    Mass crop failures expected in England as farmers demand hosepipe bans

    Leaked documents predict crop failure rates of up to 50% as water companies resist calls to prioritise food production

    *
    Half of the potato crop is expected to fail as it cannot be irrigated, and even crops that are usually drought-tolerant, such as maize, have been failing.

    Don’t worry, this isn’t actually happening. They’re just measuring the temperature too close to an airfield. Don’t prepare or change  in any way, this always happens and nothing is out of the ordinary. Keep buying stuff as much as possible.

    It has become that now so it hard to genuinely tell what the planet is actually doing and reacting which is important to know.  

    Anytime anyone queries any aspect of the science and the response is to demonise the questioner isn't a good sign for those particular fields.

    If I suggested dinosaurs weren't wiped out by an asteroid because of XYZ, it's unlikely anyone will a accuse me of being an alt right Trumpist or nonsense like that even though the asteroid is the fashionable consensus.

    How dare anyone have an emotional response to the likelihood of their children suffering.

    Beat me to it, shutters really do work, though double glazing with blinds is also effective if you let air in from the  cooler sides of the house.

    Just planning some climbing plants for the south facing terrace doors as well. Should help shade it as the heat gets worse (important to have timer irrigation though). 

    We're also lucky to have skylights that open upstairs and act as a chimney for the hot air.

    It basically encapsulates a chunk of what has been uncovered for last 30 years. It was a great 3 part series.

    It does require someone to actually watch it though, when online denialism only takes moments. Being open minded on an internet forum is a minority sport.

    You don't have to go back that far.  Look up oz bush fires in 1974.  Peanut knows this already.

    They were really small fires :) There's no proof of how much land was even burned. Sensationalist nonsense being dug up, in fact, the measuring tools they used in the 70s simply didn't work that well. The fires were welcomed in many places, and provided much needed entertainment for families.

    Solar panels aren't really off grid though. I am in the process of getting solar panels and they basically need electricity to function. 

    OK.

    Stay on grid, create a set up that allows you to minimise reliance on services. Water, energy etc.

    Or buy lots of Hermes Birkin bags and stick them in a vault.

    NB it is our reliance on fossil fuels that is already and will continue to make us poor.

    As a nation we only pretend we want to be independent. Sucking at oil nations' teats is what we're really built for. 

    We left the EU to show them who is boss and it turns out the answer is also: Not Us. :D 

    National clownery, no wonder we got Boris for a leader. 

    Talking of clownery...

    ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL (July 27, 2022) – A new study, Corrupted Climate Stations: The Official U.S. Surface Temperature Record Remains Fatally Flawed, finds approximately 96 percent of U.S. temperature stations used to measure climate change fail to meet what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) considers to be “acceptable” and  uncorrupted placement by its own published standards.

    Guys guys guys we got it all WRONG. It wasn't HOT, it was just a MISREADING of the thermometer! You can stop sweating now, it's fine. Tell the farmers their crops aren't dying, it's just they're measuring them wrong!!! Huzzah for science!

    If there were records of all the floods,fires and droughts in the last 10,000 years one could possibly say whether the present day is better or worse.

    Why are there not people still living in Göbekli Tepe, Chaco canyon, Ur, Xanadu etc?

    Buddy, there are records. Science is a wonderful thing.

    I must say it is absolutely amazing they know the average global temperature in 1880, to an accuracy of 0.01 degrees.  It's like science fiction coming true before your eyes.

    I must say it is absolutely amazing you know the exact size of bushfires that happened in 1974. 

    You must have spent so much time personally measuring them! It’s like science fiction coming true before your eyes.

    :D

    But remember, kzb has already stated that man made climate change is real. About 100 pages back of time wasting “debate”.

    Sigh, you don't get it do you?

    Some things are natural monopolies and trying to create competition simply doesn't work. Water is a classic example, it would be madness to have multiple companies laying different sets of pipes and building their own reservoirs to provide competition.

    By definition the water industry is a natural monopoly and no amount of regulation, to appease loony free market Tories can change that.

    Monopolies work better in the pubic sector than the private sector.
