  1. Can't believe for a second that you think anything but the police were to blame for Hillsborough. Unbelievable
  2. You sound like the Daily Mail/Telegraph. I don't know if I have the energy to respond properly. I might sometime later. For now, I'll just leave a big 'Oh dear'.
  3. No, it's entirely not about views, mine or anybody else's. It's about what sells papers. Scandal sells papers, especially fundamentally blown out of proportion ones. Truth is irrelevant, although it is made out to be.
  4. And I suppose some corrupt government official in Venice has left the bath tap open on purpose? And I also suppose that the majority of the warming in question, happening in the more extreme latitudes, is affected by heat islands? Urban areas have little to do with the rise in GMST. In fact, the band that the majority of the world lives in has changed little compared to the north and south polar regions. However, keep believing everything you read in the papers, as I suppose their only purpose is to report the "Truth"
  5. Tell that to the Maldives and other endangered islands. Tell that to the 40% of the population of this earth who suffer from water poverty. Tell that to the countless species that are being eradicated every month due to anthropogenic activity. Tell that to the hungry. Personally I'll be made up if the science is incorrect and we have nothing to do with climate change, and this was all a storm in a teacup. Problem is, what happens if it's right? Clobbered with Green taxes? I was under the impression that it's 5%. Hardly clobbered. And, harnessing what we have already costs money, where'
  6. I've not argued how they get their budget, or even how much they have. Just the way they go about spending what they do have and the decisions they make, which leave a lot to be desired sometimes.
  7. Nah, Kingsway Allotment. The green and cost benefits are secondary though, the missus just likes gardening, and I like eating...a lot . Anyway, recent study (It was either National Geographic or New Scientist I read it in) shows that the price of green in the US would cost overall 5%. They indicated that the UK would be marginally better. If those figures are correct, is that too much?
  8. It's OK I can afford the tax with plenty of headroom
  9. Michael McIntyre (Funny bloke) does a sketch about "since records began" and the bit about them starting to make records on the hottest, coldest, wettest and dryest day on record was a classic!! And Michael McIntyre is brilliant
  10. Not sure who's bought in more than the other, me on the science or you on the media. I know which one I generally trust more, but neither are perfect, but one is faaaaar worse than the other. Nothing like a good conspiracy and the tabloids to stir up a hornet's nest to put everything out of context. Fact is there's strong science, regardless of a few rogue mails that have been blown out of proportion and tarnished the science. Surely you understand I didn't mean personal insurance, but global insurance. The world has spent billions if not trillions on disaster mitigation with earthquak
  11. But I couldn't find them elsewhere, Warrington Walking Day 1937 Warrington Gas Works Demolition 1937 Warrington Model Aircraft Club 1937 Warrington Coronation 1937 Orford May Queen 1937 All posted to YouTube by James Balme who I think I've read on here is Indy's mate. Anyway, if you haven't seen them, enjoy. If you have, then maybe enjoy them again
  12. So, let me see. You are right about a lot of things. Indeed GMST in the 1st century was greater than it is now, and yes the Earth does have its own natural process of warming and cooling, glacial and interglacial. But, and it's a whopping but. Over the last 140,000 years temperatures have been up around the current mean temperature for only short periods. So in respect to the last 140,000 years, temperatures are unusual. But perhaps part of a cycle you say? Looking at those cycles, the largest recent shift in temperature was between about 15,000 and 5,000 years ago, shifting ro
  13. As far as I'm aware, regular DVB-T tuners that are in Freeview boxes, or built into your tellies won't work with HD Freeview when it happens (years off by the way). Essentially, you need a different tuner to receive HD Freeview, and I believe it works by combining both tuners into one signal so it can reach the bandwidth required for HD - and I'm guessing it won't be full HD (i.e. 1080p).
  14. Hang on, if my Mum and Dad give me 50p pocket money, they're effectively controlling my budget. But it's up to me if I blow it all on 2p cola bottles at the tuc shop rather than spend it wisely. Are you trying to tell me that our council spend their budget wisely? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's an easy job, but somebody out there needs to put their head into the the 2010s and onward. I've seen some encouraging signs of late, so there is hope. Anyhow, Warrington isn't the worse place in the UK to live, far from it. It's also far from perfect, which is partly the local council'
