    Copper is a diminishing resource. According to New Scientist (May 23, 2007) our world has an estimated 61 years supply of copper left.


    I think this is a best case scenario based on current demand......What happens when we have no more copper?

    Solar panels don't have the power to run an air-conditioner. You can save on heating water but the technology doesn't exist to run HVAC with solar. Also changing from R12 to R22 and now to R410a means a slow progression to less efficient refrigerants. R410a runs at higher pressures which causes more wear and tear on the systems used in HVAC. However the EPA in all it's wisdom has decided that HFCs are less damaging to the environment then CHFCs. But the change means higher costs. And option would be to switch everyone to Geo-Thermal HVAC. Uses less energy.

    One way to save gas and electricity would be to get rid of traffic lights and put in traffic circles. No waiting for lights to change. The savings would be enormous.

    I am pretty sure your second option is a Federal offense.

    Gotta do what you gotta do.

    Pennies will be obsolete soon anyway because of all of the spending in Washington....inflation will make pennies worthless.
