Better living with less energy

Crow, Maurie (1980) Better living with less energy. In: Local Low-energy Plans, 29/1/1980. (Unpublished)


A talk by Maurie Crow to assist local community groups to formulate and campaign for local low-energy plans, 29/1/1980. "Our Our Own Energy Year! 1980 is "energy year" - Victorian Energy Year anyway - if we are bold enough and sensible enough to make it so. We do not have to wait for the United Nations or governments or this or that Party, or union congress or welfare institution to tell us so, and how it should be run. Through the Community Energy Network (CEN), energy conscious people are organising their own connections irrespective of what organisation they are in. We do not have to wait like sheep until energy crisis descends bankrupting industry and wrecking the lives of individuals and their families".
