  1. I missing having a well-insulated flat, with passive solar heating. We lucked out in Melbourne and didn’t have to heat the flat in the winter (when it could get down to 2 C overnight), or cool it in the summer (when 40 degrees C outside only meant 30 degrees inside). Now that we are in a big, draughty house, we have to use heating. Mostly from a gas Rayburn in the kitchen (NOT an efficient way to heat/cook), supplemented with some gas central heating (can’t afford much ) and an open fire in the studio (with building site offcuts and driftwood). Not my ideal eco home….

    • Keep your fingers crossed. If the melting Arctic ice manages to divert the Gulf Stream, things in places like Northern Europe and Iceland could become a bit chillier!

    • I’d love to live somewhere where the temperature only went from 40 to 2 C. Around here, it’s up to 40 in the summer, yes, but winter will drop to anywhere from 20 to 30 below zero at night
