David Suzuki On Saving Energy This Winter
November is here. And as we’ve been saying all week, it’s time to fire up the furnace. And, according to the David Suzuki Foundation, keeping your home warm will probably be more expensive this year.
Oil costs more than $90 a barrel, and it’s still climbing. Some economists say it could break the $100 mark before spring. That’s reason enough to cut your energy use. Add Environment Canada’s prediction of a warmer-and-drier-than-normal winter, and you have another reason. By cutting your energy use, you’ll be tackling climate change. The less energy you use, the less carbon dioxide you produce. And carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas making the planet warmer, which is why forecasters expect a warmer-than-normal winter. Using these ideas will keep your home just as warm for less money. And you’ll be getting another kind of warm glow - the kind that comes from knowing you’re making a real difference for the planet’s future.
