I read an answer posted on MadSci by David L Smith on Wed Aug 21 11:12:03 1996 to a question about Energy systems. It can be found at this URL: 839329499.Es

In his answer he says:
"Energy can be produced with no new pollution at all simply by using less of it."

Can you explain how this is possible? I have not been able to reproduce this. I tried not using my car for a few days, it didn't produce any pollution but I wasn't able to detect any energy being produced either. Can you give me a good example that I can understand or an experiment that I can try that would demonstrate this principle?
