I am waiting for my asbestolux garage to go beirut. It has a jerry can, a few boxes of bioethanol etc. The mains runs on a caternary wire from the house socket ring main - old school. Oh and I like my re-wirable fuseboxes.

Yeah, I know..Ill sort it one day. It's well detached.

Was it a propane fridge? I presume they are hot with catalytic [flameless] burning. There was a lot of lightning recently. well done for keeping multiple data copies.

Auckland, new Zealand, goes into lockdown after 4 positive cases from the same family. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-08-11/coronavirus-new-zealand-jacinda-ardern-auckland-stage-three/12547678 Beyond silliness.

Presumably that compares to the lung damage from wet cloth and paper microfibres that they won't document.

The ICE engine could also run at ideal revs for maximum efficiency like the diesel electric trains. They could be very good MPG with only a small battery and engine. This is what I always assumed hybrids would be, not big battery gimmicks.

If I lived in Lancashire, and was not in a certain circle of people travelling backwards and forwards to Bangladesh and Pakistan, I would be getting hacked off.

Personally I would have thought housing from the garden towns until the 50s was the best age of housing development. If you think modern town planning is good for England I can't agree. Try Telford or Newcastle?

Your ignorance on the matter shines through, Fuzzy, although I do agree with you on lack of feasibility of hydrogen heating. There is also no need to throw personal debt about if the insulation scheme is paid for by a government cash injection with a tax on the savings in energy costs paid for thro...

The 1st priority would be to stop the builders from building mock georgian crap housing on huge estates with no infrastructure. Prefereably dissolve all planning depts in lime, and use them for fertiliser.

It would certainly throw cash/debt about. There is never going to be a hydrogen gas boiler system. If you are going to try to add heatpumps to 1/2 the UK houses, it is easier to knock them down and build proper insulation. Almost none of the things listed make any sense. External cladding, decent wi...

Then add in that train and bus travel involve small trips at both ends between your door and the station or bus stop and again at the other other end between station and office or store. Imagine bringing home two weeks of groceries on a train or bus that fit nicely in the trunk or back seat of your...
