First of all Joe. You can lead by example regarding reducing carbon pollution by turning off your computer and quit writing this blog and turn off all your appliances. Then you can move out of your house, apt. condo whatever it is you live in. Walk to work, naked (cause clothes are carbon). Then once you ponder your situation try to tell me what exactly is the ambient temperature of the Earth supposed to be. Because with out knowing that we do not know what we are deviating from.
