Details

IF YOU DO NOT CARE ABOUT LESSENING CARBON EMISSIONS ......


• Do NOT recycle
• Do NOT use energy efficient lighting
• Buy a 4Wheel drive monster car
• Ensure you have drafts in your home
• Support Coal Fuel for power

DUMMIES ....

Do not recycle under any circumstances!


CARBON FOOTPRINT AWARE ...

Australian government has made it easier for us to recycle and did you know Recycling saves Victoria alone 309,964 tonnes of greenhouse gasses each year! These savings are the average amount of energy used by around 155,000 households a year!

DUMMIES ...

Use higher wattage lights in their homes, an average room uses a single 60 or 100 watt incandescent bulb, but why not install 10 x 50 watt down lights and consume 500 Watts instead! Also Halogen bulbs only have a 2000 hour lifespan so more manufacturing is required to replace the frequently dying bulbs which means more beautiful carbon emissions for the manufacturing procedures and transport of the product.


CARBON FOOTPRINT AWARE ...

Use LED bulbs as they only consume 3 watts, such low wattage they hardly produce 1kg of greenhouse gas if operating for a whole year.

DUMMIES ...

With many Sports and Four Wheel Drive vehicles available now with 5 or 6 litre V8 engines you can consume more petrol or diesel than any other car on the road! This way you can fill up more regularly by burning more fuel and by traveling EVERYWHERE via your huge petrol guzzler you can emit 2.4 Kg of Greenhouse Gas per every litre you burn! Average V8’s burn up to 15L/100kms, some 4 cylinders only burn 4.5L/100kms.

CARBON FOOTPRINT AWARE ...

With the lovely Australian climate a great deal of people use public transport to travel to work or walk their kids to school.

Why not consider purchasing a smaller 4 cylinder car, they only burn 4.5L/100kms.

DUMMIES ...

Be sure you have large gaps underneath your doors and open fans to your ceiling so warm air can escape and cool air is allowed into your home, in doing so you will need to increase your thermostat by 5 – 10 degrees to ensure you stay slightly comfortable. An extra 1° difference in temperature between indoors and outdoors can add around 10% to heating or cooling costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

CARBON FOOTPRINT AWARE ...

Companies are introducing draft proofing materials and better insulation products to help reduce your heating needs.

Be sure your power is sourced from Coal Power plants, electricity sourced from renewable sources like wind and hydro power is referred to as green energy because unlike coal-fired power, its production does not generate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

SO WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE?
