Hob-top kettle saves 70% CO2 of electric

Two-part tip: part 1 - heat only the amount of water you are going to use: one mug/cupful, or exact multiples of same as appropriate; Part 2: if you have mains gas, consider switching to a hob-top kettle: the gas you use less than a third of the CO2 needed to generate the electricity needed to boil your measured amount, due to system losses (45%) and line losses (~15%), so your hob kettle creates around one third as much carbon dioxide as the electric one, by my calculations. Emissionary.
