"I am certain that if Christ were alive today, he would hang his and
his disciples' clothing on the line to dry." "It is always cheaper,
easier, and better for the planet to save energy than to try to make
it. The average home uses over 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a
month. Our average is less than 150 kilowatts."
J. Matthew Sleeth in Serve God, Save the Planet.
