Wired featured a bunch of energy related stuff in its May, 2006 issue.
It does profile a bunch of ways to "kick the carbon habit at home" but that was only in the print copy of the mag apparently. I was surprised by some of these ideas.
Regarding dishwashers - some now use less energy than used to hand wash apparently. They point people to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy site. I had never heard of them before. Anyone else? Is this a cool group or a front?
Smart Strips are power strips that detect when your computer shuts down and turns some of the outlets off so the peripherals stop sucking power - via the famous phantom circuits.
