I think energy efficiency will catch on in the business world, because it makes such good business sense even without the environmental benefits. That's a place where targeted education (at facility managers and purchasing departments, for example) can make a difference, I think.

But for consumers, I don't think it's going to happen. If I had a few billion dollars, I'd set up a program to remove every refrigerator, clothes washer, air conditioner, and furnace or boiler from American households and replace them with the latest ENERGY STAR models. Most people just aren't going to make energy efficiency improvements on their own without interventions like this. And I don't think education is going to get them to act; people don't think the same way businesses do, they have other priorities.

I have been talking to anyone I meet about the advantages of buying green products and most people do not have the time or energy to educate themselves about products or services that meet this criteria. I have also been promoting a new company that will make it VERY EASY FOR ANYONE TO GO GREEN AND REALLY (I MEAN REALLY)EFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT!! TAKE A LONG LOOK AT THIS:
