So this is publicity for a browser company, but at least it's an open source browser that's against tracking. And the report is scary anyway! https://brave.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Surveillance-on-UK-council-websites_compressed_version.pdf

So if you live in France, I just did the maths. The difference between EDF's standard Tarif Bleu and their Tarif "Verte" (where they pledge to invest your money in renewables) is a whopping 30 € over 8.000 kWh. That's right, pay 2,50 € more a month and EDF will be forced to invest more heavily in renewable energy. Not seeing a downside? 🤔
Reason #2237 why SUVs need to die in a fire: the one I'm renting (no, I didn't ask for it, they didn't have the small hatch I asked for) is a Peugeot 3008 with a 1.6 turbo engine in it - and yet it's so big and heavy it has the same fuel consumption figures as my 22 year old 2.3 turbo Volvo estate! That's ridiculous.

Watching the BBC Click summary of EVs, amazed they didn't mention the Renault Zoé. They talked about the new VW, but it's more expensive and Renault have been doing EVs for knocking on 10 years now, so in terms of experience and credibility Renault are streets ahead. They were building EVs while VW were still designing ECUs on diesels to cheat emissions tests. 🙄 Surely they earn a mention? The Zoé is certainly selling very well here in France.
