Lets Save The Planet

Well it seems that after a long time and a great effort from different organizations around the world our leaders (well not all of them) are starting to get the point that Global Climate Change is not a conspiracy theory written by scientists and environmentalists.

There is some hope that we will finally see some real progress soon.

What do you can do ?

First of all become active in your local community, contact your local representatives and tell them your concerns and the need for a real and serious global agreement.

Add your signature at NextGenerationEarth, you will be sending a powerful message to politicians and business leaders around the globe that climate change is a battle for our common future.

And second, SAVE ENERGY !! and if you wish start an "Energy diet"

My wife believe I'm a freak when I hover around the house turning off lights that are not necessary, I'm not going to deny that I freak out every month when we get the electricity bill but on the other hand I've been always convinced that we normally waste a lot of energy, and you don't need to drive in the Vegas strip to realize that.

I recently started to replace many of the old incandescent lamps by compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL), these lamps can save more than 40-70% and while they may be more expensive than the incandescent they are getting cheaper every day and will not only help you reduce your electricity bill, they last longer, and you will be contributing to reduce overall energy consumption.

Check some of the facts at, you will find interesting to learn that if every home in the US replaces one incandescent lamp by a CFL, the effect on greenhouse gases would be equivalent to taking 2 million cars off the road.

It's our planet and it's our responsibility to take care of it.

Our kids and their future generations deserve it
