Heat and Holidays

It appears that the sun has it in for us this summer, with this adsurd heat here in London. Hopefully through us you'll be able to earn or save some money, in which case a quick visit to Cucumber Man could be in store - an air conditioning unit can be rented for surprisingly little.

There are some who are embracing this heat wave, and no it's not only the huge deodorant conglomerates and the many ice cream van owners. It's also those dreaded environmentalists, no doubt seeing this weather as yet further proof of global warming. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but all too often the car driver has not only been landed with the blame, but also villified as if each and every one of them are personally responsible for the destruction of our planet. As over 17,000 international scientists stated when signing the Oregon Petition, from the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine:

"There is no convincing evidence that human release of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases is causing, or will cause in the future, catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere or disruption of the Earth's climate."

Not what the environmentalists would have us believe. So if you're tired of hearing global warming mentioned tirelessly coupled with all this anti-driving propaganda, then visit The Association of British Drivers. They campaign for all things good and pro-car.

And for all those organising their holidays at this moment in time, check out how the travel companies are price discriminating through charging some online customers more than others. The moral of the story appears to be, amongst other things, to sort results through 'cheapest option first'.

Do you have any other useful summer tips or insightful quotes? If so, drop us an email. If we agree with you and it is indeed interesting and useful you could find yourself mentioned here. Prestigious it may not be just yet, but we're working on it.
