducing the amount of energy you need to heat and cool your home. Turn down the heat while you're sleeping at night or away during the day, and keep temperatures moderate at all times. Setting your thermostat just 2 degrees lower in winter and higher in summer could save about 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.
3) Change a Light Bulb
Wherever practical, replace regular light bulbs with compact florescent light (CFL) bulbs. Replacing just one 60-watt incandescent light bulb with a CFL will save you $30 over the life of the bulb. CFLs also last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs, use two-thirds less energy, and give off 70 percent less heat. If every U.S. family replaced one regular light bulb with a CFL, it would eliminate 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gases, the same as taking 7.5 million cars off the road.
4) Drive less and Drive Smart
Less driving means fewer emissions. Besides saving gasoline, walking and biking are great forms of exercise. Explore your community's mass transit system, and check out options for carpooling to work or school. When you do drive, make sure your car is running efficiently. For example, keeping your tyres properly inflated can improve your gas mileage by more than 3 percent. Every gallon of gas you save not only helps your budget, it also keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
5) Buy Energy-Efficient Products
When it's time to buy a new car, choose one that offers good gas mileage. Home appliances now come in a range of energy-efficient models, and compact florescent bulbs are designed to provide more natural-looking light while using far less energy than standard light bulbs. Avoid products that come with excess packaging, especially molded plastic and other packaging that can't be recycled. If you reduce your household garbage by 10 percent, you can save 1,200 pounds of carbon dioxide annually.
6) Use Less Hot Water
Set your water heater at 120 degrees to save energy, and wrap it in an insulating blanket if it is more than 5 years old. Buy low-flow showerheads to save hot water and about 350 pounds of carbon dioxide yearly. Wash your clothes in warm or cold water to reduce your use of hot water and the energy required to produce it. That change alone can save at least 500 pounds of carbon dioxide annually in most households. Use the energy-saving settings on your dishwasher and let the dishes air-dry.
7) Use the "Off" Switch
Save electricity and reduce global warming by turning off lights when you leave a room, and using only as much light as you need. And remember to turn off your television, video player, stereo and computer when you're not using them. It's also a good idea to turn off the water when you're not using it. While brushing your teeth, shampooing the dog or washing your car, turn off the water until you actually need it for rinsing. You'll reduce your water bill and help to conserve a vital resource.
8) Plant a tree
If you have the means to plant a tree, start digging. During photosynthesis, trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They are an integral part of the natural atmospheric exchange cycle here on Earth, but there are too few of them to fully counter the increases in carbon dioxide caused by automobile traffic, manufacturing and other human activities. A single tree will absorb approximately one ton of carbon dioxide during its lifetime.
9) Get a Report Card from Your Utility Company
Many utility companies provide free home energy audits to help consumers identify areas in their homes that may not be energy efficient. In addition, many utility companies offer rebate programs to help pay for the cost of energy-efficient upgrades.
10) Encourage Others to Conserve
Share information about recycling and energy conservation with your friends, neighbors and coworkers, and take opportunities to encourage public officials to establish programs and policies that are good for the environment.
These 10 steps will take you a long way toward reducing your energy use and your monthly budget. And less energy use means less dependence on the fossil fuels that create greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. What Causes Global Warming? One of the first things scientists learned is that there are several greenhouse gases responsible for warming, and humans emit them in a variety of ways. Most come from the combustion of fossil fuels in cars, factories and electricity production. The gas responsible for the most warming is carbon dioxide, also called CO2. Other contributors include methane released from landfills and agriculture (especially from the digestive systems of grazing animals), nitrous oxide from fertilizers, gases used for refrigeration and industrial processes, and the loss of forests that would otherwise store CO2. Different greenhouse gases have very different heat-trapping abilities. Some of them can even trap more heat than CO2. A molecule of methane produces more than 20 times the warming of a molecule of CO2. Nitrous oxide is 300 times more powerful than CO2. Other gases, such as chlorofluorocarbons (which have been banned in much of the world because they also degrade the ozone layer), have heat-trapping potential thousands of times greater than CO2. But because their concentrations are much lower than CO2, none of these gases adds as much warmth to the atmosphere as CO2 does.
THE CAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING
Three of the four methods of measuring global temperature show no signs of global warming The fourth method, surface measurement at weather stations, gives an averaged mean global rise of a mere 0.6°C over 140 years, but is intermittent and irregular. Individual records are highly variable, regional, and sometimes, particularly in remote areas, show no change, or even a fall in temperature.It is concluded that temperature measurements carried out away from human influence show no evidence of global warming.The small and irregular rise shown by many surface stations must therefore be caused by changes in their thermal environment over long periods of time, such as better heating, larger buildings, darkening of surfaces, sealing of roads, increases in vehicles and aircraft, increased shielding from the atmosphere and deterioration of painted surfaces.
