Environment

Global warming. Ozone depletion. Smog. Water Pollution. Disappearing rainforests. Nuclear waste. The problems faced by our Earth are monumental. Humans set about to alter the environment thousands of years ago, and with today's fossil fuels and chemicals, the damage has been great. The Earth's resources are rapidly depleting and many people do not have access to safe drinking water. While not all of the destruction is reversible, there are solutions to some environmental problems.

What you can do

There are many simple ways you can contribute to the health of the environment: conserve water; save electricity; recycle paper, glass and aluminum; and carpool to work. You can organize a cleanup of your neighborhood, a park, a beach or other public property. Environmental Defense's Get Green site explains how to "drive greener" and "reduce, reuse, recycle."




You can even do something to save the environment in other countries. The Rainforest Action Network suggests writing to businesses that are harming the environment. The Activist Toolbox explains how to start your own grassroots campaign.

Write to your elected officials to express your opinion on government environmental programs. See E-mail Washington to find addresses for your representatives.

Organizations

Many groups work hard to conserve the Earth.
