Climate Change General

Not wishing to get political but…..

This was the “great moral challenge of our generation”. Only last year, Kevin Rudd was saying that “to delay any longer would be reckless and irresponsible”.
Who’s delaying now? “What absolute political cowardice” indeed!

You really MUST get yourselves over to GetUp and sign their objection to the shelving of ANY action on Climate Change until 2013!

Climate Change Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency and why you should care

Energy efficiency sounds like a really dry topic but, if you think about it, by ignoring the way you use energy, you could be throwing money away!

Domestic electricity use accounts for 42% of all domestic energy consumption but 83% of domestic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is as a result of our extremely dirty electricity generation using coal especially brown coal in Victoria.
If we can reduce our energy consumption, we stand to save more than just money, we will also reduce our GHG emissions.
