'Plastic cover on your dry cleaning'. I wouldn't worry about the plastic cover... Yes, the dry-cleaning solvents too..... That just reinforces the point I was making - carbon is everywhere and virtually impossible to avoid in modern life...... Many CO2-intensive products and services are extremely ...

We have fairly regular power cuts and corded phones still work - I keep one specifically for this purpose. :) I have had FTTC for a couple of years.

Well I am certainly glad to say I have never voted Tory and never will. When I was a student Maggie Thatcher was the PM - enough said as to why I hated the Tories - so much so that I participated in a number of student marches from Queens Uni into the City Hall in Belfast demonstrating against vario...

Biff, when you go there I hope you will welcome the refugees but tell them that the UK is a place where we tolerate all religions and most ideals but if their religion or ideals cannot live with others could you politely suggest that they find somewhere else to live. We do not like people who murde...

Buying £1000 of Gold will not make your pockets heavy - Just over an ounce of the yellow metal! Buying £1000 of Silver might make it noticeable though - 1 Kilo in each pocket. :D I think Silver is a better bet - it has a very big upside and currently has a gold to silver ratio of about 80:1 which is...

Well that's two more PS members whose posts I won't be reading in the future. Maybe you two should do as much campaigning against FGM and the rest as I have done rather than posting libels. Do you not realise how childish this comment is? Of course the easiest thing in the world would be for me to ...

However, it remains that I don't think we should be trying to promote a global war between the adherents of Islam (of all of its different varieties) and everyone else. You may not think so, but there seems to be a lot of extremists on the Islam side, ISIS for a start, who are hell bent on it and i...

Biff has also completely ignored my point about "sustainable" growth. If you can't argue against it ignore it hoping that it will go away so you and your belief system isn't compromised. Of course he has. That is what he does, as outlined very clearly by UE. Disingenuous is the best work ...

As predicted, Biff chooses to ignore what is said because he has no answer. Again it is plain for all to see. I choose to ignore posts that are from people who are repeatedly personally abusive. To say that " he has no answer." is not true. Prove it. And as for posting links, that one doe...

I know what I think of the *ankers, but if you choose to give them credence that is up to you. :twisted:

From what I read on the MSM it certainly seems like there is some global warming.

I haven't personally experienced or been able to measure any in my little tiny patch of the planet.

Wouldn't you agree that continuous growth is unsustainable, Biff?

Well done UE, your understanding of Biff's shortcomings and concise elaboration of the internal contradiction of his belief system has made it very clear for everybody, with an ounce of sense, to see. As predicted, Biff chooses to ignore what is said because he has no answer. Again it is plain for a...
