A great piece from The Other 98%. Unfortunately Exxon brought out the lawyers and are trying to stop it.


Energy Savings

The oil platform explosion¬†makes we wonder why I can get a new light bulb (LED) that uses about 1/10th the energy, lasts 40 times as long and over the long term costs about 1/4 of the price of old light bulb (incandescent) but a car’s fuel economy has barely doubled?

I also wonder why the electric companies have great incentives and encourage you to save electricity, think of all of the rebates for energy efficient appliances, yet the best a gas station can do is give you a few cent discount on gas if you use their credit card.
