Today’s Indy notes the recent upsurge in outdoor ice-rinks in major towns and cities:

Well, Oxfords version certainly kept me amused for an hour t’other night. Though I suspect my carbon footprint may have expanded as a result.

I was very fortunate friends pictured me at the one moment in the session when I managed to look semi-poised.

How will your carbon footprint have increased? They used energy to freeze the ice whether or not you went on it.
