I suggest you... Develop solar power rather than electricity, for homes and businesses. Create jobs to make it happen. This would decrease our need for black coal, which is not good for the environment. It would also increase jobs.
Require apartment complexes to have gardens, started and maintained by their residents. Anyone who participates gets money off their rent every month. If they donate the food to charity or to less able bodied residents, they get more money off their rent. If they plant something illegal, they get evicted.
Let people work at home rather than in the office. This would decrease gas usage and power usage.
Hire people with disabilities. This would increase our work force productivity and put people to work so they are less dependent, more independent.
