Some days it is hard to be an optimist. The axing of official zero-carbon homes ambitions is one of those days.
I am reminded of the following self-deprecating quote, written in 1968 by the respected Fabian politician Leonard Woolf:
“I see clearly that I have achieved practically nothing. The world today and the history of the human anthill during the last fifty-seven years would be exactly the same as it is if I had played ping pong instead of sitting on committees and writing books”.
And blogs, we might add today.
But still we must push on, onward and upward!
