Just watched "An Inconvienient Truth" and went to the website to see in what areas I can improve in.
I do pretty well, but one area that I don't do, but is suggested, is to unplug electric appliances when not in use because they still draw power when turned off or on stand-by mode.
I was wondering just how much green house gas emmisions are involved in hyrdo-electric power and natural gas heaters that are used in the household and their comparisons to burningfuel for transportation.
It seems to me transportation contributes more to the problem of global warming than hydro based power used in a home.
If my neighbor drives a big truck to work but unplugs all her appliances when she doesn't use them and I ride my bike to work but leave all my appliances plugged in, doesn't my neighbor contribute more to global warming than me?
