UK's carbon footprint far too high, according to WWF



Some parts of the UK are more carbon friendly than others. For instance people living in Plymouth and Newport are having the least impact on the UK environment while people in those living in Winchester are having the most, according to a new green league table of mainland UK cities. According to a World Wildlife Fund report, the main factors affecting an individual’s ecological footprint are: housing, transport, food, consumer goods and public and private services. The ecological footprint is made up of the land and sea area required to feed, provide resources, produce energy and to absorb their waste and pollution.

Clean, Eco Friendly. The future is under your feet!

Those who support it see geothermal energy as a near-perfect source of clean energy with virtually no carbon emissions. The resource is abundant, renewable and environment friendly. Still, geothermal energy has its own unknowns and limitations. Experts say that within the next decade, Colorado in the USA is likely to become the site of electric power plants that use geothermal steam, effectively harnessing the energy of underground water which gets its heat from the earths core.

Its that time of year again... Beat the Winter Chills... and reduce your carbon output!

Every year our national energy consumption rockets as soon as the first frosts arrive. Its early November and right on queue here they come! The natural first reaction is to turn on the central heating (if you haven't already) turn up the thermostat, spend more time indoors (with the heating on!) hunker down for the big chill. BUT... is it all really necessary?

The most immediate side effect of ramping up the heating is that we all notice that our winter fuel consumption goes through the roof, and sometimes literally! But advice is at hand to help us to reduce the fuel consumption spike and thereby to help reduce our carbon footprint. In this day and age where we understand the issues and more importantly where we feel the pain of those bills perhaps a more enlightened approach to coping with the winter freeze is in order. To help us get started lets look at some of the options available.
