every little helps. I personally cant afford to do a massive deal - we recycle glass sometimes, dont have the heating on all the time, turn off stuff we aren't using - but i rent a flat so theres nothing we can do to the flat to make IT more efficient, we have a shared garden so really cant do much with it. I fill the kettle with only as much as I think I need and will use special lightbulbs when my stock of non-special ones run out The real problem in all this is the US. They try and force other countries into treaties to reduce CO2 but dont agree to do so themselves. They think it their RIGHT to cheap fuel prices which is useless - what better way of encouraging a fat and lazy nation that making it easier for them not to do excersize? They are the biggest consumers, the most arrogant in terms of recycling and defending how they live, and standard of life almost always means stuff like air conditioning, electrical equipment, # cars per household etc. There is need for some of this I agree, and some of it is really nice, but at the same time there are things that aren't needed and this is what the US government should be trying to curb (hell, higher fuel taxes == more WAR MONEY! YAY!).
