Brits are the EU's Worst Energy Wasters

A recent survey on energy waste indicates that Britons are the worst energy wasters in the European Union, engaging in more than twice the number of energy wasting actions per week than Europe's best performer, Germany.

Though the survey paint Britain in poor light next to its European neighbours, the UK stands as a pillar of responsible energy use next to North American nations. According to 2002 data, both Canada and the US consume twice the amount of energy per person than British citizens.

Thanks to Canada's Clean Air Act and Bush's inaction, that difference is not likely to change soon.
