As far as you are concerned, what steps do you take to help protect the environment? What are they? How about you ? Are you ready to take action against pollution and to protect the environment ? How ?

I recycle everything, even down to removing the small glassine covers on paper envelops before I put the envelop in the paper recycling bin.
I compost everything possible; since I eat no animal products, that simplifies that.
I buy many of my daily grind clothes from the Second-hand Rose shop in town.
I throw the dirty cat litter into the woods where, I would guess, some animals recycle that as well.
I am torn about buying a new car with better emission quality and gas mileage; my car has only 30,000 miles so will compromise for a few more years.
I rarely joyride and piggyback errands.
I take books, CDs, and DVDs out of the library rather than purcharsing them.
When I do buy books, I get them used online...bad for our lovely little local book store, but again another compromise.
Nature is in danger because of pollution, human waste, greenhouse gases, etc. We must absolutely react and take action : otherwise, the planet will be in danger. Global warming is probably the most important threat.
What can be done? Sure, solutions exist. For example, we should start by not wasting energy.
We can do small changes to our daily routine like switch off the lights when leaving a room, turn off and unplug electronic devices we're not using, use less hot water, buy recycled paper products, avoid packaged products, use public transports, and walk instead of taking our cars whenever we can.
People shouldn't throw away polluting materials.
They should sort their rubbish and reduce their waste.
Last but not least, it would be a good thing to use renewable energy sources, like solar energy or windpower...
And I am ready to take action!

So if the rest of us do most other things and do not use a car why is he so self-righteous? Computers need energy to be produced and to run.
I can't afford solar panels or a wind turbine.
What am I supposed to do with any polluting materials, if I have any?
Perhaps we should aim more at the manufacturers, or the govt. should, because the manufacturers will just ignore us. Import ban on profusely packaged items where the package is 10 times as large as the item. The amount of elaborate packaging that can come from one purchase is crazy! National govt. pressure for sensible and recyclable packaging is another way to reduce waste and resources.

As above, we are really just playing at it because the main countries just counld't give a hoot about polution, they just use window dressing.
