  1. I suspect that lots of small shops would jump at the idea of charging people 5p for their bags.

    Especially the sector who sell dodgy spirits, snide fags and crisps with 'multipack, not to be sold separately' on the bags.

    Of course, I'm not saying they'd trouser the 5p's or anything.

  2. Who are global warming incorporated?  Did you make it up?  Is their boss bald and lives in his secret base in a volcano? 

    It's my umbrella term for the massive commercial operation which has just lately grown up around climate change.

    I nearly did call it 'The Climate Change Company' but I thought people might associate it with morbidly obese Iranians defrauding governments out of millions.

  3. if the Ph is changing and becoming less alkaline then the oceans are acidifying and all your bluff and bluster counts for nought.  The acidic levels do not need to reach neutral before harm is done to ocean life.  You surely know this?

    The oceans are vitally important to the systems which govern life on this planet.

    Elements of Global Warming Incorporated, as part of their hugely profitable war on CO2, actually proposed to add vast quantities of both Iron and urea to the worlds oceans in order to capture carbon and lock it up for a while by encouraging huge blooms of phytoplankton. And cash.

    They wanted to screw with the environment for money, what's a bit of bluff and bluster compared to the possible consequences of that?

  4. I was just browsing through the Federal Report to Congress on US expenditure on climate change in 2013, I know, I really should get out more.

    In just that one year the American government threw $22,596,000,000 into the trough for Global Warming Incorporated to snuffle up.

    Kerr-ching!

  5. "To call carbon dioxide a pollutant is really Orwellian, you are calling something a pollutant that we all produce.

    Coal, formed from ancient CO2, is a benefit to the world. Coal is CO2 from ancient atmospheres. We are simply returning ancient CO2 to the atmosphere from which it came when we burn coal. And that's a good thing since it's at very low levels in the atmosphere. We are in a CO2 famine right now. It is very, very low. More CO2 will be a very significant benefit to agriculture.

    If plants could vote they'd vote for coal."

  6. Well "at best" it'll take a hundred years, if you have the arrogance to believe that puny mankind can control the forces of nature. What is more likely is that pollution will get worse, due to population increase and demand, but not to worry, we won't see it !

    Oh, they don't talk about pollution, it's all about CO2.

    That lovely taxable, carbon creditable, target striveable, financially subsidisable CO2.

    Gosh, how the money rolls in!

  7. CO2 is a vital trace gas in the atmosphere. Without it all life on earth, plant and animal, wouldn't exist. There is evidence (yes real evidence, not computer model conjecture) that the extra CO2 in the atmosphere is actually greening the planet by encouraging plant life. This can be seen from space.We could do with more warming, it's no accident that the tropics are teeming with all manner of wildlife and plants while the arctic and antarctic don't seem to have much of anything really

     

    Still lost on the Uncle Albert thing. A friend of yours is he?

    "Let's celebrate CO2.

    We know for absolute certain that carbon dioxide is the stuff of life, the foundation for life on earth.

    We are dealing with pure political propaganda that has nothing to do with science.

    The deserts are greening from rising CO2."

     

    Dr Patrick Moore, founding member, Greenpeace.

  8. I see 147 world leaders are gathering in Paris , taking time out of their hectic schedules to discuss something you claim doesn't exist.  

    Which speaks volumes about the financial clout of Global Warming Incorporated these days.

    I expect that most of those politicians will come to the table with their begging bowls held out.

  9. If everyone was bombing IS and only IS it would be far simpler. You put multiple air forces in the same bit of the sky all with different agendas and guess what? Something bad is going to happen

    Especially when one air force belongs to a government which is making huge profits from marketing IS oil for them, and is watching another air force shoot its tanker convoys of black market oil to bits.

  10. As I said, NATO and Turkey warned the Russians months ago about illegal incursions into Turkish airspace.  Putin, in his usual arrogant manner, chose to ignore this and now we have the situation where his bluff has been called.  All avoidable but now a very dangerous situation.  

    According to the University of Thessaly there were 2244 violations of Greek airspace by the Turkish military in 2014, are the Greeks OK to start taking pot shots then?

  11. If those 2 people were indeed the only 2 involved in destroying ALL of those records , the Council slipped up.  They must have been the hardest working council employees in the history of the world.  Should have kept hold of them . Absolute Trojans.

    Standard operating practice in local government these days, off down the golden rat hole and away, taking every misdeed with them.

    Everybody else concerned rocks up to the office on Monday morning purged of all sins...easy peasy.

  12. Syrians.

    Specifically, the Turkmen militia who shot the Russian aircrew dead as they came down in their parachutes while shouting about Alans snack bar, those Syrians.

    What's the betting that when Putin has finished with them they roll up in Europe with a Syrian passport and a sorry tale?

    Refugees, bless.

  13. It is a real phenomenon, created by mans emissions.  As for stop cherry picking, seems you are you a bit selectively forgetful at times, go back and see who introduced acid rain to the debate 

    As an example of faux environmentalism for pleasure and profit, I think it was a splendid choice.

  14. So , acid rain is a fallacy then?

    The fallacy of the phenomena which the media labelled acid rain as an actual threat to the environment is...a fallacy, yes.

    Over here it was all just a spin off from America, where in the 80s it was successfully marketed by big business as an actual, full scale, end of the world threat, with the soil sterilised and mankind starving and dead, in saving the land of the free from this awful fate, profits were enormous, billions and billions.

    Anyway, stop cherry picking.

    Where's the ice age we were promised by these same experts gone, then?

  15. Still waiting for examples of doom laden warnings about climate change that have actually come true.

    We were assured by scientists in the 70's that there was going to be a new ice age, since we've not had it yet I can only assume that the Chicken Littles sometimes get things wrong.

    Then there was acid rain, who remembers acid rain?

  16. One other thing I should have raised (yet again) from the Ombudsman's report is that at least one council employee ignored police advice that a Warrington family was at serious risk of coming to physical harm as a result of the planning dispute that prompted the investigation. That is in the Ombudsman's report. Isn't that amazing? People in the planning department were willing to allow Warringtonians to come to harm so they could continue to cover up for something. Has any councillor ever spoken out about that? How about Bob Barr who could have chosen his magazine interview to highlight this appalling situation but instead chose (and still does) to complain about people raising the issue of the law breaking planning team. 

    Some gangsterism in the middle of the night as I recall, wasn't paint thrown over the complainants house?

    No, they never did get to the bottom of that one, in spite of some CCTV pictures of the offender.
