We have a Climate Scientist in our club
Andrew joined us last December, after he had completed a Speechcraft course with our team of trainers. He is a climate scientist and is passionate about spreading information about his specialist knowledge and persuading us to do what we can as individuals to reduce our personal and national carbon footprint.
That’s a lot of hot air
Andrew gave us this fascinating speech on Wed, April 20, 2016. We weren’t surprised at the content of his speech. We were fascinated by his skillful outline of the content. Many members approached him at supper after the meeting. They asked him for more information to try out his suggestions. We didn’t video his speech – what a shame. So we can’t show you the speech, but here is his summary.
Practical ways to reduce our Carbon Footprint
Tip # 1 Get a new luxurious shower head
You can get just the “Oxijet” fitting if you have a shower head you like or get both the Oxijet and the shower head. I bought both.
How does it work?
Tip # 2 Relax while your drive
Imagine you have a juicy orange under your accelerator
Gently squeeze the orange as your accelerate
Look ahead and anticipate the traffic to avoid unnecessary speeding up and slowing down.
Research has shown this can save you 20% of your fuel consumption.
That saves you $$s and saves the atmosphere extra carbon dioxide.
Tip # 3 Sign up to Natural Power
For the cost of a coffee each week you can have electricity from renewable energy such as wind and solar
Follow the Synergy energy saving tips and you can save even more
Thanks to Andrew for these tips.
