Andrew! You're using comments? I assumed you were allergic to them based on the fact that none of your stories have comments enabled?

Ker-rist

A ridiculous way to poach green kudos.

What emblems are left for those in the energy sector to lace their glossy brochures and promo videos with, when sweeping vistas with Vestas become cliché?

Is it just me...

...or is the squirrel soliciting to that train? Filthy, filthy stuff. Nasty, nasty Reg. Shame on you.

Mine's the one with the codpiece on the back.
