Critical Commentary

"What Can I deposit ?

You can report ANY kind of energy that you save, big or small. Some examples of energy include: buying a hybrid or electric car, carpooling, riding your bike or walking instead of driving, replacing light bulbs with ENERGY STAR light bulbs, install a programmable thermostat to manage your heat and cooling efficiently, turn off the lights when you walk out of a room, lower the thermostat on your water heater to 120 degrees and many more.

Why Do It?

Preserving life is a Faith based action. We cannot preserve our own lives or the lives of others at the current rate that Climate Change is increasing. Therefore, reducing your personal energy use is an action on a moral and faith problem. By filling out this form, you are contributing to scientifically verifiable information and contributing to The Earth’s bank account for keeping us alive.

Reporting of Carbon Savings for a Livable Future

Please report your actions to save carbon emissions and we will convert the actions to pounds of carbon saved and add those totals to our Carbon Savings Bank. Results will be announced at the next Faith and Energy Action Team Meeting. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!!!!"
