Thinking of changing the style for this new phpbb back to the old style, like this - https://demo.phpbb3styles.net/subsilver2

Any objections?

Big thanks to James B, our wonderful tech guru

Hi all, long long long time no speak.

Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to James B for getting the lights back on with this necessary system upgrade.

Will be doing a little bit more to spruce this up, but yes once again he saves our skins!

All the best

James H

I remember being dumbstruck when prices went ABOVE $50 - it was a really significant moment, at the time.

Still, all these people saying that this sharp drop in oil prices is a sign that 'peak oil is dead'...will they apply that logic when oil prices rebound above $100 and say 'peak oil is alive'?

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel this is some kind of political power games going on by energy companies trying to send a message?

IEA report reminds us peak oil idea has gone up in flames

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/damian-carrington-blog/2012/nov/12/iea-report-peak-oil What follows from this is that the idea of peak oil has gone up in flames.

Apologies!

Dear all, my apologies for the late reply. As most of you know, I can only give a small amount of my time to Powerswitch, the rest is taken up with a climate change charity that I work at, and yesterday we had a massive launch event that has taken up every second of the last two weeks of my life in ...

What do I think?
I think DECC'll pretend to listen to what we say, and then do what they want.
