    Still needs around 17 Senate Republicans to vote with the Democrats, Red.
    Lot will depend on the Senate Republican leader who hates Trump.

    My politics are centre-right in the UK, voting Tory. However, if I were voting in USA it would’ve been Democrat.

    You’ve got to be careful with language Paul, don’t stoop to Trump’s level. I too was surprised so many voted Trump, may well have been because they were conned in to thinking Socialism was coming. Don’t be too hard on people being conned; so many English voters were conned in to voting Labour. Think if Bernie Sanders wasn’t around fewer would’ve voted Republican.

    Agreed Red, hope Trump faces justice.
    Whether the senate will vote the same way is doubtfut though. Important, as it’ll stop TRump from running for President again.

    Why are fish fingers frowned on. One of my favourites.

    Something else I can recommend is crisp sandwiches!

    British food is best. ;-)

    I went through a stage of not liking veg too, but got a couple of tips:

    1) Saw Jamie Oliver say one way to make kids enjoy veg (particularly carrots) was to cut them up in different shapes. Makes them more interesting – a psychological thing.
    Wondered whether it would work for me… and it did.

    2) One reason why I grew up loving roast dinners was (although not keen on veg) I couldn’t get enough mint sauce and so particularly loved lamb. Often asked whether I wanted lamb with my mint sauce. Now have veg with vast majority of main meals, every one of them with mint sauce!

    “cooked properly” means different things to different people though Paul. Each to his own, but I rarely eat out. One reason is because I find the meat invariably underdone.

    Certainly if everyone had followed your philosophy Tank, the NHS would already be overwhelmed. :negative:

    I’d rather have a roast dinner or cod and chips.

    Homer,
    Over millions / thousands / hundreds of years the average temperature has gone up and down in waves. Each year’s temperature likely to be within the curve of that particular moment in time. Therefore when temperatures are on an upward curve and at a time when average temperatures are at its highest “since records began”… It is not surprising five of the hottest years since records began have been in the last ten years. Indeed more like odds-on shots than 100/1.

    What “since records began” means is another question. Science has told us roughly what the average temperature was in the 1800s, thousands or even millions of years ago. So why keep it to 50 or so years?

    For sure climate change is happening, but climate change has happened for hundreds, thousands and millions of years. So the question should really be…

    Is recent climate change due primarily to the human race?
    In my opinion it is due to humans. However I don’t think it should be thought of as fact… And doesn’t deserve to be twisted one way like imo it’s been on the BBC and other media.

    “My sweet Lord”. :wacko:

    Yes, I agree 50 years climatalogically is yesterday, so why do climate journalists and scientists only go back one day, Drone?… Or even less than one day!

    Why do we hear about how much ice has melted from the Arctic “since the 1970’s“? When the amount of ice had in fact grown significantly between 1930 and the 1970’s. Indeed, I remember in those 1970’s my teacher (and scientists) using that very fact as evidence of a possible new ice age.

    So why do Shukman and co use the 1970’s as a cut off point? Could it be because the 1970’s had abnormally large amounts of ice around the Arctic and suits their cause more than going back further? Should they not go back more than one day too? :negative:

    Whenever just 50 years history suits the climate change arguement they’ll use it.
    Whenever 50 years history doesn’t suit, then the old “50 years is yesterday” arguement comes out.

    All I am asking for is a fair debate.

    Be fair befair,
    For snow to happen at all it has to be cold.
    Therefore snow can be about climate.
    And to have a lot of snow it has to be very cold.

    Snow may not be uncomman in some regions of Spain, Drone; but you’re making it sound like just a sprinkling.

    I was going through different TV News programmes and it was either Euronews or France 24 who were saying… Some regions of Spain had their first sight of snow in a generation. But the main point is this was not just snow, it was Spains worst snow storm in 50 years.

    Yes, 33/1 or 50/1 shots do occasionally win / happen and I am not a climate change denier; but can you not see the irony here.

    Spain – that’s Spain‘s worst snow storm in 50 years happening less than a month since we were told snowy UK winters could become a thing of the past due to climate change. Restricted only to higher ground up north and Scotland.

    Every time anything in this whole world that just might be happening “because of climate change” they make a point of telling us. So when something does not seem to fit that view – and in order to be fair – why don’t journalists make that point?

    Suspect the experts will come up with some reason why it all happened due to climate change. ;-)
