It has been made clear to myself and others over the years that it has become a badge of honor for some people if they are seen to like to waste energy.
I can see how this is a bit like being able to waste money, in other words to show how well off they are.
It is partly that I guess, however when it comes to energy conservation, as it were, it has moved into the political sphere; Which is I guess tplot for everything. But with saving money, which is what energy conservation is, you would have thought this was something that transcended politics. Well, you would be wrong. In fact, even the way 1 phrases things will guarantee what genre of response you will get from odd people on an issue, but for example, the word ‘conservation’, in this context would only make people focus on that word, in addition to some would guess it was a fantastic thing, in addition to others a terrible thing for that reason. But no, if you were to rephrase it by saying energy saving tips, now that way you get a more universally positive response. If you were to bring up new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning technology, in addition to then talk about the environment, you would get a mixed response from the wider public. But if you were to bring up new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning technology in the context of what Heating in addition to Air Conditioning providers see as the future of their industry, again, you would see the half or so of folk who didn’t like what they thought your train of thought to be the first go around, this time everybody would want to hear what else you had to say. In this way you could say lots of things or almost everything is a minefield this week.
