Comments texted to MPR:
I fight global warming by eating vegetarian dinners three times per week, walking or biking for short errands, and we’re installing solar panels on our house this spring. -Alex, Red Wing, MN
I do my part to reduce emissions by taking the bus. I say, come on people, its so easy and reduces my stress level because I don’t have to worry about rush hour. -Bryan, Minneapolis, MN
I do all the recycling for my three jobs. I switched to a better gas mileage car, we turn our heat off during the day, and i try to make sure we all turn the lights off and shorten our showers! Every little bit helps! -Julie, Howard Lake, MN
You forgot the word “relevant”. People’s actions are meaningless unless they are owners of airplane fleets. -Mookie, St. Paul, MN
My husband and I recycle, purchase mostly organic, locally-grown food items and try to lower our energy consumption by using LEDs throughout our home. We also unplug electronics before we leave for work in the morning. -Russ and Tina, White Bear Lake, MN
I’m lobbying members of Congress and riding the bus to work more often. -Mike, St. Paul, MN
I’m staying poor…buying necessities, used clothing, used furniture, entertainment. I’m walking, biking. -anonymous
