Take the Pledge for Climate Protection

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Environment and Climate Resource page, and our Organic Transitions page.


Here are 10 vital steps to slow global warming and climate destabilization. Some of these steps may be difficult at first, but all are fun, save money, and offer exercise and social opportunities.

A climate background section follows the Pledge, and next are the steps in greater detail: guided explanations and their benefits to you, society, and our Earth. Our postcard featuring these steps is available: email us to request postcards (tree-free paper; 25 cents each or $14 for 100). I pledge to begin taking as many of the following steps as I can to stave off the worst effects of global warming, and spread the word. In so doing I will cut fossil fuel use. I will do some or all of the following:

1.Cut down on driving my vehicle, or carpool. I will walk or bike, and not buy a car if I do not have one (best of all). I will support and use mass transit. I may work closer to my home. 
2.Cut down on working just for money: I can thereby barter more, and cut down on commuting. 
3.Depave my driveway, or help others' depave their driveways, or depave parking lots, and grow food in depaved land.
