Teleworking is a hobby horse of mine which I believe could make a major contribution to reducing CO2 emissions from cars. Every morning thousands of tons of metal leave Brighton and are sent racing up the M23 at over 70 miles per hour. The metal sits in south London and cools throughout the morning and then around 5pm it all hurtles back into Brighton again. Simultaneously a smaller quantity, but still vast weight, of metal makes the opposite journey.
Why? – So that the project manager who lives in Brighton can chat to his friends while he works.
