With the holidays right around the corner, and broadcast television stations changing to digital signals early in 2009, lots of people will be looking for a new TV set. So the timing couldn't be better for televisions that meet the new Energy Star criteria to arrive in stores.

According to the Energy Star site, "TVs that earn the Energy Star label under these requirements will be up to 30 percent more efficient than non-qualified models." When you're shopping, be sure to check for the label.

I believe you shouldn't buy a new television unless yours is broken. Saving energy is good, but what about the energy that went into producing, transporting and selling the new one, as well as the waste of the old one. Will it be properly recycled or just end up polluting ground water with toxic waste? I don't watch TV and haven't bought a new set for at least 15 years. I've heard that there are conversion boxes available for the change to digital, wouldn't that be a better choice.
