Thumb Down

Landfill

So, tonnes of dimmers and fittings that won't take CFLs to landfill.

And this too...

"Eventually, the Trust admitted, the low energy bulbs make little difference to the householder because the lower heat output in cool climates - like ours - means people spend more on heating" http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/17/energy_quango_power_running_out/page2.html

Porsche to challenge London CO2 penalty in court

Sleepy

Easy answer

Everone seems to have missed the easy answer - well it's easy for me anyway. Just don't go into London any more. Don't pay any congestion charge, don't work there, don't buy anything there. Leave Ken a ghost town to rule over.

Oh, and getting three small children into full-sized child seats can't be done in a current Vectra, the doors won't shut.

The Electric Car Conspiracy ... that never was

Sleepy

Heat

Only alluded to by a few, but of course most of the time in the UK we have heaters on in our cars, making good use of some of that 60% "wasted" energy.

In electric cars that energy is wasted elsewhere.
