How saving energy helps reduce the greenhouse effect.
Almost all of the energy we use, whether for heating, cooking or transport, contributes to the greenhouse effect. Energy sources such as coal, petroleum and natural gas produce CO2 (carbon dioxide) when burnt to provide us with useful energy. By wasting energy in our daily activities we contribute unnecessary quantities of CO2 to the atmosphere. For example, NSW contributes over 80 million tones of CO2 to the atmosphere per year. This is equivalent to the combined weight of 210,000 jumbo jets, or about 18 tonnes for every person in the State.
