We need shift our frame of reference. It isn't "how much will you pay or will this cost?" We are already, and will continue to, pay for the negative impacts of climate change. Decreasing mtn. snowpacks will hurt PNW agriculture and reduce runoff for hydropower generation.
We each have the power to control our energy usage and we can buy from companies that use energy responsibly. Use the power of your purchasing to influence behavior!
Our energy bills are influenced by the rate for energy and our usage. You can control your usage and thus the amount of your bill. You won't have to pay more if you increase your efficiency. Is your home insulated? Have storm windows? Do you use CFL bulbs? There are many things I've done to increase my comfort and efficiency and reduce my bills. Try it; you'll be glad to be doing something good for your family, future generations and the planet!
