"Nature is very good at producing bad weather. You can't blame every flood or fire on fossil fuels."

Words of wisdom . . .
Not every one. But how many will be the indirect consequence of using fossil fuels?...

Re: What happened to Australia's climate change election?

It is also news to me too. I am against subsidies of any kind. Let the market decide which energy is cheaper. Don't waste taxpayers' money on subsidizing either coal or green energy. Let them compete and the cheaper energy prevail. When you add all the costs of climate upsets - from floods to bush ...

Re: Do we need NATO?

For most people in Europe WW I was as long ago as the Middle Ages, and even WW II was too long ago to matter anymore. Europe must look ahead, not backwards. If anybody expects Europeans to remain grateful for anything Americans, British or Canadians did in 1939-1945, just forget it. Future relations...

Re: What happened to Australia's climate change election?

My figures related to electricity, not to energy as a whole. In 2015 Portugal's electricity consumption was 46,853 GWh, and production by renewable sources was 25,511 GWh (54.4% of the total consumption). If we talk about total energy dependence, in 2015 Portugal was 78.3% dependent from foreign so...

Re: What happened to Australia's climate change election?

If Australia put your people into poverty by forcing people to pay more for green energy just to do your bit to lower global temperature, but other people do not do their bit to put themselves into poverty so that our descendents in 2100 can feel cooler by 0.05 degrees, are you not being silly? In ...

Re: US Foreign Policy

I used to share that point of view, but now I feel that Trump - or his mob in the Administration - is more likely to start a major war than Hillary ever would. I would not be so sure about that. I do know that the US system of selecting candidates for election to president seem to come up with some...

Re: US Foreign Policy

What the future holds? Unknown, but I'll always consider the belligerent manchild's greatest accomplishment was to deny the presidency to Hillary and the corrupt Clinton machine. I used to share that point of view, but now I feel that Trump - or his mob in the Administration - is more likely to sta...
