I think it's true to say that much damage to our well-being, AND that of the world in general, is done quite un-whittingly, and whilst gaining no personal benefit from it.
Putting "the foot in the tank" in a high gear, or driving in too high a gear, with a diesel engine, not only doesn't get you up the road as well, but it costs a fortune in fuel, whilst choking the guy behind, AND - if really done well - will wear-out, and quite soon break, the tramsmission rumble-filter with the clutch.
2 Going too fast, so that you have to keep braking is not good for anything/one
3 Using electrical energy from PV panels to make hot water. It's a last resort. A "dump it"
4 Making wind Turbine-Alternator Devices - TADs - with the two components of widely
different costs, will increase the time to pay for itself
size 1 2 4 8
num. of TADs 64 16 4 1
T+A cost 1+1 8+2 64+4 512+8
Total cost n x (T+A) 128 160 272 520
It's all too easy to miss !!
