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!

- Nimble SNP make mayhem at Westminster over EU referendum
That does not imply that the 52% agree with all the SNP policies. There will be some who want to leave the EU.
I suppose as great supporters of the EU, the SG will be willing to chip in towards the extra billions demanded by the 1st December.
No? I rather thouht not.

He hasn’t gone yet – many a slip twixt cup and lip and all that.
Still he will go down in history as the nearly man. If only he had done his homwork in the first place.
- Argyll Flyer to the rescue in shipwreck incident at the Gantocks
Whilst I cannot comment on the size,type of boat etc. as I didn’t see it. I did however witness most of the rest of the incident. The word on the street was that it was one of the smaller Creel boats.
The Flyer caught my attention because of her strange manoeuvres off of Alexandra Parade to the north of the pier – reason unknown.
Meanwhile south of the pier at this point, the small boat crew had scrambled out of the water and were standing on the concrete base of the light tower, safely above the water level although the tide was coming in quite fast. As you say the Flyer then hung about the area of the Gantocks and eventually the RIB arrived but could not take the 2 men off because of the sea state.
The Chopper arrived shortly afterwards and winched the 2 men off the base of the tower. By this time the water was close to the level of the tower base.
At high tide, a few hourrs later, the waves were breaking against the tower more than halfway up so all in all the two guys were extremely lucky, particularly if the BBC story about the cops seeing it on the CCTV system is correct.
I took photos but I only had a compact with me and the conditions defeated it and me.
( I would say that the phrase,”Clinging to the rocks” was a bit of an exageration in this case. )

JT – What would you know about any of that?
- New figures out on life expectancy in Scotland
Have you asked yourself where the money for the 2 new Calmac ferries will be coming from?
Hasn,t the SG just been given the power to borrow on the money markets?
I don’t see how voting yes would have made any difference!
