Now i am not going to say negative stuff on what Kandeel said last night regarding us wearing cotton clothing to save energy, or huddle up in a room.
However i will go all constructive on him !
FACT: We dont have enough power generators to create electricity to cover our needs for the next few years
SOLUTION: reduce energy consumption
how can you do that… well in Egypt, we have a lot out dated electronics, you might have the Air Conditioning that looks like that big brown box or as some might like to call it الدولاب … now i am sure that consumes shit loads of electricity, than maybe newer models. Hell even some AC’s might be energy efficient or environmental friendly. What about those nice 80% energy efficient philips lights, what if a house hold changes the lights from el normal bulb لمبة to energy efficient ones. hell if you can afford el philips there are Chinese brands too.
NOW WHAT IF … THE GOVERNMENT AS A SOLUTION SUBSIDIZED THEM ? WHAT IF THE GOVERNMENT REMOVED ALL TAXES ON ENERGY EFFICIENT PRODUCTS ? WHAT IF THE GOVERNMENT SOMEHOW STIMULATED PEOPLE TO BUY THOSE PRODUCTS INSTEAD OF THE ENERGY GUZZLING ONES ?
The house usually has loads of appliances in it, we are talking AC/ Washing machine / dish washer / dryer / tvs / iron and imagine reducing the energy consumption in most of these items ?
The people living in the house will benefit from a cheaper electrical bill. The government will benefit from less load. The environment will be happy ? i dont see anyone loosing here ?
Wouldnt that be a better solution than huddling up in one room wearing cotton ? more practical ?
