Re: Anxious times

Try the witch test from the Middle Ages.

Tie up suspect. Throw into pond.
If they sink and drown, innocent.
If they float, they are guilty so remove and hang.

Re: Environmentalist's breakfast dilemma?

Well natural measures will limit population. Food prices. A scarcity of food. Oil prices. A scarcity of oil. Of course, if the Organic Movement had its way and no man made fertilisers were used it would happen in 15 years as food yields halved. Remember, about 500 million people are kept alive by ca...

Re: Environmentalist's breakfast dilemma?

Monbiot's argument is typical stupidity.

It's your fault so you can't discuss it.. so no-one should.

About the level of reasoning I would expect from him.

Edit : or the Guardian.

Re: Africa 'can feed itself in a generation'

I quote from the book: "He estimates that while food production has grown globally by 145% over the past 40 years, African food production has fallen by 10% since 1960, which he attributes to low investment. " Pull the other one. "Low investment" is a nice way of saying .. wars, ...

Re: "What the Green Movement Got Wrong"

US embassies in the past have been noted for idiotic advice and comments to Washington.
See Joe Kennedy in 1940 who said Britain could only last 6 months.

Some embassies have members who have #### for brains...and it shows..

Re: Scary fundamentalist view of global warming

He failed to win the Chairmanship. If you look at the votes he polls, his voter love him.. He offended many by likening the various US wars - Iraq/Afghanistan - to a baseball game.. About 100 million US voters tend to agree with his views on climate change (not man made) judging by opinion polls.. h...

Re: Cold winters

Does this not strike you as a government (albeit our last one) setting rather a significant example to the rest of the world? Hmm and then support a new runway for Heathrow.?

Re: Cold winters

I know the earth is warming. But the climate warmists who have been shrill and unequivocal about the effects of global warming .. and who keep telling us winters will be mild and wet ... have zero credibility. That includes the UK's Met Office whose six month forecasts have been 180 degrees wrong. T...
