Ontario is taking a comprehensive approach to cutting emissions, which is a good thing. While some folks may love to hate the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, the reality is that it's the reason Ontario is Canada's clean technology leader. And the coal phase out was the right move, too, which is why it's being emulated by Alberta, why Ontario hit its 2014 GHG emissions target, why our air is now smog-free, and why people like me, who care about the environment and our kids' future, can breathe more easily.

An earth tube, also called an earth to air heat exchanger, is a set of plastic or concrete pipes that are buried underground and draw air into a building. The air flows through the earth tube and it is warmed or cooled by the ground's constant temperature of about six degrees. The longer the earth tube the more energy transfer you get.
