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!

  • May’s Cabinet looking good as it emerges
    Hardly an argument – just an observation.

    At this moment in time I see that I have 6 thumbs up and you have one thumb down.

  • The measure of Britain – who cares about Gibraltar?
    I have to say that I do not understand why Spain wants Gib back apart from sentimentality, ie it used to be part of Spain. It is too small to have any real economic value to Spain. The fact that the Spanish have no inclination to return their 2 African enclaves to their surrounding countries seems illogical to say the least.

    There are no easy answers to problems like these. I would tend to support the view that the will of a majority of the residents should be accepted and supported the Falklands war on that basis.

    Then there is A Salmon’s ( and others ) attitudes to independence in Scotland which is solely based on sentimentality as it makes no economical sense either.

    Is fragmentation of nations/states the best way ahead for the world? Or should we be accepting that the future of the planet lies in alliances and pragmatism rather then historical incidents of history?

    Is the future an enigma wrapped up in a conundrum ?

    You write like an idiot!
  • May’s Cabinet looking good as it emerges
    AS. as you produce more stupidity on here than anyone else, I implore you to take your own advice.
  • The measure of Britain – who cares about Gibraltar?
    Why does Spain want Gibraltar back when it will not give up its 2 enclaves in north Africa?

    Hypocrisy ?
