Greeks Can't Afford to Heat Homes
.


" Kostas Tsitskos, 88, can’t afford fuel to heat his home against the winter’s cold. So he and his son live in a single bedroom, warmed by a small electric heater.

“One room is enough,” said Tsitskos, who lives on a 734 euro-a-month ($971) pension and doesn’t have the 1,000 euros a month he needs to buy heating oil. "

This story doesn't make sense.
It does not take 1000L a month to heat his home.

Re: Greeks Can't Afford to Heat Homes
Well I think most poor in Europe (and indeed the world) are suffering from fuel poverty, I have read stories in the UK of pensioners buying books to burn on their fires as a cheaper alternative to coal and wood..

We live in a very sad world rant

I guess he said for all winter, not a month. The heating oil price was raised a lot this year so many people cant afford it, as we also pay more taxes and the salaries and pensions have dropped dramatically.

Right, like we are totally dependent upon the system. The hoards that destroyed Rome, used their library books as fire to warm themselves.

Re: Greeks Can't Afford to Heat Homes
Although 1000 euros for one month's heating oil and 3500 for the whole winter is a major overstatement, the austerity experiment has gone too far here.
