Energy efficiency cutting carbon, lifting spirits

Energy efficiency cutting carbon, lifting spirits
The success of energy efficiency measures is the good news story coming out of a gathering of climate experts in Copenhagen.

While the conference has had its share of bad news, with suggestions that climate change is accelerating faster than expected and water levels will rise more than predicted, Professor Will Steffen of the Australian National University remained upbeat.

He said that energy efficiency measures were managing to reduce carbon dioxide emissions with "absolutely no impact on lifestyles or economies", according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"There's actually a lot of good news in terms of a really broad range of things that we can do now," Professor Steffen told AAP from Copenhagen.

"That's a bit of an upper, a lot of people are quite impressed."

Energy efficiency has been highlighted by the Committee on Climate Change and the Grantham Research Institute as one of the quickest, most effective ways of decreasing carbon emissions.
