But if global warming is actually real, doesn’t that mean we won’t need to run our heaters as much? Surely that’s a good thing!

lol, but i am studying architecture and a huge focus is on sustainable design – it is actually quite an achievment for matthew driver to have accomplished this, as it is more difficult than most people would think to design a sustainable house or building.

I couldn’t give a pile of steaming donkeys’ turd for any of that. People like him will get my carbon footprint up his arse if he’s not careful. Its good to have people like BigDave around, it keeps us remembering that freedom of speech comes at a cost.

Still BigDave, your ignorance has got to be somekind of RA record.

Question, what exactly did this guy do to deserve you threatening him hardman style from the safety of your computer?

It would also reduce the cost of your bills you know.

“… reducing carbon emissions by 80%” presumably refers to emissions of carbon dioxide.

That non-polluting, odourless, colourless trace gas that is essential for all plant life via the process of photosynthesis and therefore essential for the production of oxygen which, in turn, is essential for plant and animal life.

Why would he want to stop that? Does Matthew breathe?

Like most things in life, CO2 is good in moderation. We however are fast pickling our metaphorical liver.

essential for human and animal life might read better 🙂

hippies are fun though
