Hi All.
Amidst the other doom and gloom of the Broads future,it seems that Global warming may take over any way and put us under the sea.
So off i went today to a small meeting about Carbon Trading,
Filled in the form,
YES to
Loft insulation
cavity wall insulation
Low energy light bulbs
Small car etc.
Big Smug grin on face ,untill i was asked about my hobbies.
Small boat on the Broads that consumes
1 gallon of fuel every 12 to 15 miles with just me on board.
Hmm.
But the very nice man said if you fit time switches to your T V (video cd  freeview box etc so they are not left on stand bye you can trade that saving to enjoying your boat
In put please cos i think this is a brill idea,
plus when i told him i trundled round lynn on a moped (horrible sight i know) but at 100mpg My red face was saved a little.
Perhaps if we can do a little it may help.

The problem is going to be the likes of China and India, who's economies are starting to go into overdrive, fuelling the desire to posses all the nice toys that the rest of the world has had for the last two or three decades. China is only a short way into a program of coal fired power station building that will see one new power station come online, per week for the next seven years. Even if the UK came anywhere near to meeting the targets for reducing the emissions, it will be a drop in the ocean compared to the increasing emissions from the emerging economies.

Seesm like we will all be lving on boats by the end of the century.

12 to 15 mpg, Ohh, how I wish Roy (more like 12 - 15GPH at fast cruising speed), now I am upset, at least I can console myself that our engine meets all the 2007 Euro polutiion regs. Frown

I've always liked the look of a Hardy

Please don't tell the green police where I live Smile


But Roy, 15 mpg can only be a dream for me.

Speaking of which, David, where was that pic of your boat taken?  At tiny avatar size (on a 1280x1024 screen) it looks like it could well be somewhere in the south pacific!

David,

I think you also have a sailing boat on the broads (Walker bay - zero carbon), therefore your average carbon emissions per boat is quite good. tounge-in-cheek

Like you David i can only dream of 12mpg let alone 15, best returns are around 6 at low speed cruising dropping to about 3 at sea/speed.

For anyone wishing to monitor the power consumption of domestic appliances Tchibo market a wattmeter (227464).
It plugs in between the socket and appliance.
  It can be quite a suprise when you can see the cost of keeping equipment on standby.


Regards-Steve

Taken on a little northern broad with a gate on it Simon, got trapped in a corner by loads of saily things going round and round in circles for ages, until they got dizzy & went away I understand it's a regular occurance thereabouts.

Thanks for reminding me Ian, "you are Lobby Lud & I reclaim my green(is) credentials" Smile

Well Roy, What you need is one of those big sticky up things and a big rag to hang from it. Environmental impact zero.  Tinhat
