Re: Climate change.

https://earth.org/data_visualization/the-time-lag-of-climate-change/
This is a short piece concerned with what we expect in the near future.
It suggests that the time lag between a pulse of CO2...

Re: Beyond Bloody Sunday - NI Politics

Let me address some points one at a time.
You ask whether killings by state forces should be deemed legal whilst others illegal.
My view is that each should be dealt with equally, investigated by...

Re: Beyond Bloody Sunday - NI Politics

I'm sorry but I'm a simple minded fellow, I don't understand the issues that dictate that one dead murdered body should be treated differently to another dead murdered body.
To me it doesn't matter...

Re: Beyond Bloody Sunday - NI Politics

Addressing outstanding responsibility for massacres has always been something that I've found difficult to come to terms with.
This 'one man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist' has always...

Re: Labour on the ropes

What you describe is a labour leadership that's afraid of it's own shadow, of a leader fearful of opening the front door in case it rains, of sanctioning internal critics in case they attract...

Re: Climate change.

That's as I read it, but the problem I raised is that not everyone will act as responsibly as that suggested because countries act in their short term self interest, if otherwise we wouldn't have...

Re: Climate change.

I chanced across this today https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-62422873.
It's an example of issues that must be addressed not to reduce carbon emissions but to reduce the increases that are...

Re: Who will replace Boris?

It'll be an interesting inter-election interlude.
Whoever becomes PM must realise that their party has fallen into the pit of everlasting stench and they will be treading water trying to slither out...

Re: Inflation

Inflation is one of those events that destabilise society.
It doesn't go away quickly and it's effects get worse with time, especially for anyone near the breadline... and those who aren't find that...

Re: Ukraine

As you say, I sit in an armchair, I comment on what I see reported, I draw opinionated conclusions.
Eventually, if those poor souls on the ground survive, we'll see together how a settlement to this...

Re: Who will replace Boris?

William Hague, another one of those politicians who just can't help themselves spotting a bandwagon and jumping on it.
I'm afraid he lost credibility for me as foreign secretary when prancing about...

Re: Ukraine

Of course you do, I expected no less.
It's the argument from one who is never wrong.
The deductions I make in my post, as you say are difficult to prove and invite discussion, I ask the questions,...

Re: Ukraine

I'm sorry but where do you conclude that?
I've argued in the past that I believed the war to have been allowed to happen and that Russian threats were ignored but I don't think you'll find me...

Re: Ukraine

Opportunities, they pop up all over the place.

I'm a cynic and I tend to wonder about why people do what they do.
So let's take the much vaunted sanctions against Russia, in particular those oil...

Re: What are you watching right now?

Just started the 3 episode 1988 series 'A Very British Coup'.
As good as I remember.
Also watched 'The War Game' a few days ago, the 1966 BBC film.
It's a gaunt and frightening film made at the...

Re: Climate change.

Unfortunately this is an argument the government will use to do nothing.
The current (no pun intended) policy is to generate on demand and to that end the generating capacity is sized to meet the...

Re: Climate change.

This is one of those very rare occasions where governmental action could actually prove beneficial... if they could be bothered to get their act together.
It would require that all EV owners be...

Re: Labour on the ropes

Had you taken the trouble to read the post you'd have understood that it had nothing to to with Brexit but was a comment about the personality of a man who, for good or ill, was able to connect with...

Re: Labour on the ropes

Re: Labour on the ropes

I'm in no better position than you and I rather suspect that Brexit and Johnson did act to remove a few bricks from the red wall.
But I suspect that electorates as a whole tend to vote from gut...

Re: Labour on the ropes

The last election was severely distorted by Brexit and the hangover of an electorate still suffering from being ignored and...

Re: Climate change.

So called Climate Change, or what I'd rather term it as Global Energy Balance Instability, is one of those phenomena that's so misunderstood by those who should know better because they've put...
