A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

"According to the BBC propaganda there are no draw-backs to solar power and Amber Rudd is promising to "unleash a new solar revolution". Heaven spare us from ignorant women, but don't blame me when the lights go out ."

Someone should point her to the output of the local 'Solar meadow' here in Edinburgh.....

...which has suspiciously not been updated for a long time.

"most notes under 100 ¥ (Renminbi ="People's Currenvcy") are counterfeit"

I guess you can tell the difference between real Chinese Yuan notes and counterfeit.

I think I'm correct in saying - It's of note that any foreign currency transaction over about $400USD is state controlled, most notes under 100 ¥ (Renminbi ="People's Currenvcy") are counterfeit - that was the situation across the border from HK last year anyway. Compare that to the "minimum" wages....

Nigeria has a reputation for financial hijinks that pales in comparison to some of the antics of China - fraud is on an epic scale and an economy that's like a very tightly stretched and increasingly UV damaged balloon....

I heard a tale last week of a UK businessman that visited a Chinese factory and realised that the people trying to get him to pay for some exports didn't own the factory and that they'd simply put up temporary signs and paid off the folk there.......

Man visited Hanergy factory
- largely empty
- Their own solar panels were not pointing at the sun set up for show rather than actual generation

Ah yes Tomo.
It's a shoo in to be adapted for CBBC. Nice Little Earner.

Might write one myself, actually.

somehow I doubt Ms. Rowling is worried about George Marshall and chums eating into her royalties. It looks like a variety of vanity publishing from where I'm sat. No doubt they're trawling kiddie climate fiction past BBC producers - eh?

As to the content one does rather suspect that it likely to be more Chris Rapley rather than Shakespeare....

In fairness most children aren't that stupid.
They know that Orcs and Voldemort and Dangerous Climate Change are just monsters made up to scare them for thrills.

But I am surprised that the right-wing readers of the Telegraph aren't lauding a science fiction book that has Government intervention (carbon rationing) as the monster.

It sounds very right-wing to me.
But that just shows that Green is not left-wing - it's something else.

Heh... George Marshall bailing away pointlessly protesting innocence in the Telegraph comments, obviously not willing to declare his activist antics/cv . eesh! talk about denial....

His fellow travelers at Climate Outreach rather give the activist game away.Denier!!! l :-)

My sons (No2 is 19, so no global warming in his lifetime) roll their eyes with boredom whenever I bring up the global warming subject. There's no-one more immune to the glowbull worming message than a bored teen/twenty yo. That said, No1 is fully convinced that Gillard was the victim of dark forces rather than her own lies, incompetence and the will of the people.
