    Emissions, Global warming or a scam

    when global warming is mentioned nothing is said about the rockets and bombs that are used in the wars/conflicts the last figures that I have seen said the uk produce 1% of the global greenhouse gas so if we got to 0% it would not make any difference dos any one have figures of how much co2 is produced to manufacture wind turbines/solar panels from scratch to producing electric into the grid (witch will need replacing after about 20 years) also read a article today about the rise of the electric car saying because of the loss of the fuel duty etc road tolls will be introduced and will cost the average driver £700 per year

    Hetas, Woodsure, Ready to Burn and Grown in Britain

    I do not think the private consumer will give a toss as to what logos you have on your logs as long as they burn and are a keen price
