Depressing to think that even though air pollution in the UK is estimated to kill over 50 000  per year, you are still better off walking/cycling though it than you are sitting in your car getting fat and unhealthy!

Carbon capture & storage, and nuclear fission do seem to solve a lot of problems, pity that economics don't add up.

Solar and wind will not be able to replace carbon/gas on a like for like basis, but they are cheaper than they use to be and continue to get cheaper. Storage is starting to look practical, which alleviates some of their problems.

However the bottom line is that the UK needs to use a lot less electricity if we want to have any hope of not making global warming even worse than it is going to be.

MacKay's comments are typical of a heavy-industry, centralised view of electricity, and may be practical in many ways, but I think he missed the boat on the falling cost of some of the alternatives and the disruption they will have on the market.

Close up of failed stitching on brand new Endura clothing. Will have to go back to the shop and swap. Bit of a pain, but they are supposed to have a good reputation for honouring their responsibilities and the shop should also swap without a problem. Annoying as I normally double check these days when buying cloths as the quality is often so poor.

Hardly surprising, but at least it looks like only VW really went out their way to cheat.

Stating the obvious.

If the share price hasn't gone up in 18 years why should the executive salary have tripled?

Stating the obvious, coming out after so many years in will be horribly complex, painful and expensive, something the outers keep ignoring.

Very sad indeed to think the UK parliament would draft legislation that people think comes from some dystopian literature or North Korea.

Good news, the government may have killed the big cash incentive, but as the cost of panels and inverters have fallen, it's still viable for many people with south facing roofs.

Don't know if it is or is not cariogenic to humans, but the precautionary principle does dictate that we we should at least reduce our reliance on this herbicide and tighten up the rules on how much residue is allowed.

The evidence that it is cariogenic is just one data point that may turn out to be misleading, but I think we do need to be careful. Rather sad that Europe  is taking a more cavalier attitude.

Right wing newspaper provides biased coverage on climate change - who would have though it?

They can deny reality as much as they want, but the evidence gets stronger day by day, that global warming is real, it's caused prominently by CO2 in the atmosphere and most of it was put there by human activity.
