There is no single solution to global warming, starting from people at home. Adapting to changes already underway: As the Climate Hot Map demonstrates, the impacts of a warming world are already being felt by people around the globe.

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.
- Wrapping heat and cooling ducts with duct wrap or mastic sealant, insure all ventilation ducts from leeks and wasting more energy.
- Unplugging every electrical device that's not being used, you free yourself of being the victim of vampire energy, in which appliances still consume energy while still being turned off.
- Checking window frames and doors for leeks and installing weatherstrips help keep your home well heated while lessening the consumption of energy.
