He's aware of the high energy usage and tries to offset energy efficiency and paying more for altnerative energy improvements, just like with his flights.
In addition, (I can't find the link now), he runs his businesses from his home. Comparing his energy usage to small business office is probably much more realistic. Any idea of the enery costs for small businesses?
The buttons are free and could be hotlinked. Let's make some fun of Olmert!
