Aerogel is the best insulation ever created.

The Australian government brought in a home insulation scheme and really fucked it up. It's a good example of what not to do with enviroment policy. Then there's all the Asbestos in the roofs of so many older houses. Fiberglass is safe, but it's big and takes up a lot of room. Glass doesn't insulate against heat and cold at all and glass buildings are very inefficient with insulation.

I'm posting this video on here incase you haven't heard of this type of insulation called Aerogel, it's a much better alternative to anything that exists right now. Power consumption would be drastically reduced if everyone's homes were insulated with this stuff in the future:
