Global warming: It's GOOD for the environment

Thumb Down

Disingenuous and unintelligent rubbish.

Disingenuous and unintelligent rubbish. Just because trees might grow a bit faster if there is more CO2 in the atmosphere does NOT mean that greatly increasing the CO2 in the atmosphere is a good thing. Clearly the proportion of CO2 in the atmosphere is still rocketing up DESPITE the fact that there are lots of trees around. How can this help to any significant degree? This does not even begin to get us off the hook.

For a much more significant announcement last week look at the verdict by the US Appeal Court on the actions against the EPA. Now there is some decent common sense for once from rational legal minds.

War On Standby: Do the figures actually stack up?


Re: annoying

Do you SERIOUSLY think that having one less shower/bath a week is enough to cause a person to "stink up the underground". This would only be the case if that person already had only about two showers or baths a week - most people shower or bath much more often than they need to in order to stay clean and stink-free. Unless they have a body odour problem, but that's not most people...


Re: A bit low...

@AnonymousCoward - Why be so negative? Log burners are great unless you are a total slob who can't be bothered to do anything worthwhile.

Re: What's wrong with NHS Direct?

NHS111 is much broader than NHS Direct was - the key change is that the out-of-hours service has been integrated into it, so that you now have just one number to call which can triage you and not just direct you to further services but also book appointments for you. In essence it's undoubtedly a very sensible consolidation of services. Whether its works or not will be down to its implementation (which has had a lot of thought put into it) and how well staffed the private sector contractors end up being - and this is not something that past experience suggests is guaranteed!