1. THE MEASUREMENT OF GLOBAL TEMPERATURE
On June 23rd 1988 Dr James Hansen of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies, New York told the US Senate that he had devised a method for calculating the average temperature of the earth¶s surface by amalgamating the many thousands of temperature measurements collected by weather stations (Hansen and Lebedeff 1987). His method can be illustrated by Figure 1, (from Karl 1998) which
shows global temperature changes from 1901 to 1996. Red dots show a temperature rise and blue dots a temperature fall, with the area of the dot indicating the size of the rise or fall (in °C/100 yr)Mercator map. In each box, the average temperature for each month of each year is calculated from records of all the weather stations that are regarded as reliable. This figure is then subtracted from the average monthly temperature for the same box for a reference period (currently 1961-1990). The result is the Temperature Anomaly for that box for that year. 2. COMPARISON OF SURFACE TEMPERATURE WITH PROXY TEMPERATURE Since the proxy measurements were all from remote areas and most of the surface measurements were close to buildings, this comparison confirms the likelihood that the increase in the amalgamated surface readings is due to their proximity to human habitation. The statistical comparison is somewhat dubious however, since the proxy measurements do not appear to take proper account of the well established Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age which are featured in other studies.
3. GLOBAL TEMPERATURE FROM WEATHER BALLOONS
Weather balloons (radiosondes) have been measuring temperature in the lower atmosphere since 1956. There are three sets of records which agree fairly well.
4. GLOBAL TEMPERATURE FROM SATELLITES
The most reliable global temperature measurements, since 1979, are those made by NASA satellites, using Microwave Sounder Units (MSUs). The temperature of various levels in the atmosphere is measured from the microwave absorption of oxygen, which is sensitive to temperature change. Measurements have a greater accuracy than the surface measurements (Christy and Goodridge 1977).
6. SURFACE TEMPERATURE FROM REMOTE SITES
Now, it so happens that there are many surface records from remote sites that do not It will be seen that many surface records in remote parts of the world show no signs of warming for the past century. There is some emphasis here of records from the Arctic, as there are persistent false claims that there is warming in the Arctic region, which are contradicted by all available measurements.
7. GLOBAL WARMING ONLY HAPPENS CLOSE TO HUMANS
The evidence is overwhelming that temperature records from places remote from human habitation show no evidence of warming. These remote places include forests, ice cores and other proxy measurements, measurements by weather balloons, measurements by satellite (the only truly global measurements) and surface measurements in places where human influence is minimal. It only remains, therefore to characterise the human influence around weather stations in more detail;.
You sound so stubborn Lilian. I was caught by surprise to learn that we can exercise writing powers of which you won. I wasn't aware that you've been under a yoke of humiliation and torture for all this long to the extent of having a very big wound that will leave a very big scar some time later I don't know when. My language though sounding vulgar, not less of excuse, but an ingredient that is always stirred by your mean kind of character of not spending on your loved one.I was thinking of whom to borrow Train fare during my last visit only my wife to emerge as my bail out. If you were keen enough, you could have even forged a lie that you had borrowed, but from who? You just let me off in haste not withstanding that there were some scores to settle or unsettled. Am disappointed in your haste xter of rushing to conclusions and decisions of which regrets come later. I have never lied to you or cheated on you even 1/4 of a day nor have I had any accuses on you either. I always share and expose even my weakest point of my manhood even to my financial status. But what I can learn from you is that you have much in store that explode like an inflated balloon only when such things happen.
How fast things have unfolded is puzzle to me. I need to talk to my wife Lilian whom I've been knowing for long time. Being a woman does not mean being submissive under oppression, in means a lot. How far can one run while seated? I know now you have no problem since I applied my womanhood to settle your scores with Janet of which up to date I've not found the cause. I know you sit comfortably in class and listen to lectures since the Principle is not your enemy for you can show him a bank challan and at home kitchen is welcome. Land is no longer a thorn in the flesh for now she can afford this month's heart drugs. Things are not universally the same my dear. Is that the reason why you what to say that sasa utaweza jitegemea? Whatever this stupid FUCK fellow will do or say is just noise, I want to do what pleases me????? Is that not what rings your mind? You have stress at all for your information. Whatever verse you can read from the Holy bible however comforting it may be, if the thorn in the flesh is not plucked out, still it keeps on reminding you that it does not belong there. Just pluck the thorn out of your flesh and move on.
I've not blocked anyone anywhere. My FB email and password ni ileile tu ulitumia. What profile are you talking of here? Just the other day you removed all your fotoz from profile yangu and pretend that you don't worsen the insult, put my foto on your profile, is that not a paradox ironically executed?
Your behaviour was like that of a girlfriend that has caught his boyfriend cheating.
When calling to inquire only to get a non remorseful Lilian who has changed to what I don know. Please do sit down and doctor that out.
You can even replace me with hata anything you what. My regular complain is and will be that you have sisters and brothers out there to message and call but this FUCK WOMAN man is nothing but a whatever, after all si atapiga simu.
You don't even dress sexy during bed time. Imagine unavalia a very old black T-Shirt na kinyasa ya green imezeeka na you expect senses to work. You dress beautifully ukitoka somthing that am pleased of but in bedroom is bad news. I thought now junior ameacha kunyonya maybe uta badilisha, only to find out that umeachia junior breasts akicheza nazo. What is this all about. Why then did you stop him from sucking?
Please do something.
