Trump Antidote: Kick your carbon addiction


Stop oil trains, coal trains, and climate change with the 12-step plan for carbon addicts:

  1. Admit that we all directly or indirectly cause far too much toxic and greenhouse gas emissions due to our fossil-fuel addictions.
  2. Calculate your carbon footprint (about one hour) and sign up for the footprint challenge
  3. Create a plan to halve your household footprint while saving money, within 10 years (or less)
  4. Change your driving and home energy consumption habits (~10% emission reduction immediately for an average household)
  5. Buy or lease a zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) to replace one car (~10% reduction)
  6. Cut your air travel in half (1% to 20% or more)
  7. Upgrade your house envelope (better insulation, doors, windows; ~3-10%)
  8. Buy or lease another ZEV to replace the other car (~10%)
  9. Install an electric heat pump and a heat-pump water heater (~5-10%)
  10. Install solar panels or buy green electricity (~10%)
  11. Eat less red meat.(~5-10%)
  12. At CGCAN.org and at CGCAN meetings continuously share support with others. Celebrate that you’re incrementally killing Big Coal, Big Oil and Big Gas, while decreasing your household emissions faster than most countries!
