I often joke about it ... getting warmer does not motivate me to save power, quite the opposite. ;) I do not believe in global warming being mainly caused be men and by whatever (sun for example) it is mainly caused by, I would seriously enjoy more heat from it - writing from Central Europe. ;)

It also depends where the power comes from ... cutting on other harmful gases is OK, but CO2 is not the one we should avoid!

co2 is one to be avoided, but not the only one

but like with most big tasks:
you have to make the first step
and every little bit counts

so don't be lazy and turn off all devices you don't need
instead of a bigger airconditioner beef up the insulation of your hous
put some solar collectors on your roof because the sun shines for free

there is so much you can do today...

CO2 is healthy for the vegetation, all the plants rely on it so what the hell? I am all for saving the planet, not polluting environment, not using rivers for waste dumps, saving endangered species etc... but CO2 is just silly. Even if global warming was harmful (I don't know), CO2 is a very minor greenhouse effect gas, and human produced CO2 is even less significant.
