THE BAKER WON'T ACCEPT THE SAVINGS UNTIL YOU BREAK HIS WINDOW:

Poll: Americans know how to save energy, but balk (MATTHEW DALY | Associated Press)

But that doesn't mean they'll do it.

A new poll shows that while most of those questioned understand effective ways to save energy, they have a hard time adopting them.

Six in 10 surveyed say driving a more fuel-efficient car would save a large amount of energy, but only 1 in 4 says that's easy to do, according to the poll by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. People also are skeptical of carpooling or installing better home insulation, rating them as effective but impractical.
