Wrong again Alan, carbonfibre like glassfibre does not burn. GRP, CRP, KRP etc resins only burn if the resin is flammable, not all are - eg my KRP crash helmet is inflammable not flammable although the resin may fail above 500C.

When this gets re-factored by The Guardian - there's going to be bansturbatory action to stop the sales of washing up liquid.

I notice that Sky news (and the Telegraph) are invoking climate change as relevant those drownings at Camber Sands a few days back ....

In my web wanderings related to VW emissions - I came across some opinion that the" pig pee" / AdBlue metering of exhaust additives from other manufacturers was tuned to emission test requirements to reduce the reservoir refill intervals and that measurements "outside the envelope" would show this....

The sanctimonious waffle about EVs being "zero emission" is used as a stick to beat the vehicles we drive at the moment .... It always has been about where you measure the emissions and nitpicking politicised lawyers.

^^^ What I said when VW/EPA spat first emerged :)

PCar. Downward striking lightning commonly does not hit the highest points of an object. Your explanation also fails when dealing with upward strikes.

You do realise you have contradicted your earlier posts? Are you Richard Murphey's brother?

Interesting claim which means all lightening conductors should be moved lower down buildings; fine to play golf, carry umbrella above you or stand on a roof holding a metal rod above you pointing skywards in a lightning storm. When will your paper of these new findings be published?

Regarding burning blades, what you conveyed was that the blade materials would not burn but perhaps the resin binder might. The photographs definitively show blades burning even if it were only the resin. It has been suggested here that some blades are made of a carbon fibre composite. That will burn.

Wrong again Alan, carbonfibre like glassfibre does not burn. GRP, CRP, KRP etc resins only burn if the resin is flammable, not all are - eg my KRP crash helmet is inflammable although the resin may fail above 500C.

Written before coffee but with brain fully engaged.

I'd suggest multiple coffees might wake up your brain - or did your cat write your post? ;)

You do appear to be intent on confirming you are a troll :)

ACK, fibre glass boats, cars etc do burn, but the actual raw fibres do not. It is the resin binders that burn with copious amounts of acrid fumes.

The Flash Point Temperature of the liquid resins is lower than that of a hot bath. DIY fibreglassing repairs, or canoe building etc has burnt down a lot of garden sheds etc.

AK ignored as he does with all posts that show he is wrong - sandy & tomo yesterday

New Post up at Climate Audit, by Nic Lewis

Was early onset industrial-era warming anthropogenic, as Abram et al. claim?

His final paragraph suggests a bit of conflict for those dedicated to the Consensus.

Re National Grid : The last head, left after this year.
Did he over or under-estimate the power available to the grid ?
He underestimated it ..and thus NG shareholders lost £70m in their part of a subsidy they had to pay to operators to re-start closed down plant.

and now this new head thinks the UNICORNS will turn up with a magic home load balancing software and all will be solved..despite all the immigration we have with their high birthrate.

Suppose she be being super smart ..and bluffing in order to reduce the subsidy demands that conventional power operators will be demanding not to shut down their plants.

golfCharlie. I never did think the combination of rams with virgins should ever be countenanced. St Jeremy must have had his mind on other matters and suffered mind-leak.

We will soon need japanese style body packers on some parts of London's Underground.

ACK, I believe the Tokyo Underground employs people to ram customers into overcrowded trains. If train companies employed rams to treat people like cattle, the RMT would see a demarcation dispute. Would it be for drivers, or guards to welease the wams, and what would Biggus Dickus Bwanson say to all his Virgin employees?

Nicola Shaw, National Grid.

Lest we forget, she is just following in the footsteps of Steve Holliday:

"Era of constant electricity at home is ending, says power chief"

Fortunately, a scan of this article in The Daily telegraph from 2 March 2011 is preserved at WUWT:

Who appoints these geniuses?
