Untapped Energy Source?
I have been an advocate of energy efficiency for a long time now.
Time has a recent article that clarifies the distinction between efficiency and conservation. The latter is doing less with less and efficiency is doing the same or more with less......which means that there is no need to sacrifice to save.
We don't have to discover more oil in Alaska or offshore. All we have to do is be more conscious of ways we waste and stop it, or replace it with more efficient ways.
I am about to replace an old refrigerator I have that was in the house when we bought it. I will cut the electrical usage from one of my home's biggest energy consumers by 2/3's.
Give the article a read, I think you'll get some ideas too.
