Global impacts in the middle of nowhere revisited
I commented on the price of fuel oil recently, and was horrified at the price. I forgot to include the VAT in the second figure - aaaaaagh! The impact of this is now surprising. You would not believe the number of lumberjacks that have appeared in the woods, and the price of wood. And the three-four month waiting list for getting a wood-burning stove installed. I wonder how many of the neglected little parcels of woodland will start getting dusted off over the winter.
