To whom it may concern

Do you seriously believe oil could become worthless over
new technology that is being designed and if yes what
exactly is going to happen to the regions of the world that are
very dependent on oil to improve their economies?
Could oil really become worthless with in the next few years?
Are there any economic benefits and what type of
environmental benefits would we be looking at?

Well thanks for your time

Surely the answer to reducing energy emissions is to conserve energy rather than penalise producers at source.

For example why is there no incentive from DETR to house builders to install passive solar heating in all new homes?
Even at our latitude, solar power can make a very useful contribution to energy needs. Just look at all the south-facing roof
space that is going to waste! Also why do commerce and industry still persist in wasting energy - empty office spaces
fully lit, outside lighting on 24 hours a day, etc.

More effort should be put into energy efficient technology, if necessary by fiscal incentives, or even public subsidy.
Government should set energy consumption targets and reward producers for keeping to these targets, not
encouraging even more use. National competitions could provide a cash incentive for individuals, corporate or
educational institutions to devise means whereby energy consumption can be reduced.

Economic instruments and voluntary measures are a viable alternative to the existing "command and control" regulation.

Surely if you are concerned with road transport efficiency you should be more concerned with the fact that large superstores
are contributing to incentives for motorists to use their car as opposed to using public transport....more

Great Idea... I have started a lift sharing website
at The site aims to reduce pollution, local traffic problems and
conjestion. And also help people save money on their travelling expenses.

It is a UK based site for now, but soon to be expanded into Europe and
then Global.

Please look at the site and tell us what you think, thanks.

Subject: Donating blood in France

My name is Amy Ellis and I am currently taking an AS Level in French at St Vincents College in Hampshire.
Next month I am going to be presenting a French presentation on Mad Cow Disease in France.
I have all the information I need except I need to know whether British blood donors have been banned
from giving blood in France due to the chance of the passing of CJD.
I know that they have in Canada, Australia and certain other EU countries, but I was wondering about France.
If you have any information or know any websites etc. that could help me, could you let me know?

Could you e-mail any response to
Thankyou for your help

Just read the page "free travel for drivers who scrap old cars", and whoever come up with this idea, in my opinion needs to
think again. Does he/she truly believe, someone who uses their old car daily will scrap it for a free train pass or something?
A lot of people who have old cars have them because they choose too not because they can afford nothing better.
My 1979 Datsun Sunny doesn't look much in the way of classy but I know that it won't break down because Datsuns are so reliable and
that's why I keep it (and I'm sure I speak on behalf of all of the Datsun Owners Club and similar old car clubs.)

Whenever I take a trip on the motorway and drive 200-300 miles solid, I see loads of newish Vauxhalls,
Rovers etc on the hard shoulder, but rarely see older cars broken down because generally old cars have in-fact had either a lot of work done on them
or are kept because they are more reliable than many new cars.
Scrapping old cars is fair enough if they're no good, but surely if they pass an MOT they are just as good as new cars.
Why pick on old cars?
