Better BTU Blog: Global Climate Change Summit Brings Questions of America’s Role in Reversing Carbon Trends:
Great article on the point that no government is leading on sustainability, at least in terms of those countries that count, namely the US, China and maybe India.
It is amazing and surprising that conservation and energy efficiency (EE) efforts don't move forward even without any government assistance or encouragement. A kilowatt or gallon never used is one that never had to be produced, distributed, and consumed. At least up to a point, the costs associated with EE can be very small with a ROI in months, not years. Then those efficiency savings can be realized for years to come... (And oh, by the way, it helps out the environment as well, now and in the future.)
Of course we can do some of this stuff later today or tomorrow. The low-lying fruit would be so easy to start picking at.
Getting started with or without government help (involvement) seems to be the first order of business. Savings this year that will be realized each year thereafter...
... This is a (Christmas) gift that keeps on giving...

'via Blog this'
This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).
