Energy producers are getting greener - shame about the public [UK]

Anyone reading your front page about pollution would be entitled to wonder exactly what was going on in the UK, with headlines claiming that the five biggest polluters in Britain - including E.ON UK - produced more CO2 than all motorists combined...We are producers of a commodity that answers a demand from customers - both individuals in their homes and businesses. What your report seems to suggest is that it is the responsibility of industry alone to fight global warming...if we use our energy more efficiently, both at home and at work, then companies such as ours produce less electricity and so less carbon.
