Top 5 of 2012

As we say goodbye to 2012, let's look back at this year's most-viewed items here on Convenient Solutions:

5. In an Olympic year, I was certain to start comparing nations in the climate change arena. The Australia v Germany infographic showed that despite being famously sunny, Australia still has a long way to go in solar power.

4. My convenient solutions for Keeping Warm in Winter was a big hit back in June. It might be helpful for our northern hemisphere readers right now.

3. Good news is always welcome. So it proved with the news about the Lego company doing their bit for renewable energy.

2. More good news was a coal power station closing. More stations followed later, but this piece of news was popular with you.

1. The most read part of my blog this year was the ending of support for solar hot water. The incoming Queensland government decided to the end the $600 rebate ($1000 for pensioners) to help people upgrade to solar hot water. The same government has continued to cut energy efficiency and renewable energy programs, but the solar hot water episode was the most read.

Thank you for reading this past year. Thank you for being interested in positive stories, realising that we still have a fair way to go, and for doing all you can. Let's hope for an even better 2013.
