    Which was first predicted in 1959. With the destruction of rainforests and the extensive building of coal fired power stations by China any reductions in carbon production by England is like trying to bail out a swimming pool with a tea spoon.

    I think Teddy is referencing a New Ice Age.

    I don't know what teddy is referring to Steve. If you read the article then click onto the link "Read a critique of this article by David Winter" it covers quite a bit more than this very comical "make news at any cost" effort from Stuff NZ.
    Quite that boy at the back.

    Colin, I have to totally disgree with you here; in fact, Winter's {no pun intended} critique of the article reaches precisely the polar {pun intended} opposite conclusion!

    When I was 10 years old ( a little while ago) a new ice age was being predicted because the Earth was cooling. Personally I have more faith in my little bit of seaweed than all these green scientists.

    Colin, My reading of Winter's critique of that article with the "blue sun" is that it contradicted the article's very premise: namely, that we are heading for another Ice Age instead of much warmer conditions. Unless--of course--I misunderstood what he was saying.

    Steve that was my point when I said:

    hence I could not understand why you disagreed with me.
    That we are in a trough between two ice ages is IMO correct but are we going down hill out of one or up hill into one ?? to make assumptions that we are entering one and treat it as fact is not good reporting they will need to do better which is the point being made, I think but what do I know?

    @ JHC, Sorry, Colin, You are right; I must have misread your initial comment on the article. As far as your knowledge on this topic, it is no less than many of the "experts" on both sides of this issue.

    In the Spring a hosepipe ban was announced as the reservoirs were at a dangerously low level. We have just had the wettest Summer since 1912!!!! The ban was soon lifted and the reservoirs are full.

    I judge our Summers partly on when we start lighting the fires. Not only have we had to have the central heating on this Summer but also lit the fire in July. I am just about to admit defeat and will start the fire again this weekend. It has been cold in the evening for the last week or so.

    Latest research has proved that the sub audible noise generated by wind turbines causes illness. The most common symptoms are nausea, insomnia and general mental disturbance. The generating industry has refuted these claims and claims that their research shows that noise levels are too low to cause these things, but they do not measure sub audible frequencies as they say they are not relevant. The symptoms are also similar to those who suffer from sick building syndrome, largely caused by air conditioning especially where the cooling fans were running out of sync.

    We have had the longest wettest winter that I can remember, but the experts say we are in a good position regarding global warming as we produce enough food to feed double our population "big deal" the Chinese know this and they are buying up some of our larger farms with the blessing of our government, if only they would make an offer on my house.
