Abstract
Did you know that there are six areas of your life in which you can take smart, feel-good actions that will save you money while helping the environment. Some are things that you can do inside your home, others are outside in your yard, when you're at the store, while you're on the road, and even when you're considering major investments. In fact, there are things you can do anywhere and everywhere. These climate smart money-savers will reduce your use of energy and the resulting emissions of carbon dioxide--a major contributor to global warming--and other atmospheric gases that trap the heat of the Earth. Even if you do only about one-third of the actions on this list, you can reduce your emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide by 12,280 pounds per year. Today, the United States pumps more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than any other country in the world. Each of us contributes about 22 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, whereas the world average per capita is about 6 tons. The good news is that there are many ways you and your family can help reduce carbon dioxide pollution and improve the environment for all of us.
