Of course we are using less here (Japan) already. Lights are off in the office most of the day, train schedules have been cut back to about 80% of normal, etc. Summer is going to be pretty intolerable if we can't use air-con. But just look at the disparity the parent points out. There's no way any reasonable amount of behavioral change is going to make up that difference.

Yes, we should use 'green' power sources as much as possible but it's not going to be enough. For the foreseeable future, we will need to make a choice between nuclear and fossil fuels or a mix of both. To suggest otherwise is not radical, it's just wrong.

I'd have liked to see pages that specifically use flash heavily (youtube or some kind of flash-based game) compared here too. I've noticed that Flash in Chrome causes my fan to spin up like crazy. Other browsers, not quite so much.
