Although global warming is such a formidable threat and may therefore seem beyond our control, there are many things we can do to prevent excess greenhouse gas emission, air pollution, and the increase in climatic temperature! The following sites show how.
Voluntary preventative action is imperative to the wellness of our atmosphere. Unfortunately, many people are either ignorant of the magnitude of the threat global warming poses, are uninformed of how to prevent it, or simply do not care. Therefore, federal enforcement of environmental action is becoming more necessary as the threat increases. The following sites provide information on legislation that has been drafted, considered, passed, or rejected.
