small daily tips to save
Wanted to do that list by Earth day but didn't got enough time... As on EM.com, why not having a tips list ? (didn't read the forum often lately so may be it's being done currently...)
Here are some small daily tips to save. Feel free to complete, correct, translate to English...
All seasons :
In winter :
In summer :
Earth absorbs 1.8 t CO2/head/yr, while a French generates 6.2 t CO2/yr

Put inline switches on chargers for laptops (only computer in the house) and cell phones, you can get plug in, inline switches if you don't want the power strip type.
Don't have a TV (wastes time and electricity).
Have multiple lights/lamps per room so you can have as much or as little light as you need/want.
It's better to have one big fridge or freezer rather then two little ones.

Thats a very good idea guys. We should build a list.
I'll add a few.
Set your refrigerator temps to 40F for the refridgerator and 5F for the freezer.

I pulled the CD/DVD drive out of my laptop. I reckon it probably pulls a few watts for a few minutes every time I startup/shut down. Can't hurt.
Mostly I did it to aid in cooling-- it's hot here and the extra air flow makes the internal fan run less often.
