5. Does reducing the size of our footprint necessarily mean reducing our quality of life?
Many folks can't afford solar panels or a new hybrid car — and newly produced items like those can actually add to a personal carbon footprint, because of the energy and resources needed to make them. But there are simple, [ constructive ways to reduce your carbon shoe size without the big price tag. Lisa Wise, executive director of the Center for a New American Dream, says everyday choices and
actions can make a huge difference: 1. Buy organic and local. 2. Pay attention to packaging. 3. Ditch bottled water. 4. Energy-proof your home. 5. Switch water heaters to vacation mode. •The Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. It seems like something from a kid's sing-a-long, but sometimes we lose sight of just how much we buy. Try buying less, and reusing and fixing things when you can instead of buying new. And for a lot of people, recycling is as easy as rolling the trash bin to the curb. Just remember to do it at work, too. ]

How much would american save if they used less carbon emission around the state?
Weegy: Any serious effort to control the future emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will require international cooperation. In order to protect the ozone layer, an agreement to phase out most uses of CFCs was reached in 1987. [ In many ways, this agreement was much easier than the kinds of agreements that will be needed to control carbon dioxide emissions to slow climate change. CFCs play a key role in only a few parts of the economy. It has been relatively easy to develop affordable substitutes. The "world environment summit" held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992 reached a much looser agreement on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Nations pledged to work to reduce their emissions. While the wording is vague, and there are no legally binding obligations, there is now an international framework for monitoring and reviewing progress towards reducing emissions. ] (More)
