Other stuff
Authored by: Anonymous on Oct 06, '07 09:26:51PM

In our household, not only do we switch off the DSL router and network printer when we're not using them, we leave the toaster oven and µwave switched off for the same reason (and when they're on they flash 12:00). We live in a desert climate, so hot water comes through the cold pipe -- the heater runs, but only as a backup for chilly days, i.e. < 75˚ F. (I've worked it out that it would be more wasteful to switch it off and on). What else? We seldom use the alarm clock, because the sun wakes us up in summer, and the pre-dawn chill in winter. This is more regular than clockwork, natch.

Yeah, it sounds like a lot to do, but if you give up one thing at a time, it's pretty easy. Just like the vegan diet, which, one of these days will save your climate-changing butts.
