Go the next step after watching Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' or reading Tim Flannery's 'The Weather Makers'

Today most people realise they should do something about their own personal greenhouse gas emissions. In fact there are lots of people willing to tell you what to do. However there is very little information about how to do it. House Taming, How to reduce Greenhouse Gases in comfort is a book which gives you the how as well as the what.

It is clear to most of us that our earth is going through a warming phase due to the emission of greenhouse gases. The easiest thing most people can do to reduce greenhouse gas emmissions is to reduce household energy use. This book is about what to do to reduce your household energy use and how to go about doing that. The point is that you don’t have to wear a hair shirt and not bathe for three months to make a difference. I give you the knowledge so you can decide how to best reduce your energy use to fit with your lifestyle. I give plenty of low or nil cost tips to reduce energy use and increase comfort. If you have more money available I show you how you can save even more energy. I give you the information to decide which ideas are appropriate for you.

Reduce: Increase:

Your energy use depends on the particulars of your house and lifestyle. So general advice on what to do doesn't necessarily reduce your Greenhouse Emmissions cost effectively. That is why you need 'House Taming'. This book helps you to decide what to do and how to do it. Think of 'House Taming' as the operating manual for your house. The book has troubleshooting information and other features you would expect to find in an operating manual. It covers all the main energy users and greenhouse gas generators in the home, including heating, cooling, hot water, lights, clothes washing, drying and ironing, standby losses etc..
