Global warming has caused serious changes to the planet, such as rising sea levels, extreme weather events, deforestation, disappearance of species... But, as individuals we can slow down global warming by implementing small more sustainable actions within our community.
In WSM, we share our emission reduction experiences with neighbours, relatives, children and friends. Spread the word! Communicating about it is the best way to raise awareness and encourage actual climate action.
World Service of Mercy aims at help improving the living standards of people of different communities and fighting against climate change. This includes running projects for shelter, food and relief assistance for the people in need. And nature and Build a Climate Resilient Future
About daily habits that can be adopted to fight global warming locally, through 6 simple actions that can result in big changes.
Six simple things WSM do to fight climate change Tweet Major actions to fight climate change are:
1. Reduce emissions
Use your car less, whenever possible, instead use sustainable transportation, such as bicycling, or use public transportation more often. In the case of long-distance travel, trains are more sustainable than airplanes, which cause a great deal of the CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. If you're into cars, remember that every kilometer that you increase your speed will considerably increase CO2 emissions and expenses. According to the CE, each liter of fuel that your car uses, equals 2.5 kilos of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
Action 2 to fight climate change: save energ
2. Save energy
Take a look at the labels on your appliances, and never leave them on standby. Always adjust the thermostat for heating and air conditioning. By being careful how we use home appliances, we can save energy and, of course, money at the end of the month
