Noted thank you Cher. We have solar hot water, solar power. own water supply, composting and fruit trees and we are going to try aquaponics in the very near future. It took us a while to attain this position but we went without a lot of things. With rising prices etc. it is still hard to live. At least we do not have to pay thoughtless governments as much as we used to.

Let's start by not allowing oil, coal and gas exports.

Putting in all new insulation, and installing an attic exhaust fan on the roof has made a big difference in the summer and winter.

Noted. I think the biggest incentive we can use to get more people to be energy efficient is cost savings. In today's world of escalating everything, any little work that can be done that will save makes a difference, and many of these are really simple.

When I bought my first house back in Maine, I bought a 100 year old house that had NO insulation. My furnace ran 24/7. I was heating the great outdoors. The next spring, I had foam insulation put in the walls and the attic floor got fiberglass R17. My fuel bill dropped by 75%. Then I put in a wood burning kitchen cook stove. My heating bill went to zero. I got the wood for free.
