We have smart/Green cars, why not start building public housing with solar panelling to cut carbon emissions?

Imagine entire communities being able to store enough energy that they may sell the the surplus off to our power companies building for both a more sustainable and self sufficient future this and environmentally friendly.

Public schools, public departments, all government buildings generating at least a good percentage of their own power.


$50,000 (less if developing on a grand scale or building a new house ) is all it takes to convert your home to green, which if my source is correct will supply more than 90% of your household power requirements, this and you sell power back to the grid.


Rudds ETS is a policy enabling companies to exploit and take advantage of developing countries voucher requirements,(dirty coupons) which ultimately will send what's left of our industry off shore where global emissions will increase, just will be less apparent in developed countries making little difference globally.

They are a currency, a developing nations tax, something Rudd wants in his portfolio the way John Howard has the GST.

Whats wrong with public smart housing if he's serious about substantially reducing emissions?

Australia is so far behind, I checked this out last night, and the UK have already implemented policy that requires zero-emission houses (only) be built by 2016.

They have introduced the policy in phases, though by 2020, all UK houses will be expected to comply with specific environmental guidelines set out by their government.


As for us, well, we only finished building our first "ever" government approved zero-emissions dog-house a few weeks back.*yay*


Australia, always a day late and a dollar short.
