Thanks that's very helpful!  I'm going to buy a wood stove right now.

Oh, and do you know where I can get some carbon credits?

If you own your house, plant trees on the north side of your house,
to reduce the cooling effect of wind.

When it's cold out, raise the window shades to let in sunlight to help
heat your home. South-facing windows are especially good for this.

During the winter, close off north-facing rooms if possible and seal the
heating duct vents in those rooms. Occupy the warmer south-facing rooms.

Hey, I own a house at the south pole.
What now?

Totally untrue with modern cars using electronic control units. In fact coasting
may *increase* your gasoline use.

Dang.  And I've been coasting half way to work every day trying to save
gas.  Would love to see some good references about that.
