Reason #6: The “Zero Carbon Plan” -The average family is responsible for 5 tons (10,000 pounds) of carbon emissions per year. You CAN make a big difference.

One of the reasons that people feel overwhelmed by climate change is that they don’t think they can make a difference, don’t know what to do, and think it will cost too much to eliminate their carbon footprints.

You’ve got better things to do with your time, things that are more suited to your personality and expertise.  

Once I’ve shown you how to analyze and strategize your clean energy systems, I’ll show you how to energize and eliminate  the ~90% of your greenhouse gas emissions that are from your energy consumption. 

This is as close to sustainability heaven as you’ll ever get: your electricity, heating, cooling, cooking and transportation will be coming from sustainable energy sources. The technology is mostly solid state, has almost no maintenance, and – depending on your choice of financing – will either completely eliminate your energy expenses,  or will save you money while you make a positive environmental impact. 

Almost every other approach will suggest that you do everything by yourself, or with only one piece of the puzzle. With the AWESome EarthKind Energy system, you’ll have a customized clear path toward a zero-carbon life that suits your family’s unique situation.

You can try to do it by yourself, will tell yourself that you will do the research and figure out the actions by yourself.  But most people will find that they just don’t have the time, interest, and expertise – and you’ll keep on doing what you’ve always done.

Of course, other recommendations will sound rational and logical, and you’ll probably nod your head telling yourself that you will get more disciplined, will make the time, and will learn about the technology and options. But the reality is that you will do the things that you were born to do and not the things that someone else tells you that you need to do to create a sustainable clean energy lifestyle. And your carbon footprint – and energy expenses – will stay the same.

So, give into your own nature and choose a path that lets you quickly and effectively learn what you need to and empowers you to take quick, effective action. 

And there’s more: you’ll feel happier, more energized and more fulfilled because you’ll be making an impact instead of feeling like you can’t do anything that will make a difference.

Do the core things that you were born to do instead of laboring under some self-induced guilt trip about the things you “should” do. As someone once said: “never should on yourself”.
