    I am totally against fission much too risky and expensive ask the Russian, Americans and of course the Japs, we have some wind farms and they seem to create no problems and we have a lot of Hydro production.

    The ice shelves in the Artic are reducing but latest scientific reports show that the ones in the Antartic are getting much bigger. This has been blamed.......wait for it...............on global warming????????
    Of course, how silly of me.

    Dear Br. Colin,

    Please, don't become as daft as a brush like the climate/environazis...

    @ Teddy and CD, Could you cite any of the scientific studies to which you refer? In other words, who conducted them and by whom were they paid? In any event, for all of our sakes, I hope you lot are right in your skepticism vis a vis this phenomenon.

    The melting ice from the Arctic falls off and slips down to the Antarctic ... TRUE!

    Yeah right! - waiting with held breath.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    If I can just say: it is common knowledge that we (earth) go through climatic cycles, the question is whether the present change is man made or not, and just to add to the mix "there is more money to be made in trying to fix it through carbon credits etc than taking the other point of view. I am a sceptic until proved otherwise.

    The latest article about the Antartic was in the Mail. I will,try and see if it is available on line. Also another article which shows that there has been no increase in the Earths temperature over the last twelve years, also printed in the Mail. Over a forty years period ( from 1950 I believe) there was a reduction in temperature, followed by a slight increase, followed by a stabilisation. I am not saying we do not need to take care of our planet, but the EU demanding we close two coal fired power stations when China is building one every week is nothing short of a joke. Responsibility is one thing, having the p*** taken out of us by scare mongers is another. There are far too many people making a horrendous amount of money over GLOBAL WARMING without doing anything particularly helpful. What is the ecological cost of WIND FARMS? I will also try and find the report on increased sun spot activity, and the effect it has on the Earth.

    Thanks, Teddy. As I said earlier, I just hope that you and the other "skeptics" prove to be right on this one, for all our sakes.

    When the only solution to a problem is to screw us out of a lot of money....I become sceptical. Green energy is costing us a fortune in England and making our manufacturers un competitive.
    As I said before there are a few people making a hell of a lot of money out of the rest of us.
