Never heard of the RSPCA following this one through. Maybe mates get treated differently when they punch and hit horses, in public, on film.

Welcome to the EUSSR. Hope yet, a turkey voting for Xmas? You're either on the gravy train or in the gutter so the average is OK to the average Euro beurocrat (sic).
"Just the usual drivel about the fight against youth unemployment" at 62% in Greece & Spain's 56.5% becomes 25% Euro-wide & therefore only half the problem.

The current Euro set-up is a temporary arrangement, it's collapsing from within, along with carbon trading, from excessive govt debt, subsidies & regulation & a currency that no-one owns. Not long to go.

"Background: Healthy diets are supposed to be more environmentally friendly because they rely mainly on plant-based foods, which have lower greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs) per unit weight than do animal-based foods...
Conclusion: Despite containing large amounts of plant-based foods, self-selected diets of the highest nutritional quality are currently not those with the lowest diet-related GHGEs."

nico insinuates Roy Spencer hasn't got a clue, yet his data sets are accepted scientific observations & used by the UN's IPCC along with RSS, Hadcrut & GISS-NASA.
http://www.drroysp encer.com/latest-global-temperatu res/
"Note that in the early part of the record, Version 6 has somewhat faster warming than in Version 5.6, but then the latter part of the record has reduced (or even eliminated) warming, producing results closer to the behavior of the RSS satellite dataset."

13/10/15 05:08 AM
"Climate models runs for the IPCC's 4th Assessment Report suggest that, with an increase in greenhouse gases of 1% p.a., annual mean surface air temperatures in Antarctic sea-ice zone over the 21stC would increase by 0.2-0.3C /decade (WMO 2007). There would be a corresponding decrease in the extent of sea ice. Large parts of the high interior of the Antarctic would experience surface air temperature rises of more than 0.3C /decade"
Note 3rd & 4th graphs, Arctic & Antarctic temperatures since 1979. Both UAH & RSS show Antarctica cooling. http://www.climate4you.com/Polar% 20temperatures.htm
13/10/15 02:05 AM
Further, for any AGW/climate changer's illumination, the satellite temperature data sets were established to present a global perspective that would also act as a check on land only based thermometer data.
"The term "upper air" refers to the part of the atmosphere well above Earth's surface. The temperature of the atmosphere in this region is a fundamental climate variable."

nico doesn't hesitate to slip the boot into Roy Spencer's godliness. Yet Spencer is a custodian of the UAH satellite temperature data set which is accepted by the UN's IPCC and the Pope. If nico knew anything other than blather, he would know each of RSS & UAH satellite temperature data sets shows no & little warming this century, despite increased levels of atmospheric CO2. UAH & RSS concurrence.

Apologists of the socialist/green agenda will always deny the stench of inconvenient data that proves them idiots. Simply put, over the last 60 years, atmospheric CO2 has risen over 50% higher than at any other time during the last 400,000 years. However, temperatures at Vostok during that time have been flat to down. The implication is that climate sensitivity is zero, & that past (lagging) changes in CO2 are due to outgassing & absorption of CO2 by the oceans. Ditto nico's New Scientist article. http://blogs.edf.org/climate411/2 007/06/29/human_cause-3/
12/10/15 10:13 AM
To believe & "accept climate change is a serious issue to be dealt with", is an good indicator of an intelligence test fail.
Here are three examples whereby data totally disproves the quoted assertion.
1. Vostok ice-core data showed that temperatures rises preceded CO2 increases.
2. Climate models predictions have grossly over-estimated the actual temperatures achieved.
(See Spencer, Climate models fail)
3. The logarithmic diminution of CO2 on temperatures as concentrations rise.

If wind and solar are so viable then they should manage without gobbling subsidies. In effect, "renewables" are not industries as such, but a bunch of people sucking the life out of the rest of the real economy and like the whole belief in AGW thing it's a defacto intelligence test to see how dopey people really can be.

Hi Frank, the poor global warming/climate change/climate disruption/ecological bottleneck ahead things are increasingly finding their pet "feary" is based on outright lies & innuendo. RSS, one of the respected temperature data set shows an 18 year flat trend. This alone debunks the CO2/AGW line, as there can be no exceptions to a robust theory. Bad luck warmers & scamsters, back to the socialist manifesto & see if you can weasel up some other humanity hating dystopia. http://www.woodfortrees.org/plot/ rss/from:1997.1/trend/plot/rss/fr om:1997.1

The biggest problem for AGWers is that they can't keep track of their lies. Example, Antarctic Ice Cores, repeated ad nauseum, why even by he of "An Inconvenient Truth", that CO2 precedes warming. See questions 73-76 Pg 31, http://www.climatechange.gov.au/s ites/climatechange/files/document s/03_2013/prof-plimer-answers.pdf - Whereby the graphs are kept deceptively separated. Overlayed, we see CO2 follows warming, not the other way round. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/0 1/30/co2-temperatures-and-ice-age s/

Ophthalmologist radio regular said canola's erucic acid gets trapped in the eyes macula & contributes to degeneration. He said on a number of occasions that he has done many autopsies & found the acid in the macula.

Newbies still think CO2 causes dangerous GW. The 4 main temp data sets concur that there is a pause in GW thereby rendering obsolete the belief that increasing CO2 = increasing temps. Derr!

Yawn, nico, "A reference to a wildly unreliable denialist website.."
The graph I quoted is from this guy, Christopher R. Scotese, & here's his CV: http://www.scotese.com/ScoteseCV. htm (and this the paper Scotese quotes for his graph).
"However, the new results exhibit considerably higher CO2 values during the Mesozoic, and their downward trend with time agrees with the independent estimates of Ekart and others (1999)." http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils /Reference_Docs/Geocarb_III-Berne r.pdf
We remember, of course, that corals evolved in the Ordovician Period when CO2 was about 4,000ppm.

Funny how parts of Uganda can grow bananas, yet other fruit & veges, that should be part of a rounded diet, & can easily fill any nutritional deficiencies seem not to be considered part of the solution in this article
Like, how quick is it to get spinach, parsley, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, beans, peas, papaya & melons up.
Good luck growing bananas on the savannah though. I guess, Gatesy must have opened the wrong Windows search engine.
