Retro fitting on "Costing the Earth"

I heard the last few minutes of this in the car and have just listened to the whole programme, well worth the 30 minutes that it took. 

 

Most of it was nothing new given that the subject matter is discussed all the time on this forum.  What did take me aback was the figure about how much energy could be saved across the country as a whole and that this equated to the power generated by Hinkley power station.  I supposed I shouldn't be astonished, but I was.

 

It's really good to hear content like this on a Radio 4 programme, but I don't know how much influence it will have given that the most likely listeners will be those who are already interested and/or converted to the cause of energy efficiency.

I think the most shocking part of that programme was what was said about the average skill level on new entrants to the building trade actually falling.  It's one heck of an uphill battle nationally.

Id say the diminishing skill is across most trades, not just building. Its the modern way!
