You can support the development of clean, renewable energy in a number of ways, depending on where you live.
Here are the two most common ways to make a significant impact:
I Make the energy. You can make energy yourself by using options such as solar energy to produce hot water and generate electricity. Chapter 13 covers other options that you can use to make energy.
I Buy the energy. You can purchase energy from a company that uses low-emission energy sources. Green power can be purchased in most provinces in Canada. Companies also cover 30 states in the U.S., with similar companies across the U.K., and in every state in Australia (see Chapter 18 for Web site resources on green energy providers).

We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
