The rich are killing the world!

A survey for British Gas into energy usage and pollution has found that the worst polluting parts of the country tend to be athe most affluent.

One conclusion to draw from the figures, which indicate that areas of relative affluence are the worst performers, is that people who have more money, spend more on energy.

This may, for example, be in the heating and lighting of bigger homes. In Reading, at the heart of the Thames Valley commuter belt, it may well indicate that local people have more electrical appliances than in other places.
