Watching "reality TV "stars" dying from crash landing, habitat failure, or slow suffocation. " would have been!

I challenge you to find a list of all climate researchers, of which there must be at least 1000 on it and indicate those who are "persuaded" and the one or more who has not been "persuaded".
Also climatology is no longer a science, it is a belief system. In any scientific field you can question any conclusion without being called a denier!
Whilst most of us agree the climate is changing, as there is sufficient evidence for that, some of us would like to question how you can prove that the majority of that change is caused by mankind.
Once convinced, some of us would like to see what the optimal solutions might be i.e. work with it, or work against it.
At the moment the panic reaction is to call everyone who uses fossil fuels evil and tax the blazes out of the poor while providing eye-watering subsidies to the wealthy (e.g. solar panel subsidies that could only be afforded by the relatively wealthy).
Of course anyone on the IPCC jetting all over the world to exotic locations for a chat are clearly exempt!
Has no-one registered that amazon is not a country and it's actually the name of a group of mythological female Greek warriors! So maybe the Greeks should be contesting it or maybe a bunch of feminists should get together and contest it or maybe ICANN should grow a pair and give it to Amazon.
You make me laugh professor Arnaut! What kind of idiot would refer to a Haynes manual before dismantling and refurbishing something as complex as a gear box! I don't know, I really should have got a degree in gearboxology before even attempting it!
Well at least you didn't run off after dropping a lone comment, for that at least, I salute you.
Yes you should.
Yes, I managed it from reading a Haynes manual, that's how complex a gearbox is. Describing the everyday life of almost every gearbox in the world isn't an argument for your preferred solution.
Is the solution to these inefficiencies to bolt on a completely different drive mechanism? Really?
"In 2004, the Honda Racing F1 Team produced what they considered a “jewel in the crown” in race car design...a light weight composite gear box..."
Yes indeed, I suspect the BMW engineers never even left their armchair when they came up with the solution of a (Toyota) hybrid in an impractical car with a ridiculous price tag. They should clearly be awarded some sort of prize in recognition of their engineering brilliance. A golden armchair perhaps?
I think you will find that BMWs products are based on a sales strategy and not an engineering one. They're not really very well known for radical ideas, just small changes every few years so as not to scare off their middle management customers. And what have their brilliant engineers come up with as a solution? A hybrid! How novel.
Oh no! Let's start with a crap solution, make it less crap and convince the buyer that you have the best solution. Honestly you should be a car salesman. Let's just continue with your methodology...now that we've got a light engine, a heavy battery and a heavy DC motor, let's swap the heavy battery for a light one to drive a light starter which will get rid of the heavy DC motor and we'll add a light and simple gearbox (not one of those complex one's you previously specified). Voila! I'm a better car salesman than you!
I cannot understand why people bother with hybrids. It's the idiot's solution to a problem. You have an internal combustion engine carrying around an electric motor and it's batteries and you have an electric motor carrying around an internal combustion engine and it's fuel tank! To top it all you can even charge the batteries using the internal combustion engine for maximum inefficiency!
As for the idiots that think's a Tesla produces zero CO2...aaargh!!!
Reasonable priced at £130! Who would have thought that there were enough fools in the world to fork out this kind of money for a bit of plastic, cloth and a pair of small speakers? But then who would have thought there were enough fools to fork out stupid money for "training" shoes. Just another fashion statement.
