VIDEO: Energy & Efficiency, episode 7

Columns & Opinion, Energy & Efficiency, Energy systems

Today I take a look at energy saving light bulbs. Sure, we’ve all replaced our old fashioned coal-powered light bulbs with new, efficient nuclear models to save money and/or the world – but now what? Is that it? Is there no more energy to be saved?

Yes! There is lots more energy to be saved! Allow me to tell you how to reduce your electricity bills further still, thanks to a little invention I’m calling “No Light bulbs.”

I can only apologise for the poor picture quality. It’s not a joke, I just cleaned the lens poorly and left quite a lot of greasy residue on it. The resulting halo effect is quite unsettling. I’ll get some cotton swabs in before next week’s.
