The New York Times published the following today.
To the Editor;
We canít wait for government or industry to finance searches for alternative energy sources. We have to take it upon ourselves as citizens of the earth to act now to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Why canít we drive less, walk more, put out unneeded lights, lower thermostats, and so on, as well as reduce consumption, and reuse and recycle goods?
All it takes is a conscious effort by each of us to begin to slow global warming. Think about it. We can begin to do it now. We donít have to wait.
