Check out this short video about climate change... don't worry it's not too preachy.
This Sept. 16 image released by NASA shows the amount of summer sea ice in the Arctic, at center in white, and the 1979 to 2000 average extent for the day shown, with the yellow line. Scientists say sea ice in the Arctic shrank to an all-time low of 1.32 million square miles on Sept. 16, smashing old records for the critical climate indicator.

Have you ever heard the terms "GLOBAL WARMING" or "Climate Change"?
Before you think it is some crazy idea that will never happen, look at some of the information that scientists all over the world are saying about climate change.
What simple steps can you take to control your role in global climate change?
1. Turn off lights when you leave a room.
2. Unplug electronics that you are not using, or use a surge protector with a shut off switch.
3. Start a garden at home: learn to grow your own food and compost your food waste. If you live in a city, talk to your building super about a rooftop garden.
4. Use less paper plates, paper cups, and "throw away" items.
5. Take shorter showers to help conserve drinking water.
6. Look at renewable energy sources for your home: Wind, Solar, Geothermal, etc.
