It has been quite cold this week and my thoughts are slowly turning to central heating. Gone are the days when I could flip the switch on the boiler without a care . If it were not for the slightly impoverished circumstances I find us in, I would be basking in the 70s right now; or would I? These days I find I have a "green" edged lining to my decision to hold fast and wrap a thicker cardigan about my ample shoulders. I recycle, don’t own a car and shop locally but I feel my not automatically reaching for the thermostat on my boiler the second I feel chilly, has a more significant impact on global warming. I know the methane produced by cattle is a serious contender for the bringing about our eventual demise but I like to think I at least did some small thing to avert catastrophe.
