More BBC propaganda, Alaskan permafrost melting (Oct 2017): http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20171016-the-great-thaw-of-americas-north-is-coming

But data suggests general trend for Alaska is cooling: http://www.gi.alaska.edu/alaska-science-forum/alaska-bucks-global-temperature-trend

trends for 15 Alaskan sites from 1949 to 2014: http://climate.gi.alaska.edu/ClimTrends/Location

(all except Barrow in the far north show cooling or stable temperatures from 1979 to 2014)

I don't know about VAT, but the BBC Journalist fails to understand that the economics and practicality of battery cars, do not work, if you can not rely on recharging at your home or normal destination, where the car can be left unattended.

Why shouldn't petrol stations charge a parking fee, equivalent to prices in a local car park?

There are legal limits to the reselling of electricity, though I don't know if this is relevent to battery cars
https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/resale-gas-and-electricity-guidance-maximum-resale-price-updated-october-2005

"From 1 January 2003 the maximum price at which gas or electricity may be resold is the same price as that paid by the person who is reselling it ("the reseller"), including any standing charges. This document provides guidance on reselling energy and estimating the maximum resale price."

12:20 R4 item about Shell opening charging forecourt in London
Reporter Samantha Fenwick seemed liked activist
She hectored "EVs have been mainstream for 5 years why have you taken so long ?"
"Your price is very high ".. Got guy to say he pays 12p/KWh at home yet this station plans 48p, and has an opening offer of 25p until summer 2018
" There's no fuel duty in that, that's all your profit" says stupid reporter
Point is you are renting parking space , just the same as in a cafe the coffee price includes renting the table.
Anyway doesn't the electric price include VAT ?

If you are an activist there is an easy way you can get you agenda into a BBC story

If you ask the "wrong kind of question" of course the BBC system will filter it out
What question do you want BBC News to investigate?

Lawyers must view the earnings of the Cinton Foundation, as a juicy cherry, ripe for picking.

I wonder what the evolutionary advantage is for baby bullfinches to learn country tunes or rock ballads.

I don't know about bullfinches, but some birds meet a messy end, if they grow up listening to French Country Music.

Pcar
“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and..."
..... she didn't make it to BBC Woman's Hour to explain her multitasking skills.

"Coffee" might have been a mistake.
