What can one person do to avert climate change? The answer is: a lot. This list of 101 suggestions doesn’t begin to exhaust the possibilities; use it as a creative jumping off point and come up with your own ways to make an impact. The unifying themes here are changes in lifestyle that: (1) reduce energy usage and slow down the fires of industrialism; (2) protect and restore the environment so that its climate-stabilizing mechanisms are preserved; (3) increase individual participation in governmental and economic decisions; and (4) facilitate a deep personal commitment to caring for the Earth. The point is not to feel guilty for not doing all 101, but to use this list to empower yourself and your friends to take action. Find one thing you can do, do it, and then find another.

Domes are common public structures, being used in government legislature buildings, sports complexes and religious buildings…even as covers for road salt. As homes, they are less common, although the igloo is a notable exception. And that’s too bad, because domes are incredibly strong structures that enclose a volume of space more economically than conventional architecture that is based on squares and rectangles. In a dome, the roof and exterior walls are integrated into a continuous curved surface, which removes the need for the space- and material-wasting interior support walls and attic. Dome dwellers also enjoy more efficient and less expensive use of heating and cooling resources, since a dome’s decreased surface area allows less heat to escape in the winter and infiltrate in the summer, and air circulates naturally in a round structure.
The Campaign against Climate Change brings people together to push for the urgent and resolute action we need to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate. Philosophy Here in the UK the CCC directed its campaigning efforts for many years against the Bush administration in the US because it was the biggest block on any kind of progress towards such an agreement.
