On the one hand we talk of saving energy and on the other waste it without any sense of guilt or compunction. I am referring to people commuting in air conditioned cars and instead of alighting at their destinations, continue to keep conversing within the car endlessly with the engine running and the air conditioner working and keeping the driver waiting invariably outside the vehicle (most often the destination is a residence, either their own or their friend’s).
Ironically, these are the very people who are supposed to be educated, cultured and I am sad to add belong to the fair sex who seem to care two hoots about energy conservation. They apparently have ‘no time’ to step inside the house to carry on their conversation/ discussion!
