Change your car's A/C refrigerant, help stop global warming

The bad economic news in the country is especially bad in Bakersfield and Kern County, with unemployment rates here still hovering around 15%, significantly higher than the rest of the state and the U.S. Add to that rising prices, a declining stock market, and gloomy predictions for improvement anytime soon, and more and more Bakersfield residents are increasingly turning to do-it-yourself activities rather than paying someone else. For example, people are cutting their own grass, doing their own laundry instead of sending clothes to dry cleaners, and doing their own car repairs.

For those involved with the latter, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) has just announced a way for car buffs here and elsewhere in the state to recharge their air conditioning systems in a manner much safer for the environment. As a result of new Climate Change regulations, ARB, equipment manufacturers, and distributors have come up with a redesigned recharge canister. Featuring a self-sealing mechanism, the new canisters are sold with a $10 deposit, refunded when the empty cans are returned.
