Hold on i have just watched the news.
From what i can gather if we get rid of all electrical things don't have the heating on etc etc it would cut out 2% of these gases and we hope the rest of the world would follow ok fine
Saw that too! The target is a 60% reduction:
How many per cent could you personally cut down on CO2 emissions - realistically?
I have figured out my current "contribution":
- no car: -20%
- exchange conventional light bulbs (as they go) for energy-saving ones: 2%
- But I am afraid I simply could not survive without central heating... or certain electricals, including my computer
oh well, 22% - not very impressive, in fact! :-//
They could use the CO2 emissions argument to minimise the transport of live animals across Europe! Make people consume more local produce that has not been carted from A to B to C...
BTW, I do remember that - due to the oil crisis - back in the mid 70s, Austrians had to select one day of the week they WOULD NOT USE their cars, and had to affix a sticker to their windscreens identifying that specific day. Was that done over here in the UK as well ? Can anyone remember ? THAT would help cut down CO2 emissions as well
(to reduce the respiratory rate to a minimum probably too....
