Heating Houses in Hawaii (pt. 1)

It can get cold in Hawaii.  I know, I know.  I've been hearing it forever:

Staying Dry on Waimea's Wet Side

I live on the wet side of Waimea in a house that needs a lot of work.  When we moved here we brought a lot of art.  Our house isn't ready for me to hang it, and even if I did...you know it gets moldy here, right?  And I've got a half-dozen roof leaks.

The art is important.  Much of it was made by my wife's father, and it holds special meaning.  It would be a shame if the microbes ate it.

Terra-what?

We're going to save a trillion watt-hours of energy.

Not by myself, oh no...that would be hard.  We're going to do it together.  We're already up to 44 billion (44,000,000,000) watt-hours (Wh), so we've already met almost 5% of our goal.

How are we going to do it?  Math tricks.  You pay your electricity bill, and you pay for kilowatt-hours.  A watt-hour is one-thousandth of a kilowatt-hour.  See?  I made it easier.  We're saving smaller units of energy, but a thousand times more of them.  Math tricks.
