Although at no point did they ask me about my £110/month electricity bill
Your footprint is 1.96 planets
* food 28%
* travel 11%
* Home 22%
* stuff 39%
* We've also calculated your carbon footprint, which is 6.68 tonnes per annum
And who the hell considers 14-17°C to be a "comfortable" temperature?! I am in noticable pain (thanks, RSI) if the temperature around my desk is below 19C, and 20C is definitely preferable. Sure, the temperature can be lower if you're being active, but I generally am very inactive while I'm at home :P
I have to agree with this. It's a little bizarre.
