Ecologist guide to greening your home

Microgeneration is a sticking plaster trying to staunch the bleeding from a severed vein -- it's not impossible that applying a plaster will stop you bleeding to death, but in reality it will only work in a few cases.

I think the starkest example of the fallacy recently has been the "The Ecologist's Guide to Greening Your Home" -- http://www.theecologist.org/Guides/Ecologist_guide_to_greening_your_home... Lots of information about what to buy, but damn all relative context; e.g., turning down the heat by one degree saves about 10% on space heating, which is far more than most urban micro-generation schemes will produce (solar thermal excepted, which is usually 10% to 15% of the total) -- or the fact that your diet in most cases requires a little more energy, and emits much more carbon, than the impact of your home (per person per year).
