Cutting Emissions

I’m very much in favour of cutting emissions but I found the headline of this article

to be somewhat inconsistent with its own facts

The Federal Government estimates replacing the old bulbs with compact fluorescents in homes could cut greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 800,000 tonnes a year in 2008-12. Australia’s emissions in 2004 totalled 564.7 million tonnes.

That 0.14% could hardly constitute a slashing.

IEUpgrade

I never really bought that line about IE being part of the operating system but it seems that now even Microsoft can’t get rid of it once you install it 🙂
