    Why is it when there is snow about , we not hear speeches of global warming on the TV and radio at the moment.

    Was it all a big ploy to get us to pay (green) prices for items.:cry:

    Or, when when we get our x1 sunny day a year, around August ,that`s when they tell us, how we are going to burn up unless we pay a super green tax:BigGrin:

    No, the treehuggers arn't lying. The cold weather here IS part of global warming ... but I see some people still don't realise the urgency of us doing something about it. :Sad: As a treehugger, I despair for the world, if it is still here, in another fifty years. :Cool:

    Trouble is Joy , we in the UK although doing our bit , only contribute I believe around 2% of global emissions so however good we are , we will make little change.
    The Chinese , Russians, Americans and South Americans need to clean up their acts but are reluctant to do so.
    One area where we could make a difference is to stop buying hardwood furniture for home or garden, they tell us it is all from sustainable sources but since when will Teak, Iroko and other hardwoods mature in less than fifty years?
    This timber is all from de forestation in the rain forests. :Eeek:

    Never have believed in this so called man made global warming, the earth warming up and cooling down is all a natural process it was happening long before there were humans, in fact there was a piece in the paper the other day that proved that the predicted figures were wildly exaggerated by those involved in generating such useless information. in fact in the last few years it has actually been cooling again, I am a firm believer that it is all a scam on a global scale to create business that would otherwise not exist as well as invent yet another way to tax us. Before people start saying it is because pollution has been reduced therefore the temperature has started dropping back, our pollution might have dropped in the UK and even the EU but it has massively increased in countries like India and China.

    It may be March but this is nothing unusual.

    It has always been more likely to have snow at Easter than at Christmas.......

    Easter 1-3 April 1983 - this was the snowiest Easter with Scotland, the Midlands and Kent getting up to 10 cm of snow.
    Over the past 45+ years, snow has fallen quite regularly, even in lowland areas. Snow fell in 1958, 1965, 1970, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1978 and 2008.

    Watching BBC News they are talking of the "extreme" weather as the "Headline" story.
    This snowfall was very well forecast, yet once again roads are closed, schools are closed, there are power outages.

    Will Britain ever learn to cope with a bit of snow............:Doh::Doh:




    p.s. I hope Funster M1wor has now definitely cancelled his plan to "walk" up Ben Nevis next week.....

    If 10000 years ago we did not have had GLOBAL WARMING (climate change) the World would still be in an ice age. No cars, power stations etc etc then so what caused it.Bet the tree huggers will not answer that. The climate on our planet has always changed for millions of years and always will.

    We are told to switch off everything and save this, that and the other. Do this, do that, walk on one foot to save leather, blah, blah, blah, it's always the peasants of this world that must do their bit.
    Yet when i was in Gibraltar last year, i wandered amongst the multi-million pound boats by the harbour and the electricity cables that were plugged into them were like an RVs sewer hose!
    It's a case of it doesn't matter if you're rich, just keep the lower class at bay...and make them feel guilty.
    The private yachts, jets, helicopters, Rolls Royces, Hummers, and heated swimming pools obviously do not contribute to climate change in any way, it's the little red light that is on your telly that is doing all the damage.

    Cause and effect

    Global warming is a fact, (the cause).. climate change is the result.. (the effect).

    The real debate is how much man has been responsible... and if he has, can he slow it down or stabilize it.. ?
    If we accept that we are at least partly responsible doing nothing is not an option..

    Our government are big 'fans' of wind power... that is an absolute waste of money.. we can never supply our energy needs from big fans.. Not only are they are a blot on the landscape, no one wants them and they are unreliable.. we need Nuclear Power.. and we need it NOW .. not in 25 years time..

    BUT who do you believe? There are compelling arguments for and against the idea of climate change.

    There are lies, damn lies and statistics.

    Thats all well and good Jim if you can believe it because next year they'll bring out a new set of figures that will contradict these. The problem is we've been lied to by every politician that gets into power we now don't believe a word they say and most people see this an another excuse to pile more tax on us.

    I've travelled through some of the worst polluting counties in the world the worst being China and it is a problem but taxing us to death is'nt going to sort it out when the worst polluting countries won't even sign the agreement to fight pollution. We create a tiny amount of the worlds pollution so where is all our money going???

    lets not forget all the volcanic activity around the world:Doh:
    lets not forget the earth shifting on it axis over the last century or two:Doh:
    the only thing i can see that effects weather systems.is Desalination of our sea's that changes sea currant's that push warmer water further north than it used to having an affect on weather patterns.

    Politicians as we all know are great at bending truths to suit their own ends.. ie lie.. it's the nature of the beast.. I wouldn't believe anything they say either..

    We have to look at independent research by scientists who have no political axe to grind or affiliated to any organisation or company that would benefit from the results of their research .. ie, not beholden to them..

    There are numerous sites with detailed figures of the Global temperatures stretching back thousands of years.. all show a dramatic rise since the start of the industrial revolution..

    It would be nieve to think we can pump billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere annually and it have no effect on global temperature which causes climate change to happen.

    This is an article from Nature, the International Journal of Science where they explain where the figures come from .. not from politicians, but from dedicated scientists
    http://www.nature.com/news/global-temperatures-are-close-to-11-000-year-peak-1.12564


    This debate has been done to death on numerous Fun threads.. it's always the same result.. those who say it's just a load of smoke and mirrors to justify tax increases and those who think otherwise..

    nothing will change by us debating, no ones opinion will change .. nothing I say will ever change anyone's view.. but reading independent reports may just help to clear the fog..

    This reminds me of the other big con, the millenium bug! Remember that load of tosh? People were panicking so much they cleaned out supermarkets, and even built shelters. Planes were going to fall from the sky, even our prison was so brainwashed they asked for volunteers to come in over that period, I did a spate of nights because they were paying 5 times the standard rate :thumb:. So 2 nights before the event, new years eve 1999, and 2 nights following, to help correct everything that was supposed to go wrong...........And...........

    Not a dickie bird :Blush:. Not a squeak :Laughing: . Nothing :Rofl1:. What a load of crap! What a nice earner :thumb:!
