watervole: (Save the Earth)
There' s a very sensible article here looking at what is likely to make a different in carbon terms and what is pure greenwash just designed to make you feel good. 

His approach is very simple. He looks at everything in terms of kilowatt hours.  All forms of energy consumption are measured by the same yardstick.

My favourite quote: Turning phone chargers off when they are not in use is a feeble gesture, like bailing the Titanic with a teaspoon.

But the writer has very positive things to say about electric cars and solar hot water systems. (and pours scorn on roof-mounted windmills)
