  1. Maybe time to dial down the Evil Politicians rhetoric...
  2. Name a world leader who isn't? Anyway, I'm enjoying the book and it touches on a lot of the subjects that we at HPC discuss at length, which I haven't seen mentioned in any other fiction I've read recently (or ever).
  3. nahh it's all good in HPC hood. This the first book that's really touched on climate change and the actions of the wealthy elites in a fictional and engaging way for me. Dissects it from a few angles and has a lot historical information throughout. I didn't know Renminbi actually means 'people's money', for instance. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ministry-Future-Kim-Stanley-Robinson/dp/0356508862/
  4. From the book I keep asking you all the read but everyone ignores me:
  5. I repeat, I would LOVE to see you two on gogglebox All I meant is that if you split there isn't any 'mine' or 'yours' so to speak. One pot. Were you always this generous or only since you got rich?
  6. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-05/swimming-coach-john-wright-accused-of-abusing-boys/100504054 John Wright, Australian swimming coach and child sexual abuser.
  7. I’d like to see you two on gogglebox. When you say you got wealthy and she didn’t, you do realise all marital assets are shared in law?
  8. Just follow the money: https://nypost.com/2021/08/20/gender-ideology-a-boon-to-big-pharma-and-threat-to-parental-rights/amp/ Lupron manufacturer AbbVie made $726 million on the drug alone in 2018. AbbVie has joined other major pharmaceutical companies in lobbying to keep drug prices high while virtue-signaling about diversity and inclusion. Transgender people require lifelong medical support, making them ideal customers for the health-care industry, and the well-documented phenomenon of “peer contagion”—kids pressuring each other into thinking they’re all trans — ensures an endless supply of consumers.
  9. You heard it here folks; can't trust experts, can't become an expert, no one "knows" anything and we may all well be shadows on a cave wall. But first we need to define what IS a CAVE? Do WALLS exist? and remember, no one can agree on shadows at all. The main thing is to Remain Apathetic. Accept life as it is. Buy stuff. Debt is fine. Work until you die. Don't worry about consequences. Consumption is very important and has no negative consequences for anyone and even if it does that's fine. Be productive for your employer. Everything will be ok because finite systems can survive exploitation indefinitely.
  10. Dissent in this context costs lives, unfortunately. I've yet to encounter a skeptic whose house has burned, crops repeatedly flooded, water table evaporated, or other negative impact. Personally I enjoy reading oppositional views. I'm a landlord on HPC But when say, 330 US scientists sign a letter warning Biden about climate impacts, I don't respect the counterpoint of one retired Prof Ray. Show me 330 US scientists of equivalent experience signing a letter to say Dear Biden, nothing to see here! Yours, Science, PS here's our accumulated body of evidence. But there's never any such offering, for the simple reason that it's pure clownery.
  11. Hm yes I know Peter Kalmus is a climate scientist. According to his wiki: He is a data scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an associate project scientist at UCLA's Joint Institute for Regional Earth System Science & Engineering. Kalmus attended Harvard University, where he received his Bachelor of Science in physics in 1997. At Harvard, he used Fourier-transform spectrometry to discover and categorize the quantum-mechanical rotational spectra of several cyanopolyynes which were subsequently found in interstellar clouds.[4] He then taught high school physics in Massachusetts and wrote software in New York City.[5] In 2004 he enrolled in graduate school at Columbia University and received his PhD in physics in 2008. His PhD work involved searching for gravitational waves as a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (thesis: "Gravitational Waves Associated with Soft Gamma Repeater Flares").[6] He continued his work with LIGO as a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology, leading major full-collaboration searches for gravitational waves from magnetars,[7][8][9] gamma ray bursts[10] and supernovae[11] and contributing to the precise calibration of the world's gravitational wave observatories.[12] And Michael Mann is another prominent one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_E._Mann In August 1984 he went to the University of California, Berkeley, to major in physics with a second major in applied math. His second-year research in the theoretical behaviour of liquid crystals used the Monte Carlo method applying randomness in computer simulations. Late in 1987, he joined a research team under Didier de Fontaine which was using similar Monte Carlo methodology to investigate the superconducting properties of yttrium barium copper oxide, modelling transitions between ordered and disordered phases.[13] He graduated with honors in 1989 with an A.B. in applied mathematics and physics.[1] Seems as if physics may be a common starting point? It just seems so very unlikely that people with these backgrounds would deliberately convene with hundreds or even thousands of other academics in order to pull off what must surely be the most audacious con of all time. The sheer logistics involved in a worldwide deception network designed to convince millions of people that oil creates pollution, spring is coming earlier, glaciers are melting sooner, polar bears are starving to death, coral reefs are dying. Whoever is the leader of this gang must surely be a billionaire from all the green money he or she has accumulated. It makes Oceans 11 look tame.
  12. http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/2022/sci/msc-climate-change-science-policy/ https://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-study/study/subject-area/climate-science-pg https://www.durham.ac.uk/study/courses/f645/ https://www.gre.ac.uk/undergraduate-courses/engsci/climate-change-bsc Yeah it's a real freaking mystery 🙉 Skepticism. Ah a connoisseur of True science Sir, please step right this way to the roped off area of the club. I can tell sir is a man of impeccable taste. Shall we start with a drop of our finest Words Don't Mean Anything, followed by some fresh Strawman? Very entertaining though, top marks - you could definitely do good work for the Flat Earth movement.
  13. Neighbour first had his reno plans drafted 2019, corona delays meant it finished this year. He said in 2020 the supply prices to his builder went up 30%, then this year another 40%. Builder ended up doing the job for little to zero profit.
  14. I'm sure I read somewhere on here that September is the container ship cut off for imports in time for Christmas?
  15. Very interesting, also the mention of "gender bending chemicals". Big rise in people identifying as opposite gender these days. We've truly allowed the petrochemical industry free reign on our bodies.
