Fantastic Article at treehugger.com

For Saving Energy, Like Real Estate, The Three Most Important Things Are Location, Location and Location
By Lloyd Alter of the Ryerson School For Interior Design

I struggled through writing out a rant today, and in cleaning it up lost all the points I was making on the problems Orillia's previous city council encountered trying to maintain a vibrant downtown as the car culture continued to dominate.

Well, this treehugger article notes:
  • Where you live is the most important determinant of how much gasoline you use;
  • The size and type of unit is the next most important factor;
  • All that green goodness of solar panels and green gizmos are almost unimportant in comparison.
A great article.
I hope everybody who visits my blog takes the time to read it.
