    That's at least 2 sailors being flown out, but.. no mention by Holly of the hundreds of PR people, world press crews and their entourages, throngs of gullible climate activists, not to mention shady representatives of transnational energy consortiums and their staff, plus the politicians of all shades ( but especially ultra-radical green marxists) and their various press people, security staff, it goes on and on.. the whole absurd circus must have the carbon footprint of a F1 Grand Prix race!
    Why don't you put your money where your mouth is and provide us with some links that prove that we do not have a problem with the climate? I am asking for links from genuine, peer reviewed scientific articles, carried out by REAL scientists, using REAL data and published in reputable scientific journals. Don't bother sending nonsense from deluded idiots such as James Dellingpole or Lawson etc, and don't bother trying to claim that 'all these scientists are in on the hoax' This is just bull-shit and you know it. The science is clear, and has been for many years, it's just that it doesn't suit your particular set of prejudices. You are a real deluded fool

    She should have a quick change of plan and sail at full speed to the Amazon and campaign to stop the fires.

    Fools are relatively harmless when they just sound off on web forums, but dangerous when they are shamelessly used by charlatans to get into power.

    I remember reading about this but can't remember the figures. You'll be able to comment I'm sure - isn't the new 'low sulphur' fuel oil still about 10 x as sulphury (I think I've just invented a word...) as diesel?

    IIRC it was theorised that the move to lower sulphur fuel oil is a step in the right direction, but won't have the immediate and noticeable impact that people are hoping for.

    The link I posted in #12 says sulfur content will be cut from 3.5 to 0.5%, which if I remember correctly was what we all burnt before the universal introduction of ULSD. So you are correct, about 10 times the content of road fuel.

    Whether you have a good understanding or not of climate change, you have to agree that the transatlantic stunt has increased public awareness of the biggest problem facing mankind. It could have backfired although the choice of boat minimised that risk. Some of the studies being undertaken do look odd and should be questioned. Regrettably, they provide material for the deniers to capitalise on so deflecting public opinion from the main issue. That is the basic fact that man is having an effect on climate with the potential to cause immense harm to future generations. Those who try to argue otherwise have their heads in the sand. As it becomes warmer, they will find it increasingly uncomfortable.

    The title of this thread is rather silly. If the intention is to discuss climate change then the thread should be transferred to the Climate Change forum.
