The critical importance of fixing Climate Change…

What can we do about climate change before it is too late? It is a very difficult question but many things can be done now. One of the things that many people can do is to contact (in the US) Vivent or Tesla and have a solar system put on their roof. There is no cost to the homeowner and you get electricity in your home for less than you pay the power company. Telsa and Vivent don’t have to transmit power over vast distances. That helps reduce the impact of your house at a very low cost overall to you. I would recommend if your neighborhood has an HOA that you check with the HOA before installing Solar. Many have rules against Solar Arrays, but the number of states that do not support those rules is growing!

The other thing you can do is a wind turbine, but there isn’t a company that does wind turbine leasing options today like Viivent or Telsa (formerly Solar City) does for rooftop solar!. You can also check and see what the Transactive Energy laws are in your country. If they don’t exist today, then vote for politicians that are aware of and willing to propose Transactive Energy laws where you live. TE or Transactive energy allows you, as a homeowner to produce more energy than you need and have the power company distribute that energy to your neighbors. It reduces the cost of your electric bill, and helps your Nembhard’s by producing power at a much lower rate for your neighbors to use! A win-win for your neighborhood.

I talked before about watching for vampires. That is an appliance that is on all the time. Those appliances waste a lot of power. Many Virilians mentioned that they unplug appliances when they do not need them! But there are simple things you can do. Plastic bags at the grocery store or your local market are something you can cut down on. Many people use reusable grocery bags. But if you have to get plastic, that is ok, use the bags for something else! The paper bags decay quickly but it still has a net-zero overall value, as you have to cut down trees to make paper bags! Reuseable bags get used 20, 30 or 40 times and if you can, that is a great way to reduce!

There are few birds in the US now; one of the big reasons is climate change. So let’s help this Cardinal have a better winter but making things a little better in the climate! Everyone can help!!!
