Re: Parts of Sunderland to be underwater by 2030

In my opinion, this is an additional reason to abandon fossil energy sources and switch to renewable ones. It is easy to say that though but when the costs go up we haven't got to be upset :thumbup: The government seem to have enough money to throw at the rich though? They can subsidise those solut...

Re: Tolent lands vaux housing deal

The only stumbling block is the price as always This is what the debate is about because if it was viable we would have done a quick transformation within a couple of years.

Re: Tolent lands vaux housing deal

Is there really such a thing as renewable energy? There has been a lot of debate about this recently. Renewables don't pump co2 into the atmosphere for a start.
