    Anyone out there buying this self-serving nonsense that the Libs & Dems have been shoving in our faces for the past dozen years??? - Just another scheme to bilk the public out of even more of our hard-earned income IMO. Hybrid cars, fuel-cell vehicles, everyone going "green" to help save the planet, etc. - What a bunch of codswallop!! :evil:

    Opinions :?: :?:

    think we will all be driving / riding fuel efficient ( = slow & boring ) vehicles in the future, so I say fill ya boots whilst you still can.

    I've long ben cynical about the whole thing. The Earth naturally gets colder and warmer. And even if it is fossil fuels, Asia is much worse than us. And Brown gave the Chinese £50m to help develop clean burn fuel technology. I wonder which Swiss bank account that ended up in.

    Just read a book Called Global warming and other Bollocks makes for interesting reading. Gives you some food for thought about the whole situation.
     
  7. Yep, methane hardly gets amention as a greenhouse gas and its far more significant than CO2. Cattle contribute more greenhouse gases than burning fossil fuels. Perhaps we should kill all the cattle and become eco vegans lol.

    Does that mean that all the herds of Wilder beasts, Zebra's and other herbivores on the plains of Africa should be culled also?
    Personally i think its all a money spinning scam to make more money from Joe public,
    when you think on it, all limestone and chalk are made up of co2, when the deposits of both of these were being layd down the earths temperature was anything up to 16 degrees warmerthan it is now and the earth still cooled to its present temperature, another thing if water expands when frozen and three quarters of a iceberg is under water then how is the sea level going to rise? One thing that may happen due to a lack of resources as man consumes them is that the earth will not be able to sustain the growing human population. Their in lies the single issue that neither big business nor governments want to mention because it would not be good for either of their business's

    Totally with you on the "rising sea level" nonsense that is constantly touted...if the polar ice cap were to melt - nothing happens - zero, zip!! Now conceivably, if ice that covered land, like say Antartica were to melt then yes, the ocean levels would rise...but really, does anyone consider this realistic??? Just any scam to get public money & to put the average person under even more governmental control

    Not only is GW a way to charge us more for the privilege of being in the "Wonderful" EEC, It's a way of controlling the populace... No GW when the Russians were coming was there... ;)
    "They" need something to protect "us" from. Yeah right.


    The best Illusions are the ones where you are looking at what the Illusionist wants you to, while he makes xyz appear. Just watch out for whatever it is they're trying to "get away with" while we're watching the Environment. Like we're spoiled for choice there. :lol:

    There is a 2004 novel about this by Michael Crichton called "State of Fear", not gospel truth and has had a rough ride from the environmentalist sector, but well worth a read.


    Just an aside, the Chinese are paying Oxford Scientists with some of that 50 Million, how do I know ? Coz my second cousin James from Guernsey ( :ugeek: ) is one of them. He's from the clever half of the family obviously. :roll: I guess all the rest is going to Switzerland...

    Too right, Deegee
    - It was one thing when we had the Cold War & the East Bloc countries were our enemies, but now they're pushing forward the concept WE are in fact are the enemy. And at the very same time as Obama is making his nuclear-weapons-free-world speech to the Nobel crowd in Oslo, - outside the blue vapor-trails of a failed Russian ballistic missile test can be seen!

    Did you know Ed, that SEVEN times the number of slaves who were ever sent to the USA were sent to Brazil!!
