Insulation works

Parts of Britain had the most snow for 18 years last night and today. As usual, this country is ill-prepared for the snow with travel disrupted all around the country and a plane skidding off a taxiway at Heathrow Airport. About 50cm of snow has settled in parts of Yorkshire. Just up the road three buses are stuck in the snow.

I think this picture shows that the roof on the left has been insulated, but not the roof on the right where most of the snow has melted. The insulated house actually has a good layer of snow helping to keep it warm inside. Our local authority, Kirklees Council, has actually pioneered a home insulation scheme which it is hoped will be adopted around the country. In Kirklees the scheme originated with a Kirklees Green Party Kirklees Green Party amendment to the 2007 budget.
