1st one energy saving lightbulb, then 234. we're always hearing that we need to save energy. energy light bulbs can indeed save a lot of electricity and money to at least 100 years a year. but then we use one of the trips in a rental car, our, my little splurge. this one also uses electricity. energy economics, expert cloudy, a campus understands the dilemma. saving energy is a challenge because how can i finally learn to save more energy with ms bond in the past? what you're experiencing is known as the rebound effect. you work hard to save energy, then you have more disposable income, which you spend on more energy. we have to counteract that with targeted policies. i could see it sounds like a carbon tax for example, designed as an incentive to reduce energy use. that's yes, this is my boiler. it's

a source of heat that relies on natural gas and food. smith. gov on i don't have to pay a carbon tax for every ton of carbon dioxide and that i am made with this heater, but it costs me 125 years a year. gets kids with germany and now has a carbon tax. so we're hitting people's pocket books. why aren't businesses and the super wrench mean furnace instead of the little guy? glad it's unfair. it's s my get a, this was a hi. first of all, it's fair that those who inflict more climate damage pay for that i had high earning household have a bigger carbon footprint. they drive more cars, live in bigger apartments, and use more fossil and heating fuels. so they have to pay a higher price on this affair. it would be unfair if low income households had to pay disproportionately more without getting relief targeted and for it's like a climate bonus or other program would be best failure. even more important is the

promotion of energy saving measures. for unfortunately, a little is being done there and last lie. this will be an issue. worldwide, we need more focus on saving energy. of every kilowatt hour that isn't produced is what helps to climate most. and that needs to be emphasized why is so little being done to conserve energy in a foreign bond, eating energy has never really been a popular topic for politicians, because it's about creating incentives to use. and it's always easier to stand in front of a natalie inaugurated wind turbine and to take measures that really save energy. and so 5 and power guzzling sectors like the steel industry are rarely incentivized to cut their usage. instead, they put the responsibility on politicians who pass it on to consumers. it's a global trend. so my invest and also for from the research shows that this is widespread is it's a p r campaign on the part of lobbyist designed to ship responsibility away from

company and pass it on to consumers. but consumers can't reduce societies, energy use on their own without other measures. companies and politicians often try to avoid the subject. but more and more people understand that something has to change and they're ready to politicians who need to catch up on a ticket. i think there's too much pressure on us consumers, but we all have to take responsibility. that's why my new motto is use energy don't waste it. a clear message that certainly saving energy at an individual level can make a difference. but will that be enough? when it comes to conserving resources, perhaps what we really need to do is to think big our shocking energy wasting habits. what are our biggest sin?

take an average city in northern europe. we'll call it north town. let's look at a typical family. it's early in the morning and the children are already streaming the film. the why fi router is always on, even when it's not in use. there's no stand by mode. the device uses around 12 kilowatt hours a month. that's about the same as a modern energy efficient refrigerator. billions of kilowatt hours a wasted around the world, out of convenience, and the desire to always be on line. meanwhile, the children's father has clocked in for a shift at the factory, a paper mill. the production process gives off hot air which rises unused to the ceiling. that energy could be used more effectively for heating all over the world . companies avoid investing and such changes because they usually only pay off after 5 years. ah, analysts say industry has the greatest untapped potential for saving energy. the

children's mother worked at a company that uses cloud services on the internet. they require huge server farms which also produce a lot of heat that goes unused. this would actually be enough to heat an entire apartment building. at the end of the day, the family sits down for an evening meal. the weather is cold, so the heating is on. in north town, around 30 percent of all the energy use goes into heating. that's largely because most building aren't properly insulated better insulation can save the family up to 70 percent on their heating bills. and that's just one typical family. the whole of north town to save a lot of energy. so it's clear, we have to rethink our habits from the ground up literally not just what's in our homes, but what they're made out of building from natural materials could be part of the

solution. amberlynn is playing host to a growing number of buildings made of wood report with doing that they have nothing to do with the story. the story is about construction size, concrete buildings, and the hopes and dreams of people living in concrete building. maybe it's far, it is a remark. there is a connection. after all that might explain why would is the fashionable construction materials. it's those almost 20 percent of new builds in germany are made of wood. you know, it's just about anybody who enters a home made of wood is almost always overwhelmed by its quality and atmosphere. not the theatre the novel, wendy. and if you go into a newly built wooden house,

times more c, o, 2 emissions than commercial aviation in $100.00. 19 another human report says construction and building usage of a source of 38 percent of global c. o 2 emissions concrete is the default construction material, at least for large scale projects. an entire new concrete causes going up in a district of berlin. only one building currently under construction will be mostly made of wood. only foundations and staircases will be made of concrete architect, sorry, show robbie has been working with wood for well over a decade indefinite. busy if you knew you were definitely pioneers and such, we also suffered. we had to overcome many obstacles that we met with a lot of resistance from the authority. and we had to assemble a team of experts and of course, convince our clients the property owners to begin with,

1:55 pm
it's about living in a neighborhood in a community. if you live in a project like this, you have to have the right attitude to wood as well because it lives and moves and creek. you have to be able to and want to deal with that, playing back to build with timber, you have to cut down trees, how eco friendly is what we said and he shouldn't just chopped down and tie as far as so they've gone forever. we need to use the resources we have in germany and central europe and sell tree selectively. importing timber from further afield would be less sustainable. construction. whoa, whoa, site in downtown been in but if all goes to plan, wouldn't skyscrapers should be standing by 20. ah. shows, consulting resources and living. the good life can go hand in hand. that's all we
