Half the week left.

Hi my blogger community, I am so tired and it is only half way through this week. I am sitting at my desk again staring at my laptop and my eyes have gone all crossed eyed. I was thinking last night how great it would be to just sleep in for like another four hours or so, but then a thought if I did I could loose my job.

OK this is how it goes. For the last couple of weeks I have been thinking on how we as humans can impact on the environment a little less. I came up with a solution, we just stop breathing and there is your solution to global warming. No humans no global warming. Ha Ha Ha.....! Only joking, I think. Now back to the point look around your house hold and think of what appliances use the most electricity and try and come up with solutions to maybe minimise their usage or invent something that will save electricity.

Here is one the Geyser. The geyser is one of the biggest contributors to our electricity bill each month. Approximately 30% of our electricity bill is from our geyser. Why is this so high? This is because of the heating element that is found inside your geysers, all appliances that use a heating element consume the most amount of electricity.

So here is the challenge I pose to the blogging community. Take the geyser for example and look at how it functions and try and think of solutions to minimise the use of your geyser to save electricity or come up with something completely different , its your world to decide.

Blog soon.....

  1. Twice in two days! impressive ;-)

    You obviously missed my rant about the correct spelling of "lose" while you were away.

    There are loads of geyser solutions - bath in cold water (does not appeal), don't bath at all (appeals even less), buy it a blanket and tuck it in nicely, get a solar geyser, get a geyser timer, insulate your hot water pipes...

    I must send LiveStrong here - this is his field.

    Btw, do you know anything about mining health and safety?
