Okay, maybe my relatives are right and I'm turning into a "granola", but I think this climate change stuff is serious business.  Some of you probably agree.
So many people feel completely helpless and ineffective when it comes to doing things to help the planet.  We can also get wrapped up in daily troubles and don't feel like we've got the time or energy.  The fact is that everyone can contribute something, even if it is small.  Change has to start somewhere, and it doesn't look like it is going to be in government or big business.  It's time concerned individuals led by example.
Here are some things, of various scales and difficulties, that you can do to help the planet.  
 
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle    These are the basics
Don't buy bottled water
Use less water (short showers, turn it off while shaving or brushing teeth)
Turn of and unplug electronics while not in use
Consider starting your own organic vegetable garden (If you don't have lawn space, many cities have community gardens you can use for a small fee)
Compost
Educate yourself about environmental issues
If you are in the market for a car, consider a fuel efficient or electric one
Buy local and in season foods
Drive less, use public transport, or carpool
 Harass Inform and involve your friends
Send a letter to your local or state representatives about environmental legislation
Quit smoking
Buy fewer meat or animal products
Support alternative energy research
Use air conditioning less (cover sunny windows with curtains, sheets, or towels instead)
Invest in some solar panels
 Hug a tree
And I'm sure you can find many more to do

You don't have to be a child of Geb or Shu to start making a difference.  Get to it.  Please.
