Today's Telegraph has this bit of news about a plan in Britain to tax homes which are not properly insulated: Link. This is something that this blog wholly endorses - homes that are not properly insulated invariably become energy-wasters when either heating or airconditioning are used. This is a measure that would deter this kind of unintended wastage. And, of course, most countries offer tax breaks for making homes more energy-efficient. There's no reason to sit back and warm one's cushions if one's home is energy inefficient / old / in need of upgrades. Way to go, Britain!
