Scroll down....

Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

No way will cyclists accept forced compulsory insurance



George Ferguson, current Bristol Mayor, seems to be swinging towards the anti-cycling camp. Compulsory insurance for cyclists? No damn way!!! For a start it will price new cyclists off the road, secondly, all the evidence shows that its motorists, not cyclists, who are primarily responsible for cyclist-motorist accidents. Third, cyclists don't damage the road surface, heavy transport does. Fourth, cyclists don't help to devastate the planet, fossil-fuel spewing heavy traffic does. I am sure I could think of a few more reasons, given a bit more time.
