Climate change is an urgent issue that requires immediate solutions. That's why I've joined with Al Gore and others across the country and around the world who want to halt global warming.

We're on the verge of being over one million strong and I'm asking you to join us. Please click here today to become part of the solutions to global warming.

If leaders in business and government are going to make stopping climate change a priority, we need to send a loud message that we want action now. That's why I'm asking you to get involved today

Together, we can stop global warming.

Turn Off, Tune Out, Unplug

Many appliances use electricity even when they are turned off. In fact, 25% of the energy a television uses is consumed when it is not even powered on. The only way to be sure your appliance is not using power is to unplug it, or to plug it into a power strip, which you can then switch off. (Power strips do consume a small amount of energy, but far less than the appliances when plugged in directly.)

Here's what you can save by simply unplugging or utilizing a power strip:

Desktop Computer
up to 42 pounds CO2/year

Microwave Oven
up to 72 pounds CO2/year

up to 258 pounds CO2/year

DVD Player
up to 143 pounds CO2/year

Power Tool
up to 39 pounds CO2/year

That's about 550 pounds of CO2 pollution you could save every year by unplugging just these few appliances and electronics in your home.
