Rod Oram on demand management

Earth shatteringly obvious and reasonable statements. The only real question is why haven't we been doing this since the 80's? I wonder if you can connect the whimpish carbon tax pullout with our complete inablitiy to do anything that doesn't smack of a silver bullet? No phot ops perhaps?
Energy security and supply will consist of 1000 different solutions all having a minimal impact individually but adding up to a significant effect.
Oh, and geothermal would be a siliver bullet, but it's really hard and NZ doesn't really do hard.
