[cdn-nucl-l] Re: NRCan; tips for increasing energy efficiency
I received another letter from my Royal LePage
agent with "some tips for increasing the energy efficiency in your
home". (I'm sure he's dying for me to sell my home.)
"Did you know that washing laundry
in cold water uses 50% less energy?" Natural Resources
I guess the next tip from NR Canada will be to
wash my laundry on a stone at the side of the Credit River. This is
service I'm getting for my tax dollars!

This is a good point. We who labor (part time) for NRCan Office of
Energy Research and Development have mentioned this a few thousand times inside
the Department -- with no effect. I have wandered through their exhibits a
number of times, and have only very rarely found the "N-Word".
I dug up a
hard-to-find reference to nuclear energy at URL <http://nrcan.gc.ca/eneene/science/intint-eng.php>. It refers to the GIF and Gen IV programs. Don't read too
fast, or you'll miss it.
You have touched on a very real problem that
exists within the federal bureaucracy.
