What about incentives to homeowners for acheiving efficiency? Some already exist, but we need them to be larger and easier to obtain. I'm talking about subsidizing solar panels (instead of subsidizing the auto industry) and encouraging people to beef up the insulation in their homes instead of sending our energy usage "through the roof". Incentives to reduce water consumption would also be beneficial to all, because it requires a LOT of energy to process the 4 litres that gets flushed down the toilet when people want to dispose of a single dirty kleenex. I want to collect rainwater to use in the toilets in my home (http://www.hammerboard.ca/viewtopic.php?t=20), but research tells me that it's against bylaws to have water stored above ground level.
