Put your community on a low carbon diet! The Empowerment Institute is mobilizing communities to take action against climate change through its Cool America campaign. Make this year a turning point. For more information listen to "A Practical and Accessible Strategy on Global Warming" airing on radio stations worldwide between January 23 - 29 and available for free streaming on New Dimensions.

To start your own low carbon diet pick up a copy of The Carbon Buster's Home Energy Handbook and learn how to systematically analyze your energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint. The recommendations in the book can save an average family up to $17000 over 5 years!

What measures are you taking to lower your carbon footprint? I'll start - I ride my bike as frequently as I can, and this winter I have finally started riding it year round. This morning it was -4 deg Celsius. Brrr! Tell us what you do in the comments below.
