High Office Heating Bills?
Staff Should Wear Thermal Undies

How many times will we see articles over the next few months about how everyone has to pull together to save energy because of the high prices of heating oil and natural gas? Here is a BBC item from last June sent by Brian Ferguson that foreshadowed things to come:

Staff at the Environment Agency's headquarters are encouraged to wear thermal underwear in the office during winter, it has emerged.

The move is part of a drive to reduce heating costs at the London office of the pollution watchdog, according to its chief executive Baroness Young.

Lady Young said everyone could help to reduce their impact on the planet.
I hope some investigative reporters will be checking Lady Young's drawers this winter.
