Heat pump maker rejects oil body's charges, saying cost and emissions make it better for off-grid


"Sorry kids and Grandkids. we were so inconsiderate and tight we decided to burn oil and ruin the climate beyond repair" or that seems to be what OFTEC would say. Agree with Simon Lomax: the oil industry has some very big questions to answer re climate change. As Rose says ECO 3 is there to help those less able to pay and it would be easy to support this further for the sake of low carbon solutions for future generations rather than continue to install 100,000's of oil boilers in the hope that a suitably low carbon low cost bio oil will be viable. A similar argument (economics) was used by UK manufacturers of land mines- hey ho
