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!

“but worst of all a return to the 50s 60s and 70s of extreme left wing socialism – frightening !”
Mind you the capitalist system hasn’t been a great success either with the banks going down due to greed and having to be rescued by the proletariat.
Maybe it is time for them to take the upper hand for a spell.
Interesting conundrum communism didn’t work, socialism didn’t work capitalism didn’t work, Tony Blair’s 3rd way didn’t work.
Is there a fourth way that will work?

I agree with your assessment, however.

Has anybody stopped to think whether Mr. Lochhead has any right to be there under EU Law?
Scotland is only a member by virtue of being part of the UK so it seems quite logical to me that a UK government representative should officiate, particularly since it involves all UK fishermen.
- Take a tour with the Transport Minister on visit to MV Loch Seaforth at Port Glasgow
To be pedantic for a moment,, I am not sure that the Loch Seaforth was ever tied up in Port Glasgow. As far as I am aware the Greenock/Port Glasgow boundary currently runs along the centre line of the drydock. The shoreline to the east of the dock (formerly Lithgows) is parkland and new housing and there are no facilities for tying up something the size of LS until you reach Ferguson’s shipyard. If she was tied up to the west of the dock she must have been in Greenock.
A small point but if such basic information is incorrect how can we take the rest as verbatim?
