Brilliant little bulbs - have replaced all my bulbs with them with notable benefits for my electricity bills and carbon emissions. A real bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best kettle I have had, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been looking for an insulated kettle for some time as one further small step to reducing my electricity bills and carbon emissions. This does the job well, if not perfectly - the outside is still palpably very slightly warm, so insulation isn't perfect. I reheat it when I need a hot water bolus rather than relying on the heat conserved, but as the water inside is still close to boiling it doesn't use much power. It's also a very solidly built and nice looking product. One slight niggle is that the flow from the spout can be a bit slow and irregular but you soon get used to it..One other feature that's missing is the ability to read on the side how much water is in the kettle so avoiding overfilling. Perhaps someone will merge the features of the Eco-kettle with this product to produce a truly green kettle. Overall another very useful tool to reduce your consumption of the UK's unfortunately fossil heavy electricity

5.0 out of 5 stars An important and lucid analysis, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant book which exposes the lies we are told daily about the welfare state and its supposed problems. In fact the book shows clearly that most people get back something from the system over the course of a lifetime and as their life circumstances change with a fairer and more just society resulting. If everyone in the UK read and understood the facts in this book we would not have the current distasteful government policies which cause so much damaging inequality and human misery.

Waking the Giant: How a changing climate triggers earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes
Waking the Giant: How a changing climate triggers earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes
by Bill McGuire
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating if somewhat chilling, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting and informative book on a little known feature of climate change - its impact on earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic activity. However implausible this may seem, and the deniers will want you to think that, the book links to dozens of papers on the subject and examples from Earth's past and current behavior. It's not a turgid or difficult read either for anyone with a basic knowledge of Earth science.

A brilliant little power pack - charges my phone, kindle and iPad all day. I use it to charge on low carbon electricity overnight to avoid the higher carbon daytime period, and when I am going to be out and about. Solidly built and a quality product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 30 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Solar Kettle (Red)
Dubious when I got this but on sunny days in UK I can get water up to boiling or near several times a day. Put the hot stuff in my insulated kettle and reduce my leccy bills a bit more. On a dull day may only get one batch but in today's sunshine have had 2L of near boiling water by 2pm. Nice thermometer on lid - needs watching in strong sun as once it boiled and blew the lid off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good read for those interested in the war on science, specifically climate science, in the USA, Australia and UK. Mann is a veteran, his discoveries having threatened powerful vested interests as the flood of denailist reviews on here shows. An excellent work laying bare the desperate and obnoxious tactics of the fossil fuel lobby.
