Did anyone read the RACV article on "Dictionary of energy jargon – and how to decode it."

Well done RACV. I thought it would make me laugh but I actually started crying :cry:

Wow. Thanks for that, Patrick. They could hardly have got it any wronger. If you're an RACV member, it would be good to email them about it. I'm sure they don't want to be wrong any longer than they have to. At least they got megajoules right. :)

I emailed them the same day I posted here, and cheekily asked for a year of free subscription for my editing work :lol:
I'm still waiting for a reply :roll:
