I attended a talk, "Linking Climate Change to Engergy Use and Transport", by Anthony Tan of CETDEM when it was conducted at Bandar Sungai Long Buddhist Society.
The awareness he instilled in me makes me more conscious about not leaving electrical equipment on "ready" mode. I also look at lightings and energy consuming items in my house differently. While working on the "Energy Audit Form" provided by Anthony, I was very drawn to websites highlighting energy and cost saving consumption ideas. Following are some useful websites that I have discovered:
Saving Electricity by Michael Bluejay
Lighting and Daylighting by EERE (Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, USA)
If you find the information from these US websites interesting, then join Anthony for his Malaysian views in his next talk:
“CLIMATE CHANGE, ENERGY CONSUMPTION & TRANSPORT: The Linkages.”

Does it matter whether you support and participate in such events? Severn Cullis-Suzuki has the answer for you 15 years ago, when she was speaking for E.C.O., The Environmental Children's organisation.
