Check list for creating Global Warming Awareness
Global warming! Global warming! Global warming! You might be hearing this from last 10 or 15 more often in the news channels, news paper, and media and through other source of medium. But let me explain you this topic in details.

Basically, Global Warming means our earth getting hotter and hotter. Our home i.e is Earth is getting warmed continuously through various sources such as Gases in the Atmosphere, ultra violet radiations and many more. And thousand of Scientist has concluded that Global Warming might be not possible to control and it is beyond of our hand which is changing our current climate. Only one factor is not associated with the global warming because there are many and due the human activities is the single most major factor which increasing global warming in the atmosphere. Such activities include burning of fossil fuels, oils and many more similar to that.

Don’t think one can’t make any difference towards global warming awareness, but you have to start first than rest of others will follow you.

Create Global Warming Awareness 1st from your side and other will follow you To create awareness about Global Warming I have created Top 10 check list so you can have comprehensive list of global warming awareness.

1. Use less produce able Carbon Dioxide bulbs or lightings
Don’t use fluorescent bulbs as it takes high ratio of energy to output large amount of lights. So replace it with less energy consumable light bulbs. Scientist has discovered that if we use CFL bulb than we can lower down nearly 700 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air over the bulb's lifetime. It use only a quarter of the energy consumed by conventional bulbs.

2. Efficient usage of Home Appliances
In home we are using energy more than required and it resulting wastage of energy. As we get energy by power plants, which burn fossil fuel to power our electric products. Making it burn outputs air pollution and contributes to smog, acid rain and global warming. If we use less energy definitely we will be saving money as well as energy.

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy estimates that if each of us increases the energy-efficiency in our major appliances by 10 - 30%, we'll release the demand for electricity by the equivalent of 25 large power plants!

3. Buy power saving Appliances
While you go for shopping for any electric appliances don’t buy appliances which use power above than average use specially appliances such as Refrigerator, Stove, Washer/Dryer, Air Conditioners, Water Heater, Computers and Home Office Equipment. Buy which has highest energy efficiency rating specified by any experts or sources.

By using appliances marked with Energy Star Logo can help us to save 15 percent of energy than the federal requirement.

Energy Star is the symbol for energy efficiency. It's a label created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to help consumers save money and minimize air pollution.

4. Mineralize the energy needed for heating
USA Scientist concluded that heating and cooling systems in the U.S.A. emit into the atmosphere more than millions of tons of carbon dioxide each year, which increasing the % of Global Warming rates. By decreasing the usage appliances we can save lots of energy which emits heat.

5. Save your fuel while driving
You can’t image that you can manage to save your fuel 30% by simple vehicle maintenance and attention to your style of driving in an appropriate way. You should take care of for saving fuel by: Don’t drive aggressively, Drive steadily at posted speed limits, Avoid idling your vehicle, Make sure your tires are properly inflated, Select the right gear, Service your vehicle regularly and much more.

6. Drive less and Use public transports more
If you try to drive less and walk more than it would be great contribution towards saving energy and creating global warming awareness. You should try travel by taking the bus, riding a bike, or walking. Try consolidating trips to the mall or longer routine drives. Encourage car-pooling.

7. Paint your Home according to Seasons
Paint your home a light color if you live in a warm climate, or a dark color in a cold climate. This can contribute saving up to 5000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.

8. Recycle every material
Try not to use products and materials which are not recyclable. Recycling saves energy, landfill space and natural resources. Increase usage of recycled materials such as paper & cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminum, steel & copper. Visit your local recycling center and find out what materials they accept for recycling. For your convenience use plastic bags or totes to store materials for recycling.

9. Eat more vegetarian meals than non-vegetarians
Avoid eating non-vegetarian food as it is not good for human health as well as to the planet. Try to this meal to increase your contribution towards Global Warming Awareness: Nutburgers, Irish Colcannon, Tofu Tamale Pie, Tofu Loaf, Grilled Polenta with Portabello Mushrooms, Vegetable Fajitas and many more.

10. Choose clean Energy Options
If you can choose your electricity supplier, pick a company that generates at least half its power from wind, solar energy and other renewable sources.

None of your suggestions has as much a fundamental and broad impact as to go vegetarian/vegan. Most people don't know the connection between climate change and their meal-plate.
Here are some quotes from two links.

A 2006 United Nations report found that cattle-rearing generated more greenhouse gases than transportation. Former Beatle Paul McCartney is urging the world to go vegetarian in a bid to fight global warming and is surprised more green groups don't promote it.
http://www.reuters.com/article/environmentNews/idUSN1844977620080421

According to The Observer and The Guardian, the UN’’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has estimated that meat production accounts for nearly a fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions. These are generated during the production of animal feeds, for example, while ruminants, particularly cows, emit methane, which is 23 times more effective as a global warming agent than carbon dioxide.One meat-free day a week can help tackle climate change, claims Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the chairman of the United Nations Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC).
Pachauri, who last year earned a joint share of the Nobel Peace Prize, and was re-elected the panel’’s chairman for a second six-year term last week, told The Observer that diet change is important because of the huge greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental problems - including habitat destruction - associated with rearing cattle and other animals.http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/india-news/one-meat-free-day-can-help-tackle-climate-change-pachauri_10093159.html

To go vegetarian is readily available and it is a matter of changing the will and showing love and compassion for saving the planet and our co-inhabitants, the animals. Here are some quotes from two links.
