    Actually, that's really from the thermometer at the bottom of my garden.

    The real graph looks like this:

    I listened to him. In the third minute he went on to tell us about a place where we can get free money and shoes, and in the fourth minute, all the free handbags you can carry.

    Piracy is causing global warming.



    Anyone know if they're man made pirates, or is all this piracy naturally occuring?

    Free money = Setting up a windfarm and get paid 10x the market rate for whatever energy you generate

    Free solar panels worth £12,000: Save £120/year on your electricity...

    If you can shell out c.£12,000 for your own system, it’s possible to grab c.£23,000 in payments for the energy you produce.

    This is all about the Govt’s new ‘feed-in tariff’ scheme. The scheme, which replaced solar panel grants, means electricity companies have to pay people who produce electricity from renewable energy sources such as wind and the sun.

    It's reckoned that you'll get £800/year though this is not guaranteed, it's an estimate, so you must do your sums first. The key to this is ...

    The system costs £12,500, but over 25 years the feed-in payments could net you £23,000.



    Boomed!

    You can scoff, but picture that is actually a lot more ominous than it looks.

    Sorry if I've mentioned this, but as I student I worked in an ice cream factory, where every now and then they would defrost the huge walk-in freezers.

    These were normally at -20C, and of course the cold would hit you as soon as you walked in. But curiously, it wasn't normally perceptibly colder just outside the plastic flaps by the door. Even if you stood there, you'd hardly realize the freezer was nearby behind the flaps.

    But once they had started defrosting, it was noticeably damp and cold outside for a considerable distance from the entrance, even as the freezer was getting much warmer, relatively speaking, inside. ...

    The moral of the story is don't assume that cold and damp in our neck of the woods must mean all is well at higher latitudes. If anything, the opposite is more likely to be true ...
