You will notice that …

by Mark R

There is some commercial that says: “We are a nation of consumers, and there is nothing wrong with that”. Every time I hear that, I can’t help but think: “yes there is, consumers use up energy, and we shouldn’t use up all the energy in the world!” After all, every home has several outlets that do nothing but suck up a lot of power and increase the consumers’ bills.
