Carbon Fast for Lent: Lose One Degree

The Second Wednesday in Lent
“Turn your central heating thermostat down by one degree.”

One of things I like about the Carbon Fast for Lent: the daily actions are very do-able — more of a diet than a full-on fast. It’s been crazy cold here, with many days in the negative digits. But I can certainly turn the thermostat down one degree. And so I did.

Today’s mitzvah:
One if by land, two if by sea? Turn the thermo down one degree in cold climates; up one degree if you are lucky enough to enjoy sun and A/C.
