For our class of Climate Change we are planning to take a picture that shows the interaction of nature with people in a good environment and we need some innovative and original ideas for the picture. For example in what places we can take it, or what things could be our subject in the picture

Save hundreds of gallons of gasoline

I was recently stuck in a traffic jam heading into the Lincoln Tunnel, travelling eastbound from NJ to NYC. When I was stopped for more than a minute or two, I shut off my engine. When the traffic started to move again, I discovered that I did not have to turn my engine back on because the incline of the road, in the last mile leading to the tunnel, is steep enough so that when I simply let off my brakes, my car began ...more »

Make simple living seem like a Cool idea

Create a game (for all ages) where you compete to use as few resources as possible, and enlist some popular recognizable faces to help promote it. A few opportunities for a younger person to experience actively reducing resource use will get them thinking and creating on their own. At our house, we play "living at sea on a sailboat", so we think of how much water and electricity we use, and how to make healthy dried food ...more »

URBAN SPRAWL

Provide awareness to consumers who buy homes in cleared land that is not in proximity to established infrastructure. Building roads to desolate areas is so detrimental to our planet in so many ways. It's so prevalent in Central Florida where developers rule.

Reuse Styrofoam peanuts

These take forever to degrade - like almost never. What if we had enclosed areas on the ocean where they are floating on the water - in a net so that ocean life and birds can't eat them, but they reflect back the heat that the ocean normally absorbs. We could put these on land as well. As long as they are contained by a net, they will help reduce climate change. Even a little helps when everyone's ideas are adopted.

White trash bags

Right now - most trashcan sized liners and leaf bags are black. They should be white so they reflect the sun's heat back off the planet. I'm thinking of hundreds of thousands of these bags at the dumpsites - all black and all absorbing heat into the earth because black absorbs more heat. If they were all white, they would contribute a little to the reduction of global warming.
