"We estimate that the cost of refurbishing the great majority of the UK's homes to cut energy use
by up to 80 per cent, as Germany plans to do, might [be] between £200 billion and £400 billion over
forty years or so. This figure is similar to the sum, £325 billion, released into the UK economy in
just three years by the Bank of England's 'quantitative easing'. We're facing a global climate crisis
that cannot be solved by quantitative easing".
