Education, Conservation and Economic Good Sense

I wrote this paper in 1988 when I was a young scientist at CSIRO, Australia (the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). It is still current. Have we progressed?


Much has been written about the greenhouse effect and the implications on a local, national and global scale. What can the individual do with respect to alleviating the greenhouse effect and will this have a significant effect on the problem as a whole? This paper explores options for individuals and seeks to assess what quantitative and other impacts these behavioural changes will have on the greenhouse effect. The paper also examines the feasibility and costs of making such changes in the context of individual lifestyles and situations. A range of implementation strategies is discussed

Key word index:  carbon dioxide emissions, energy conservation, policy implications, education, domestic energy usage, lifestyle  impact, transport, recycling, buildings, behavioural changes.
