Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Can I ask TP why all those scentists who according to him don't think there's a largely human made climate change going on don't gang up and write a report together or at least sign a petition? About 3000 scientists in the field (if I remember correctly) did get together for the UN and delivered a report that made it very clear that human activity is changing the climate on Earth. The nay-sayers should be able to get one or two thousand together for a second opinion?

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

From what I've read other scientists  did
But it received No media coverage .

Don't get me wrong  I'm not the anti-Greta
Just a person who doesn't  believe we only
Have 10 years left to save the planet, something
Which has been predicted  by Experts since the
60s  Recently  ( I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the forest park with glaciers ) had to remove their warning signs about how by 2020 all the glaciers would be gone. As they're All still there.

Once again, I'm not fighting with anyone, just
That it's not the 100% Fact, that  many would have you think, just because you're passionate  about something doesn't  make you right.

One example is what's the biggest cause of temp increase ?
It's not co2, ...... it's Water vapour.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I think you should try to find that alleged report. There could be one, but I doubt many scientists were involved and I wouldn't be surprised if there are good scientific reasons why it didn't get much coverage.
Has the scientific community really said we only have ten years left to stop the worst effects of climate change since the 60's? I find that unlikely, especially since the theory that human CO2 output changes the climate wasn't very wid espread back then. There is also the fact that the climate didn't start changing a lot until the last 15-20 years (I'm talking about in modern times) , so the scientists didn't have a lot of material to study back in the day to make clear conclusions.
The example about the glaciers in the forrest park reminds me off all the stories about the old uncle who smoked for eighty years or so and was still fit. Single examples don't prove much and we all now know smoking is harmfull, no matter how fit the uncle is.
The glacier closest to where I live is gone, but that too doesn't prove much. I bet no scientist ever said those particular glaciers would remain or og, but they did say many would decrease in size or vanish and they have.
We can't be 100% sure exactly how and how fast climate change will happen, but the real discussion in hte Scientific community isn't on if it will happen, but how. I'm not sure about climate change is real because I'm passionate about it, I'm sure because the data and the science tells us. Scientists can't publish a paper and conclude that this will happen because they are passionate, thay have to present the data and the work.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Absolutely no problem with your opinion and beliefs, I'm only asking for the same
consideration. As I think your original point was people who take a different opinion
on climate change should not be given a platform to express their opinions ?
I'm a democrat and I believe in free speech, The idea of stopping debate on a subject
is very like 30s Germany where you couldn't criticise the chancellor

If our world is finished in 10 to 12 years time ( as the Climate extremists tell us ) Why
can I still get a mortgage of 25 years   ?   Why can I and others buy Beach front property
aren't the sea levels going to rise ?  For example of the 3000 scientists you mention could
you tell me how many of them were actual Climate scientists ?

Although Once again my point isn't actually about climate change ( used to be global
warming, until the temp started to drop ) But rather about the right of others to
disagree with any perceived opinion.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

My opinion and belief is that we should look at what science can tell us. Climate change is not a religion, it's a field of science. I have never said you or anyone else aren't allowed to express their own opinion in the matter, I just disagree based on scentific fact.
Any comparisons to nazi Germany is neither here nor there.

The scientists don't say the world is finished in 10-15 years. It won't catch fire and burn in 2030 or 2035. No-one is saying that. What they do say is we got until that time to lower CO2 emision to keep the average temperature from going up more than 2 degrees celsius. If we are able to do this we may avoid the worst effects of climate change in the future.
Where did you get the idea the temperature has started to drop? The world’s five warmest years have all occurred since 2015 with nine of the 10 warmest years occurring since 2005. These are numbers from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - U.S. Department of Commerce.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

It's not about having mine or your facts. I base my opinion on the scientific consensus and you don't. I really urge you to try find that allegedscientific report you mentioned that was signed by so many scientists who don't accept human made climate change. I especially uge you to read up on the conclusions of the UN report on climate change and the many, many other scientific reports that say climate change is happening and it's a danger. Until you do so I agree there is no point in us discussing this further.

Yes. Uncontroversial stuff like abortion, Israel and Trump  ajb007/smile

In my opinion the best smell is (or rather was  ajb007/crap ) the smell of the fresh baked aniskringler my grandma used to make. I don't know if there's an Englsih word for aniskringler, but here they are:

Back to the more controversial topic: the signature ingredience of aniskringle is anis seed.
Like most baked wares they tastes and smells best when they're really fresh, but grandma would only let me eat them fresh if they got a little bit burnt. So I tried to distract her by telling stories and talking in the hope she would burn some  ajb007/lol

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I had a love of Casio watches for a short while, I find them tremendous value, well made
and thought I'd show off my collection, so In no particular order ......


https://i.postimg.cc/YL93Vqtd/Casio-Standart-Digital-W-800-HG-9-AV-1.jpg
This is the 800h cost around £15, and a great every day watch



https://i.postimg.cc/JHGNx6Qg/casio-Royale.jpg
The Casio Royale, My first buy ,WestwardDrift pointed out it was on special offer on amazon so
I got one, It is supposed to sort of look like Bond's Seiko in Octopussy  ajb007/wink


https://i.postimg.cc/WFfrdmP7/MTD-1079-1-AVCF-600x600.jpg
The NTD 1079, a more traditional looking divers watch


https://i.postimg.cc/XGXB6ZyB/DW-290-1-VS.jpg
Another Movie watch, only this one did appear in the first Mission Impossible film, an amazing value
watch 200m water resistance and a very, very accurate time keeper.



https://i.postimg.cc/2VYj4b8d/dw-291.jpg
My latest the dw-291, I just loved the look of it, and it arrived yesterday.
Total cost ..... around £160 odd quid. Admittedly not an Omega or Rolex but if I drown in 200 meters
of water whoever finds my Body will get a nice watch out of it  ajb007/wink

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

There is much to be said for some of the cheaper brands. You can wear them and not be afraid of damaging or losing them.

I know Casio is a good brand. I had a Lorus digital watch for some years. I wore it through my army service and it was put through much very rough use. It always kept perfect time. It was worn in water and in very hot and dusty conditions and only needed to have one new battery once in that time. I think it was waterproof to 50 metres - but I never tested it that way. When the rubber strap finally broke after perhaps eight years I threw it away. I really should have a new strap fitted.

The watch I wear today is a limit. I have had this for about five years. It keeps very good time also and never needs to be adjusted. It has had only one battery.

I'd like to remind everyone of the new poll about who we want as the next James Bond. I've removed the names of eight actors who's aged out. I've also added about a dozen new names. We won't get a new Bond movie in seven months, so why not find out what we want beyond that?
