Posted Tue Dec 2 2008: from Guardian (UK):
How changes in daily routine may become second nature
Before going out you turn off the master switch for all your appliances. Then you climb into your electric car for the drive to work. The roads are noticeably quieter, and there have been studies showing asthma admissions are falling as petrol and diesel cars are replaced.... David Kennedy, the climate change committee's chief executive, said: "Let's not underestimate the energy efficiency that gives you more [savings] than lifestyle change, but there are things that can really make a difference, such as simply switching lights off when you leave the room and turning the thermostat down." There would likely be visible and audible changes: quieter streets, more wind turbines on the horizon, but also, as farmers use less fertiliser, more trout and salmon in rivers, while countryside bird populations should flourish.

Your Quips:
Paul says: "Higher bird populations combined with more big wind turbines delivers new, violent, gambleworthy entertainment and free protein."
Pete says: "Will ya still be able to get babes interested if yer driving an electric car."
