If you aren't a warmist then you must be mentally ill and your opinions can be safely ignored?
Sounds like just what the frothinggreenies ordered!
Medical achievements on facebork?
I can see it now....
Fred has started his antibiotics for NSU!
Gina has completed her course of antifungals!
Dave wants to share his Preparation H with you!
Of course you can drive at 150mph
The fact that it is not legal does not prevent the car from physically reaching that speed.
It's more along the lines of stating pi=3 - only barely approximate in the loosest sense of the word.
Of course we have had an impact on global warming, it's a sealed system and everything effects everything else.
What this shows is that temperatures have been far higher (and lower) in the past before we started burning fossil fuels on a large scale.
Also that the "MWP doesn't exist" crowd did cherry pick the data to hide their "inconveient truth".
I'm not a denier, I am a climate cynic.
I would be interested to know who financed this research. I will lay bets it was not "big oil" but a government and I will also lay bets that this is the last we hear of it as it does not suppor t more taxes!
Don't you just love emoragequit?
Re: Class selection
On screen buttons are so last decade, why not guestures (spelling deliberate).
Mines the one with the unopened manual in the pocket.
I would have said Dark City
as it is the only film I have ever mourned the loss of those 2 hours of my life.
However Human Centipede takes the cake as involuntary surgical torture porn.
You are cynical...
and most likely dead right.
The solution is still nuclear.
Thorium by preference.
If renewables (wind/PV) are the answer it's a bloody stupid question.
Now is the time for some uber-boffin to work out some way to slow the rock enough that it can be trapped in orbit.
Then we can start mining it.
Hopefully it's full of rare earths - we don't really need another 260kT of iron oxide.
Once we've done it once and if it's viable we can work out how to get rok's from the asteroid belt back here.
Mine's the one with "Earth first - we can strip mine the rest of Solar System later" across the back.
Re: To bold Lego...
Poll? nah, just a list showing, in order the top 10/20/50/100 voted comments for both up and down.
As the holder of a +46 I would hope I make the top 10, but accept I am not in the same league as TRT.
Kudo's to you sir.
@ laird cummings
I assume you mean "In all fairness .... CO2"? as opposed to the dead in 50 years?
I base it on a rudimentary knowledge of biology from real O levels and observation of algae build up on aquaria.
So basically far better than most warmists.
Re: multiple millenia
I was being generous with the century or so. Any politician involved is only interested in the next term of office and the climate so called "scientists" in the next funding round.
Me? If I last another half century it'll be a surprise (more so to some people than others) so century - tens of millenia? doesnt really matter that much.
Either way, planet Earth will manage, with or without us.
Re: You forgot a life-form in the feeding frenzy food chain...
In all fairness it probably is caued by elevated CO2.
CO2 +sunlight ----algal photosynthesis--> O2 + more algae.
It., like climate change will balance out over the next century or so, with or without our interference.
But the facts never stopped the warmists before.
Re: 6m gap?
See what I mean?
You'll have 2 idiots pulling in to there at 70 almost immediately.
Re: Damned if they do ...
Part right -
High priced consultant? - check
consultant knows how to design websites? - not part of the requirements.
@ Jack 4 Re: Chronic Fatigue?
Just a thought,
Try cutting out all wheat and gluten for a couple of weeks - CFS like symptoms crop up in Coeliac Disease too.
Warning - you'll probably feel like shit for the first week!
Is that from personal experience?
Re: Re: Still having input?
Because it is more itunes vs amazon than ipad vs kindle.
"How do you tell Daily Mail readers that an...?"
Something along the lines of "Fire bad, tree pretty*" ?

No mention of coriolis force either.....

