The European Commission and the IEA propose reducing energy consumption by driving more slowly and adjusting the thermostat

The European Commission and the International Energy Agency have suggested that Europeans should reduce energy use by adopting practices such as adjusting the thermostat, driving slower on motorways, using public transport, working from home and walking or cycling for short periods Use routes instead of driving Vehicle.

“Using less energy is a concrete way for Europeans to lower their bills, reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels, show solidarity with the Ukrainian people and support climate action,” they said report explained. Ukraine struggles to defend itself amid a brutal invasion while Russia wreaks death and destruction, killing many, including civilians.


The energy saving proposal suggests setting the air conditioning to a warmer temperature and lowering the temperature target when heating. It also suggests drivers reduce their speed to increase fuel efficiency.

“The average heating temperature in homes in the European Union is over 22°C, but many could comfortably accommodate 19°C or 20°C. If you turn down the thermostat in your home by just 1°C, you would save about 7% of the energy you use for heating,” the report says by almost 10% and save 20 euros per year.”

“Speeding is inefficient for the car engine and wastes fuel. The average car in the European Union travels around 13,000 kilometers a year. By reducing your average cruising speed on motorways by 10 km/h, you could save your household fuel bills by around 60 euros per year,” reads the proposal.

Many figures and institutions around the world are promoting climate alarmism.

“When it comes to climate change, time is really ticking. Earth Day is a reminder that if we commit to doing our part and honoring those commitments, we can help preserve and protect our planet for future generations,” said former US President Barack Obama tweeted on Friday.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey from “Relatable” responded with tweet, “If you believed that, you wouldn’t have a villa on the beach.” Obama has one villa on Martha’s Vineyard, an island in Massachusetts.

“On Earth Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to come together and confront the existential threat of climate change. We must act now to save the planet,” said Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tweeted on Friday.
