*sigh* I'm not asking anyone to justify my having a bath every day, I don't happen to have a self sustaining borehole at present but I am, in any case, capable of making and accepting responsibility for simple moral decisions without asking people to help me justify it, or not, but thanks for your c...

It's also not possible to have a totally sustainable system - there are losses all along the way. You can recover some and put it back, but much is lost. Well I suppose this is the crux of my question - chemically water is H2O and of course it can be changed to something else (photosynthesis for ex...

all true although we've previously had a bore hole and I know from that that some supply plenty of water. The BF also has a degree in AgroForestry so we have a reasonable idea of what planting we would need to be aware of. So this is really a theoretical question; IF you have a borehole which suppli...

sorry - wasn't making myself clear - I mean a borehole that you know can meet your needs, not one which may run dry.

water

IF you pull all your water from a borehole so don't use mains water and IF you treat your waste water via reed bed or similar so don't use chemicals would it be true to say that your water usage is irrelevant - given that water is not actually 'used up' it all eventually returns to the environment? ...

I think financial and convenience incentives, not penalties, are the way to go, I'm not that old and when I was a kid we still used to get money back on beer bottles (I think it was beer, it was something dad drank but I wasn't allowed), and we always collected them - eve though recycling was an ali...

I'm not sure that governments setting maximum child numbers would be especially helpful, but I often think the world would be a better place if we hadn't made some of the medical advances we have. Having discovered how to make people live longer then there may well be a moral responsibility to do so...

I don't know how Rayburns are regulated when they run the central heating but normally you would expect some time of feedback from the water tank which will control the cutoff. - so if both the Rayburn and the woodburner are heating the same water tank it would work automatically. Its perfectly poss...
