Great post in GreenBiz this morning about EE and how Americans haven't gotten on board with serious measures at home.  Home energy audits are compared to colonoscopy.  I had to laugh and wanted to share it with everyone.

I would like nothing more than to see our tax dollars used in our own country to reduce our energy use instead of living like pigs and spending them in wars to secure more resources. The Weatherization Assistance program that I am involve with has been berated as a wastefull "entitlement" program that is inefficient, etc, etc.

I am totally ready to educate higher income home owners and move our organization in this direction. I feel the pain. These potential clients need a strong education on saving to investment ratios. Sadly, this will not be a bother to anyone until fuel prices surge. See Europe etc.

 

People will wise up. They will have no choice soon. Educate and wait.

Yeah, I think there's no energy security like having homes and commercial buildings that are energy-wise so we can import less foreign petroleum.  And have less of a need to drill and mine here at home.
