In Tim Flannery's fine recent book, The Weathermakers, he lists 11 Realistic Ways You Can Help Reduce Global Warming. I've just done another one of them - I rang our power company and got all our gas and electricity changed to Green Power. If you're in Australia, you might like to click on the picture above and find out more, or overseas you could contact your power company and ask - please consider...
