  1. The Scientific Advances’ study’s conclusion is predicated on a single climate model, the Community Earth System Model (CESM), projecting far into the future and it’s also predicated on an amount of ice melt that has not happened in our lifetimes. Even then, the CESM had to have its pump primed with unrealistic meltwater data in order for the researchers to come to the conclusion they got. What they did was to run the model, then add modeled freshwater very gradually to the modeled North Atlantic, presumably simulating a melting of the Greenland ice which might shut down the AMOC. There’s only one problem; the amount of freshwater from melting that they injected into the model is about five times the actual amount of ice available in Greenland to melt." So it's very much a fake news scenario. https://climaterealism.com/2024/02/no-cnn-and-other-media-outlets-climate-change-is-not-causing-the-ocean-circulation-to-collapse/
  2. As far as I am aware from the scant info on the news item I read - it's that the gendarmes/police will have mobile access to the information which they haven't had before, some sort of mobile device - tablet perhaps?
  3. I've not got a wood pellet stove/heater nor any plans to get one, but you should be aware of the variable cost of the pellets. https://www.connexionfrance.com/article/French-news/If-you-heat-French-home-with-wood-pellets-now-may-be-good-time-to-buy https://www.lemonde.fr/en/economy/article/2022/11/14/amid-europe-s-energy-crisis-france-s-wood-pellet-industry-is-feeling-the-heat_6004266_19.html Pellet stoves got popular, now the supply side for pellets is getting tighter. If you do get to using wood pellets be aware of the dangers of storing them - they can give off carbon monoxide and there have been fatalities involved.
  4. Having a fake driving licence card won't cut it from this year - the police/gendarmes will have mobile access to the databases.
  5. Two recent events - the price of the diesel fuel they must use, the marginal profitabilty of their boats depends to a large extent on the price of the fuel, a few cents per litre increase means they are running at at a loss because of the amount they use. And Biscay fishermen are on a month's lay off to protect dolphins which get caught in the nets - breeding season etc.
  6. "I cannot understand why the system in the USA can select a convicted sex offender" You need to understand that Donald Trump is not a convicted sex offender. It was a civil case not a criminal prosecution. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2023/05/16/no-trump-is-not-required-to-register-as-a-sex-offender-fact-check/70217795007/ Now let's look at some real lying and corruption with all the bank records and copies of cheques now in the public domain. Yes it's the lifting of the stone that the Biden Crime Family has been hiding under and look what slithered out ! "Joe Biden received $40,000 in laundered China money from the account of his brother, James Biden, and his sister-in-law, Sara Biden, in the form of a personal check (including an image of the cheque) https://oversight.house.gov/release/comer-reveals-how-joe-biden-received-laundered-china-money/ And that's just the tip of the Biden family chinese-dollar iceberg. Why hasn't Biden been prosecuted, impeached, etc?
  7. Why on earth would would any sane person in the USA vote for Biden? Apart from the media concocted "Orange Man Bad" faction of course!
  8. Erratum - I have just been corrected by MOH - we have been transferred from the 15 year registration register to the life registration register or list or whatever.😠
  9. We contacted our local authority where we have been registered to vote for the last 14 years and they have told us that we are still registered, we will be transferred to the 15 years list and there will be no requirement for us to register every year.
  10. Those of us who use MF may have noticed recently as I have. the disjointed and slightly odd forecasts of temperatures. Examples include the 7 day forecast not matching the daily forecast and the 15 day not agreeing with thre 7 day forecast. There could be a reason for this:- “Staff at Météo-France will go on strike this week, claiming ‘absurd mistakes’ are being accelerated by loss of human oversight” “Since Nov 13, weather forecast data models have been crunched together via an algorithm and then directly sent to Météo-France’s internet site or mobile application. The software that has led to the strike has predicted that the eastern city of Strasbourg will hit a baking 28C on Dec 9 despite it currently experiencing freezing temperatures” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2023/12/04/algorithm-replaced-weather-forecasters-december-heatwave/ Before the time of storm Ciaran I started using ventusky.com and have found it very accurate as regards local actual and forecast temperature. You get temps, winds direction/strength, baro pressures for your location and loads more. Meteo is basically not worth using a the moment.
  11. It's not quite as simple now as how cajal describes it, it was before 2007 when I had an enduring power of attorney over my mother's affairs, the subject has now got much more complicated and has introduced the issue of mental capacity. For information on POA's explained in plain language see this:- https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/information-guides/ageukig21_powers_of_attorney_inf.pdf As you will see when you read it - you need to act now while your mother has mental capacity. Getting a solicitor to assist is probably a good idea, particulary with buying your sister out of her share of the property.
  12. "Activist" As soon as anybody is introduced as an "activist" for any cause - I reach for the off switch or change the channel.
