    In a tribal culture, there is "them" and "us"... Reality is, there are no sides. There is the path that will eventually be taken, and the process that was used to get there. IF that is going to be a concensus decision, there has to be real understanding and decision of the need. Once that is in place, someone's philosophy about it is irrellevent. Philosophy and theology are small useless bits of trash mixed into reality.

    I don't believe that anyone here is really interested in point-counterpoint with real data (a forum). I think I will bug out. You guys have a great weekend.

    More change afoot? http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/07/12/2301885.htm?section=justin

    Scientists are growing increasingly concerned for the future of the huge Wilkins ice shelf that joins on to the Antarctic coast.

    The latest satellite images suggest the ice shelf is disintegrating rapidly, and is now connected to the Antarctic mainland by a fairly small bridge of ice.

    However, the images show that the bridge itself is about to go, with cracks appearing and ice floes breaking off.

    Brian,

    It's all about percentages. The Wilkins Ice Shelf is 0.1% of the ice in Antarctica. A lump the size of Northern Ireland sound big, but it's only the six counties, not all of the island of Ireland.

    http://icecap.us/index.php/go/political-climate/misleading_reports_now_about_antarctica/

    Remember all the nonsense about the NW Passage being free of ice and the North Pole just water.

    http://wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com/2008/07/02/northwest-passage-still-impassable/

    CO2 is a fertilizer, not a pollutant.

    http://wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com/2008/06/08/surprise-earths-biosphere-is-booming-co2-the-cause/

    If a decent piece of the ice shelf were to break off, perhaps a few dozen tugs could haul it to Oz and mine it for water. I see snow has fallen in Canberra. 10 inches of snow represents one inch of rain. How deep is Lake Burley?

    Regards,

    Perry

    Thanks Per, Just ignor me, I only post stuff I feel may be of interest to you (news service) - no need to acknowledge.... Cheers

    Oh, are you still designing and planning a build/buy? How are things progressing?

    I generally chat with Heinz (Meanz Beanz) on the "Crude" thread and outlined my current position there minutes ago....

    The British summer has yet to arrive. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/ukweather/#no_url

    "Unveiling its long range forecast for the summer, the Met Office predicted this summer’s weather will follow a pattern of 'three fine days and a thunder storm’.

    Summer 2008 to be hot and wet
    Sunny days may be warmer than usual

    After a heatwave and drought two years ago and then record rainfall and widespread flooding last year, this summer is predicted to return to a pattern of sunny spells then rain.

    However with overall temperatures and rainfall expected to be higher than average, sunny days may be warmer than usual and rainy days wetter."

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1583795/British-summer-2008-to-be-warmer-and-wetter.html

    The Met Office is no longer fit for purpose, for two reasons. Sunspots do not figure in their calculations and because they employ John Mitchell, Chief Scientist of the Hadley Center.
