 Endangered Planet The world as we know it is in grave danger because of among other things, global warming. We are all responsible. What can we do? I am not an expert, but some things can be done every day : Whenever possible, use public transport or practice car pooling. Save water, lower the heat when you leave your home, do not leave lights or household appliances unnecessarily lit (tv, computer...),  emphasize fair trade. On the net there are many sites that give advice. Just type a few keywords in "Google", read the articles and above all let's practice!

Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
