So, we Americans spew 20 tons of carbon emissions per capita each year.

Here's a quick list to help you cut this almost in half (via global green).

That’s right: cut nearly 9 tons from your emissions by doing these ten things.

This is the same group Leonardo DiCaprio decided to work with...among other ways by asking this question on Yahoo! Answers (via ecorazzi):

“What are some simple steps or creative ideas that people can take at home and work to combat global warming?"

He elaborates a little and has, at last count, gotten 1,300 responses. He also directs folks to his video clip on global warming.

The kewl thang about Global Green's list is it shows you precisely how to save what level of emissions. Here's the list; go there for the details.

  1. Drive Less
  2. Tune Up
  3. Drive Smart
  4. Light Up
  5. Recycle
  6. Purchase Green Power
  7. Build Green & Use Solar Power
  8. Turn It Down, Turn It Up
  9. Wash Cool
  10. Store Smartly, Save Money

Check it out and add 'em up for yourself!
