Does the NHS need the European Union? [Infographic]

Does the NHS need the European Union? [Infographic] | ecogreenlove

«Although “Leave” campaigners believe that the NHS will be better off outside the EU, recent government figures suggest that Brexit would result in a loss to public services of £36bn a year, an amount that could leave the NHS with a funding black hole.

The impact of a potential Brexit is open to debate and nobody can really forecast how the NHS would fare. As debate rages on, we have collected this data from a number of sources to bring you what’s important about the NHS and the European Union: The Facts.»

Is Cohousing the Future? [Infographic]

“Cohousing communities are communities organised collaboratively. Residents have their own private spaces but band together to share meals and facilities, organise activities and look out for each other.

The focus is on community. All that’s required is a neighbourhood where people want to band together, take care of one another and collaborate for the good of all.”

Recent research, presented at the National Astronomy Meeting, suggests that the northern hemisphere could be plunged into a mini ice age within the next ten years. This would lead to those currently living in temperate climes (like the UK and USA) enduring colder and harsher temperatures than they are prepared for. If this comes to pass you will want to be as self-reliant as possible in terms of heat, energy and food. While the mini ice age may prove to be a lot of hot air; these methods can still be used to save you money, help the environment and keep you healthy.

We are all being asked to shrink our carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption, but have you ever wondered how energy efficient the UK is compared with our European neighbours?

This infographic highlights the present and future targets for reducing energy consumption. It provides an insight into where the most energy is being used, and where the most effective savings are being made in average households.

The statistical breakdown emphasises current progress. It also indicates which countries are best at conserving energy. In the UK, we are not the best, but on a positive note we are not the worst either.

There remains a long way to go before targets are met. Nonetheless, little by little, positive steps are being taken across the European Union to reduce energy consumption.
