But if there is one scientist who knows more about sea levels than anyone else in the world it is the Swedish geologist and physicist Nils-Axel Mörner, formerly chairman of the INQUA International Commission on Sea Level Change. And the uncompromising verdict of Dr Mörner, who for 35 years has been using every known scientific [...]

I think this is somewhat of a Nelson Muntz moment.
From the Telegraph:
A new uniform has been designed for firefighters, including options of full-length skirts, long-sleeved shirts, hijab headscarves and turbans.
Why does this matter?
“Fire prevention is vitally important today as we continue the aim of driving down fire deaths. To achieve this, the fire and rescue service needs employees from all ethnic groups to reflect [...]
You’ll all have heard of Ms Smith’s latest woes on the expenses front.
She’s been caught trying to claim hubby’s taste for pay-per-view Frankie Vaughn as an expense.
Unfortunately that’s the headline news and unfortunately that’s what will be remembered and tittered over.
The real story though is not Mr Smith’s left-handed channel surfing. The real [...]
The soldiers of militant Islam do not hate the West because of Israel, they hate Israel because of the West.
According to Cracked these are the 8 most terrifying places to eat on the planet.
They are mainly in Japan but then you knew that already.
I is speechless but one day I might give #2 a go. I do like Italian and having seen Goodfellas I did pick up a number of cooking tips.
Sense on Carbon, from the Carbon Sense Coalition:
The Carbon Sense Coalition today came out in support of Earth Hour, but said it should be renamed “Blackout Night” and be held outdoors, for the whole night, in mid-winter, on the shortest and coldest day of the year - 22 June in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Chairman of [...]
Stuff the nihilism of the econasties.
As a follow up to this posting, just found this over on Tim Blair.
Now this is worth celebrating, enjoy:
No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the [...]
According to the hectoring Earth Day website:
“Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming”.
What a load of sanctimonious, offensive and downright sinister tosh. But if you want to play that game, lefties, let’s play. I invite as many of you around the world as [...]
This is devastatingly catchy…
Have a good weekend folks…
PS I have been a fan of Nina Persson and The Cardigans since ’bout ‘96. I have a long standing weakness for bands fronted by fit birds. Who doesn’t? But I really do have a weakness. And I mean back to Debbie and the boys… Love might be [...]
GCSE science is now officially bollocks.
But then we knew that way back…
Why is it bollocks? Well… There are many schools of thought here. There is a school of thought that this is an inevitable result of the “everyone gets a prize” mentality of not just Labour but the Tories before them. And of course if [...]
A budget deficit of 13% of GDP?
Barry is spending your future with Italian standards of financial management; and with the GIVE Act, the Obama Youth, the Komosomol, he is expropriating your present.
America, Land of the Free.
It took the British years to understand the horror of the Blair/Brown governments; under Barrys tutulage America is learning [...]
Hot on the heels of the staggering success of Dolly Draper’s Labourlist the loons are at it again. This time in Wales.
Now, I think it is fair to say that the Welsh have a fine and noble tradition of singing and poetry. It is also fair to say that the following is not part of [...]
We are fucked beyond any rational measure…
…in the two years 2009-10 and 2010-11, the government will probably have to raise £350bn.
That is more debt bequeathed to its successor than the total borrowed by successive rulers and governments of Britain between 1691 and 1997, the year Labour was elected.
That is more than it cost to [...]
