Wednesday 22/04/09

Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned the fact that shed loads of energy could be saved by switching off motorway lights at night? Well it seems that the following a successful pilot in the southwest, the Highways Agency is to introduce a blackout on a section of the M27 between midnight and 5am on Sunday.

Just looked at how much cash I’ve earned from adverts on the blog. It’s reached $4.53, which I suppose ain’t bad for doing nothing. However, after tax that’s down to $2.71.

Had little time to post today - I’m starting to suffer from the recession; my output is reducing. I’ll leave you with this story from the New Scientist, which I think sums up what’s wrong with the Green Movement. Please do read it.


  1. Mmmm. Very interesting. I suppose it's swings and roundabouts?

  2. Wind-driven swings and roundabouts, one would hope.

  3. Interesting reading...I wonder if the arguments are more subtle than the author is makig out though. Surely it's not a black-and-white renewables-vs-non-renewables argument but a more shaded argument about the price we are prepared to pay for leaving the motorway lights on.

  4. Louise: I think the argument is that the Greens' agenda is not an agenda for progress and they can't even decide among themselves as to the solution. What's good for one Green lobby is bad for another.
