Comment posted Pilots concerned on wind farm generated air turbulence by Robert Wakeham.
Just spotted your invitation to comment, Halcolh, and I’m too polite to refuse. The times I’ve criticised you it’s because I’ve been quite sure that your pronouncements were half-baked, and it’s rather worrying that you really do seem to believe you speak with great authority, and when others pick holes in what you’e said you sometimes resort to the sort of rudeness that’s really rather childish. Over to you, SR.

- Perhaps what we need is a well informed and diligent anti-bullshit activist – I recollect there used to be one, a good one, but he seems to have bailed out in exasperation but maybe one day he’ll be back…
- I don’t think that your comment is much use, Malcolm, as he seems to be comparing just Australia’s ‘man made’ contribution to world Co2 production with the whole lot – and while this is seemingly intended to reassure a small and reportedly very co2 profligate population in a big country, it’s not representative of the world picture.
You might say that we in Scotland / Britain aren’t, either, but it’s the overall world picture that counts, it’s the whole world that sinks or swims depending on how the population behaves, and nether we nor the Australians can really afford to play the ‘we’re too small to count’ game.
- In recent years it seems to have got easier to build a house in the ‘countryside’ – in Argyll at least, although it does help if you’re building on the site of a previous dwelling.
- No Bill – there’s been quite a lot of intolerance amongst a few commentators on the Dunoon ferry saga on the the views of others, and I don’t apologise for arguing my corner in the face of boorishness.
- I’m not getting involved in the discussion of figures – that’s for yourselves to scratch your heads over – but surely the statement that ‘…the average temperature of the UK has risen and electricity consumption dropped 3% last year..’ might be misleading because – though I’m not a global warming denier – it depends when the year was measured, as we’d just come out of the second of two much colder than usual winters, and our relatively badly insulated houses are one of the biggest energy users.

I sincerely hope that NCH’s ‘problem’ is terminal.
- The view from the Shard’s Floor 68
There’s one line of thought that the fashion for building increasingly deformed ‘look at me’ office towers accurately reflects the warped and bent behaviour of a significant chunk of London’s ‘financial services industry’.
- The view from the Shard’s Floor 68
The skyscraping Shard – to the south of the Thames, and the recent proliferation of other high rise office blocks (some remarkably deformed, like the ‘walkie-talkie’) has started a debate about the lack of a coherent tall buildings planning policy in London – compared with other major European cities – and the damage this is doing to the character of the place.
Will it wind up looking like Beijing or Sao Paolo?
And many of the new and proposed high rise apartment blocks in London are a result of foreign money (much of it ‘hot’) being invested in a steadily spiralling property market.
