Energy consumption

Fact: On average, America and other industrialized nations consume over two-thirds of the world's total energy. However, rampant use of vital resources by nations around the globe need not continue at present rates.

  • When buying new appliances or electronics, shop for the highest energy-efficiency rating.
  • Switch to compact flourescent lightbulbs. They will keep half a ton of carbon dioxide out of the air over their lifetime, and save you money on your electricity bill.
  • Set heating and cooling temperatures appropriately. If you're cold, wear a sweater. If you're too hot, then wear light clothes. But if you can't take the heat, try an electric fan for cooling off -- they use far less power than conventional air conditioning systems.
