Comment posted Fife Council joins Aberdeenshire in asking for suspension of wind farm applications by Jim B.
I was begining to think this was a private club, but to answer the Docs question about the elephant in the room………..
First a bit of chemistry.
Carbondioxide is a stable compound, agreed ?
If I remember my atomic weights correctly, carbon is 14 and oxygen 16. This means that every tonne of carbon that is burned requires 32 tonnes of oxygen to make 46 tonnes of carbondioxide. Thus gradually reducing the oxygen content of the atmosphere. This effect is small at present but will accelerate I am sure.

- Apologies for the arithmetical error.
If nothing else it suggests that continuing to burn fossil fuels is a No No whether climate change is related to increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere or not.
- You guys have been gumming this subject to death for months and yet not one of you seems to have noticed the small elephant standing quietly in the corner of the fossil fuels room!

- Requests to Council Leader for action – now – on new community company offer for Castle Toward
The castle, as it stands today, is not an asset. It has been neglected and apparently needs £4million worth of repairs and upgrading.
Surely this makes it a liability.

Dunoon and Rothesay are connected to the gas grid.
- Ed Miliband does Alan Reid the ultimate favour – cripples the Labour candidate for Argyll & Bute
DL – What is your alternative to continued austerity given the size of the deficit?
Lets not forget that the deficit is the extra amount of money the Government has to borrow each month to fill the gap between income (taxation) and expenditure. This clearly cannot go on for ever. So far they claim to have reduced this by a third which I do not find very impressive.
- Breslin gets no confidence motion in Walsh and McQueen on Area Committee agenda
It has to be said that South Cowal Community Council is somewhat of a Secret Squirrel organisation. Unless you attend you will not know what they are doing. I don’t think there as ever been a report in the Observer on any of their meetings.
I asked the staff of the Lido (village shop) when the SCCC met and nobody knew.
Whether they fairly represent the villagers views I could not say. For myself I thought the Castle Toward project was a good idea but I felt that Dick was not in favour of it and I was not surprised at the outcome. I do feel sorry for Alan Stewart and his team who put in an immense amount of work.
- ‘Named Person’ legislation wreaking havoc in Highland family
Mike, I would not disagree with your assessment of the legislation but something is going on here, someone has an axe to grind. One of the sons is now 18 (presumably too old for a Named Person) and the other 17.
Even if the younger one has an Named Person for a year it does not seem to me to be a reason for decamping to Edinburgh (or anywhere else)!
The story has been (deliberately?) written to give the impression of a sick primary school pupil and his parents being put upon by the SG who have only been in power for 7 years.
Smells fishier than an old trawler to me.
