Use LED light bulbs

LED bulbs offer similar light quality to traditional incandescents, last 25 times as long, and use even less energy than CFLs. Replacing 15 inefficient incandescent bulbs in your home with LED bulbs could save you about $50 per year.

CLIMATE CHANGE'S THREAT TO POLAR BEARS

The key danger posed by climate change is malnutrition or starvation due to habitat loss. Polar bears hunt seals from a platform of sea ice. Rising temperatures cause the sea ice to melt earlier in the year, driving the bears to shore before they have built sufficient fat reserves to survive the period of scarce food in the late summer and early fall. Reduction in sea-ice cover also forces bears to swim longer distances, which further depletes their energy stores and occasionally leads to drowning.
