I think the point is though, that it's not an either / or. We need to  
be doing all of the above, and urgently. If people's personal  
circumstances make this difficult / impossible that's a seperate  
issue, but we can't really be using energy efficiency in some areas to  
jsutify extravagence in others - it's basically the same offsetting,  
but on a personal scale, and it doesn't work.


Cheers,

Tim
