Return of the Isle of Ely

Discovered the Google Maps mania post, in Scobles Google reader shared items, on the effects of sea level rises around the world.

Here is the map for around Cambridge with the Ely returning to its Island status with only a 2 metre rise in sea levels.
Here in Cambridge it would need a 12m rise. It would no longer mean a 70mile trip to Hunstanton to go to the seaside 🙂

‘Free’ Electricity

Pretty amazing that Tom Evslin living in Vermont used NO electricity in Feb and March except that generated by his solar arrays.

“Note that there are NO charges for
kilowatt hours because our solar arrays generated more than we used,
even late in the Vermont winter”

Be interesting to find how much they cost and what their output is.
