It has been awhile since I followed up on my power savings story. Although not so much as a followup, I am glad to see others starting to blog about these issues too. This entry "How much energy do I waste?" is a well written piece and has some good links in too.
Quoted from Kirk McElhearn:
"I feel that these people are aggressive in their attitude of entitlement; as if they can use all the energy they want: who cares about the overall effect that has on others. Are these the same people who drive gas-guzzling SUVs?"
It is time people started taking their energy consumption more seriously.We need to take a moment to get into the habit of turning off electrical appliances, even unplugging them if they won't be used for a few days.
