    He lived for 76 years. Not bad for a merkin who was born in 1879.

    Something tells me that he would see climate change for what it really is, a way the 0.1% can place a tax on the worlds middle class to fund their World Government ambitions.

    Imagine if he was born in 1979 and was now head coach of the Eels. Going over the game plan with the 'boys' would be an experience even for him.

    Consensus science is for absolute dickbags. The problem with climate science is that, as a discipline, it exists purely so that climate scientists can pat each other on the back and confirm each other's theories. Potentially while standing around a Sao.

    Climate change denial is for absolute dickbags, also, mind you. Although trolling Phart about it back in the day was fun, it would take an absolute deadshit to deny the evidence. The question isn't yes or no, it's how, why, and to what extent?

    Something tells me he would just be interested in the science. Which sadly, doesn’t describe too many people at the moment.

    It's slightly convex.

    I'm making an English bitter, to which I added oats. I was thinking of dry hopping but I've only got Perle and Saaz, which I was told wouldn't really go with it. But I don't care if it's an english bitter, I just want a nice fresh flavourful beer. You think those hops would ruin it?

    The only period where increasing temperatures have matched increasing carbon emissions was ~1970-2000.

    At all other times since we have had direct temperature readings (~1880), the two have not matched.

    Too many paddle wheels makes the water travel backwards.

    Even during a period of long term warming, there are short periods of cooling due to climate variability. Short term cooling over the last few years is largely due to a strong La Nina phase in the Pacific Ocean and a prolonged solar minimum.

    So there was a high profile identity convicted in a Victorian Court of very serious crimes on Tuesday apparently but media in this country not allowed to say who and what courtesy of a suppression order but if you think about it long enough, or do some quick googling you'll probably work it out fairly quickly....

    I believe the person has another charge before the court and the suppression order is to ensure that the second trial is not prejudiced.
