    Totally agree it's a twattish post, both in the sense of no supporting link or explanation and also in the sense of being a cunt laughing at the situation, but the conversation has moved on since and I'll leave it. If nothing else it server as a (probably entirely unnecessary) reminder of what a knob Job is.

    It isn't about living like swampy, it is just many of them seem to be on the completely opposite end of the scale while quite happy to tell the majority how they should save the planet which is even funnier when you block those same people when trying to use the greener forms of transport.

    I'll stand by the fact while your opinion runs free your environmentalism only goes as far as your departure gate, something that you certainly aren't alone in.

    His liberty, please don't make out being arrested by our police is some sort of hardship.

    ALERT! ALERT! Incoming pointless circular argument ALERT! ALERT! :p

    You just know he turned up with a Guard photographer and asked the police officer in charge what would get him arrested but safely removed.

    To be honest, I'm a lot more concerned about the treatment of the protestors in France and Catalonia currently, on which our resident protest sympathisers seem remarkably silent.

    I'm guessing they're the wrong sort of protestors. Self-determination, bad. Bringing London to a standstill to bring in a political system which has failed everywhere it's been tried? Good.

    Calling me a protest sympathiser seems to imply that if somebody somewhere was protesting in support of paedophilia I'd support it. So, nice try, but foxtrot oscar :)

    Also saying "look look- this is happening over here!" is plain whataboutery.

    Not what they're asking for. Not even a nice try, it's the same old shit. (As well as from @Embattle who - alert alert - doesn't see the hypocrisy in his own post...).

    I'm only quoting their own founder in the article I shared earlier. But then you're daft enough to think I drive a big-ass BMW, when it's pretty much the same size as your Civic. Just a lot faster. And better on fuel :p

    Civic has gone. Ran it into the ground as it's the environmentally responsible thing to do - environmental cost is largely production, not fuel consumption.

    One car family now.

    Eat my patronising winning :p

    Seems to be his preference despite encouragement otherwise.

    I don't want to oppress him as he self-identifies his preferred designation.​

    Profit-making-companies (and the politicians that backed them after being lobbied) can't be trusted to give honest assesment of profit-making industry in the UK - and environmentalists (who were roundly and widely derided) were correct in their assessments non-shocker.

    Anyway, some people and some tories will still have gotten considerably richer off the back of this clear idiocy (clear, because everyone knows we can't afford to burn the fossil fuels we already know about (yet we're still, as a public, funding exploration for new gas and oil fields)).

    Fracking = we stand to make money, so lets fuck the locals over, the local environment, yadda yadda yadda for something we shouldn't be doing anyway.

    Or..modellers are guesstimating on the fly.

    Their track record is abysmal, even if its mostly the press, activists and politicians grabbing at clickbait.

    Over the last twenty years they have made the boy who cried wolf look like an amateur, and that is without a shadow of a doubt the main reason the public are so sceptical.

    The Inconvenient truth is 2 hours of utter bollocks.

    There is a tiny bit of truth to that but long term data is your friend.

    Therefore the longer this is studied the better the results. This applies to everything.

    You cant discount the previous studies as they still form the basis of the current.

    Yes, but I fear that theres an entrenched political and social pressure that is twisting conclusion and investigation.

    The independence and impartiallity of climate science is long gone, and I can understand that given the stakes.
    If we are to hold time on the usual measures to limit consensus as a driving force then we need to make it official...not denounce heretics.

    Just come out and say it...its too important, we need to silence dissent to respond to the enormity of the risk.

    Or a political stunt to get more votes for the coming election.
