Live Earth Concert

I’d like to move my attention from Real Estate to life and the planet that we ALL live on.

On 7/7/07 Al Gore, Kevin Wall, and a whole slue of entertainers on every continent brought us the Live Earth concert. Finally….. a big enough voice for us to stop and listen to the climate crisis. Maybe now we can focus on a common good for all people on this earth. No matter what age, race, color or political affiliation. This is about ALL of us!!!!

So let’s all work together and make an effort to change our ways. I’m talking small changes that will make a major difference! Listed below are just a few things that each of us can do to combat global warming.

Refill water bottles
Change all your light bulbs to CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) bulbs
Unplug your chargers when not in use
Shut down computers instead of putting to sleep
Use less paper products
Turn your air conditioner up 1 degree
Turn your heat down 1 degree
Buy hybrid vehicles
Check your tire pressure
Plant trees
Car pool
Take shorter showers
Turn water off while brushing your teeth or brush your teeth in the shower

After watching Live Earth do you think millions of people will change the bulbs in their homes to CFLs? Will they shut off the lights and appliances when they're not using them? I believe they will. I know I will!
