Focus on energy and rest of the benefits follows

As the world deals with climate change and global warming issues, the media is busy in finding folks who fuel the debate whether it is happening or why is it happening. Time and money is spent and we lose the focus on real issue behind it all - Energy.
Why not deal with one issue and let the financial benefit of saving money be the main reason for taking this approach? It is immediate and undeniable by anyone. If we put a 15 watt bulb to replace 60 watts, then it is guaranteed to save 75% immediately upon installation. Environmental benefits and climate change is additional benefit but slower to see it happen.
Stimulus package provides many benefits to municipalities to invest in energy conservation and green energy generation. Local power regulating agencies need to enhance the " net metering" laws to have less restrictions on size of green power systems at user site. Any excess green power should be purchased at a minimum price of 6 cents per KWH. With tax credits and long term loans the Communities can aggressively start many projects and helps us beat the dependence on oil and polluting energy sources.
Let us find smart solutions to this energy problem in nature where land, air, water , and sun is sustainable and free for us to use as energy source.
