Yes, I read that diary too with a sinking feeling at the deliberate inaction of the British govt.

I just get so tired of the way the British always choose the worst, most short-sighted policy.

When I get to actually building houses in Bulgaria, I'm hoping to incorporate a lot of green technology into them. I was very interested in the Greek building that uses green air-conditioning.

Solar use in south Europe goes back more than 2000 years.  Entire cities were built on passive solar principles.  And many houses in north Africa were built using solar coolers.  In fact, Roman law included rights of access to the sun.
