Comment posted Pilots concerned on wind farm generated air turbulence by Scots Renewables.

Mr. Blix is of course convinced that wind turbines are weapons of mass destruction. His debating style is irascible to say the least.

  • Your are also lacking a total for your cumulative emissions what happened to the other 28+%

    erm . . . it’s the total for the other countries that didn’t make the top ten. As you say, blatantly obvious.

  • And what a fine tag team you and Malcolm make 😉
  • I presume you don’t like being referred to as an ‘anti-wind activist’ – but that is what essentially you are, as demonstrated by your support for CATS and Trump and your gleeful participation in every anti-wind thread on this blog.

    As I didn’t mention you by name I don’t see what you are getting your knickers in a twist about anyway, but to spare your sensibilities the phrase ‘Scottish anti-wind activist’ has been replaced by the word ‘someone’.

    As for ‘the article is riddled with mis-information‘ – why not prove it instead of resorting to throwing mud in the hope that some will stick. The source of the figures in the article is quoted and there are plenty of other sources which show that to date the cumulative responsibility for the post-industrial rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration rests squarely with the developed nations.

    (There is a more detailed analysis of historic emissions HERE)

    I understand that you don’t like the article because it contains an argument that undermines your frequently re-iterated ‘no point in doing anything, it’s all China’s fault’ argument. However, you need to accept that you are not going to convince everyone that you are right about everything. If you are going to resort to slagging me off with a flood of unsupported allegations whenever I publish something you disagree with then I have to conclude that you have indeed joined Malcolm’s tag team.

  • You should try reading further than the headlines and soundbites occasionally Malcolm.

    The article Malcolm is referring to can be read here.

  • Thanks Peter, excellent data. It does not give the historic totals however, which need to be taken into account if – like some on here – we want to play the blame game.

  • Russell admits vehicle element of former Dunoon ferry was indeed publicly funded
    A threnody is a song, hymn or poem of mourning composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person.

    Quite appropriate. The promise that was the original ForArgyll is indeed quite dead.

    I think I will stick to the Cowal Courier from now on. That’s a proper news site that seems to have your measure.

    Toodle pip!

  • Russell admits vehicle element of former Dunoon ferry was indeed publicly funded
    Oh do cheer up Newsroom! The hybrid ferries are non-military ships being built on the Clyde. Surely something to cheer about?

    Re. your concerns about staff training – I think you will find that staff require retraining whenever a new vessel is brought into service . . . each boat is different.

    And please do stop all this ‘we hear rumours’ rubbish. No-one believes you. Come up with facts and their sources like a real journalist or stop smearing doom and gloom. Less fuel is less fuel. And the new ferries are also designed to have lower maintenance costs.

    Now, here’s some more potential good news on the ship technology front for Scotland . . . CMAL has been commissioned to carry out a feasibility study for Scottish Enterprise to evaluate the technical and commercial possibilities of using hydrogen fuel cells to power zero emission ferries. If this goes ahead it could put Scotland at the forefront of another new technology, with the consequent design, development and manufacturing of hybrid engines being located here. Great news – though I expect ForArgyll will want to talk it down.

  • New Mobile Theme for ForArgyll.com
    The mobile version isn’t triggered by my iPad, which is a good thing – but it does come up in an iPhone emulator I tried.

    Strangely enough specific mobile versions of websites (as opposed to apps – which are here to stay) may be a relatively short-lived phenomenon. As bandwidth on phones increases dramatically and most displays become HD 1024 pixels wide or more so standard websites become more and more useable. I don’t come across many that don’t display well on the iPad.

    A mobile version was far more essential on older 320 pixel devices like Nokias, but these will die out. The non-mobile version of this site (for example) is quite useable on a new smartphone once it is rotated horizontally.

    Apps that do specific things on mobile devices are another matter – they are definitly here to stay. And for blog sites like this the mobile version definitley increases useability (but see below).

    Some feedback – I couldn’t view the comments on the mobile version, but I was using an emulator rather than an actual smartphone. Can other people view and post comments OK on the new mobile site using an iPhone or Andriod phone?

  • Clyde shipyards at risk – news by year end
    Just testing the comments function on the mobile version of the site.

  • Scottish Conservatives underline common ownership of Saltire
    It is Scottish Labour that really needs to up its game dramatically if it wants to keep a credible presense in Holyrood in the 2016 election. What Ruthie and the Scottish Conservative Party do is of little relevance.

    According to Newsnet Scotland a recent poll shows Westminster voting intentions in Scotland as:

    SNP 39%
    Labour 33%
    Conservative 16%
    LibDem 6%
    Others 7%

    If this doesn’t ring alarm bells for Labour nothing will.
