Global Warming

re: Global Warming

The conventional line on this is the effect on the UK will be to make it colder but with raised sea level. Our weather is driven by the gulf stream that keeps the UK warm and slightly damp (stop laughing at the back). As the oceans heat up the gulf stream will divert further north and west missing the UK and our weather will then be driven by cold fronts from the north (arctic).

Don't be stupid man. It's Global WARMING, not global COLDING!

re: Global Warming

The correct and currently accepted term is Climate Change, since some places are getting hotter while other places are getting colder.

It's unseasonably warm for the end of October. I was sat outside in a T-shirt drinking a pint of Red Stripe in Leeds City Centre yesterday!

re: Global Warming

Grantus its a scientific fact ... the whole globe is warming daily except England - well just the north east actually between hartlepool and robin hoods bay.
Just our luck eh !

bring on the warm weather I say

re: Global Warming

And, if it was getting colder, surely 'global cooling' would be the corect term as 'to cold' is not a verb. So wrong on all counts

re: Global Warming

One question that knowone is putting forward is, What will taxing us an absolute bomb on green taxes do to help global warming? Think about it were only a small island and even if we had no emissions what so ever India,Pakistan,China,USA would cover those emissions in weeks.But what will taxing us do?
Im all for helping the planet but I wont do it if the bigger countrys do sod all about it.

re: Global Warming

I can't work out why people still have greenhouses in their gardens. Surely someone should have banned them ages ago.

re: Global Warming

There was a letter in a recent Economist from a Professor of Oceanography at MIT who said that all this talk of changes in the Gulf Stream was ballocks because the Gulf Stream is primarily wind driven and wouldn't be affected by the warming of the ocean.

re: Global Warming

Seriously, I must admit that in general I dont really agree with green taxes. Or rather, the predictable way in which they will be enforced, which will simply be, driving the price of motoring up, for example.

Meaning driving a car legally will be pushed away from the poorer members of society.

Not right in my opinion.

We need more thoughtful and innovative ways of addressing this.

Why would it drive north?

grantus Posted on 30/10 13:52
re: Global Warming

No, what about massive taxes to park your car, or charges to drive it down the road? Would that bother you?

The Communist states of the 20th Century started the global warming effects by mass producing armory and eating lots of cabbage soup.

Get stuffed, Tarquin.

Saying you don't care about global warming is like saying you don't care about the future of your kids. You might as well give him a pack of Marlboro, a bottle of whisky and a Big Mac while you're at it.

re: Global Warming

a slight exaggeration oh political one. I suppose you dont use deodorant do you?

Didnt I hear something that cows produce methane from farting?

littlejimmy Posted on 30/10 14:02
re: Global Warming

No, I like the natural smell, oh blithely ignorant (and proud of it) one.

If you had been concentrating for the last 20 years, you'd know that deodorants are now CFC-free.

grantus Posted on 30/10 14:03
re: Global Warming

That sounds like an intoxicating combination. Tabs, whisky and a Big Mac.

Count me in!
