  • It's quite a sad reflection on this country when you learn of less-developed nations doing more to conserve energy:

    Ukraine, which has a population of 50 million, has quickly produced a program to reduce gas consumption. It has set up a new energy-efficiency agency to direct the plan and is pouring government money into efforts to carry it out.
    Georgia, hit with a similar rise in gas prices, has mothballed plans to build new gas-fired power stations. It is going to build a hydroelectric plant instead. Armenia also has ordered up a plan targeting gas consumption.
  • Still think we have the best healthcare system per dollar spent?