You are Morris D. and I claim my five pounds.
Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: "So, the world's climate is changing.."
The MWP did not appear in the heavily cherry picked and massaged data used from Siberia/Urals (one area).
However there is evidence supporting the MWP for Europe, North America, Africa, Middle East, Asia Pacific.......
So not global at all huh?
Re: Re: Re: "So, the world's climate is changing.."
Medieval warm period?
Oh sorry , that was cut from the models as it doesn't fit with the warmists needs.
Re: Re: So...
We don't need to be resilient - only adaptable.
How in hell can "standards-essential patents" exist?
It's time that the standards system is overhauled.
If a standard requires the inclusion of something patented, that patent should immediately become null and void.
This will stop companies trying to game standards (Microsoft's OOXML anyone?).
I $ee what you did there.
Suggestion for a forum upgrade
How about a forum wide scoring table giving a list of posts that have scored particularly high - or low - in upvotes/downvotes as this will give an idea of what topics are interesting people.
Perhaps giving all time as well as in the past month.
Not that I am competitive in anyway shape or form honest (46 upvotes is the best I have managed on a single post)
Ever read any Heinlein?
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" if I recall correctly...
...they dropped a rock on Denver as part of the Lunar independence "negotiations".
There's an IE8?
I wouldn't know I switched to an alternate browser so long ago......
Monsanto's excuse - "yes we know diet pop has formaldehyde in it but it's in such small amounts as to not be dangerous".
Guess you're too busy to actually read the post?
Oh really and your rebuttal is ?
A simple google of aspartame formaldehyde - discounting any wikibased entries to avoid being accused of "wikisalting" produces (amongst others):
This experiment was conducted in 1997. It has been repeated many times and yet, ignored by Monsanto and the FDA. The study proves that there are significant amounts of the chemical, formaldehyde in Diet Coke - more if the pop has been stored at room temperatures or higher (and it's often stored in hot warehouses in the South and Southwest). A 2000 JAMA study established that intaking even trace amounts of formaldehyde, can cause damage to several areas of the body, yet this is Monsanto's excuse - "yes we know diet pop has formaldehyde in it but it's in such small amounts as to not be dangerous". Aspartame/Nutrasweet is in some 6000 foods and OTC medications. Formaldehyde is on the FDA list of cancer causing chemicals. On some foods, nutrasweet is not listed however, all foods having nutrasweet in them must carry a warning about "phenoketinuria". If you see this warning, you might want to say "no" to the food or medication.
Now put up or shutup.
Which part of aspartame?
The fact it decays into formaldehyde if stored at room temperature or
the fact the other decay product is methanol?
Forget the justified/overreacted argument for the moment...
I think he has given two valuable lessons to his daughter, hopefully she will take them to heart.
1. There is no such thing as privacy on the internet.
2. Never put anything on the net that will come back and bite you on the arse.
I would not have used a gun.
The Terrorism Act 2000 defines terrorism so as to include not only violent offences against persons and physical damage to property, but also acts "designed seriously to interfere with or to seriously disrupt an electronic system" if those acts are (a) designed to influence the government or to intimidate the public or a section of the public, and (b)be done for the purpose of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause.
Lets see :
"seriously disrupt an electronic system" - forcing us to power generation that will lead to rolling brownouts? I'd say that was serious disruption of the Grid let alone houseolders own ring main.
So by this, it would seem that anyone who is anti-nuclear and pro-renewables (such as Greenpeace) should be considered a terrorist.
And yes I do support the actions of the Met.
You only ever hear of the mistakes, not the successes in these situations.
We consider dinosaurs to be natures failures...
given they were only round for about 2 million years or so.
I'd be surprised if humanity survives the next millenium.
Saying this leaves a bad taste in my mouth but...
The French had the right idea.

Beer to wash the taste away.

Thanks, the CD is still in the desk drawer from last time i tried to run it under XP
I'll try it on the Win7 laptop tonight.

Still can't get it out of my head!!!!!
Low friction tires?
Even the concept of these worry me, I mean the whole idea of a tire is to grip the road!
Can anyone explain how these are not a bad idea given British weather?
Stop sign because I'm not convinced it will......
an elevated T cell count is a pretty good indicator you need to get something investigated further.
Calling Agent Picolax!
0% from renewables, with reduction in price as a result
I'd settle for a 100% nuclear tariff.
(Living in the prefect place to site a new reactor - 70m above sea level with no fault lines).
I imagine it's just a guess.
Juist from the RIAA-sockpuppet-like(can I copyright this dual hypenated word?) posts of Morris D.
They would have more success if they targeted gamers
A low overhead (compared to windows) operating system with GPU support would make the perfect games platform.
Incidentally it might also wean developers from DirectX and windows....
