Energy sources: No efficient use as yet

WE have been in deep energy crisis for quite some time now, and yet there is no wake-up call for efficiency. How is it possible that we are suffering so much and still not ready to look at our problems?Natural gas, being our mainstay, must be used efficiently. However, neither industries nor large building complexes have taken adequate steps to help save gas and thus reduce gas cuts to the minimum.We still find numerous industries operating gas-fired boilers to generate steam and hot water for
