Yahoo Going Green


Yahoo has started a new drive - Green. What it does actually, it asks the user to create a plan he/she can execute on a daily basis to help in keeping the CO2 level low on the earth. The plans are very easy to perform but in long run will definitely help in keeping the planet green. Some of them are like -

  • Turn your heater thermostat down 2 degrees in winter and up 2 degrees in the summer.
  • Drive less aggressively -- don't accelerate and brake rapidly.
  • Drive the speed limit.
  • Keep the tires on your car adequately inflated. Check them monthly.
  • Unplug electronics when you're not using them.
  • Turn out the light when you leave the room. so on and so forth...

There are lot many action plans one can plan for himself and can help save the earth.

Why CO2?
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main greenhouse gas behind global
warming. Using fossil fuels like oil, gas, and coal sends lots of CO2 into the atmosphere, and this traps heat.
At last somebody is thinking about creating the awareness for making the earth Green. Thanks to Yahoo! latest effort.
