40gbp a night is about 52,000 bht a month. You can live in luxury for that amount. You can live very well for 1/2 that.

Re: Global Warming 2

An argument in favour of fossil fuels was that they had promoted wealth by being cheap, abundant and had generated jobs, so now that alternative energy is getting cheaper than fossil fuels, is even more abundant and generating more jobs, what possible objection could they be to it?
