Right then. I think this linking of a) progressive energy price bands (with a free minimum) b) compulsary energy display's (including visual of how far from nearest bands and how much it is costing you) c) subisised energy saving for low income households is one of the best ideas I've seen. I think ...

I don't think we have the right to end the thread unless some of the posts are personnally threatening (some would also add insulting, but people are probably big enough to take a bit of insult on the chin). The forums must remain an open place for free thought and free speech, whether we agree with...

Perhaps a resonse such as "christopher, I was under the impression that everyone nowadays had heard about Peak Oil and were in the very least thinking about how it is going to effect them. Perhaps I'm wrong and it's just my group of friends." As soon as you make people think that there is ...

Unless we go down the route of allowing a Pol Pot type government in, which tries to take us back to year zero, I don't suspect books will be disappearing - you may just have to go to the library to pick one up. Books and community much better. What I think you will miss is the delivery of books to ...

And what does that mean in reality: 1) tighter controls on the scope, size, duration and accountability of a corporation 2) true costs factored into activities (i.e. energy and environemental costs) 3) removal of all non-scientifically peer reviewed a...

I think this is the point in which I get forum lynched..... I can't make it as I'm going for a long weekend in the French Alps. The people I am going with did however agree to being "educated" for a period of time whilst travelling there and back. Ok, it's not a good enough excuse, I'll we...
