Currys stops selling energy-guzzling patio heaters - Tech Digest
Currys, ever keen to announce that they've stopped selling something that's either unfashionable or environmentally unfriendly, has told the British public that they'll no longer be stocking patio heaters in any of their stores. According to recent reports, using a patio heater for two hours produces the same amount of carbon dioxide as a car produces on an average day, adding 380,000 tonnes to Britain's annual CO2 emissions. Given the Great British weather, it's no surprise that many people have decided to install outdoor heaters, particularly as a certain genre of DIY / home improvement telly programmes have encouraged doing wonderful and expensive things in the garden.
