Energy saving day (not)

We would put money on it! You – like us – did not know that Wednesday was "Energy Saving Day".

Charles Clover, in The Daily Telegraph tells us that its organiser has admitted that it was a failure, after the National Grid confirmed that across Britain energy use went up by just over one percent in the day.

In fact, consumption was about 600 megawatt hours across the country, higher than what the National Grid estimated was used on a normal February day.

Matt Prescott, the organiser, who had support from the Esme Fairbairn Foundation, said: "We had problems. There was a change in temperature. If it had been warmer, we would have been happy."

Tough life being a warmist, ain't it.
