Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sven Triloqvist:
For example, a family might buy a giant plasma TV. They can afford it, and they can afford the extra energy payments. But a plasma TV can easily use 7 or 8 times more electricity than an old cathode ray TV. In Finland, we would need another nuclear reactor if every home bought one.

yeah but think of how much less they're driving around to the cinema now they can enjoy HD at home!

less eyestrain, less doctor visits.


if you can run your 600W whisk off a panel, why not yer plasma off a few more?
