I agree with him most of the things the religiously environmentalist (i.e. those who worship at the altar of the environment, greeniacs, environmentalist wackos etc) push is crazy, but The Empress and I have mostly compact fluorescent lights in the house. When we switched over our electric bill dropped by about 50%. The cost on those bulbs is paid back.
When alternative energy becomes cheaper people will switch.
Get compact fluorescent lights and watch your bill, don't do it in dribs & drabs do it wholesale.
