Bite my shiny metal Ask: Java for OS X crapware storm brewing

Only the JRE not the JDK

I need this abomination on my hackintosh to run Eclipse, which is itself the spawn of Satan.

Anyways-up, the latest Java 8 JRE does try to sneak the wonderful Ask toolbar on you. If you install the JDK, which also installs the JRE, it doesn't.

Take-home point: I hate you Java and all who sail in you.

Re: DSCOVR not Gore's idea

"Now the deniers can start denying once again, but this time in the face of hard data as to the Earth's net heat gain that cannot be accounted for by solar activity."

I had to read this twice because of the stupidity of it.

If the heat isn't coming from the Sun, where is it coming from? There is no net heat gain! If so we would have turned into molten blobs eons ago!

The Earth's temp is in a remarkable equilibrium.

Look at this graph...

Re: DSCOVR not Gore's idea

Sigh.

Satellite data sets already confirm 18+ years of NO GLOBAL WARMING, despite a linear increase in CO2.

As for the albedo data... bring it on! It will be the final nail in the alarmist's gravy-train coffin.

Antarctic ice at ALL TIME RECORD HIGH: We have more to learn, says boffin

beast666

Re: oracle@delphi.gr

You are in denial.

If you trace back from the present you will find that you can go back 18 years and find no warming.

This is a fact.

Go back 30 years and you will indeed find warming. But this is not my assertion.

It is indeed demonstrably true. (18+ years of flat temps)

You Sir are the troll for not accepting my assertion and the facts and continuing to use weasel words.

Re: oracle@delphi.gr

What worries me is that governments absolutely believe its 3 when the facts are that its 1.

Billions spent, energy prices through the roof. And for what?

I repeat again. Global temps haven't increased in 18+ years despite CO2 climbing steadily.

Again. Why should we tax carbon (Co2)?

beast666

No.

Sea-level rise is decelerating.

'Extreme' weather is not more common.

Global temps have been flat for 18+ years.

Add the Guardian to the list of watermelon (Green on the outside, red on the inside) outlets that selectively spew this nonsense.

Re: Antactica is melting too

You are really struggling to put the case forward that Antarctica is losing land ice aren't you?

It is not. It is too cold. The fact that sea ice is increasing is because it is colder than it has been.

The Earth hasn't warmed for > 18 years and counting.

CO2 meanwhile continues to increase.

Ergo. No connection between CO2 and global temperature.

CAGW is false.

Get over it.

Re: Antactica is melting too

How does the pure water flow if it's surroundings are < 0 C?

That is the problem.

beast666

Re: Antactica is melting too

So pure water ice is melting from the land of Antarctica. Pure ice melts at 0 C.

It then goes into the sea where it promptly freezes despite the fact that the sea is saline and has a melting point < 0 C.

Can anyone see the problem with this? ;)

Smart meters in UK homes will only save folks a lousy £26 a year

beast666

Re: we make millions but you pay for us to do it

I have a pre-payment meter. All electronic has a 'smart' key that you load up with credit and plug into the meter. No need for anyone to come round to my gaff and 'read' the meter right?

Wrong. I still get a call every quarter from a bloke to 'read' the meter.

The same thing will happen with smart meters. You'll still be required to provide access to it so they can check you aren't a nerd and hacking it.

Sheesh.

I have had to sort out ionization smoke alarms because they 'bip' recently.

Not so! They were linked mains-powered devices with battery back-up.

All the smoke alarms are in the process of being replaced.
