Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What do you suggest? Should we all move to the tropics where we won't need natural gas to heat our homes?

Between the gas increase and the sea level rise I guess I can look forward to living underwater in a cold house soon.

Lookup the height above sea level of Long Island NY if you want to see what I'm talking about...

Well, this is the logical outcome of the theory of competitive advantage. Why should it be economic for anyone to live outside the most temperate areas? They will always have an advantage.

Of course you can use isolation instead of heating. There are some houses built in Sweden that does not require heating at all. They get enough from body heat and excess heat from appliances.

Still I guess it would be better to live were neither heating nor isolation is required, from a strictly economic wievpoint. But then you can not enjoy a winter day with beuatiful snow everywere. Guess I should head out and enjoy it instead of commenting about it. :)
