Energy Vacation - The Zen of a Reduced Ecological Footprint

September 5, 2005 09:16 AM - Michael G. Richard, Ottawa,

"This fall, plan a weekend, or two consecutive days and nights as an "energy vacation". Start upon waking Saturday and go until waking on Monday morning. During your "vacation", turn off your thermostat, refrain from using any lights and use electricity only sparingly - i.e. to keep food from spoiling. No driving. No TV. And, yes not even any blogging or 24 hour news updates."
