Dear LAist,

I want to be good citizen but I don't want to give any money to Al Gore and watch that movie. I'm still pissed at he and Tipper's PMRC bullshit. How can I conserve energy during this heat wave?

Mr. Greenthumb

Dear Mr. Greenthumb,

We've noticed that the best way to conserve energy is to use someone else's. If you find yourself turning up the AC in your house, get out of it. Go to the movies, the library, the coffee hut.

Go camp out around a Hollywood party and get some Lindsay Lohan candids for us. Ride the bus somewhere. Wash your car. Wash your neighbor's car. Go to church. Volunteer at the orphanage. Testify at a halfway house. Play a video game at an arcade. Cruise the mall for some cougars. Learn how to ice skate at that Culver City ice rink. Ladle out some lunch at the soup kitchen with Ben.

If you're inside in the summer and you live in LA you're pretty much missing out on one of the reasons that you live here. So scram. Get lost. Make like a tree and get the f outta there.

Southern California Edison has some more tips after the jump.
