Rammed earth homes may have over 18-inch, thick walls that are made from a comcination of dirt, sand, cement and water. Energy conservative, rammed earth homes haverepparttar appearance of bungalow-style charm and help keeprepparttar 110116 house warm in winter and cool inrepparttar 110117 summer. Additionally, rammed earth homes may last hundreds of years.

Why build an earth home? Earth homes conserve energy, and in most cases are easier to maintain and can endure for years to come. An excellent site to visit on earth homes: www.hobbithomes.ca This particular site even has a recipe for building your own "cob" earth home, and other projects as well.

As we embark on a strange, new age and global warming continuously onrepparttar 110118 rise, doesn't it make sense to construct your new custom home as an earth home?

Enquiring at local charities like friends ofrepparttar earth or Greenpeace, ask them what you can do, ask for leaflets on how you can change your electricity bill. Enquire about energy tips and how to make a difference in your own home, all of which is free. Spend some time, showing your children what they can do, get them into routinerepparttar 110115 same as you. This problem of global warming wont get into peoples minds until it happens to them. But its happening already. Ice-caps will be melting causing flooding, destroying homes and livelihood. Killing people alongrepparttar 110116 way. One day it could be on your doorstep and by not doing anything it could happen to you.

Imaginerepparttar 110117 radiation fromrepparttar 110118 sun, ifrepparttar 110119 ozone layer disappeared. Increases in skin cancer. You could get it, and then youd be thinking that I should have done something to help.

There is going to be a point where were not going back at all, it will get torepparttar 110120 stage thatrepparttar 110121 o-zone layer will break and disappear and we wont be able to fix it. Its a horrible thought but we need to get of our backsides and do something. A tree a day creates more our way.

Listen torepparttar 110122 words ofrepparttar 110123 wise. If you were planning on a holiday in 3 months. And you wanted a really great holiday, youd start saving now! Sorepparttar 110124 more you save now,repparttar 110125 more of a great holiday youll have. But if you left it torepparttar 110126 last minute to save money youd have a very bad holiday, not being able to do anything at all. The same with this planet. Starting now, well have more of a chance at savingrepparttar 110127 planet, than just forgetting about it.

Some haverepparttar 110128 ideal that they live each day as is comes, fair enough, butrepparttar 110129 planet doesnt. Its trying to look after itself. Its alive, it grows trees, provides water and minerals for all of us to live. We knowrepparttar 110130 words Dont biterepparttar 110131 hand that feeds us so why are we taking big chunks out ofrepparttar 110132 hand?

A planet that so eagerly gave us life, is being killed by its creations. So if volcanoes erupt and destroy towns, or water fills homes, or carbon dioxide bleachesrepparttar 110133 air, we cant blamerepparttar 110134 planet, because weve done it and made it happen.

Show some respect and dont drop litter. Bins are made, so you can put rubbish in them, right? How would you like someone to come just drop all there rubbish in your bedroom? It would be smelly and messy. Believe when I say, you can make a difference. Yeah yeah you say. To climb a wall, you have to start fromrepparttar 110135 bottom. Our technologies are ever growing, but weve got to be careful, one day all what I have said, will happen, then what will you as a single person do? You on your own cannot fixrepparttar 110136 world in one day, its a combined effort. I know Im trying, so must you!!

Desirable interest in writing articles that are deep in passion about topics I love, whether it be music, enviornment etc. What you read is what you read, what you see is what you get!. I always carry my motto in my articles of "A Smile a day attracts more your way". One thing I enjoy is empowering people to there limit. The best way to show the world what you know is to WRITE right?
