NEWS UPDATE: GLOBAL WARMING’S DAY IN COURT
In what may be the most important environmental case ever to go before the Supreme Court, twelve states, including New York and Massachusetts, are suing the EPA for failing to impose greenhouse gas limits on car emissions as required by the Clean Air Act. This is a case that will surely test the government’s commitment to stopping global warming. To read more about the case, click here.

STOP GLOBAL WARMING HOLIDAY TIPS
With the holidays right around the corner, here are a few smart tips that can help reduce your impact on global warming:

  • Choose energy-efficient LED holiday lights, which use 80% less energy.
  • Select alternatives to wasteful paper gift wrapping — scarves, newspaper, reusable boxes, tins and jars. If you buy paper, always choose recycled and save wrapping for re-use.
  • Give the gift of an experience, rather than material goods, and save resources. Ideas include: theatre and concert tickets; museum memberships; and season tickets to sporting events.
  • Shop early and avoid overnight shipping. Ground shipping saves more fuel than air shipping.
  • Buy cards made from post-consumer recycled paper, or send holiday email greetings.
  • Buy a living tree and plant it after the holidays.
