2016 hasn’t been short of dramatic weeks, has it? And this week is surely tied with the week of Brexit for the most dramatic of the year. Donald Trump is now the US President, and with his election we enter yet another stage of uncertainty, not least with regards to climate change.
Trump Victory Reverses Energy and Environmental Priorities – The Washington Post
Unsurprisingly, this is a Donald Trump heavy week. The big talking points in the wake of the election are what a Trump victory will mean for renewables (and, conversely, fossil fuels), and what his presidency will mean for the Paris Accord: Trump has long voiced his suspicion of climate change, and has vowed to ‘cancel’ the agreement. If America does turn its back on the Paris Accord then the whole agreement may collapse.

A better deal for our Village Hall
"I recently used this company to get a better energy deal for our local village hall. Other companies were quite pushy but Lorraine and Bhavni from SwitchMyBusiness were much more professional. They sent me useful information by email enabling me and the village hall committee to make a decision about which supplier to use. The switch was done by phone and when the energy provider sent the paper work to the wrong address Bhavni sorted it out straight away. I saved over £1000 for the charity."This review was posted by Irene Winter on the 16th of February 2018
